“Last year, when I was doing a course of English in London, I found out that my pronunciation was not improving in any noticeable way. English schools are focused more on basic things like your ability to understand and to express yourself, rather than on doing it in a perfectly correct way. So I was looking for an additional course to support the main one, and in the end I stuck to the one-to-one course provided by Tamara Prokofyeva of Pronunciation First.
When it comes to pronunciation, it seems that classical format of mid-size groups does not work well. You need a teacher who is going to pay a lot of attention to your individual situation (it depends on your mother tongue, your ability to mimic sounds of other language etc.). Right after a few lessons I discovered a whole new world of sounds and hidden aspects of spoken British English, which you would never notice on your own.
I continue to study with Tamara even after finishing my course at language school, and I would definitely recommend her as a highly competent accent coach.”
