November, 2013

“I think that Saundz are correct that pronunciation practice, especially explicit practice, is often overlooked in classroom settings and there is a real need for an edtech solution to this problem.  I would say that rather than lots of teachers thinking it’s inferior, most just find the area confusing and complex and lack sufficient guidance on how to help learners with their problems.”
