About Us

Compton P-ESL

The P-ESL program begins where conventional English as a Second Language (ESL) courses end. All courses are completely customized to your specific accent “habit” patterns and pronunciation proficiency level. At the end of your course, you can expect at least a 50% reduction of your accent.

This program is administered by a speech-language pathologist who has received special training and is certified by the Institute of Language and Phonology as qualified to teach the Compton P-ESL method. Many employers finance all or part of their employees’ tuition for accent reduction classes. They find that this small investment contributes significantly to the success of their employees and the operation of their company
