If you have:

  • limited (or never had) any accent professional education
  • taken less than 5 clients through a complete accent training program
  • been to other training programs for accent but do NOT have any formalized knowledge base for testing or teaching vowel issues or intonational strategies
  • taken an LDS onsite program or our online Level 1 program but have done nothing in the field for 2+ years!

Try our Level 1

 If you have:

  • taken an LDS onsite program or our online Level 1 web training
  • conducted a complete training for 5+ individual accent clients
  • seen numerous clients, but typically stay with only one instructional format
  • reaped limited success with your marketing endeavors for accent
  • found limited success getting reorder business from completed accent programs – even when you think it went well!
  • not seen your client base expand

Try our Level 2

If you:

  • completed Level 1 & 2 coursework for accent
  • routinely complete 6+ accent training programs annually
  • utilize 2 or more training formats (i.e., individual, small group, mid-size groups, etc.)
  • have no particular problems, but you'd just like to look at training from a more advanced perspective

Try our Level 3

If you:

  • have completed Level 3 of the LDS training and would like to be part of our online and/or onsite Testing Network, please contact us.

 

If you:

  • want a online course that has neither prerequisites nor is tied to a particular level
  • haven’t updated your knowledge base for advanced ESL issues this year
  • are looking for interesting applications to explore
  • are, frankly, bored with your current program efforts!
