About Us

Don Atherton began teaching in 1961.  For many years he taught math.  When Mr. Atherton began teaching pronunciation he was surprised that there were no rules to follow.  Pronunciation was taught by memorization, and no one was teaching that our spoken language is different than our written language.  The correct mouth positions are very important for making the correct sounds.  Yet, Mr. Atherton found that other teachers were not teaching correct mouth positions.  He also found that no one was teaching the difference between modern and phonetic pronunciation, and how to link the two together.  Mr Atherton used his experience as a math teacher to bring rules with logic and reasoning to the study of pronunciation.  This web site is the result of his many years of experience teaching pronunciation.  Mr. Atherton wants to share his knowledge with those wanting to learn modern English  pronunciation.
