We teach 2nd language speakers of English to use the full range of British English sounds and intonation in their speech.
How to use the tongue, lips, jaw and voice to produce the 45 sounds of English.
Spelling to Sound
Predicting the correct sound based on its spelling and the IPA (phonetic) symbol for every sound.
Joining sounds and words together smoothly in connected speech.
Pronunciation and intonation are often totally ignored on English courses, meaning that 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 the following benefits:
Using the full range of sounds means that all the words are pronounced clearly, fewer mistakes and less need to repeat.
Usually the first sign of improvement is faster and more detailed listening skills, learners hear things they’d never noticed before.
Once the sounds and rules are learnt, students normally continue to improve because they can recognise their mistakes.
Since 2007 over 50,000 learners from 100+ countries have improved their pronunciation with our courses and materials.
