Introduction

Problem

During this course we will go over every sound and compare similar sounds so the student can learn to distinguish them. Special attention will be given to consonant blends as they are very important in English.
This course includes sample words, pronunciation drills, repeating short sentences, questions and expressions.
Audio files (mp3s) will be sent to the student so they may practice the pronunciation drills.

What can be achieved?
The student will gain confidence as they pronounce words more accurately and will become familiar with the spelling of words. Sound more natural when using common English expressions and when asking questions.
