The 3 Rs

How does it work?

My Lean Pronunciation Method prioritises the most problematic sounds, which leads to rapid progress. As each student's challenges are unique, so is the curriculum and the exact format of the lessons are tailored to the needs of the student. However, there are three main stages: reception, reproduction and repetition. These three stages happen simultaneously in a cycle known as 'the three Rs'

Speech analysis

The student’s speech is analysed to identify problematic sounds and other areas for improvement, including stress and intonation.

Reception

The student is taught to identify the target sounds and distinguish them from other sounds.

Reproduction

The student is taught to reproduce the target sounds accurately in isolation, words and connected speech.

Repetition

The student repeats exercises regularly to develop muscle memory in order to reproduce the target sounds accurately in real conversation.

Self-sufficiency

The student can confidently identify and reproduce the target sounds and requires less instruction from the teacher.

Requirements

Students must have a computer, headphones and a microphone. You will benefit less from my lessons if you use a smart phone.

The classes will take place on Skype, Zoom or Teams; students must have at least one of these applications.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Edward is very benevolent and he helps me to reduce my accent by "targeting" the sounds which are harder for me to pronounce properly.

Edward is a great tutor! He's knowledgeable and attentive. He's working on eliminating problems that I have in my pronunciation one by one and it seems to be working. :-) Highly recommended!

Edward is an excellent tutor. He gives me the resources to improve my pronunciation, listening and grammar in every lesson. If you want to understand and be understood he is highly recommended!
