Speak English more clearly and reduce your accent with this innovative, accessible program
Perfect your English and speak without an accent with this easy-to-use program developed by an acclaimed speech consultant and accent specialist. Unlike other methods that encourage you to mimic audio sounds, Perfecting Your English Pronunciation 2nd Edition focuses on the physical ability to speak English. The program takes care to note that many English sounds may be difficult to learn because they are produced farther forward in the mouth using tongue positions that may not be used in your native language.
The DVD introduces you to mouth and jaw exercises to prepare you for speaking English, and then demonstrates mouth formations and tongue placement using nonnative speakers. The two audio CDs carefully go over the sounds of English, teaching you how to achieve those sounds. With this resource to guide you, you’ll soon be on your way to communicating in English with confidence.
Perfecting Your English Pronunciation 2nd Edition features:
•Streaming video with 10 minutes of articulation muscle exercises—"a full workout at the speech gym"¬— and 45 minutes depicting the physical formations of English sound, specifically difficult consonant and vowel sounds
•More than two hours of streaming audio reinforcing key sounds (for example, the different vowel sounds in "boo" and "book")
•Step-by-step instruction to help you achieve clear English pronunciation and reduce your native accent
•New edition includes additional model sentences, particularly appropriate for lower-level learners
