Rachel's English

Let me tell you about Rachel's English, one of the sites for learning English I have bumped into recently which really stands out.

Rachel's English is mainly about pronunciation, American English pronunciation, although we will also manage to develop our listening skills and vocabulary if we watch Rachel's videos regularly.

This is what Rachel says about herself and her site:

"Rachel has been working on Rachel's English for over 5 years.  Having taught ESL off and on since 1999, she became interested in developing a pronunciation-focused resource while living in Germany under the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship program in 2008.

Rachel's initial idea in developing Rachel's English was to make the kind of resource for self-study that she wished she could find for her own foreign language study.  As a classical singer, Rachel has spent much time immersed in singing in German, French, Italian, and Spanish.  She studied with highly acclaimed vocal teachers and coaches and brings a body of detailed knowledge connected to the voice, placement, and the musical nature of speech to her work as a pronunciation coach.

Rachel lives in New York City.  She was born and raised in Florida, went to college in Indiana where she studied Applied Math, Computer Science, and Music, and graduate school for Opera Performance in Boston. She loves being connected to people throughout the world through Rachel's English."
