Pronunciation can’t be learned from a book. Once a word is spoken out loud, its pronunciation often changes, and the only way to learn about that pronunciation is to listen to native speakers and then imitate them. This course will give you the opportunity to do just that – to watch, listen to, and imitate native speakers of American English – with powerful practice material and straight-forward instructions that will maximize your learning!
