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.

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!

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 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!

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.

Anthony P. Tyrrell, ESL Instructor, Oklahoma City Community College, United States

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.

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.

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.
