Level: intermediate and above. Not just for mothers!
English is an essential skill your children need, are you ready and confident to help them?
Maybe you love English and you’re pretty fluent but there are some pronunciation points you’re just not sure of.
Maybe your kids love English but they’re worried they speak ‘broken’ English
You worry you, and your kids, don’t speak English clearly.
The real problem is you’re trying to copy native speaker models and you’re messing up those ‘th’ sounds and you still feel bad about it.
Pronunciation is so important because it's the first thing people notice about your speaking. How do you get it right?
750 million people are using English as non-native speakers. You are not alone. Your kids have to keep up with the global demand for English.
No matter what your accent, or your mother tongue, you can learn the pronunciations that really matter in English communication in today’s world. 96% of English conversations are happening with non-native speakers. You can be part of it, and your kids can speak clear English this week.
This is not a course to speak 'like a native,' because native speakers are the minority! This is a course to help you and your children communicate in today's world. Stop learning dialects, stop trying to copy native speakers, and stop pretending you're something you are not.
My name is Abbie, and I've been teaching English for over 14 years. 10 of those years was trying to force English-learners to be something they're not, to do away with their natural accents and make them sound British. No more! These days I know we have to cherish our own identities and embrace our own cultures, accents and even our mistakes. Your English is beautiful. Your kid's English can be wonderful.
How will this change your life?
"I knew that it’s not very important to sound like a native English speaker but now I've got which sounds I have to be careful about to be understood more.
And I listen a lot and my pronunciation has changed a lot. Not only pronunciation but also word choices and sentence stress are also influenced by who I listen to." E, Japan
