Accent Reduction Classes


Advance Your Career. Be Recognized As The Expert You Are.

English pronunciation is hard. It's not the person. It's the language, and it often prevents people from doing their best work. The same letter can be pronounced in several ways and there are many sounds in English that don’t exist in other languages. Accent reduction classes solve these problems.


“This training changed my life because I can now effectively communicate in all spheres of life, in my personal life, in my professional life. I can basically pursue my dreams and ambitions because I’m confident to reach out to people, and I love that.”
Consultant, Menlo Innovations
“I wish I had taken this program years ago.”

“Now people ask me questions after I present. They understand me clearly and want to know more.”
PhD, Mechanical Engineer


Our accent reduction classes do not eliminate accents. They remove communication barriers while maintaining each person’s unique cultural identity.

Everyone deserves to be heard.


“I didn’t know I had a problem… I couldn’t do an R or an L — not at all. Now I can make these sounds every time.”
Microbiologist, Asterand Bioscience
“I’ve taken other accent reduction courses, but they didn’t give me the kind of deep professional training I needed. You guys are the experts.”

Join the thousands of professionals who have experienced America’s leading evidence-based accent reduction training program.

Be empowered by an accent reduction methodology that works every time.

The Ravin Method® is rooted in cognitive linguistics. Clients learn exactly what to do with their teeth, lips, tongue, and jaw to accurately produce the 21 English vowels and 26 consonants, as well as foundational patterns of rhythm, stress, and intonation. Volume and rate of speech are also addressed. People are quickly able to self-correct for long-term acquisition and mastery.

100% of surveyed clients report:

  • Being more effective communicators
  • A surge of confidence
  • Maintaining their cultural identity
  • Fewer requests to repeat themselves
  • Daily use of their new skills
