I searched for years for course tutor to help me improve my pronunciation. But there are very few courses that teach it and all of them very overpriced and very expensive! Anton has made a great course. He himself has the most perfect British English pronunciation and a talent to make it easy for his students to understand. After just one lesson my colleagues at work noticed an improvement in how I speak! I also started feeling much more confident at professional events where I have to do public speaking in English, or even just chatting with my English friends. The whole process of English speech became more enjoyable for me. Deep gratitude to Anton for a truly amazing and every clear course in British English pronunciation. It has really made a difference to my professional presentation and confidence. Thank you so much ))!!

自分は30代の日本人で、これまで海外への留学経験は無かったのですが、仕事の関係で渡英したのをきっかけに、折角ならBritish Englishを身に付けたいと思い、発音の先生を探していました。 先生の条件は、1.日本人特有のクセを把握していることと(その共有が出来ないと何故出来ないのかが理解されないと仮定)、2.発音を論理的に捉えていること、3.ネイティブであること。 インターネットでAntonのことを知り、体験レッスンを通じて説明を受けた所、条件に合致していたので、オンラインコースとプライベートレッスンの両方を始めました。 オンラインコースはゼロベースから行う包括的なものになっており、一つ一つの母音の解説から始まるので、体系的に理解することが出来、楽しく進めていくことが出来ました。 それと同時に、母音の発音の仕方すら知らなかったことや、どれだけ適当に発音していたかがよく分かりました。 4カ月くらいかけて、隙間時間を使いながら本コースを完了しましたが、発音は良くなったと同僚等からも言われますし、学んだことを使って、ネイティブスピーカーの話している音声がより聞きやすくなったり、新しい単語に出会っても辞書を見ればある程度発音記号を読んでどう発生すれば良いか分かったりする等の副次効果も実感しています。 これだけの内容、音声サンプルのボリュームでこの価格なのはとてもリーズナブルだと思います。発音の基礎作りとしてお勧めします。 I am a Japanese in my thirties and have never studied abroad before. As I moved to England due to my job, I wanted to be able to speak British English taking advantage of living here. So I was looking for an English teacher focusing on pronunciation. A teacher who I was looking for was: 1. understands the pronunciation habits of Japanese (assumed that if they do not know it, they can't understand why I can’t pronounce as they do), 2. has a logical approach to pronunciation, and 3. is a British native speaker. I found out Anton on the internet and asked for a trial lesson. As I thought he meets the points above through the trial, I started both the online course and the private lessons. The online course is comprehensive, starts from scratch, and gives you an explanation of each vowel. This is systematic and enjoyable for me. While at the same time, I found that I didn't even know how to pronounce the vowels and how much I had been pronouncing incorrectly. It took about 4 months to complete the course because I did this little by little when I have a short period of time like 15-20mins/day. My colleagues told me that my pronunciation has improved. Also, I realized that I can use what I have learned from the course, to listen to native speakers more easily, and when I encounter a new word, I can look at the dictionary and imagine how to pronounce it because I can read the phonetic alphabet now. I think the price is quite reasonable for such a large volume of content and audio samples. I recommend this course to build your basics of pronunciation. Thank you Anton.
