Imagine that you were introduced to an English-speaking friend and you knew exactly what words to say, and how to say them.
That would be amazing, right?
But we know that it's not that simple.
Building your skills and confidence to do this takes lots of practice and time.

It’s great to copy the natural sounds of a native speaker. It makes me more confident about my English. It also helps us to be more understandable to other people. And we can understand them better, because you get used to the accent.It definitely helps me with pronunciation because we get to know the exact pronunciation from native speakers. I’m also learning about intonation, expression, emotions, just by imitating. It’s the natural tendency of learning anything. Right from when we were born, we copy our parents. I think it’s the most effective way to learn speaking.
My skills have definitely improved! By watching these lessons and practicing I can see a huge, huge development in my pronunciation. Not only because you can practice and hear how spoken English works, but also these imitation lessons help you feel more confident and prepare yourself to speak English for real!
How does it work? What are the lessons like?
With different topics and different speakers, there is a lot to keep you busy!
Every lesson comes with a handy vocabulary list, so you can learn and practice phrases as they’re used naturally and in context.
Each lesson features a native English speaker telling a story.
You will learn to tell the same story yourself, using natural expression, intonation, stress, and rhythm.
First, you listen to the sounds and patterns of English exactly as they should sound, without needing to guess.
Then, you copy those sounds during pauses in the story, imitating the rhythm, expression, intonation and stress.
Finally, you are ready to practice by shadowing the native English speaker until you are ready to tell the story by yourself!

GET ALL OF THIS FOR JUST
Being confident in English can change your life.
Expressing yourself confidently is about so much more than just words.
How do we show someone we are sad or angry, interested, curious, affectionate or surprised? How can we recognise when someone else is expressing these things?
By adding stress, intonation, pause, tone and facial expression to the way we communicate, so the person we are speaking to understands the emotion behind our words. These things allow us to be human, to express who we are, what we think and what we feel.
This is exactly why I have developed the Imitation Technique for you; to help you express who they are and what they care about.
I want to create the chance for you to practice all of these important speaking skills together, at the same time, in a way that makes speaking English fun and natural.
I want to help you discover the confident English-speaking version of you.
