You cannot speak English clearly if you do not know how to link, how to speak in syllables, and how to correctly pronounce each of the                                       sounds in American English.

Were you taught how to pronounce the sounds used in American                                    English correctly?
You MUST pronounce each sound of American English correctly.  If you do not use the correct sounds, YOU ARE NOT SPEAKING ENGLISH.  Native speakers only understand the sounds used in their language.  Our students are the best proof.  They say,

"I can tell you, from my experience, that people that speak English will not understand you if you do not pronounce the sounds correctly.

Laura E.

"I thought I was being taught correct pronunciation from my school.   When I got to the U.S., no one could understand me, and I couldn't understand them.  The first thing this program teaches is how to correctly pronounce the sounds of American English, by teaching how to shape the lips, where to put the tongue, and jaw.  They have videos that give a close view of the mouth of a native speaker."

***99% of English courses DO NOT teach the spoken language***

                   Do you know what "linking" is???

In English, the SPOKEN LANGUAGE is different than the WRITTEN LANGUAGE.                We do not SPEAK words.  We read words. We write words.                        
             WE SPEAK SYLLABLES, AND WE LINK THE SYLLABLES.

How important are syllables and linking?  See what our                    students have to say.  Click on a photo below.

First, you must learn correct pronunciation.

We teach the correct mouth positions for each of the 45 sounds in American English taught on this website. In "Focus Sounds" we focus on one sound at a time telling you where to place your lips, teeth, and tongue.  We then give you a video that allows you to view closely the mouth of a native speaker.

Click here to go to Focus Sounds, and see a free sample lesson of how we teach sounds


Let our students tell you:
     "In the focus sound section, there are lessons that explain where to put the lips, teeth, and tongue for each sound.  There are 17 sounds that require a pucker of different shapes and sizes.  You must study, and practice these sounds until you are able to make them correctly."

Our lessons are based on the first 300 Most Frequently             Used Words in the English Language.

  •  The first 25 words represent 1/3 of all written text.
  •  The first 100 words represent 1/2 of all written text.
  •  The first 300 words represent 65% of all written text. 

If you will learn to pronounce these words perfectly, and then learn how to link them, you can reduce your accent by 65%!

We teach rules of pronunciation, which teach how to divide words into syllables, and how to link syllables.  

We teach rules of pronunciation, which teach when a vowel sound is long or short.

Try to pronounce every syllable!

Do you know English speakers speak syllable by syllable?  You must pronounce every syllable.

Do you know you MUST know when a vowel is long or short?         Can you hear the difference between these words?

 Click here to see if you hear the different vowel sounds.

  Many times, the only sound that is different, in one word or another, is the vowel sound.
