The best way to learn spoken English

Simone

Every ESL learner has his or her own pronunciation problems, and that is why every single sound is important.
 
The first lesson of Saundz’s curriculum is pretty simple – it shows four different spellings of the vowel sound /ʌ/.
 
You have Simone, our virtual pronunciation teacher, showing you how to pronounce each sound and word within Saundz curriculum in addition to three other professionally recorded native speakers each pronouncing every sound and word.

 

  • Does this seem to basic for you?
  • Do you think that your knowledge of English is too advanced for this sort of exercise?
