English Accent Coach
English Accent Coach is an online tool for developing English pronunciation skills - focusing on vowels and consonants. For those who were brought up speaking a language other than English, it can be as difficult to recognize English speech sounds as it is to produce them. In fact, research has shown that pronunciation can improve when learners are coached to better recognize English sounds. More accurate and rapid recognition of sounds can also help learners to more quickly acquire English vocabulary.
English Accent Coach allows you to learn English vowels and consonants using an interactive game approach. During play, you will hear syllables or words with English sounds and you must click on the symbol for the sound you hear. The next two pages of the tour will allow you to familiarize yourself with the symbols that are used. These are the same symbols found in many English dictionaries.
