  • Does this course teach me everything I need to improve my pronunciation?

    Not everything. This is a ‘taster’ course that will help you: listen for syllables, listen for rhymes, and listen out for ‘R’ and ‘L’. It will show you some other great strategies for improving your pronunciation. We offer several other courses if you’re interested in continuing to practice and improve.

  • Do I get a completion certificate?

    Not with this free course, HOWEVER, you do receive a completion certificate with all of the paid courses.

  • Do I get access to the instructors or Artikul8’s founder in this course?

    As this is a complimentary course (with some great strategies!) you do not get access to instructors or the founder. This is a taster course. All of our paid courses give you access to live group calls where you can ask questions as well as interact with other students and instructors.
