● a course book that explains exactly how to form the difficult sounds of English and teaches you correct tongue placement. Exercises make this more comfortable and natural for you.● videos that features actual students executing correct mouth sounds. Through Cameron’s innovative use of hand movements to demonstrate tongue position, you too will be able to find the precise pronunciation.● audio recordings that feature exercises and correct pronunciation for ear training.
