✦ Learn British English Pronunciation with Pronunciation Studio's new ebook ✦
ʻThe Sound of Englishʼ will take you step by step to clear, confident spoken English. It is a practical, interactive course covering the vowels, consonants, spelling to sound rules and melody of a neutral GB English accent, sometimes known as RP or BBC English.
Designed for learners who aim to make their English sound accurate and confident like a native speaker, over 9 chapters you will learn to correctly produce all 45 English sounds. On top of sounds, each chapter covers key elements of joining, spelling to sound rules, stress and intonation with lots of everyday examples to practise. Including hundreds of repetition drills, exercises and audio, the method is highly practical and fun to follow. The entire 183 page course will take 20 to 30 hours of study, but you will want to continue practising the drills long after completion to ensure long term improvement.
The course was made at Pronunciation Studio school in London - home to a team of specialist IPA certified ESL teachers, where thousands of students from over a hundred countries have taken their speech to its full potential. The benefits of completing the course are firstly improved listening skills and then clear, accurate, beautifully constructed spoken English. The free sample contains your own interactive IPA sound chart with audio examples of every sound in English and a guide to structure and intonation.

Great book to learn how to sound more like a native speaker
For a long time I knew that I needed to improve my pronunciation skills. Mainly for my job in an international marketing department, but also outside work, sometimes, actually quite often my pronunciation was a barrier. ‘The Sound of English’ is helping me a lot to reduce my strong accent and improve accuracy since it teaches you all the sounds and the rules.
Worth every penny!
I’m really surprised by the amount of work put into this ebook. Congrats to the Author.
One of the best book, if not the best of its kind.
