Chapter 1 (Sample)

Why study pronunciation?

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: you hear things you had never noticed before.

Constant Progress

Now the sounds and rules are learnt, improvement is constant, you can spot when it sounds right (and when it doesn’t).

Most learners begin with an individual assessment class – available Monday to Friday from 08:00-21:00 and Saturdays 10:00-17:00. It’s the best place to start learning at Pronunciation Studio
