Accent Reduction and Pronunciation Training
The training gives you everything you need to improve your English pronunciation and English speaking!
- Word stress
Are you using emphasis and rhythm well in English?
- Vowel length
In English we have long vowels, short vowels and double vowels and many non-native speakers don’t distinguish between these correctly. For example, the words ‘coat’, ‘cot’ and ‘caught’ should each sound different. Do you know which one has the short vowel, long vowel and double vowel and are you confident with these?
- Moving and opening your mouth
English has more open sounds than many other languages. We need to open our mouth and jaw to pronounce many sounds like /o/, /a:/, /ou/ etc. clearly. If you don’t, you’ll sound like you’re mumbling. Are you using good mouth movements for clear English?
- Rate of speaking (speed)
Some non-native speakers speak English too fast. When you speak English very fast, it is likely your pronunciation and clarity will become worse. Often people’s word stress gets flatter, the might drop sounds and their vowels get shorter. Are you using a good rate of speaking in English?
- Word endings
The ends of words in English are very important. It’s often where we mark grammar like the past tense, plurals etc. Are you using past tense endings correctly? This is SO important in English.
