Join PIRF and You Will Get:


Fresh Assignments

Every week you will receive a new assignment. It might be a dialog or part of an interview or part of a book/ magazine/newspaper. It will always be new! Read the assignment and when you think you are ready, record yourself reading it. If you want, you can send your MP3 files to me! Each week I will choose several students' MP3 files and put them in my lesson. Those lucky students (different every week!) also get something very special. More on that later^^

The Pronunciation Lesson

I will focus on teaching you standard American pronunciation. There are SO many "styles" of English all around the world, but if you can master standard American pronunciation, people will be able to understand you nearly everywhere! Why? Hollywood!! Most successful movies, TV shows and pop songs use standard American pronunciation. Even British stars like Hugh Laurie and Craig David use it. Aussie stars like Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe use it. And so should you!! And I'll be your coach!

The Intonation Lesson

You will learn WHICH WORDS to emphasize; which words and phrases are important; which words to accent; which words to enunciate! And, most importantly, you will learn WHY we do that. By changing the intonation of a sentence, you can actually change the meaning of the sentence. If you ever have questions--Coach Shane will always be ready to answer them for you!

The Rhythm Lesson

You will learn how to GROUP WORDS TOGETHER! When to PAUSE! This is SO important in speaking. If you know when to pause, it is so much easier to speak AND to understand. They say English is spoken like a song--that's true, BUT don't make it a crazy song or a robot song! When learning the rhythm, you must also consider the intonation--and Coach Shane will help you find that connection every time!

The Flow Lesson

How fast or slow should you speak?!! This is a HUGE question that I get asked all the time. The answer-- it depends! Once again, "speed" is related to the "feeling/emotion/message" of the words. If you don't really understand something but you don't want to sound "stupid" you say "Okay" slowly. But if you do understand, you usually say it quickly! That is a simple example--and you will learn SO MANY MORE in PIRF!

Weekly Bonus

Each week I'll choose several students' MP3 files and include them in my lesson. And for those students, I will give them personalized coaching, too!! I will explain what their biggest problems are, what they need to focus on, how they can really improve! And all of that for no extra cost.
