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.
“It has been just amazing how in a few weeks I could sound with more clarity and finesse. Highly recommended to all of those who want to get their command of the English language to another dimension.”
Javier Fernandez-Pena (Spanish Buzz in Toy Story 3).
“I cannot put it down into words how significantly my accent has improved. I can now conduct meetings over the phone without having to be interrupted with ‘pardon’.”
