What you'll learn
We'll begin with listening comprehension exercises and continue until the learner(s) start getting comfortable with understanding the native accent up to at least 80%. This helps the brain to register the different sounds of spoken English and also expands the vocabulary in the process. Once the first goal is reached, we move on to formally learning the fundamentals of spoken English (IPA) and getting to know how to produce these sounds. The placement of various organs involved in sound production (articulators) is emphasized because this helps put the learner in auto-pilot mode. By auto-pilot, I mean that the learner can self-identify the mistakes in pronunciation and once practised enough, can correct those without help. After that, we work on syllable stress and voice modulation by starting with relatively simple speech or reading practices. Gradually, we move on to more complex reading and speech delivery. If there's a need/request by the learner, we can push forward to mastering Public Speaking as well.
