Rebecca can quickly pinpoint areas of your speech that give you an accent and focus on eliminating or reducing them over the course of 10 weeks. You begin to notice real changes towards the end of the course and can learn to self-correct your speech. Highly recommend.

Rebecca is a very professional woman that has developed the perfect technique to help people like me, foreigners that are determined to improve our English skills here in the United States or any where in the world, After attending her classes my confidence is back, now nobody can make me feel uncomfortable anymore.Thank you so much Rebecca you are awesome 🙂
Rebecca’s systematic approach to accent reduction was instrumental in improving my English pronunciation. Her process relies on an initial rigorous analysis to identify one’s shortcomings and customize the remedial one on one sessions.Rebecca turned routine exercises into interesting challenges making it a lot easier for me to follow the discipline necessary to success.
I have worked with a number of accent trainers, and Rebecca is very unusual in providing a detailed breakdown of what needs to be fixed in writing right after the first session, setting detailed goals, and following a clear lesson plan with measurable results. After 10 sessions with Rebecca I noticed that I no longer need to repeat myself when talking to someone in person, and almost never when talking on the phone.Throughout the lessons Rebecca has been unfailingly professional and open to my specific needs and requirements.
I’ve greatly benefitted from Rebecca’s coaching, so much so that I feel like a totally new and confident person. As an Indian English speaker, I have a fairly good English but to excel in business I had to ensure I was speaking the American English, hitting the right syllables and pronouncing the words correctly. I enrolled with Rebecca for internet based coaching classes to speak American English. This is one of the best investments I’ve ever made, I got so much more than just learning English. She helped me with keep the right posture, breathing techniques, intonation. I began to see clear and positive changes to my personality, in way I could project my voice with adequate volume, be more confident about the pronunciation. My family and my friends were greatly pleased with my clarity in speech. Rebeccais a keen observer, she notices the smallest of nuances and guides you to work on it. She, gives you some great exercises that help in speech improvement, and also manage stress. Now, I’m convinced she’s put the best coaching package out there, a combination of English, Posture, Stress Management and Positive thinking that so effortlessly make you a great speaker and build a great network of friends and business to succeed in our personal and business life. Whenever I have a speaking event or important business meeting, I’ll be reaching out to Rebecca for preparation and success. Thanks Rebecca !
I have been taking English accent reduction lessons from Ms. Rebecca Linquist for some time. She is very effective. She know how to teach. She has never been wrong about any pronunciation of any words.From some one who had a heavy accent Ms. Linquist has turned me into one who can use Dragon Dictation with a 99 % accuracy. Whatever she charges you, it is a steal!
I have been attending Rebecca’s American accent training for almost 6 years now. She is one of the best English teacher I have met so far. Through the training, I can now speak in public with a greater confidence. This is very important in my career transition. Recently I have made a career switch from engineering field to a product management job. The communication training really helped me going through a lot of tough interviews and finally landed me a dream job that I had been pursing after getting a MBA degree. I personally believe that good communication is very important in advancing my career as it is the first impression how people perceive you. Right now, I could give any presentation with greater ease and being understood more easily. I highly recommend this accent training to any professionals who would like to get help advance their career and speak English like a native speaker.
I work as a vocal coach and an Office Manager in Menlo Park. CA. Rebecca’s program has not only helped me a great deal in accent reduction but executive presence too. She has some tremendous techniques to correct posture and develop an influential personality. After a couple of sessions, I started feeling the difference. I also liked her communicative competence program, which one of its kind.
Thanks to working with Rebecca Linquist over the last 10 years with everything from business strategies to speech, I have gained the skills and confidence to grow my business. As a Korean-American, it was sometimes challenging to speak clearly and be understood right away. There were many times when I just wasn’t sure I was saying things correctly. Her systematic program makes it easier for me to focus in on what I need to do to create change. I’m much more aware of how to deliver a professional presentation and connect my messaging with my clients.Recently, I have been working on Executive Presence with Rebecca and Bud, and I am grateful by how much valuable feedback and insight they have given me. I’m able to speak and move more professionally. This coaching is literally transforming me into the communicator I have always wanted to be, and I’m much more convincing and confident that my message will connect with others.As a result, I have grown my clientele significantly and developed the ability to communicate with anyone in every situation without feeling nervous or unsure. I highly recommend “English by the Hour” if you want to improve your Executive Presence and ability to influence others.
