british pronunciation, accent & elocution lessons online

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

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

Perhaps you find it frustrating that people frequently ask you to repeat yourself, due to misunderstanding your pronunciation.

These are all common reasons for which my students come to me for assistance.  Working on your Pronunciation, Accent and English Elocution will address these matters and more.  I teach a very practical method of achieving a more British sound to your speech, by providing in-depth analysis and feedback, and consequent targeted exercises that focus on your pronunciation and accent elocution.

Furthermore, we are now in an age where frequent technological communication has become the norm in everyday work and study, through increased use of Zoom, MS Teams, Youtube, Facebook and Skype; making it even more important to carry a maximum clarity, impact and expression in everything you say to your listeners.

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

how it works

1. Identify

In our first session together, I will carry out an assessment to identify for you exactly which aspects of your accent pronunciation and elocution can be improved upon - whether it be your vowels, consonants, speech-patterns, tonality, rhythm or stress-intonations.

 

This will serve as our roadmap for the remainder of the first lesson and going forwards, as to how we should best optimise our lesson-time together to accelerate the improvements to your accent and pronunciation in as short a time as possible.

2. Learn

Once I have identified your specific problem-areas, I will start by teaching you a base-understanding of how the mouth's speech organs work in tandem together to create sound, in particular connecting it to any pronunciation difficulties you may be experiencing.

I will explain specifically what it is that's making your accent, rhythm and tonality differ from standard British elocution. We will strengthen your articulation, and where necessary, I will teach you basic-level Phonetics (IPA) to help you self-navigate in the long-term.

3. Improve

And then we will get cracking on improving your pronunciation!  I will work on:

  • Strengthening the specific muscle-groups in your mouth to create British sounding vowels and consonants in your accent.

  • Practicing the specific sounds, intonations and rhythms which are preventing you from achieving British pronunciation. 

  • Perfecting the 100 most commonly used words in the English language, so that you notice a quick improvement in your speaking.

Each Zoom lesson is recorded and sent to you as a file via WeTransfer after each lesson.  These can then serve as a reminder to watch in your own time of the detailed feedback and notes I give to you during our sessions. 

 

If you select the Standard or Premium Packages, you also receive a 3-month follow-up via Whatsapp wherein you can send me any voice-clips of words/phrases you are stuck on, and I will provide you feedback and recordings of the correct-pronunciation.  

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, with stable wifi-connection.

  • It is recommended that you join the lessons from your Laptop, rather than Phone, as I will be sharing reading-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 and I will deliver the lesson orally instead. 

  • Lessons last 1 hour, and are supplemented with worksheets which I share with you on screen and then send to you after each lesson.  You will be assigned homework between sessions - which though are not mandatory - are highly recommended that you spend some time on between sessions, to maximize and accelerate your learning.  Alternatively, these homeworks can be worked on in your own time after we finish our course of lessons together.

  • Payment is required 24 hours before the start of any first lesson, and I'm happy to reschedule at short notice (i.e. no cancellation fee) as I'm understanding to my client's busy schedules. Payments are to be made by Paypal.​

[Please note that in-person coaching (in our London office) has been paused until October 2021, due to the coronavirus situation].

"Been trying a few teachers. So far, Sanjay is the best for me. Very passionate, kind, knowledgeable & he is just so good at teaching pronunciation. Must try if you want to improve your English pronunciation. He is awesome!!!!"

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+"

Dimitri, Italy

"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".
