Proven Results

Over 15,000 learners from over 85 countries have improved their pronunciation with us since we began in 2008.

The Sound of English

Every course includes our full 140 page book ‘The Sound of English’ with audio for use during and after your course.

What is covered?

There are 2 group levels – ’45 Sounds of GB English’ and ‘Stress & Intonation’ – together these give learners the key tools to make their pronunciation clear and accurate.

Level 1 – ’45 Sounds of English’

This is about the key elements of pronunciation:

– how to pronounce the 45 sounds accurately,
– how to choose sounds based on their spelling,
– how to join sounds,
– weak vs strong forms.
– IPA symbols for each sound.

After this course you will understand how to use your articulators (mouth, tongue, lips, jaw, throat) and voice to accurately produce English sounds.

Level 2 – Stress & Intonation

Level 2 is all about the melody and rhythm of spoken English:

– how to produce stress using pitch, volume and sound quality,
– how to join weak sounds together,
– how to separate speech into clear chunks,
– how to use the three English intonation patterns (\ \/ /),
– how intonation does and doesn’t change meaning and attitude.

After this course you will be able to break speech into manageable and clearly produced sections. You will also be able to distinguish between the different tones when you hear native speakers.

NOTE: We recommend taking level 1 before level 2, but it is not essential to do so. If you only wish to study level 2, or if the dates of the courses mean you need to swap the order, you can do so.
