Recording natural speech is an efficient way to expose people’s mistakes. We record and transcribe speech and then through a series of subsequent sessions, specific errors are analysed and corrected so you slowly acquire the skill of correcting yourself. Voice files are made which you can transfer to your mobile, iPad, mp3 or computer for future self-study.
During tuition, grammar points, new vocabulary and exercises for self-study are recorded and then sent by e-mail to you within 24 hours. Self-study exercises can then be e-mailed back for correction, providing relevant input for future tuition.
There are many excellent podcasts available through iTunes and the BBC website to help you with listening and pronunciation. Guidance is provided on where to find the best of them, how to download and use effectively for your course and further study.
This is an exciting development for language learning although it is still quite basic in terms of recognising different accents and intonation. However, it is really useful for helping advanced learners with pronunciation and error correction. We respect the fact that it is not for everyone and it is entirely up to you whether to use it or not.
Despite the increased temptation to use technology in many aspects of our lives, tried and tested methods work best for most people. At Exclusive English, we love using pens and paper too!
Free writing is a very good way of relaxing with the new language whilst in your own space. Many people lack confidence to do this at the beginning, but after a little while they seem to enjoy the experience and are amazed at how quickly they improve and speed up. This technique enables the individual to see their own mistakes and thus later correct them as the tuition continues. This can be done by e-mail if preferred.
The choice of websites and apps is overwhelming, so we guide clients so that they can keep up-to-date with those of quality, since many can provide excellent support to supplement a course and be used for future self-study after a course. Help with downloading is provided.
The years I spent in London was a most lovely experience. Among the people I like to remember is Jacquie Sole with whom I did a pronunciation course…. — Lorraine Malenfant, View More
