Kaplan International Centers to Introduce Carnegie Speech Company, Inc.'s NativeAccent(R) in 23 English Schools in North America

Kaplan International Centers announced a partnership with Carnegie Speech Company, Inc. to launch its online NativeAccent(R) program in 23 of Kaplan's English-language schools in North America. NativeAccent(R) is Carnegie Speech's online adaptive-learning program, which helps students improve their speaking and listening skills. Using advanced speech recognition and intelligent tutoring technologies that originated at Carnegie Mellon University, NativeAccent(R) listens to a student's spoken English and diagnoses very specifically their individual strengths and weaknesses. It then creates a customized learning plan for each student which maximizes student learning gains and minimizes required study time. Kaplan performed extensive trials of NativeAccent(R) in controlled studies at its North American English schools and found that its students' pronunciation improved significantly when adding NativeAccent(R) to existing classroom-based instruction.
