Learn how to pronounce the sounds and intonation of a standard GB English accent in a small group (2 to 8 learners) in Central London. Evening, weekend and intensive options available with a practical 2 level format:

Level 1: 45 Sounds

In ’45 Sounds’ we learn how to pronounce every sound of GB English. This involves practising where to place and how to use the articulators (tongue, jaw, throat, air flow, voice) and how to join the sounds together in connected speech. We also learn how these sounds appear in written English and their corresponding IPA symbols.

Key course content:
– Mouth Positions
– Joining
– Spelling to Sound
– IPA Symbols

Level 2: Stress & Intonation

In ‘Stress & Intonation’ the focus is firstly on choosing and producing clear stresses within words and sentences in an authentic English way. We then look at how to use the 3 intonation patterns of English (falling, fall-rising, rising) to create emotion and attitude in our speech. All of these elements are applied in practical conversation practice.

Key course content:
– Volume, Pitch & Length
– Stress Selection
– Pace & Pausing
– Intonation Patterns

You can cancel any time up to 5 days before the course is due to begin for a full refund minus £15 processing fee. Cancellations within 5 days of course start date are not refundable.

What’s the minimum and maximum group size?

The groups are from 2 to 8 people. In the very rare case that there is just one person booked, we offer the choice of a full refund or a shorter individual course.

Where do classes take place?

In central London at Pronunciation Studio in Holborn – 22 Bloomsbury Square, WC1A 2NS. See our contact page for more information.

Is there a minimum English level?

Our teachers will speak at normal native speed in class, so it is essential that learners can follow this without getting lost. The courses are suitable on this basis, for high intermediate to proficient level speakers.

What happens if I miss a class?

If you can’t attend one of your classes, your teacher will show you which parts of the course materials you have missed. If you would like to take the class, you can book a 30 minute or 60 minute 121 class at a special rate (£30/30 minute, £60/60 minute) and go through the material with your teacher.

Do you offer accommodation for visitors?

We don’t provide accommodation. If you are visiting to take a course, we recommend London University Rooms – which rents out student accommodation at affordable prices.
