What's My Story?
My name is Peggy Kayne and I have been training immigrant professionals to speak clearly since 1990.
I left my secure job at the school board to create a real speaking solution for the immigrants I met who could not get into their professional jobs.
I was inspired to offer pronunciation training when an immigrant employee working at a Mr. Lube shop could not speak in a way I could understand him.
He looked professional and was good at his job, but I had to ask "Pardon me?" "Say that again," "Please repeat that" several times so he could tell me what he needed for my car’s oil change steps.
As I went to pay my bill I thought, "I could really help this man with his pronunciation!"
And many hundreds of clients later, my students are proof that I truly can "Teach immigrants how to talk Canadian English."
How Does It Work?
There are three levels of pronunciation success trainings that will provide you with all the skills you need to speak clearly and understand others – no matter how fast they speak English.
Pre-testing of your recorded speech at the beginning and end of each course will show you how much you have improved.
Daily practice for 20 or more minutes a day will secure your new clear Canadian speech.
