Improve your pronunciation with our American English group pronunciation course. In this group course, you’ll learn to hear and produce important vowel contrasts, consonant sounds and stress patterns that will help you speak more clearly and be understood more easily.
There are two very important things you’ll get out of this course. The first is a wealth of in-depth information about American English pronunciation. You’ll learn exactly what to do and how to do it. The second important aspect of this training is feedback. An experienced instructor will give you direct, specific feedback that will help you make gains in your skills more quickly.
This nine-session course will begin on Thursday, February 17th, at 7:00pm CST and end on Thursday, April 21st. Classes will be held virtually (via Zoom) weekly with a one-week break on Thursday, March 17th.
All participants will send in a screener (emailed to you after registration) so we can customize the course based on student needs. Participants will receive a six-month subscription to Englission.com, our e-learning site. Students will use this site to access additional video lessons and extensive practice activities to enhance their learning in between the live training classes.

“As a result of the accent training classes, I became so much more confident when pronouncing words and sentences. My accent has become more natural in such a short amount of time thanks to Jane.”
“Working with Jane not only helped me improve my English pronunciation, but also my confidence to talk and put myself out there… I am very happy when I think about the journey and the work I put in to get to this moment, and I’m thankful for Jane’s help.”
