The first step to improving your skills at Pronunciation Studio, the 60 minute one to one class covers:
How to move the tongue, lips and jaw for each of the 19 vowel sounds of GB English.
How to block air, place articulators and use voice to produce the 25 consonant sounds.
Where to place stress in words and sentences and how to use pitch to convey meaning.
How to use the IPA (phonetic) chart to improve your accuracy in pronunciation.
In the class your teacher will hear you pronounce every sound in English (19 vowel sounds and 25 consonant sounds – see them here) and show where you can improve.
We listen to your natural conversational speech patterns to hear the way you connect sounds and use intonation in your everyday speech.
During and after the assessment, we complete a feedback booklet showing the sounds and any areas you can work on. Your teacher will give you the full ‘The Sound of English Pronunciation’ course pack and show you how it works.
You receive a £50 course voucher when you take an assessment, this can be used towards any group or individual course at Pronunciation Studio. At the end of the class, your teacher will explain further study options and which would be most suitable for you.
Whether you plan to continue and take a pronunciation course, or to use the feedback and book to improve alone, the assessment includes everything you need to make a start:
