English may only have five vowel letters, but it has around 15 distinct vowel sounds! This class will help you improve your comprehensibility and sound more like a native speaker by learning to hear and produce each of these sounds precisely. You will also study the trickiest consonant sounds and how to distinguish them in your speech.
All students will receive a copy of the eBook edition of “Mastering the American Accent” by Lisa Mojsin, M.A. to use as a textbook throughout the course.
