“As a native German starting a career in Washington DC, working with BettyAnn Leeseberg-Lange was a blessing! Competent, resourceful and equipped with an extensive and most impressive linguistic knowledge and teaching experience about speech habits of non–natives, she taught me how to feel the muscle movements of sounds and listen to my own speech patterns and how to change them. Now I take my script and mark it and from time to time take a refresher lesson with her.”
-Karin Rosnizeck

Ms. Leeseberg-Lange was brought in to assist our students of international origin.  She worked with students from Eastern Europe and South America. By working individually with our students we noticed that BettyAnn’s efforts were producing significant results.  If a student is attentive to her instruction and coaching; the results are phenomenal.  I highly recommend her to any who desires to control their foreign accent in order to speak English more clearly and be easily understood.
-Very Rev. Robert J. Hitches, Rector, St. Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Seminary
