TOP REVIEWS FROM THE MUSIC OF AMERICAN ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION
I really enjoyed this course and would recommend it to anyone looking to perfect their American English pronunciation. Thank you!
The hardest of all the courses. I will need to practice even more to improve not only my intonation but also my hearing, comprehension of it.
It's a great course to improve your speaking skill and lever your English language knowledge in an upper step.
Very Nicely taught. But more time is needed for me to perfect.
Thanks a ton.
