Awesome!

Hey! I am from Austria and found this podcast more than helpful. I can only recommend it to everyone who really wants to dig into American pronunciation. The lessons are clear and make sense and you can find a transcript to every episode on their website.
The only thing that bothers me a little bit is that the first 5 or 6 episodes have been deleted… would be cool to fix that.

Very good and clear explanations

Until now I listened to about 50 Pronuncian lessons. They are really great!

Mandy explaines in a well structured and easily understandable way how the General American Accent is pronounced. Every sound is explained in detail. With very good examples you can practice every sound and also some linguistic background information is given.
Not only all sounds of American English are dealt with, also syllable stress, linking and pitch and intonation. For many language groups there exist special lessons where the native speakers of these languages can practice the things which are especially hard for them.

Even without subscribing to all extra lessons and material I learned a lot. I am thinking about subscribing to pronuncian to get even more information and possibility to practice.
