Everybody Knows that English is a difficult language to speak accurately. It uses a wide range of sounds, joining rules and a distinctive intonation.

The way it’s spelt doesn’t help the learner – silent letters, double vowels, weak forms are all seemingly there to confuse.With Pronunciation Studio’s courses and materials, you can join thousands of learners worldwide who have overcome these aspects of English to make their speech clear, confidentengaging.

The three key skills:

Sound Production

English contains 19 vowel sounds and 26 consonant sounds. The key is firstly to know how to produce every sound using the articulators (lips, tongue, mouth) and voice. Secondly to know how to select every sound, as English spelling is not always kind to us.

Connected Speech

To speak really confidently you need to join sounds smoothly. This involves learning which sounds are weak, which sounds disappear and which sounds change together. Speaking more slowly is one solution, but to speak with true fluency, joining must be mastered.


English has three intonation patterns; falling, rising and fall-rising which are used with stress patterns to give emotion and meaning to speech. A few simple techniques can totally change the way your English sounds and the way you understand native speakers.

Thousands of learners from all over the world have learnt these skills and taken their English to its potential at Pronunciation Studio since 2008. We work in Central London and online via Skype

“I achieved what I wanted. I have no more patients asking ‘Can you say that again?’ or ‘What did you say?’ I think I have a very good communication with the patients which was one of my main things. So that’s improved. My confidence has improved massively. It’s really good fun, lots of fun. I loved it.”
