I’ll train you to read phonetic transcriptions, and produce each sound that comprises modern received pronunciation. I’ll also teach you how to implement the correct use of intonation, stress, rhythm, connected speech, and much more. We’ll compare similar sounds, and look at tricky topics like the glottal stop and the dark L.
Technically, I need to mark this as an AD even though it is my own company so – AD 🙂

  1. I’m good is an Americanism and not really correct English ; I’m well is more appropriate.

    Good or bad more likely would refer to the behaviour of a child who might expect a treat if they had behaved well ( or had been good as opposed to bad ) .

  2. When somebody asks me how I am I always tell him terrible, When they ask why I tell them womenEvery time I see a good looking woman they say oh you're terrible. I've been using this line for well over 20 years I usually get a good laugh out of it

  3. My two favourites: wellllllllll that last incident with the shrink wrap was a little troubling but I’m feeling muuuuuch better now. : I,m so happy I can barely handle being around myself

  4. People usually say 'fair to middlin' where I live but my favorite answer is my Aunt Patsy who says 'If I was any better I'd be twins!' hahaha
