Introducing the Daily Training Program for an Authentic British English Accent
The Daily Training Program is a meticulously crafted course that I designed to help students internalize the natural sounds of British English pronunciation and speak with an authentic British accent. It provides an alternative to costly private accent reduction lessons by minimizing the need for constant teacher intervention, allowing students to proceed comfortably at their own pace.
Traditional accent reduction methods often fall short of producing desired results because while teachers can identify students' pronunciation mistakes and provide necessary drills, many students struggle to internalize the target sounds. This is primarily due to the infrequency of practice between weekly lessons, as students tend to revert to their familiar accents. Consequently, forming new habits and accelerating improvement becomes challenging, leading many individuals to give up on improving their accent altogether.
To address this challenge, the Daily Training Program offers a series of daily exercises focused on listening and repetition. These exercises aim to embed the natural sounds of British English into students' subconscious, similar to private lessons but without the immediate correction from a teacher. By engaging in these exercises daily, students have the opportunity to reinforce their pronunciation skills consistently.
As students progress through the course, they should observe a gradual decrease in the frequency of errors in their speech. This approach helps them gain a better understanding of their progress and motivates them to continue their journey towards achieving an authentic British accent.
It is important to note that the Daily Training Program is methodologically designed to provide structured exercises and guidance for internalizing the building blocks of native-like speech. It starts with mastering the basic phonemes of English in their simplest forms, dissociating words and their meanings from their sounds. By focusing solely on internalizing these sounds, students can bypass the internal language filter and make significant strides in their accent improvement.
To support all students in their accent journey, access to the Daily Training Program's exercises is provided at no extra charge for those enrolled in my lessons. This ensures that students can practice and reinforce their pronunciation skills on a daily basis, leading to tangible progress and the acquisition of an authentic British accent.
Here's a breakdown of the Daily Training Program:
- Audio files and accompanying PDFs: The program provides recorded audio files of British English pronunciation (Received Pronunciation) along with PDF guides, creating a comprehensive learning package.
- Incremental approach: The program starts by breaking down sounds into the smallest possible segments and gradually combines them, allowing students to focus on articulating fundamental sounds without associating them with specific words or meanings.
- Progressive difficulty levels: There are various levels within the program, progressing from single phonemes to frequently used syllables, connecting sounds, two-word combinations, and beyond. This gradual increase in difficulty helps students build upon their skills as they progress.
- Spaced repetition: The program utilizes spaced repetition techniques, ensuring that students are exposed to the sounds repeatedly over time. This approach helps students absorb the sounds into their subconscious and reinforces their learning.
- High-quality audio recordings: The audio files are recorded using a professional microphone and encoded in MP3 format at 320kbps, ensuring clear and crisp sound quality for effective listening and practice.
- Continuous updates: The program is continually being updated to provide new content and exercises, ensuring that students have access to fresh material and can continue their progress.
- Integration with lessons: Combining the Daily Training Program with regular lessons enhances the learning experience and allows students to advance at an exponential rate by reinforcing their pronunciation skills consistently.
All files are professionally recorded using a Rode nt1a studio condenser microphone and encoded at 320kbps.
