Master vowel sounds while learning the most common English expressions

- Yasmine Al Massri, Actress in Hollywood

This course is for you if:

  • People ask you to repeat yourself when you speak English.
  • Your English teachers didn’t teach the correct pronunciation of English sounds.
  • You don't want to spend thousands of dollars taking one-on-one lessons with a professional speech therapist or accent reduction coach.
  • You speak English well but you still don’t feel confident around native speakers.
  • You wish you could use common idiomatic expressions naturally, like a native speaker.
  • You want quick results but you have seen no improvement in your speech by watching YouTube videos and studying from books.

"The courses give you really fast results. It just feels so great when you don’t have to repeat yourself, when you don’t have to explain yourself, and when you can finally stop apologizing for the way you sound."

- Tania, From Ukraine, working in New York City

Lisa is a former college instructor of English who left her academic teaching career to found Accurate English over 20 years ago.

All of her courses are designed with that philosophy in mind.

Teaching accurate English communication to advanced learners of English has been her main goal and passion for the last thirty years.
