Company plans to use new name to distinguish itself from competitors and has filed for a trademark to safeguard  appellation

DALLAS, TX (June 2, 2008) –Global English Training today announced it has legally changed its name to G.E.T. English Training. The company has also filed for a trademark to protect the name.

Formed in 2006 by Karen Yates, Global English, now G.E.T. English Training, concentrates on two different types of Accent Reduction programs. The Compton P-ESL method is based on more than 20 years of linguistic research and was designed specifically to aid foreign-born individuals in improving their spoken English. The second technique, Linguistic Mimicry, was created by Mrs. Yates and involves students learning to feel and embody the intonation, rhythm and gestures of the English language by mimicking American speakers.

“Our new name will help differentiate us from our competitors, most of whom specialize in ESL (English as a second language) classes”, explains Yates, President and Owner of G.E.T. English Training. “Our focus is primarily on Accent Reduction and helping our clients to be better understood by their peers and co-workers.”

Global English Training provides both private tutoring and small group classes in Accent Reduction. The company is based in Dallas, Texas, with offices at 14275 Midway Rd, Suite 220, Dallas, TX 75001; Voice 972.741.6024; http://www.getenglishtraining.com.
