Improve your pronunciation & develop a good accent!
Most people learn by focusing on reading and writing—text focused learning that's more appropriate for native speakers because the already know how to speak!
The best way to learn pronunciation is by listening to and imitating good speech by native speakers. Use your ears and mouth to learn, not your eyes!
We'll teach you techniques to develop and maintain a clear accent, and it will also improve your listening ability, and give you a more intuitive feel for grammar!
