Find your own voice and use it with confidence!

The Sound of English is a practical course in pronunciation. The course will help students produce accurate consonant and vowel sounds and correctly apply word stress, sentence stress and intonation. It will also enable students to improve their listening skills.

The course is aimed at anyone who wants to give their spoken English a boost whether or not you wish to sound like a native. We encourage you to find your own voice and use it with confidence!

As with any exercise regime, the best results are achieved if you work out on a daily basis and your personal trainer Penny will give you tips and advice on how to do this.
