About Bigler ESL


All Japanese adults have studied English, but communicating in English is a different story. Bigler ESL specializes in helping Japanese speakers of English put together what they’ve learned and add to it, accelerating the process of communicating effectively and confidently in English.

Liz Bigler is an English Language coach, specializing in helping executives be understood the first time. Liz customizes learning plans according to the needs of each client, through private consultations (online or in-person). Sessions combine working with pronunciation and the rhythm and flow of English, as well as tweaking phrases and grammar as needed, in order to maximize effectiveness as a communicator. This specialized coaching helps clients minimize the frustration of misunderstanding and being misunderstood in English.

Bigler ESL also offers Intensive Accent Reduction Courses, which uncover the secrets of spoken English for Japanese speakers who are tired of having to repeat themselves for coworkers and other Americans. These courses are customized specifically for the problems that Japanese speakers of English typically have, including incorrect stress placement as well as incorrect production of individual sounds (R vs. L, work vs. walk, bag vs. bug, etc.)

Liz also gives presentations and training for corporate events, with a variety of topics related to English language learning and life in the US.

Bigler ESL’s highly trained and experienced staff also offers weekly customized language lessons for children, spouses, and business professionals of all levels at offices in Peachtree Corners.

Liz Bigler has been helping Japanese speakers of English for over 25 years, holds a master’s degree in applied linguistics from Georgia State University, and has studied accent reduction extensively. Using a combination of methods and resources, including the revolutionary new “Color Vowel Chart” technique, Liz and her staff help Japanese speakers become more easily understood and use the English that they already know more effectively.
