In this course, we will be focusing on all of the main, most priority sounds and aspects of speech that tend to be changed  when we take our linguistic  tendencies from Arabic and transfer them over to English.

Consonant Clusters
27:44

This concept is something that we call consonant clusters. So we're going to go into what that means. 

I know this might be more of a technical term or something that you have not heard of before.

American Prosody part 3 – Intonation Patterns
18:10

We're talking about aspects of language that no one ever talks about in the classroom. No more, rarely. These aren't classic or typical things that you'll see in other language learning curriculums, 

but it's so important because of pronunciation and how we use our voice, especially in prosody with this module.

Speech Analysis With Intonation
15:29

Please pay close attention to this video and watch the examples that we go through as many times, 

as you need to practice more these different aspects of speech yourself  because being able to analyze things on your own moving forward is  an essential part of feeling independent in your pronunciation and accent, uh, challenges moving forward.

Module 4: Bonus Sounds

The American R Sounds
28:15

This is a very common sound for non-native English speakers to struggle with. 

So we're going to go through the different American are sounds that exist  because they are not all the same so that you can understand them better  and know exactly how to practice them moving forward.
