TEACHER WHO’S BEEN THROUGH IT
I've been teaching English pronunciation in 5 countries for over 15 years to hundreds of students with varying language backgrounds. That not only gives me a ton of patience, but helps me understand exactly what you’re struggling with and exactly how I can help you improve. And I'm only getting better.
A PROVEN PATH TO SUCCESS
Once we identify which speech patterns need work, I let you know how to modify them. We make this super easy through a unique system where we effectively use the spelling of your native language to help you sound native in American English.
FEEDBACK THAT WORKS
While kids pick up accents easily, adults need clear and thoughtful feedback to improve their pronunciation. I'll show you where your tongue goes, how to think about producing the sound, and everything else you need to master your new accent.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
Ruben's got it all. You can tell he knows his stuff. He has fun and engaging methods of getting you to think about pronunciation in new and dynamic ways. I liked the videos he sent me to imitate (and his feedback on my imitation of them), the insight he gave me into certain pronunciation patterns, and the feedback he gave me on my vocabulary choice. All of these things are practices and feedback that I am carrying with me now that my course is over. Ruben is also overall patient with progress and provides feedback in ways that are both encouraging and confidence-building.

WEEK 1: VOWEL SOUNDS
Deep dive into the nuanced vowel sounds of American English and compare them to vowel sounds in your language. Connect with our unique color-coded system that will help you pinpoint where to focus your practice, and get lots of repetition with my personal word lists and curated practice guides for the group
WEEK 2: CONSONANT SOUNDS
Learn to distinguish letters from sounds, and break the habit of reading with the pronunciation of your native language. Discover how aspiration, voicing, and clustering play a role in your overall accent when speaking English
WEEK 3: RHYTHM / LINKING / PROSODY
The most important features of the language deal with patterns of stress, word connection, and intonation. When combined, they allow you to express yourself more naturally, getting out more words per phrase and making better decisions with vocabulary. This shows a level of mastery and allows you to create deeper connections with other native speakers
WEEK 4: REVIEW
We look back on our 'tips of the day' and other lessons around pronunciation and word choice from the month. I'll answer your language questions and always address the biggest concerns we see based on our weekly conversations and feedback videos. A great chance to remove any doubts!
