Learn GB Pronunciation in London

5 Day Course – Sounds, Structure, Intonation & Fluency.

In 5 days of practical training with IPA certified pronunciation teachers in Central London, you will walk away knowing how to pronounce the 45 sounds of GB English, joining and intonation. These are the keys to clear, accurate spoken English.

No more confusion about how to make and choose sounds, or where to place stress and intonation. Your pronunciation skills will improve long after the course as your listening, sound articulation and fluency develop. We use a GB (General British) accent model on the course, otherwise known as RP or BBC English.

It’s for advanced learners – no grammar, vocab or other skills, 100% pronunciation, intonation and fluency.

Really enjoyed the course. I became more aware of the mistakes I make and self-correct more often. I am able to distinguish different vowels better. The teacher was really knowledgable and patient.

All of our courses are for advanced learners – people who can speak English to a high level and have no problems understanding a native speaker at normal speed. Our teachers don’t slow down, so it is important that you can follow them. If you are not sure that you have the right level, please contact us before booking to check.
This is possible if you are already comfortable with pronouncing the 45 sounds of English and you know the IPA symbols for them. If not, you must begin at Level 1. Our levels do not relate to level of English, they relate to level of pronunciation knowledge.
