Global Pittsburgh and Carnegie Speech Sign Agreement to Market Language Learning Technology to Education Resources Locally and Worldwide

GlobalPittsburgh has signed an agreement with Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Speech to promote and market Carnegie Speech’s proprietary language-learning and accent modification programs to education-related institutions and corporate entities in the Pittsburgh region and around the world.

Under the agreement, GlobalPittsburgh will act as a sales representative for Carnegie Speech online applications among universities and international organizations with which it works through relationships with the U.S. government agencies and organizations.

“GlobalPittsburgh’s long history of promoting Pittsburgh to the world is what attracted us to partner with them,” said Paul Musselman, CEO of Carnegie Speech.  “GlobalPittsburgh’s many programs bring together residents and visitors to learn about each other’s communities and aspirations. Our software can accelerate communication and promote friendship, speed learning and improve commerce between Southwestern Pennsylvania and the world.”

“This is an excellent opportunity for GlobalPittsburgh to continue expanding our role as an international connector in the Pittsburgh region,” said Michael Malloy, Chair of the GlobalPittsburgh board of directors. “By partnering with a local company and engaging them with our global network, we are able to provide tangible economic and educational benefits to our member organizations and to the community as a whole. That is the role we want to play in the Pittsburgh region.”

Carnegie Speech’s NativeAccent® is the world’s only patented and award-winning Software as a Solution (SaaS) that assesses an individual’s spoken English grammar, fluency, word stress and pronunciation, and then delivers a personalized lesson plan that matches your precise learning needs. Carnegie Speech has over 150 education, enterprise and government customers around the world whose users see up to 100 percent improvement in their spoken English grammar, fluency, word stress and pronunciation in as little as 10 hours of use.

GlobalPittsburgh, formerly the Pittsburgh Council for International Visitors, engages international delegations, groups and individuals by creating itineraries and facilitating introductions through the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) and other international programming agencies in many fields, including energy and environment, life sciences and medicine, education, business and technology, clean/green design, advanced manufacturing, arts and culture, government and finance, social services and law, and other areas.

GlobalPittsburgh also helps recruit international students to the region through its Study Pittsburgh initiative, and connects international students and professionals with globally minded people in the region through member activities and events.
