ETS® Co-branding for Pronunciation in American English

Educational Testing Service® (ETS®) has co-branded the interactive CD-ROM Pronunciation in American English by Kathy L. Hans. The expanded relationship with ETS® reflects continuing support for this effective training tool (selected as a Tool for TOEIC® since '00). It places a new emphasis on this product going forward for other training applications within the ETS® family of tests and services: Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)®, Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC®), TOEFL® Academic Speaking Test (TAST)® and the Test of Spoken English (TSE®).

The co-branding coincides with upcoming changes in the TOEFL® Test, which will include a speaking component in '05. Students can start adjusting to the new TOEFL® by taking the TAST (available now at ETS®).

"We are very proud to be able to continue our affiliation with ETS®" said Kathy L. Hans, the author of the program, "and we welcome the new and expanded relationship." This product is immediately available from AmEnglish.com®. Please contact sales@amenglish.com for more information.
