Pronunciation Coaching

Are you understood 100% of the time?

Also known as elocution or accent reduction, pronunciation coaching can transform the way you speak.

I work with native and non-native English speakers using the articulatory or ‘discovery’ approach, to ensure that they sound the way they want to.

Pronunciation is a physical skill not an intellectual one. It is only through understanding how sounds are created that you transform the way you speak.

SOUNDS

Produce the characteristic sounds of Southern Standard British English (SSBE) or ‘BBC English’

RHYTHM

Create the unique rhythm of the language by knowing when and where to stress or reduce syllables

MELODY

Replicate the distinctive melody of spoken English to communicate the message you intend to

Simple but effective

“Carrie was able to identify all the weak points in my pronunciation, develop a systematic approach to improve them and find simple but effective ways of helping me achieve my goal.”

I am much more confident in my speech

“Carrie helped me understand what I was doing wrong and why. The exercises she gave me have corrected and improved my pronunciation greatly. How have things changed for me since? I am much more confident in my speech.”

Easy to understand

“Carrie was very committed to improving my pronunciation, explaining everything in terms which were easy to understand, so I could practise on my own. She used practical methods to help me visualise my pronunciation issues and supported me in my attempts to produce ‘new’ sounds. Above all, she helped me realise that I was able to do it.”
