How to learn American pronunciation with the Say It Better course?

The course starts with a short introduction in which you learn all the sounds typical of American pronunciation. Then you go on to the following chapters devoted to single sounds, consisting of presentation cards and different types of exercises. Once you have done each of them, you make a self-assessment by choosing one of the three available options (I Know, I Don’t Know, I Almost Know). On its basis, the SuperMemo algorithm will establish an individual repetition plan for you.

The structure of the chapters is identical: at the beginning of each chapter you watch a short animation presenting the correct pronunciation of a given sound. After familiarizing yourself with it, you discover words in which the sound discussed in the chapter occurs and go through 8 gap-fill exercises in which you must write down the word you hear correctly. In the next part of the course you learn 8 pairs of words with a similar sound (or another 8 single words if there are no such pairs for the sound), and then you will take a test where you select one of two sounds for a given word or one of two words for the sound being played. The last section of each chapter consists of 10 sentences designed to consolidate the correct pronunciation of the words learned on previous cards, alone or with the support of the speech recognition function available in mobile applications for Android and iOS.
