british english pronunciation, accent & elocution lessons online

Are you a Non-Native English speaker who finds that your accent, pronunciation or elocution doesn't always correctly convey or express what you are trying to say?

Or do you find that the clarity and sound of your spoken-English makes you feel self-conscious when speaking to others?

Or perhaps you find people frequently asking you to repeat yourself due to a misunderstanding in your pronunciation?

Working on your Pronunciation, Accent and English Elocution will address all these matters and more.  I teach a very scientific and practical method of achieving a more British sound to your speech, by providing a very in-depth analysis and consequent exercises for improving your accent, pronunciation and elocution.

In an age where technological communication has become more rapid and instantaneous through Youtube, Zoom, Facebook, Skype, it has become ever more important to carry a maximum clarity, impact and expression in everything you say to your audience.

So start your lessons today, and never feel misunderstood or unconfident about speaking English again.  London Pronunciation School provides you friendly and supportive, but intensely goal-driven 1:1 learning.

our 1:1 zoom coaching

  • Zoom 1:1 coaching from the comfort of your own space.  All you need is your laptop, a quiet place where we can hear each other, and stable wifi-connection. 
     

  • [Please note that in-person coaching has been paused until the coronavirus situation clears].

  • Lessons last 1 hour, and are supplemented with worksheets which we provide before each lesson.  You will be assigned homework between sessions - which though not mandatory to complete - are highly recommended that you work on finishing between sessions to maximize and accelerate your learning.

 

  • Payment is required 24 hours before the start of any first lesson, and we're happy to reschedule at short notice if required (i.e. no cancellation fee) as we appreciate people's busy schedules. Payments are to be made by bank transfer.

  • It is recommended that you join the lessons from your laptop, rather than Tablet or Phone, as we will be sharing interactive material with you via Zoom screen-share. But if you have dyslexia or difficulty reading from the screen, that's not a problem - just let us know before the session.

"The exercises that Sanjay teach are very helpful in improving pronunciation. With each lesson it is becoming easier to pronounce words correctly. I also found his explanations about which words to emphasise in a sentence very useful. Sanjay is very attentive to the needs that I expressed and tailored the session to help me achieve what I wanted to. I'm very happy with the progress I have made so far".

Amber, Malaysia

"Cannot recommend enough. I am already a returning customer, and will be again. Sanjay has been helping me (I'm Italian) with the English lyrics of the songs I wrote and are about to professionally record. Not only he takes care of the pronunciation, but also on the word-stress in the phrase, not to mention the overall expression. A+"
