If you are an accent trainer, you probably create a lot of your own exercises to supplement the training program you use, but always find there’s more to be done.

With the Rupp Method, you have everything you need at your fingertips for the most comprehensive, in-depth, and efficient training sessions. Our 248-page training book is full of detailed production explanations, expert pronunciation tips, sound spelling patterns, word lists, sentences, and paragraphs; speaking activities are also included for every individual sound section. You’ll find individual vowel and consonant practice sections, sections targeting important sound contrasts, and highly specific word lists focused on specific sound transitions. Our innovative way to teach stress and rhythm allows students to grasp the concepts and apply them. Audio files accompany every practice item in the book. Our materials cover the “biggest” problems all the way down to the “smallest.” We are dedicated to detail.
Using our comprehensive, detailed materials, you will move through content more efficiently, and in fact, will be able to cover more topics during a single session. Students are able to get intensive practice at home, maximizing their practice in between sessions and improving their overall results.

Even though I’ve never had a speech “problem,” I also have felt that I probably had some room for improvement when it came to speaking clearly and confidently. And since my job in media requires quite a bit of public and on-camera speaking, I decided it was time to actually do something about it and take a step towards improving! I’m so happy that I reached out to Jane to help guide me in becoming my best self as a speaker, while maintaining the speech patterns that make me sound like - me! Her warm and confident guidance made me feel totally comfortable, and I always left our sessions with a smile on my face… and some great new ideas to apply to my communications!
Learning natural wording and how to express my thoughts clearly and efficiently has significantly helped me improve my communication at work as well as in my personal life. I really enjoy learning and working with Jane! She always listens to my learning goals and then provides advice that is tailored to my specific needs.
I needed some help with my website's text and Jane provided excellent feedback on not only the grammar, but changing the content to be more inviting. She was extremely helpful and thorough in this process. I would highly recommend Jane if you need help with editing your writing. She will give you constructive opinions on ways to improve your content and material.
“After the first month people started noticing the improvements in my accent and pronunciation. For me this is the best English class I have ever had and will recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their accent or pronunciation without hesitation.”
“I can tell that my accent has improved because I don’t get asked to repeat what I say, especially on the phone. This experience gave me more confidence at work and socially.”
“She is beyond knowledgeable of her craft and was dedicated to finding and resolving my issues… Thank you so much for everything you have done for me Jane, you changed my life.”
“I have taken ESL classes several times in the past and none of them come close to what this training has done for me on a professional level, but most importantly, on a personal level.”
“The training has not only improved my pronunciation but also allowed me to understand new patterns of American accent. I can surely recommend Jane to anybody.”
“I had searched for all kinds of classes and materials from everywhere possible but nothing satisfied me until I found Jane last year. Thank you so much, Jane. You made my journey to my profession shorter and easier!! You gave me a strong foundation of English not just in pronunciation, but also in general conversation.”
“Several people have noticed a difference in my speech and mentioned it to me, that’s a pretty neat feeling! I would say that my two main observations are that people can finally understand my first name when I introduce myself (which was pretty annoying before taking the class) and that I catch myself mispronouncing words and can correct myself right away.”
“As a result of the accent training classes, I became so much more confident when pronouncing words and sentences. My accent has become more natural in such a short amount of time thanks to Jane.”
“Working with Jane not only helped me improve my English pronunciation, but also my confidence to talk and put myself out there… I am very happy when I think about the journey and the work I put in to get to this moment, and I’m thankful for Jane’s help.”
“My goal was to be understood better overall and in situations like being on the phone when the lines of communications are not always clear. I signed up for Jane’s program and was blown away by her effective teaching method.”
“I’ve improved a lot my American English pronunciation and recommend anyone to take pronunciation classes with Jane. She’s passionate about her work and she conveys such a positive atmosphere to her students that you get quite comfortable in the process of learning.”
“After about 20 sessions I’m now at a point not only to pronounce almost all vowels and consonants correctly, but to be much more of aware of common pitfalls in my speech. Friends and business associates have confirmed the progress.”
“I took 25 hours of training and started noticing the changes immediately. I speak clearly now after completion of my classes…I now communicate better when I speak on the phone and in person.”
“Her program and methodology are very intuitive and her practice materials are extremely helpful.”
“I really liked her book that she wrote and gives to her students free of charge. It is a very-well written book and comes with audio files. Thank you Jane so much for everything!”
