“The Vowels of British English has the content you need to pronounce vowels correctly. John is a very professional, knowledgeable and responsible coach. His course help me to learn how to pronounce vowels in British English. The course has a great structure as well. John is very professional and he could spot my problems easily and correct me. He has a broad knowledge of how people from different backgrounds speak English incorrectly. And he always pointed out as a mandarin speaker, what do I tend to pronounce wrong. He has been my coach for around 9 months now and I speak more and more like British. ”

“The Vowels of British English is built brilliantly - very well organised, clear, logical, user friendly = easy to navigate. Graphics and all visuals are simple, informative and support the explanations very well. I liked the use of pictures in the quiz part and well known people in the examples part - it makes learning more fun. The way John demonstrates all the tongue and mouth positions is perfect. My only suggestion would be to add a bigger vocabulary list to illustrate where this or that sound is used.”

“Daily Listening Workout 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. The Vowels of British English 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”

“I've finished The Vowels of British English 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. ”
