What are we aiming for?

We aim for ‘intelligibility’.   You don’t need to sound ‘British’ or to sound ‘American’.   You need to speak so that people can easily understand you.

Our analysts listen for competencies and challenges when we analyse your speech.

We can work with you on:

  • specific English sounds (phonemes)
  • syllables and word-level elements
  • thought-groups, sentence stress, intonation and stress-timing
  • any particular mother tongue or personal tendencies which may interfere with your listeners’ understanding

What will we do in your Personal Pronunciation Clinic BASIC Programme?

We will:

  1. conduct a Personal Diagnostic Interview with you about the speaking challenges you face.
    This will take 20 to 25 minutes – by voice or video link. You will receive immediate informal feedback and advice, followed by more detailed specific written feedback.
  2. customise two Personal Practice Activities designed to help you to achieve permanent progress.
    • We will send you a personalized written activity.
    • You will complete the activity and return a sound file.
    • We will respond with a short video offering personal feedback.
    • Personal Practice Activity 1
      Personal Instructions >>> Your Response >>> Our Video Feedback
      Personal Practice Activity 2Personal Instructions >>> Your Response >>> Our Video Feedback
    3. conclude with a live 20-minute Personal Pronunciation Tutorial discussion.
    This will include
    • a written Personal Pronunciation Clinic Programme Summary
    • a list of specific personal suggestions for your future use.
    • a reference list of general additional resources.
