“I've got knowledge of every single consonant sound and their interaction with other sounds by passing the course. I've completed both courses: "The vowels of British English" and "The Consonants of British English" and I believe I have got a full theoretical understanding of all the sounds of British English. Now it's time to practice more to sound like a native British speaker. Thank you, John, for your exceptional courses!”

“The audio test was the most interesting for me since it is challenging and aiming more for advanced students. You have to be attentitive since the speech tempo is high and the text itself is not an easy one. But you can play it as much as you like. I've made many mistakes though but that is for the best because now I have a better ear and understanding. I will redo it a bit later to check my progress. Thank you, John!”

“British English is very rich in vowel sounds. The non-phonetic spelling of words makes it difficult for foreigners to identify and memorise what these sounds are. This course provides clear explanation and examples of the 10 basic vowels, against the universal phonetic symbols and the real pronunciation. I am more confident that if I can make my speech clearer if I exercise my pronunciation according to the tangible examples given in this course”

“With his specific perfectionism, John created the exhaustive system in which every vowel is explained and put in the structure so there is no chance for ambiguity left. I would certainly recommend the course for those infuriated with the unpredictability of the British English pronunciation. This course saves time, nerve and money . ”

“I've finished this course but still come back to review some details whenever I have a spare minute. It's very convenient to use. The information is given in portions, so it is not tiresome, has lots of examples, excersises and quizes to check yourself and build better awareness. Before I didn't know that long vowels can sound shorter in certain words and the words like "pear, spare, aware" are pronounced with a long monophtong in modern British English instead of a dipthong, which I was tought before. Each vowel is shawn by John very clear and precise, with an indepth explanation, so you just take a mirror and start practicing. However, it is especially effective and the result seems obvious combining the course with personal training inbetween when you can get a proffessional advice and correct yourself. ”
