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.
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:
Using the full range of sounds means words are pronounced clearly, fewer mistakes and less need to repeat.
Usually the first sign of improvement is faster, more detailed listening skills: learners hear things they’d never noticed before.
Now the sounds and rules are learnt, students normally continue to improve because they can recognise their mistakes.
Since Pronunciation Studio began in 2008 thousands of learners have improved their pronunciation skills with us from over a hundred countries:

IPA Sound Chart
The way a word is spelt isn’t always a clear indication of the way it is pronounced in English. This is owing to English using a Roman alphabet of 26 letters, with a Germanic sound system of roughly 44 sounds; it simply isn’t possible to assign one letter to one sound.
English vowels are particularly tricky with 5 letters (a,e,i,o,u) producing about 19 vowel sounds. IPA shows the sound to produce and where to place stress in longer words. You can download the Pronunciation Studio IPA chart here, and learn how to pronounce each sound in the ebook with audio here.
