You’ll also learn some key related topics in English pronunciation, like syllable length and placement. The live classes each involve a lecture by Rachel and a Question and Answer session. In each class, some students will be picked at random, with their consent, to receive live coaching and feedback from Rachel (Rachel will turn on their webcams). Each week, you will be given study material to prepare for the lecture in advance. This will include text and videos.
