Mouth Movement

How to move the tongue, jaw and lips, and to use the voice to accurately produce the 44 sounds of English.

Spelling to Sound

The relationship between written English and its pronunciation; we learn the rules and the exceptions.

Connected Speech

The way sounds change when they join together to help learners produce and hear fast and accurate speech.

Stress & Intonation

The melodies and stresses of English speech: when to go up, down and how to use pitch range to show emotion.


Pronunciation and intonation are often ignored on English courses; learners achieve a high level in grammar, vocabulary and writing, but do not reach their potential in speaking or listening skills.

Although English does have an unusual relationship between its written and spoken forms, these areas can be learnt like any other, with rules, exceptions, and above all plenty of practice. Most learners report 3 benefits:

Spoken Accuracy

Using the full range of sounds means words are pronounced clearly, fewer mistakes and less need to repeat.

Listening Skills

Usually the first sign of improvement is faster, more detailed listening skills: learners hear things they’d never noticed before.

Constant Progress

Now the sounds and rules are learnt, students normally continue to improve because they can recognise their mistakes.
