American English is a skills and development training center located within the Makati Central Business District. For over 7 years, we’ve equipped Filipinos with the communication skills necessary to get ahead in the corporate world . We understand that English is the “global language”, therefore you need to invest in yourself to succeed by improving your level of communication.
We offer a full range of courses dealing with Conversational English, Business English Writing, Business Communication, Accent Neutralization and Public Speaking…just to name a few. However, our variety of courses is not what sets us apart from our competitors; it is our uniqueness in the quality and style of method that we employ. One of our major breakthroughs to date is the e-Learning program for our speaking and writing courses, purposely created for the convenience of students who are not able to physically attend classes on a regular basis.
We have a very clear goal: to impart practical knowledge and a pragmatic skill set to our clients, keeping in mind the end result: improving communication. We want to affect the lives of as many Filipinos as possible and one way of doing this is consolidating a large part of our knowledge into a medium accessible to most Filipinos…and this is where our book comes in.
Our book Don’t Speak Good, Speak Well addresses the needs of Filipinos when it comes to communicating in English. It takes a very basic approach towards grammar and pronunciation, because we understand that although most Filipinos can speak English fairly well, there is usually lots of room for improvement
it usually means going back to the basics and addressing those shortcomings from scratch. Having a solid grasp on the basics of English grammar and pronunciation is the foundation by which a strong pinnacle of communication can be built.
Moreover, Don’t Speak Good, Speak Well caters to anyone capable of reading in English, regardless of his or her age. The exercises are both age and gender neutral and the content is beneficial for almost any level of English proficiency.
What makes our book different from all others is its direct “cut to the chase” approach, coupled with real world exercises and examples that are applicable to both students and working professionals. Our book is very comprehensive in the topics it covers and has been balanced in its size to make it extremely portable. Our book need not be read “cover to cover” because each unit is self encapsulated, allowing the reader to navigate to a particular topic without having to do any pre-reading.
