I’m Maria Fernandez, your English teacher
Hi, I’m Maria Fernandez, your English pronunciation teacher.
I’m a native Spanish speaker and I’ve learnt most of the English I know today as an adult.
Like many English learners, I didn’t pay attention to my English pronunciation for a long time. As I learnt more English, I realised that the reason why people couldn’t understand me wasn’t my grammar or vocabulary, but my accent.
I believe it’s never too late to improve your accent, so I decided to work on it. That turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
At the time, I didn’t have interactive flashcards, multimedia drills or any of the tools you’ll find in my English pronunciation course. All I had was a book and some recordings which I played over and over.
After a few weeks of working on my accent, I started to notice my improvement. I no longer had to repeat what I said, and I also found it easier to understand other people.
Having a good English accent has made a huge difference to my life and my professional career.
A few years ago I was asked to give an English pronunciation course.
When I was putting together the lessons for that course, I remembered how slow and difficult it had been for me to make progress, and I was sure it could be done much faster. That’s why I created the pronunciation lessons that I never had.
After teaching the course, I got great feedback from my students. I then decided to build the online version, which is the course you can play today on this site.
Basically, I’ve created the course I wish I’d had when I was working on my English accent.
