Step 1.1 - Perfectly Natural English rhythm
You can learn to speak like a native English speaker. First,
English rhythm on this page, then you will speak more easily and fluently.
Step 1.2 - Learn English Dictations
My students' favorite way to learn! Listen to these
English dictations and try
to write down what you hear. Can you catch every sound?
Step 1.3 - Learn English pronunciation with "Shadow Practice"
another fun and easy way to
practice English pronunciation! Doing this while watching TV and movies is the most
entertaining way to improve your English.
Step 1.4 - Learn English vowels to help with rhythm and intonation
In English, five vowels (A, E, I, O,
and U) make 15 different sounds in American
English (and even more in British English!). Watch this
video to learn
English vowels used in American English, then watch
Vowels, Lesson 2 to practice using those vowel sounds.
Step 1.5 - Learn the most challenging English consonants
The most challenging English consonants are /TH/ (hard and soft),
/V/, and /L/
and /R/. Can you pronounce all of them? Another
difficulty is pronouncing groups of consonants together ("consonant clusters").
Practice saying words such as "instinct", "contrast", "impress" and "strange".
