Where other accent reduction/English pronunciation products rely on solely mimicking of audio sounds, this work focuses visually, audibly, and narratively on the physical ability to speak English, noting that many sounds of English may be difficult for the non-native English speaker because some tongue positions used in English may not be used in other languages. The 45-minute DVD introduces mouth and jaw exercises to prepare for English pronunciation, then demonstrates mouth formations and tongue placement using other nonnative speakers. The CDs feature audio exercises and correct pronunciations for ear training. Seeing and hearing how English sounds teaches how to become more and more comfortable conversing with native English speakers as the program progresses."@en ;
