Brief course description
Nothing is more frustrating than not being understood! You know the words, you’ve studied the grammar, but people still can’t understand you. Why? Your vowel sounds. Vowel sounds are the breath and soul of a language, and if you don’t get them right, you will not be understood. It’s that simple.
But once you master the American vowel sounds, your English will skyrocket! People will understand you more, your confidence will increase, and — surprisingly — you will also understand other people much better. Your ability to make the correct sounds will greatly improve your ability to hear them when others speak.
This course is designed for intermediate and advanced learners of English, but an ambitious beginner will also greatly benefit and get started on the right foot. Sound and meaning are integrated in a language, so it is extremely important to get your pronunciation right. Let Vowel Power® show you how.

Liam Quirk bio
With over 30 years experience teaching ESL to students from around the world, I developed a system, a course, for teaching the pronunciation of American English. Tested on students from China, Italy, France, Spain, Russia, Ukraine and more, this system works. I currently teach English at Rider University in New Jersey, and in the summer I teach ESL to international students. An avid language learner, I long ago understood the connections between pronunciation, comprehension, confidence and speaking fluency, and this course reflects that.
