- Billy, Hong Kong

"I liked the 5 step method. It's easy and useful. Andy is patient and keep to help the student with his method. He is one of the best teacher I've ever seen."
- Simon, Guangzhou

" I am deeply impressed by your patience, enthusiasm and mostly, your beautiful American accent. I appreciated it a lot you've taught me such a great lesson. And I have learned one thing from you that while speaking, one should speak as slowly as he or she can which can give him or her enough time to think and to put his or her tongue in the right position in order to pronounce right and besides, one should say 2 to 3 words at a time with the help of one hand, thus he or she could get a proper rhythm."
- Neo, Beijing

Hello Andy,

I had such a great day today because I finally understood how to get rid of my accent. Lucky native English speakers just do not realise how it can bother when you cannot speak clearly.

After two and a half years of living in Canada I realized that although I dramatically improved my writing skills and extended my vocabulary, I still have this terribly strong Russian accent. It bothers me a lot because, first of all, I want to continue my career as a medical doctor in Canada, and second, I just want to speak English clearly and correctly. That is why I did my own Internet research about the possible ways to leave my accent in the past and came to the conclusion that I need to contact Andy Krieger because the information (about him and his unique K-method) I found impressed me very much. And I did it!

I do not know how, but Andy's method works perfectly! I found that steps and techniques Andy taught are very easy to memorize and reproduce but so effective! I understand that it is just the beginning, and I have to practice a lot if I want to achieve my goal: to get rid of my accent. However, the first very important step has been made, and I doubt that it could be possible without Andy's help.

Thank you very much, Andy. You are the best!
Irina

Andy is excellent in teaching specially in accent reduction in English. I have been enormously benefited from him. He can help in detecting wrongs and mistakes which we the sub-continental people generally make in pronouncing English words. He shows the exact manner pronounce a particular word by placing the tongue at exact place in the mouth and allowing a pause to make it understandable to others with a gentle and rhythmic hand movement. I have termed the technique as a "Charismatic Method" of accent reduction.

So, my opinion is that you may go to him. He is a sincere and hardworking man. I believe he will help you in all respects in reducing your strong accent into a normal one. You will, of course, be benefited to a large extent. Wish you good luck.

Yours truly,
Dr. Jahangir

Hi Andy,

Thank you for your course that is unique, informative and very helpful in accent reduction. I am very impressed about the amount of work you put in and the numbers of students/celebrities you have taught.

I have noticed that when I speak English, I couldn't help opening my month to get into the position, pronouncing the vowel longer and launder, and rolling my tongue back for L and R and so on. Having learned English many years, I learned, first time, from you, how American English is spoken and how it should be sound in an organized manner.

The course materials are icing on cake that illustrate some difficult concept in a easy-to-understand gestures, photos or stories. I learned that gestures can guide me to emphasize the word, pop the word up alike a bullet, and elongate the sound like a baseball. There illustrations in your materials are generous! I realized that speaking American English is a state of art, just like sing a song or a playing piano, in which each note has its designated position. Before the class, my goal was to be understood, but now I want my audience enjoy listing to me. It will take time but I will try my best by following your steps and practicing daily.

Hello Andy,

For many years I have been looking for professional help with pronunciation of English sounds, words, intonations and so on since I could not figure out on my own how to speak English correctly and with no accent.

I know how to position my lips and tongue correctly to sound right, and how to put correct intonations and project my voice. The disk is extremely helpful for refreshing my memory and knowledge. I will be practicing what you taught me on, and I hope I will improve. At least, I will do my best for it.

I have recommended you to my friends today, and they are as well very excited about your course. Thank you again for showing me the way to improve my speaking!

Yours sincerely,
Oleg

Hello,

I guess the fact that you made it seem so simple to speak English with no accent and yet how powerful it is. I have put some time every day practicing and today I could hear myself talking with more confident and less accent with the techinques. I also noticed that I have been using the techniques when speaking my native language and tried to put them into use when speaking English which made it sound very powerful and almost like native speakers. Thank you again. I am looking forward to taking your next course.

Thanks again,
Maryam

Hello Andy,

Today, I had a great time grasping all the information and learning so much from you. Truly,you are very professional and a sheer genius at your work. I honestly,could not believe I would leave the class with absolutely no accent and who could be a better judge than my own children. To their sheer delight, mom sounded 'just like them'!

I love your style of teaching and the 'K' method. It brought about a confidence in me and I know for sure that I will get the job of my dreams when I walk into a room full of professionals as I conduct myself in front of them.

Initially, I thought there was no way in the world that I was going to get rid of my accent, but slowly as the class progressed and with your encouragement of course, I felt I was getting there.Half-way through the class,I felt better about the way I spoke and by the end of the class, I felt as though I had finally achieved what I was missing all these years.

I know I need to practice everyday,but practice makes one perfect. Today, I feel like a true Canadian! Thank you Andy.

Best regards,
-Nixie

I just want to let you know how thankful I am for the wonderful class you provided for me. Also I want to thank you and appreciate the hard work you did for me. Actually, I was doubt about K method at the beginning because I could not believe that I could reduce my accent!

However, amazingly, it did happen! I can speak English more clearly and I have more confidence when I speak in English! Your unique K method is really awesome and effective for me.
 
Thank you Andy for everything! I would like to tell you that I am very impressed and pleased with the accent reduction class with you. It is with great confidence that I recommend K method class to anyone who is interested in reducing their own accent.

Thank you very much for all your help and support!

It is the first time when I have taken a pronunciation course. Even thought I don't have another precedent to compare, I found the course very interesting and useful. You said things which I haven't thought about before. It is true, talking rarely and following your rules about how it should be the mouth and tongue at the beginning of the words helps for accent reduction.

The teaching method is great.Using a camera, it is easy to see, understand and control the way the words should be said. Also, having few people, you could pay attention and make everyone to understand what it is wrong and how it can be changed.
 
Maintain this kind of speaking away from class is not really difficult.In my case, when I start talking  and I see that the person who I talk with doesn't understand me, I remember about "the hand rhythm".

Achieving accent reduction is not very easy, but keeping the essential rules in mind and practicing, at one moment, the words will just come correctly with not thinking any more about them.

In my opinion, the course was worth the money. I learned something else new about English which will help me to integrate more easier in the Canadian society.
 
I definitely recommend the class to others.It is a easy, interesting and entertaining way to understand and learn a correct  pronunciation of words;it is very important to be understood by people that I talk with.

These are my thoughts about the course in few words. Thank you for very much for your effort and for the CD.

Thanks for giving us such a wonderful course.

I would say this is the missing puzzle which I am looking for and complements very well with other traditional oral English/pronunciation trainings. The class is intensive but effective. I have never seen people so focused in class ever yet in such an cozy atmosphere to learn effectively. This have to be the results of many years of distillation and experiment and what we are having are the very essence of the method.

I'm sure everyone learning English as a second language would benefit very much from attending this one-day course and keep practising using Andy's approach.

peter wingfieldDear Andy

I wanted to say a big thank you to you for your help and support as I worked on my American accent this year, going from my native British. Your classes were of tremendous value to me, not just by giving me practical skills to approach an American text, but also by giving me the confidence to got out there and try it in the field.

As a testament to your teaching skills let me tell you that I recently got my first job in an American accent on the film X-Men 2.I have a dozen scenes and will be working with nearly all of the main stars, including Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, and Ian McKellen I have had quite a few auditions for American roles and I have just finished filming my first leading role, playing a San Francisco cop on the show Just Cause.: That was really a great thrill for me as it was a lot of dialogue and I was delighted to find that I felt free to be creative even in this strange, alien tongue.

This has been a tough year for most people in the industry. Without the ability to work in the American accent, there would have been no work for me whatsoever.

I am greatly indebted to you for your encouragement and confidence building, Andy.

Many thanks.

Dear Mr. Andy Krieger,

I really enjoy your DVD! I am trying to watch and imitate your way of speaking every day, even for 15 minutes. I hope my English will improve more and more!
Thank you very much for the accent reduction class last Saturday. It was very helpful for me and good surprise that it is simple ways to reduce my accent.

Since then, I have tried to talk slowly and clearly. Then I notice not only that people understand what I am saying, also that I can maintain peaceful my state of mind. Before, I was trying to speak fast to catch up with the speed of talk of my relatives and I often got upset because I could not make myself understood and also I was not be able to understand what people are talking about. Then I blamed myself for that.

After the class, I gained confidence to speak up and have potential to speak English without accent. Your way of talking and teaching impressed me so much and help learn effectively. My goal is to become an interpreter; I have not decided whether its medical or legal. Accent reduction is very important for me to achieve my goal.

Again, thank you very much for your wonderful class!

Hi Andy,

The only word, plain and simple but from the core of my heart, that I can think of to describe the coaching I am receiving from you is AWESOME.

I have been a student for 27 years out of the total 35 years of my earthly abode but I haven't experienced a teaching style as unique and innovative as yours. It pin-points the problem that I, as a student, have and I am confident that it will help me to resolve it over time and with practice. I have no problem in reading, writing or understanding english. This all could have gone futile if I, while speaking, would not have been able to put my point of view across but now after attending your class, I am sure that I will be able to overcome this barrier too.

I wish that this session would have been of at least 3 classes but experience tells me that all good things come to an end fast.

Andy, I thank you for teaching us in this unique pragmatic style.

Yours Sincerely,
Harvinder Tinna

Andy,

Thank you very much for your e-mail. I am getting on well with your method of accent reduction. It is giving me positive result. I don't know how many methods there are in reducing strong accent into a normal one. But yours is a unique, excellent and pragmatic one.

You have developed a very good technique of accent reduction. Only in three hours time you are giving a complete package of accent reduction.It teaches how and where to place lips and tongue,how to take breath after making a pause and when to release it in pronouncing a word with the help of hand movement then indicating five stages of accent, nine groups of words and some other related things. All together it seems to me as amazing. Really, it is a Charismatic Method of Accent Reduction.

My medium of instruction was English. All through I had studied in English. But in many occasions I had observed that I was not understood by others because of my strong accent. It is You and only You who have helped me in reducing my strong accent by your Charismatic Method of Accent Reduction and enabled me now to be understood by others.

Thank you very much for your technique and endeavors you have made for me.

Sincerely yours

Good Day Andy,

Thank you very much for sending me out the video. In regards to feedback, it is positive, if you follow the rules and try to memorize the sounds and speak slowly, you can notice the difference right away. Right now, I am working on the memorization of sounds and I am sure that in the long run I will be considered the DVD and off course your technique as the best investment ever.

Once I have watched all the DVD, I will contact you so that you can provide me with feedback as well.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Andy

My name is Miguel, I'm originally from Cuba and have been living in Toronto for the last fourteen years, I would like to thank you for the DVD, I think it's magnificent, you must be a genius. When I first came to Canada, I wanted to learn English , I would say that I reached that goal some time ago, but there always was a nagging aspect, how to speak more clearly? how to make myself better understood? specially when I was talking on the phone. I tried different methods including the one where a piece of wine bottle cork is used, I don't know if you ever heard of that one, with the only result of a sore jaw.

At some point I gave up, I said to myself, what bother I have a heavy accent so what, I can get by, which is true, and then one day I learned about the Krieger method, so I did try it, what a difference it made. I had only watched twice and already the progress is amazing, people at work made some comments, finally I can say beach instead of bitch, just imagine how much trouble I wont be getting into. During the Superbowl I order a pizza and for the first time nobody asked me to repeat, that's wonderful.

Andy I know that there is a long way to go, like you said you have to learn to crawl before you learn to walk but I'm very excited, your method showed results hence gave me the confidence that this time around I would fulfil my dream of speaking English without a foreign accent.

Thanks again. And all the best

Hey Andy,

Your teaching was absolutely awesome!! It was just last night at my birthday party, I read my friends' wish cards out loud in front of everybody (about 20 people) fluently with no accent and with nice pauses, nice and slow. Me, myself, has already noticed a big difference, and I bielieve my friends noticed that too. The whole night I was speaking english more slowly and making each word clear to be heard. And I was even more happy because of your teaching of the proper positions of lips and tougne, I can sing english songs better now. The words that came out of my mouth sound so beautiful!

Thank you Andy! Because of you, my confidence of english speaking changed just in a few hours. And I will keep practicing untill I can speak easily without paying attention to what's going on with my tounge and lips.

Best Regards!

Dear Andy:

I am writing you to express my gratitude for the time and effort you have given to reduce my accent and improve my speaking style.

I took your one day work shop in April and took you up on your offer of a follow up telephone consultation. The initial course gave me the motivation to improve on my speaking sills and to work on the English sounds that do not come natural to me. Only through practicing and positive re-enforcement I will be able to attain my goal of speaking English clearly. The follow up telephone consultations with you gave me a further opportunity for feedback and direction. You have been able to focus me on the words, sounds and phases that I most struggle with and your patient re-enforcement has allowed me to hear my own effective
results.

Thank you for your time on our telephone calls.

Grateful student,

Hey Andy,

I had an awesome time sitting there and repeating words and phrases back to you, especially with you correcting me all the time! I just love American English and didn’t have the slightest idea that you were from California, until you mentioned it in the class, so everything worked perfectly well for me… and yeah for a 2.5  hour class what I got was great. I think what you thought me is a solid foundation upon which I can build up. I will practice and am sure will be able to enhance my accent over time, practice makes perfect after all.

But let me tell all those who are seeking to improve their accents and are probably reading my email that  you got the right person. Andy is a lovely and great instructor who will teach you passionately and  you will be out of doors amazed by what he can do…

Have a lovely rest of the day,

Dear Andy,

Thank you so much for your wonderful lesson.  Your unique K method of accent reduction is very effective.  We're so glad that we have found you.

We were in doubt that we could lose our 15 years of Chinese accent in 4 hours.  But it did happened and thanks to you.  Both of us are now speaking English more clearly and we are more comfortable speaking English now.

The content of your lesson is better than what we expected.  It was easy to understand and to remember.  What we get out of the lesson is priceless.
 
I have no hesitation to recommend you to other people who want to speak English properly.  Alfred and I are looking forward to talk to you soon and you're be impressed on how we speak now.  

Best regards,

I think my (Phillipino) accent is not bad and the words I speak is understandable.  Not until I attended the course of Accent Reduction, that day I learn the proper way of speaking the English language.  The simple steps in the course really made the difference and how Andy, with patience and enthusiasm, taught us the proper positioning of the tongue and lips before a word comes out from the mouth.   From that unique instruction, the K Method, and with daily practice and implementation, I could reduce my accent and eventually talk like other english speaking individuals.  My self-confidence in expressing myself has improve a lot especially here in the office.
 
I thank you so much for your time and effort, Andy.  You did a good job in teaching us. I highly recommend you to other immigrants like me.
