Course description

These lessons will have you understanding more Americans and knowing how to imitate them in no time. What phrases do Americans use? What are their pronunciation habits?

There are two kinds of conversations in this course: scripted conversations, which are a little slower and clearer, good for intermediate learners, and real English conversation from my life. These move at a fast pace and are great for advanced learners.

Students always want more conversation analysis, and that’s exactly what you’ll get here. Each lesson begins with a Ben Franklin analysis exercise, where we pick apart the pronunciation. Then there will be audio soundboards for you to practice with, or imitation audio files for to you download and listen to for a more sit-back-and-listen experience.

This was the first moduleI I completed and everything worked seamlessly. Ben Franklin exercises are really the cherry on the cake. They are extremely challenging and push us hardly. My suggestions are regarding the " Slow Motion Imitation" exercises. They are a bit lengthy and the chunks could be longer so we can practice a higher number of variation in the intonation each time. It would also be great if some marks were added along the time scale showing where each sentence starts. It would help us to go straight to the phrase we want to practice. Apart of that the material is amazing. Congrats!

Hi Rachel, Thank you very much! I finally can say words like sun,bun,fun, lung,nut,but,mug, and the short words as bag, bath,battle. My favorite parts are the slow motion which I can hear the sound clearly. I am getting there, and would like to study as much as possible every day. Fang

Ben Franklin exercises are my favorite Rachel's English videos, but this course goes even further - it has lots of drill exercises, so we can internalize by repeating the sentences. Also, it's very fun. This approach not only helps us speak better but it also improve our listening comprehension, which is so important.

She studied with highly acclaimed vocal teachers and coaches and brings a body of detailed knowledge connected to the voice, placement, and the musical nature of speech to her work as a pronunciation teacher.

Rachel lives in Philadelphia. She was born and raised in Florida, went to college in Indiana where she studied Applied Math, Computer Science, and Music, and graduate school for Opera Performance in Boston. Thereafter, she spent 8 years in NYC before moving to Philadelphia. She and her husband have one son, and enjoy hiking, road tripping, and cooking.
