New website helps new English speakers Enunciate Better

Brock University linguistics professor Ron Thomson created a free site to help new Canadians with pronouncing English. “The focus of these tools is to help non-English speakers better hear differences between different English sounds”, he says. Job candidates who are able to be understood very clearly in English with a softer accent, can find the job search easier than others. Thomson’s English Accent Coach is a free website, or mobilphiles can pay $1.99 for the app.
