Clean and clear English speaking is important for your confidence

If you’re feeling held back by the challenges of speaking correctly, we need to talk!


You see, learning the sounds of English is detailed. There are simply SO MANY sounds, just like there are so many spices in my spice rack.


And if you know anything about me, it is that I love to cook almost as much as I love to talk, sing, and work with my clients.

Sometimes I take time to prepare paella.

If you are cooking a great paella, you need all the ingredients.

Let’s just say we ran out of saffron. Sure, we could add cumin instead  but the dish would lack the precise flavour it needs. The rich and decadent flavour that saffron brings which makes paella- paella.

And if your English pronunciation has something incorrect that you just can’t put your finger on, it pays to check that the right sounds have been used correctly. Today you learned that one ingredient is correct English plosive consonants.

In my next tutorial I can’t wait to show you the next ingredient to add to the mix, so if you enjoyed this vlog today make sure you join our email list & also subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss the next part of this consonant series. You can also get extra tips for your communication over on our FB youtube channel and instagram.
