About the course

Everybody makes pronunciation mistakes at any level, Elementary, Intermediate or Advanced, anyway, you've got some fossilized errors in this area. They just cling to you and then you are just stuck with them for a really long time. This is more of a practice medium than a real course. Its structure is easy to grasp for any level as well. Enjoy and hope, it'll be useful!

So let's have a look at the most common mistakes and errors which I have collected from my students of Elementary through Advanced levels. They are typical of the people whose 1st language is Russian.
