Live Group Courses

Improve your American English pronunciation and become a confident English speaker.

Group classes are ideal for people looking to improve their pronunciation and elevate their spoken English. In a group class, you learn in a safe environment and you are exposed to a wide variety of accents, which will improve your listening and communication skills. Language is social, so there's nothing better than practicing your pronunciation with other people to build up your confidence. This methodology will also give you the opportunity to immediately implement everything you learn in the courses in real-life interactions.

Another great benefit is that you get to meet people who share the same motivation and challenges as you, and that will help you take action and stay on track to achieve your pronunciation goals. In short, some of the benefits of group courses are:

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Exposure to different accents, which will improve your listening skills.
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Interaction with other people, which is great to enhance your interpersonal skills.
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Immediate implementation in a safe environment.
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Speaking practice to build up confidence in front of other English speakers.
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Constant and detailed feedback from your coach.

Each course is designed to last a total of 8 weeks, so if you decide to invest in both courses, it will take you 4 months in total.

These courses are delivered live, so we meet via Zoom once a week for a total of 8 weeks. We cover one key sound and/or concept per session. You are then assigned homework to practice and make progress throughout the week. 

Yes. In order to create muscle memory and make new sounds permanent and automatic, you must practice 10-20 minutes every day. The homework consists of PDF practice guides accompanied with audio files that you must use daily to improve your pronunciation.

All materials are stored in Google Classroom for easy access and organization. At the beginning of the course, you will receive an invite to join Google Classroom. 

No worries! All sessions will be recorded and the recordings will be uploaded to Google Classroom, where you can watch them at a later time.

Ideally, you should have an upper-intermediate to advanced level because these courses are designed to improve the pronunciation and spoken English of people who already speak the language. If you are still working on the basics of English or struggle in conversations, these courses are not for you.

Yes, of course! For a more comprehensive learning experience, it’s advisable to invest in both courses. However, keep in mind that the courses aren’t taught simultaneously. We start with Pronunciation Makeover 1, and continue with Pronunciation Makeover 2 after a 2-week break in between courses.

If you buy both courses at the same time, you get a 10% discount if you pay in full. ($510 USD in total)

The courses have been 100% designed to give you real results. That being said, you must put in the work and be consistent with your practice. If you aren't consistent with your pronunciation practice, you will not see results. In order to acquire new sounds, you must create muscle memory, which takes time.

Think of it as going to the gym. You wouldn't go to the gym once or twice and expect results, right? You need to deliberately and progressively train your muscles to get in shape. Your tongue, the main articulator in your mouth, works exactly the same way. In order to produce new sounds, you need to train it deliberately and progressively on a daily basis.

No, they aren’t. Feedback will be provided in every session, but these courses are designed to help you improve your pronunciation in a social environment where you can interact with other speakers in real time. This will expose you to a variety of accents and boost your confidence when speaking in public. To ensure effective results and speaking practice, each course is limited to 6 students only.

If you want to work with me on a 1:1 basis and get personalized feedback, you can click HERE.

The core of these courses is pronunciation (the accurate production of vowel and consonant sounds), and prosody (stress, rhythm and intonation), but assistance with grammar and vocabulary will also be provided if necessary.
