The Pronunciation Workshop Program has helped me to gain confidence when I am speaking, and connect with others easier! Working with Paul directly has also been wonderful. I strongly suggest this training to anyone who wishes to improve their English and communication skills.
Thank you very much for the wonderful training today. I spoke with some of my native speaker friends, gave them some examples of how you fixed my pronunciation and they were very impressed (especially with the word "Where"!!).I would also like to say that I find your enthusiasm for your job very inspiring, as repeating the same things and correcting similar mistakes, hour after hour, day after day...year after year, as if it is your first time! You make the person in front of you feel very special and the center of your attention - it seems to be something very difficult to achieve and maintain. You really Rock!!! (with a strong "r" sound)!!! No wonder why everybody has strong positive comments for your work!I am looking forward to our next session!
Paul Gruber’s Pronunciation Workshop Training has been the heart of our ESL program at the PEACE Center in Lake Forest, California. Many people have been helped by changing their pronunciation habits and facial movements and have become better communicators in English. We like the materials because Paul uses real sentences and patterns from everyday life… even when he is making a pronunciation point, the words make sense and can be used in everyday interactions.
The Pronunciation Workshop Training Videos are an invaluable aid to improve American English pronunciation. It has personally helped me a great deal to improve my American accent. I enjoyed all that I learned in Paul’s course. The most important achievement for me, was that the course helped me to eliminate my fear of mispronouncing words in public. That has provided me with an immense boost of confidence. Today, I feel more comfortable when speaking with Americans, and I am capable of recognizing any pronunciation slips when I hear them. Thank you so much for all your help!
Dear ESL Teachers, Directors, and Coordinators of Adult Education: Paul Gruber’s Pronunciation Workshop video series is the best, most energizing series of its kind. In fact, it is, to the best of my knowledge, the only one of its kind. Paul himself is one of a kind when it comes to getting down to the essential problems new English speakers encounter as they continue their American journey. He presents the sessions in such a way as to connect, attract, and correct. They are both fun and challenging for the ESL students. As an adult coordinator for the largest adult learning center in the state of Oklahoma, serving over 2,500 ESL students last fiscal year, I can speak from personal experience when I say that this series has both energized and fine-tuned our students’ English-speaking abilities. It has both lifted their spirits and challenged them by speaking directly to their most commonly-committed pronunciation errors. Put simply, Gruber’s course is nothing short of terrific. It has been an integral part of our ESL classes and our teachers’ lesson-planning for over two years now. We at the OCCC Adult Learning Center have found Pronunciation Workshop to also be a great retention tool for our ESL students who don’t want to miss even one class. I notice that students look forward to the weekly sessions in the classroom, plus they have grown in self-confidence in their ability to communicate effectively in their lives outside the classroom. If you are looking for a video series that is worth the money and will have a tremendous impact on your students and faculty, I can assure you that Paul Gruber’s Pronunciation Workshop will be your Best Investment!
Your Pronunciation Workshop video program is an EXCELLENT course to improve American English pronunciation. It beats all other pronunciation courses, and it covered everything I needed to learn how to pronounce words. It has personally helped me a great deal to improve my American accent. Even though I have been living in the US for 3 years, I still needed to improve my pronunciation! Paul, you VERY CLEARLY explain in your course all of the details in a slow understandable manner how to speak with perfect pronunciation and the sounds of English. You made a really great course and I recommend it to everybody!
I love your video program, it is so good and very, very helpful. I am Chinese, and I know that your program is much needed here in the Asia market. There are so many people that have serious pronunciation problems because they were never taught how to speak English correctly when they learned English. Please say hello to Paul for me, he is so great!
What can I say about Mr. Gruber? He is my teacher and is so important in my life because of all that I have learned from him. My pronunciation used to be poor and now it has really improved. Now I understand words better and he encourages me to continue speaking in English. According to me, when new students begin to learn English they should definitely take the Pronunciation Workshop Program.
I am happy to say that I am rating Pronunciation Workshop's training course as the ABSOLUTE BEST OUT THERE to help with Standard American English Pronunciation. As a Speech Language Pathologist professional, I have tried pronunciation programs that were complicated and difficult to use when working with accent reduction clients. However, Paul has developed an EXCELLENT and EASY WAY to assist those, with accented speech, to experience success. TRY IT!! You will be glad you did!!
I even bought the course as a gift for my friend because it helped me to improve my accent a lot. I really enjoyed all that I learned with Paul’s course. I'm an international student in college and I was always afraid to read aloud in class or to talk to new people because of my accent. This system really worked for me and for another friend at my college as well. Thanks Paul! You are incredible!
I am writing to say that the Pronunciation Workshop is the most helpful for Chinese speakers. Paul Gruber clearly shows us the correct positions of our mouth to make all of the sounds in English. He also reminds us when we make the wrong sounds. I thank you so much!
Paul really has a lot to teach me, and to think that I thought I almost knew it all! I'm enjoying your program tremendously!
You have vanished my fears in terms of speaking English and teaching it to my ESL students here in New York. Indeed, the Pronunciation Workshop has boosted my self-confidence. A million thanks!
In 15 entertaining and challenging video episodes, Paul gives a Complete Course in pronunciation which can be enjoyed by all students of English, from beginners to advanced speakers. For many years, Pronunciation Workshop has continued to be a tremendous asset to my ESL Classes and that of all my colleagues who use it at our school. Paul Gruber has done a superb job and is filling a yearning in our students that has up until now remained unsatisfied. These videos have energized our classes, and have created a new confidence in our students, both in and outside of the classroom. The Pronunciation Workshop Program has also helped our Adult Education Program with a boost in student retention. Paul Gruber has done something that none of the plethora of pronunciation resources which we’ve used in the past has been able to do: provide the teacher with a fun, engaging, and focused series which can be neatly presented as a one or two-semester course. Even more surprising to me is that the students aren’t the only ones learning; I, as both an English speaker and teacher continue to enjoy learning, along with my students, the ‘Speech Rules of American English’ from this gifted speech expert and masterful teacher.
As an ESL/EFL teacher and a Director of Studies working in South-East Asia and China for many years, I’ve found that your Pronunciation Workshop Training Course is the most valuable and effective training program among those available in the market. Your methods and lessons have really helped many non-native English speakers from Asia not only quickly fix many of their long lasting English pronunciation problems, but also significantly improve their English speaking skills. The end result is that after a couple of months diligently working with your American Accent training techniques, many of my ESL/EFL students have drastically improved their spoken English with a higher level of clarity and accuracy with reference to their pronunciation of English consonants, vowels and word and syllable stress. Your training has helped my students communicate in English clearly with confidence. What is very interesting is that for those students who did not necessarily want to reduce or get rid of their accent, they are at last now, able to speak English correctly even though they still have retained their Asian accent thanks to your lessons! For them your course has worked like a charm! Needless to say, I will recommend your courses to both English learners as well as “non-native” local English teachers in all my current and future ESL/EFL training projects in Asia.
In my English class, we come from different countries and we have a great diversity of pronunciations and accents. I’m very thankful to Mr. Paul Gruber for his pronunciation and American accent course. We find it hard to pronounce words like Americans, but with Paul’s video course we learn how to say words correctly, how to pronounce vowels and sounds, how to move our lips, and much, much more!
Paul, you are a great teacher, who just transformed me into another great teacher! Yes, with the newly acquired American Accent, now I have many more students waiting to attend my next session. I am an English teacher here in India and thanks to you I have hiked my fees for the English Course I offer, and the demand only keeps going up. The credit goes all to you and your outstanding training! Thank you!
Terrific! I have taken your video course and live training sessions. I literally see, hear and feel a significant improvement in my English skills and pronunciation. What a difference. Thanks!
Thanks to the Pronunciation Workshop Course, I was able to pass my USMLE Step 2 CS Exam, and it helped me greatly with my communication with patients. As an international physician working in America, I was not always understood. This can be a problem, when dealing with families from many different backgrounds. Working with Paul's videos was a fun and easy way for me to change my accent. I also signed up for Live Training and learned so much. I strongly feel all internationally trained doctors and medical staff should take this program. Thanks so much!
This past Christmas became a changing point in my efforts when "Santa" brought me a Paul Gruber's Pronunciation Workshop! I have been traveling with my husband from state to state lately and it seems a miracle has happened! I have been using the course for only a month and I am not hearing any more polite responses about "my lovely accent". As a Psychologist and English Teacher for Beginners up to Intermediate Level, I taught adults in Siberia, Russia, and I worked with people who needed English for business, studying or traveling. Three years ago when I came to live in the USA permanently, everything changed! I kept hearing things like "Oh what a lovely accent! Where are you from?" every time I spoke to somebody. I got tired of hearing these comments quickly and tried to correct my speaking, unfortunately with poor results. I encourage anyone in Russia or any Slavonic language country who is thinking seriously about finding a good job on an international level, studying or conducting business to consider this course. My observation is that no one abroad will care too much to understand you. It is your concern to make yourself understandable if you want to succeed. This program is "very, very, very rewarding"!
Communication skills are extremely important for me and I am grateful for your English improvement program. Russia is my native country and now I am living in Minnesota. I got my second Masters Degree in Holistic Health Care Studies and I am recently working as a Holistic practitioner. The Pronunciation Workshop Course was so very helpful and I really appreciate how convenient and easy it is!
I used Paul Gruber’s DVD in 2009 to improve my pronunciation and American accent. This helped me get a basic understanding of the American Accent. After using the DVD for 2-3 months I took the one-on-one instructional training with Paul and that made a big improvement in my accent and pronunciation. I strongly recommend the use of the DVD and the instructional training by Paul Gruber to anyone who wants to learn and speak in American Accent.
I grew to love the Pronunciation Workshop Program! I have finally corrected my "hopeless" accent that I have had for decades. You have a way of breaking down the long and difficult sounds of English into small manageable parts. Your Live Training has been extremely productive and it has tremendously increased my confidence with my work. Thank you for your help.
People around me have recognized the improvements with my English! This is the best program I have ever seen. I think that many foreign speaking people would benefit from this course if they only knew about it. I am a Medical Doctor from Kazakhstan, immigrated to Canada 4 years ago and decided to confirm my medical diploma. I was involved with many different preparation courses where I saw how foreign speaking people were struggling with their English Pronunciation. I found the course to be extremely helpful to me. Working with the challenging sounds and in seeing my progress I think your training is just great! Thank you so much for making such an amazing course!
The live training that I had with Pronunciation Workshop was amazing. They demonstrated to me how experienced they are at detecting pronunciation problems. I’ve been here in the states for many years, yet, with just one session, they were able to pick specific words and accent issues and slice them in a very organized and systematic manner. The training is fun and I really look forward to the next ones.
I do not usually like to publicize my photo, but I am happy to do so if it would encourage more people to try this excellent course which can really make a difference in their lives. Many other programs I bought have shown pronunciation; however, they were unable to teach me how to produce the correct sounds. I have been looking for good pronunciation teaching material for years and have never seen anything even close to this before. Your training sessions are FUNNY, EASY and most importantly, EFFECTIVE. For the first time in years, your videos made me aware of exactly where my problems were and how to correct them. I just want to thank you for your wonderful Pronunciation Workshop Video Course which has helped me so much. I wish I had known about your program years earlier. You have surpassed my expectations for sure!
The Pronunciation Workshop Course gave me my life back. Thank you so much for helping me in such a profound way. I have been through a lot in my life. On February 22, 2010, I was inside of a Michael's Craft Store when an elderly woman drove her car through the front window, into the store and ran me over, dragging me across the store and pinning me under her car. I sustained a severe brain injury and other injuries. I suffered from aphasia, dysarthria, memory problems, and had great difficulty speaking and being understood. I thought my life was over. Then, I was introduced to your Pronunciation Workshop Course through a local school. Slowly, I learned how to speak clearly again using your Video Classes…and eventually, I became a volunteer teacher at the ESL school. I found by helping foreign students with their speech and pronunciation, I was helping myself improve even more. Today, I am doing a lot better and I cannot thank you enough. Please share my story with others. Even though we have never met in person, I want everyone to know how you helped me. I hope you share my story with others. God bless you and take care.
Thank you so very much for giving me much confidence when I speak in English! I passed all steps of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and have my MD certified here in the US. The more I study your program, the more I enjoy the way you teach. It is simple, easy and very effective! I believe that your program is extremely helpful for the USMLE Step 2, Clinical Skills Assessment, which requires that examinees speak clear English and have very effective communication skills during the patient encounter. I am going to recommend that my sister use your program to improve her English as well. Thank you again and have a great day!
Your skill in coaching proper English pronunciation has enabled me to perform better as a physician. In addition, your excellent medical vocabulary has truly helped in communicating with my patients and colleagues. I wanted to genuinely express my gratitude to you for being such a wonderful "pronunciation" teacher and by helping so many people motivated to master the English language.
The changes in my pronunciation worked!!! I just passed my USMLE Step 2 CS Exam! Thanks to you guys, you made it so much easier for me. I suppose all the extemporaneous speaking helped while interacting with my patients. I’m still in Minneapolis preparing for the long winter. I just wanted you to know that I am really happy and glad with my results and to say thank you!
When you manage to say the word “world” correctly, for the first time in your life, you will understand what I mean, when I say “you have found a truly remarkable training course with the outstanding results that you were promised. Paul communicates his knowledge with so much enthusiasm, humor and such wonderful simplicity, you really don’t feel like you’re watching a training session, it is more like spending time with an old friend. Paul doesn’t just teach us how to improve our pronunciation; he does so in a manner that is relevant, meaningful, and memorable. I am so grateful that someone out there has cared enough to pour his heart onto those videos and help so many people to be better understood.
In an unbelievable short span of time, I am now always understood by patients and coworkers. Paul’s Pronunciation Workshop program helped me to completely eliminate the large and small accent issues I had. There were big variances in my accent which I perceived, but did not know how to rectify. There were also many other pronunciation issues that I never recognized. I was often asked to ‘repeat myself’ which was very frustrating. Paul, you are the best!
Mr. Gruber is one of the most highly-skilled specialists I have ever worked with. Apogee Physicians has had a long standing history with Pronunciation Workshop as Mr. Gruber has assisted many foreign-born doctors with communication concerns. The Apogee Physicians’ Gateway to America International Program and I have been associated with Mr. Gruber for the past number of years. I have personally seen him guide International Medical Graduates, who are seeking to secure a residency in the United States, overcome major accent issues and cultural hindrances. Paul Gruber has been a consistent trainer, and has shouldered all the responsibilities of securing a successful outcome for Apogee Hospitalists in the area of accent reduction, and he does this all with a pleasant smile and an optimistic demeanor. Besides being a high-spirited teacher, Paul has been phenomenal in giving the doctors innovative tools in order to achieve professional excellence in their work environment and confident social skills. Since contracting with Pronunciation Workshop, all the Apogee Physicians who have participated in his training have had 100% success thanks to the creative ideas that Paul has personally developed in his long-standing career. Paul Gruber and his company have been an asset to the retention department of Apogee by insuring that international doctors who struggled with conversation or articulation were given the necessary skill sets to overcome accent issues. Mr. Gruber is a team player, and understands that he is a crucial part of a doctor’s acculturation and assimilation process. I highly recommend Paul Gruber and Pronunciation Workshop to any organization seeking to empower their employees with the necessary proficiency in the arena of communication and comprehension.
This is perhaps one of the countless complimentary e-mails that you receive. Significant improvements have been noticed in just three weeks. I have already made several recommendations to friends and colleagues. I've been a physician in private practice for 8 years. I am from China and have lived in the United States for 19 years. English has never been a problem for me, nor has it hampered me in any fashion. I bought your DVD not out of necessity but out of curiosity and desire to further improve. I wish you more success in reaching out to more and more non-native English speakers. Thank you for this phenomenal course.
I got my Step 2 CS results today and I passed it!!! I know that if you would not have been there for me with your valuable advice and patience to improve, I would not have been able to make it. It is not only my hard work but yours too that made this exam come true. I got a higher performance in my Spoken English Proficiency. I can only say “There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can't move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.” I appreciate your efforts to improve the skills of other physicians too! Thanks once again! X
This program is phenomenal. I tried many different methods and Pronunciation Workshop is the best. The course is very well structured and presented in a logical manner. The material you presented is easy to understand and concentrates on the most critical points of my speech. I think you easily recognize the areas any non-native speaker should concentrate on and you deliver results fast. Great course! Thanks!
Despite a busy life, I would advise internationally-practicing physicians to take this course. Paul has special skills to help with the most complex medical terminology and scientific language. I wish I would have taken it earlier! I have been practicing medicine for years and I occasionally encountered colleagues and patients who displayed a polite facial expression when I talked because they didn’t really understand me. I took this course and it tremendously helped me with communication with patients and colleagues. I also received a lot of compliments during conference presentations. Prior to taking this course, I contacted, screened, and interviewed several organizations for improvement of pronunciation, however this course is the most helpful and professionally designed program for a physician with an extremely busy-life in a private oncology practice. Thank you to Pronunciation Workshop!
Thanks to Paul, I received TWO Pre-Match Residency Offers and am now working in a New York hospital! My pronunciation improved very quickly, I was prepared for my interviews, and I owe so much to him and his training!
I really found Pronunciation Workshop to be a great investment for myself. I gained so much more than I spent. I believe foreigners should start to work with your course right after arriving to USA before they learn the wrong methods. Thank you.
First Republic Bank is a very satisfied customer of Paul Gruber’s Pronunciation Workshop program. I heartily recommend the Pronunciation Workshop Course for organizations that want quantifiable results. It really made a difference for our employees and while we see a demonstrated improvement in their on-the-job communication skills, I also feel that the program gave them a life skill that they can take with them wherever they go. I manage customer support for business products at the bank, including a call center that handles internal and external calls. Last year we ran many employees through the Pronunciation Workshop program, participants included my group plus employees in our retail customer call center. The results were very positive. For those who used the DVD program, there was a significant improvement in their speech as demonstrated by the before and after scores on standardized testing. In addition, I personally noticed that those employees who went through the program had much more confidence when speaking. Paul Gruber put all the employees at ease about participating in the program. He was very encouraging and made everyone feel good about themselves and their progress. As it turned out, employees started looking forward to their sessions with Paul because they felt so comfortable with him. We have a number of staff who are not native English speakers. Very few if any had ever been exposed to a speech program or speech therapy before. The DVD program gives specific instructions on how to pronounce common sounds in America English correctly, and many of our staff found this aid very helpful. It was a pleasure working with Paul Gruber on tailoring the program to our staff. He was very accommodating and willing to customize the program to meet our needs.
I am an Accent Trainer in India and have trained 22,000 agents. After taking this program, I wish there was a way to go back and start all over again. This is by far, the MOST EFFECTIVE English Pronunciation program I have ever seen.
For now over 9 years, Teleperformance, one of the world’s largest customer service organizations and Pronunciation Workshop have enjoyed a solid and long standing relationship. Paul Gruber has created so much more than just a regular Voice and Accent training tool. PW has been close to my heart personally, and it is a privilege to share our Success Stories! In conducting global business, miscommunication is one of the major reasons for customer dissatisfaction worldwide. Pronunciation Workshop’s powerful training has been able to eliminate this problem for us. On behalf of myself, Teleperformance and its employees we thank you for creating such a revolutionary training program!
When speaking to my customers, I am no longer nervous and am fully confident to interact with clarity. Pronunciation Workshop has really helped me in neutralizing my accent. Yippee!
I was surprised that such a small investment could make such a difference in my life… and more than I realized. The best way I know how is through pronunciation training with Paul Gruber… he did it for me and he will do it for you!!! I ask you, do people have to ask you things like pardon; say that again, sorry and so on when you speak English as a foreign language? You are annoying the person you talk to and you look like you are not educated while you might have a PhD! Well that was me. So I say, why not polish your English. The Pronunciation Workshop video training dramatically improved my pronunciation but Paul’s live training is what polished off the small imperfections in my English and what kept me coming back for more. When I speak with my new and improved English skills, it’s like I am taking Paul as a companion whenever I have to make a presentation or have a conversation! Give this a try, you will be amazed!
I recommend this course to all my friends. And every time I do, I feel good because I know how precious this recommendation is and how powerful it will be for that person. Paul virtually opened my eyes (and mouth and ears) on many basic elements of English speech that I didn’t know about and didn’t understand before. I’ve always been annoyed by the accent in my speech. At last I devoted some time to researching the best solution. I found, that there was only one that was of high quality and that’s Paul Gruber and his Pronunciation Workshop. I bought the DVD course which is excellent. And also I was very pleased by the opportunity to take online private lessons with Paul Gruber himself. He teaches in such an energetic and effective manner that I look forward to and enjoy these lessons very much! This training is extremely useful to me, especially in my work and I received the fast results I was looking for. A great course!!!
Your course has not only changed the way I speak English, but it has also changed my living style. I am grateful to God too, that I have come across your program on the Internet just in time. I will definitely tell my Human Resource Department about your course, and I highly recommend it to all people in India who have not studied in an English School due to lack of finances or opportunities. If you would like, please feel free to publish my quote and true experience, so that millions of students in India and sub-continent will want to take advantage of your life changing course as well. I will be very happy if my comments help the Pronunciation Workshop Course flourish and reach every corner of the world and to those who are equally passionate to speak like an American. I use to be an underdog during my school days. Now, all those brilliant students are jealous of my progress with my English accent and my related successes. That is why I am telling you how much your course means to me and what a life changing experience it has been. Also, please mention Naihati, India (which is a small town in the state of West Bengal) as my location in my comments because that will make Indian students understand that your course is reaching every corner of India and suitable not only for metro city people but also for everybody who has an interest and passion to improve their English. I have no doubt that whoever will take this course will surely get affected by your enthusiasm too! Thanks!
As I work very closely with NASA and the Pentagon, my company recommended that I take accent training from Pronunciation Workshop. What a fantastic and rewarding experience! After working with the video course and face-to-face training sessions through Skype, I have the confidence to hold meetings and make my presentations in regard to our high technical materials. Thank you Paul for giving me the self-assurance I needed to speak English clearly and be easily understood.
I am now earning 3 to 4 times more than what I was paid from my first employer! I could not have been able to do this without your training course. We migrated to the U.S., the country of great opportunities. (We are from India). We enjoyed everything except conversation with native speaking people because they couldn’t understand me! I was so disappointed and depressed. I couldn’t find a good job with my heavy accent! My wife wanted to help me so she searched through the Internet and found this program. My wife is a nurse educator and an RN and now she is going for her PhD in Nursing at KU Med Kansas. We both took this great video training program. It also helped my wife teach students with her better accent. I listened and practiced with the videos every day. My goal was to get a better job. As I improved, I got two job offers within 2 months! One was in insurance and the other was with a Toyota dealership! I selected the job at the dealership as a Sales Consultant. Now I am selling 15 to 25 cars every month (sometimes 4 to 5 cars in a day!). A lot of my friends ask me about my job. "Joji, how can we get a job like you?" I tell my friends about your program and now they have already bought the course from you. I am still trying to improve my accent even more, so that I can achieve more goals. We are so happy with our jobs and we can now buy whatever we want all because we have proper communication! You are going to get another order from our family friends. They are Nuns from India working in our church. They want to speak good English too! We wish much success to you, Mr. Paul Gruber and your team.
After personally taking Paul’s training course, I chose his program to be used throughout my Call Center Academy in El Salvador. This is ABSOLUTELY, the finest course I have ever taken! The Pronunciation Workshop Course is the Best of the Best! It gave me immediate results, and today I speak English perfectly! I recommend this program to anyone interested in having great pronunciation. You’ll be thrilled you did!
Before I began the Pronunciation Workshop Course, I did not think that it would be possible to speak English with little or even without an accent. (I have tried many programs in the past without much success). Through the video course lessons and my personal sessions, I have been able to correct the way that I have been speaking English for the past many years. I highly recommend this workshop without reservation.
