Downloadable kits include recordings of authentic speakers demonstrating the five crucial elements needed to learn an accent, set out in a simple, easy to use structure;
- FREE SPEECH: a 1-3 minute story of personal interest in the speaker’s own words.
- FOUNDATIONS: the oral SETTING, the focal ZONE and the TONE of the accent.
- PRACTICE TEXT: the speaker reading a set text containing all the speech sounds and combinations you need.
- WORD LIST and SENTENCES: all the vowel shapes of the accent together with practice sentences recorded by the sample speaker.
- CONSONANTS and PRACTICE SENTENCES: six consonant sounds that can make or break your accent together demonstrated together with practice sentences recorded by the sample speaker.
Each element is user friendly, straight forward and easy to navigate.
Tap the question mark at any time for further guidance.
