Pronunciation Challenges by Language

Do you ever wish you knew EXACTLY what you should focus on in English that would make the biggest difference in your pronunciation and clarity?

Look no further! I have created videos and resources for pronunciation challenges in English for speakers of 8 different languages!

Each video breaks down and explains the specific challenges that speakers of these languages may face when it comes to speaking English. But more than that – you’ll learn how to overcome them and become a more confident and clear speaker of English.

Pronunciation challenges for ARABIC speakers

Pronunciation challenges for BRAZILIAN PORTUGUESE speakers​

Pronunciation challenges for CHINESE speakers

Pronunciation challenges for HINDI-URDU speakers

Pronunciation challenges for SPANISH speakers​

Pronunciation challenges for JAPANESE speakers​

Pronunciation challenges for RUSSIAN speakers

Don’t speak any of these languages? I bet that as a non-native speaker of English you can still find at least one challenge that is relevant to you 🙂 Let me know what it is in the comments below!
