Voice Sample

I require a voice sample from applicants to my classes in order to check your pronunciation.

If your voice isn't intelligible, my strategies won't help you. In this case, it's better for you to spend your money on a speech therapist or accent reduction coach.

Some people don't want to hear that they need to work on their pronunciation. They seem to think that if they just improve their speaking strategies, they will get a high score. That doesn't work.

Your pronunciation doesn't have to be perfect, of course. There are some pronunciation points that I teach in class. But if you have severe pronunciation problems, you need to work on those with a trained specialist.

Please use English well!
