Pronunciation Studio 2018-10-01T20:04:29+00:00

we teach advanced second language learners to use the full range of standard GB English sounds and intonation in their speech. Our IPA certified team work in 3 key areas:

The first step is to learn to produce the 45 sounds of standard (GB) English. It’s all about using the mouth correctly to shape and block air, then selecting the right sound and linking it like a native speaker.

The rules of stress contain the key to clear speech. English may seem random, but it’s actually deceptively simple choosing stresses, then making them using pitch, volume and vowel length.  

Intonation is the melody of speech. Different pitches and tones show your attitude to your words. GB English uses a lot of high falling tones and these can be learnt just like any other area of language. 

Pronunciation Studio courses cover the sounds and intonation of GB English. We teach groups and individuals face to face in our London studios & internationally via Skype.

Start with a one to one class and discover your strengths and weaknesses in sounds and intonation.
