@pronunciationwithemma – Emma from the UK – 174K followers
Unlike Spanish or Italian, English can be a real challenge when it comes to reading and speaking pronunciation.
Many of the sounds change depending on the letters around them, and three or four words that look incredibly similar are all pronounced in different ways.
Emma shows her followers the right way to say all the different sounds you’ll find in the English language, and how to recognise them.
Her easy to follow and high quality lessons will teach you everything you need to know to get started speaking English. She also provides a free pronunciation course which is a great help too.
