Pleasanton, Ca. - AmEnglish.com® announces the availability of a new training program - Live Online Executive English Training delivered over the Internet through a virtual classroom. Based on the award winning Pronunciation in American English CD-ROM self-study tool, this training series will be led by the author, Kathy L. Hans. The Pronunciation CD-ROM is the only pronunciation program in the world co-branded by ETS® (Educational Testing Service®, makers of TOEFL®, TOEIC®, TSE® and TAST) and will be an essential instructional tool for executives and professional workers who need to quickly improve their pronunciation skills in English to meet the demands of global business relationships delivered through teleconferences and videoconferences.
