TOP REVIEWS FROM VOWELS OF AMERICAN ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION
Very helpful. This course provides a core for learning vowels pronunciation and truly shows interesting information that I've never learnt before when studying at compulsory school.
Well structured. Good instructors, Good lecture. Recommend for all who want to improve English pronunciation especially those who learn English as a second language like me.
4 because it's really hard when you have to wait more than a week for an assignment review, on the other hand the material and classes were fantastic.
It's a great course that helps non-native speakers to understand the native speakers' conversations and speak in English with an American accent.
