Transcript Snapshot (Short Course on English Pronunciation)

What you should know about Pro Speak:
Pro Speak is about English pronunciation. It helps you speak better English.
I’ve done so many lessons now with various students and have found that there are common mistakes that English learners make.
I wanted to clarify what these mistakes are and fix them forever.
These mistakes you’re making, you’re probably not even aware of them until someone points out. And then you start to blush! Or feel embarrassed.
I don’t think they teach you this in schools.
So I have decided to create a course around these pronunciation mistakes.
It will open your eyes to the English pronunciation.
If you’re struggling with English pronunciation then this course is for you.
It is made up of 3 modules split over 3 weeks.
I’m doing it a bit different this time around!
Last year when I ran the course, we learnt about the symbol ‘Schwa’ in week 3, HOWEVER this year, the module three is going to be about GERUNDS!
Can gerunds help you speak better English?
Yup, yup, yup. Yes, they can!
If you don’t know gerunds are… well you’re going to learn what they are inside Pro Speak.
Here’s a quick snapshot of the course:
In week 1 – You’ll learn three different sounds for pronouncing regular verbs in the past tense. Mispronouncing regular verbs will make you sound unprofessional!
In week 2 – You’ll realise why it’s so hard to understand fast-talking native speakers! There is a grammatical explanation to the way native speakers talk.
In week 3 – this is your bonus week, my padawan. This year, we’re learning about gerunds and prepositional phrases and how it can make you a fluent speaker.
Throughout the course, you’ll get a chance to practice your pronunciation with specific exercises by recording your answers!
Most of my students have busy schedules with families and work, so I wanted to create a course that they can do without any pressure and still be able to do all the exercises and get feedback from me. We will be interacting the whole three weeks.
If this sounds awesome pawsome, then I’d love for you to join me inside Pro Speak!
If you’d like to know more details and learn how to sign up for the course, you can join the waitlist. When you visit englishmadesimple.net you’ll see a pop up from the left-hand side, enter your details and I will send you more details about the course.
People who join the waitlist will get a special gift! I want to thank you for taking the time to come onto the waitlist, so I wanted to reward you, and give you a gift.
The course will start on 23rd February.
This program is for you if you:
– Are struggling to make conversation with other English speakers because you feel embarrassed about your pronunciation
– Feel stressed or nervous when having to keep a conversation going
– Can’t express yourself clearly when someone asks you about your weekend
– Feel mentally exhausted every time you speak English with someone! (If you live in an English-speaking country, you’ll know what I mean ;)
And if you have any questions about the course, you can always contact me at [email protected]
