Sound Production

English contains 19 vowel sounds and 26 consonant sounds. The key is firstly to know how to produce every sound using the articulators (lips, tongue, mouth) and voice. Secondly to know how to select every sound, as English spelling is not always kind to us.

Connected Speech

To speak really confidently you need to join sounds smoothly. This involves learning which sounds are weak, which sounds disappear and which sounds change together. Speaking more slowly is one solution, but to speak with true fluency, joining must be mastered.

Intonation

English has three intonation patterns; falling, rising and fall-rising which are used with stress patterns to give emotion and meaning to speech. A few simple techniques can totally change the way your English sounds and the way you understand native speakers.

What are the benefits?


Studying pronunciation offers more than simply being able to make sounds correctly. In fact, the first improvement students of English pronunciation notice is improved listening skills –  you can spot details you’d never noticed and then your own mistakes.

With practice comes more control and accuracy in sound production and the resultant boost in confidence. Joining sounds is a big area in spoken English, but now you know the rules – when and when not to use an /r/, what happens to /t/, which sounds can disappear – it’s no longer confusing, actually it’s developing your fluency.

When you start to master intonation – an English pitch, rhythm and stress, you know you can command the language. The best part is the constant improvement now you know the rules, sounds and structures, you can also distinguish English accents and even modify your own – if that’s what you aim to do. 


 

Learning doesn’t begin or end with a course – we release new articles with audio every month.
