English Pronunciation (new!)

This course is for advanced English speakers who learned English as a second language. Learn how to reproduce the North American vowel and consonant sounds, and develop your English-speaking abilities so that you can express yourself in English with confidence. You’ll open up your voice by using some of the same techniques actors use when learning accents, along with some practical ESL pronunciation techniques. Changing an accent takes time.
