Hello, I'm Abbie

I'm on a mission to help teachers find the learners who need them. I've been an English language teacher for 16 years, and languages are one of my passions. Connecting people is what lights me up, so with my online events and the Elevate membership I'm aiming to get learners together with the teachers they need. And link up teachers with the trainers and coaches who will help them.

Teacher's Guide to Global English Pronunciation

English is a global language - so why are you still teaching native-like pronunciation?

There's something fishy about the way we teach pronunciation. Take 'th' sounds for example - those notorious phonemes that just won't behave and are actually totally unnecessary to get right for intelligibility. Many 'native' speakers don't nail them every time either. Yet we seem to spend an inordinate amount of class time on them.

I put all I learnt about English pronunciation for global understanding into a very quick video course. Here you can learn the six essential elements learners need to master to be understood, and understand others around the world.

Stop wasting your class time on things your learners don’t need to master, and change to what is essential, and do-able.
