It’s an ELSA Day! :)

ELSA Pronunciation app ~ Google Play Store

To me, February has a lot to celebrate. Today is one of those important days. After lots of sleepless nights, ELSA Speak app is finally available on Google Play Store for beta testing.

As we build ELSA, we are working one step closer to our dream of equal opportunities for all. That in this flat and borderless world, English should never be a barrier that stops us reaching the fullest potential. That speaking should be joyful, not fearful. That all accents are accepted, as long as we can fully understand each other. That all biases regarding accents should be reduced / removed, and our real talent should speak for itself at the workplace.

New year resolutions for speaking better English (or ELSA’s guide to discover yourself and the world)

2015 has come to an end. New Year, as always, is the time for reflection: what you have achieved, and what what you have not yet. However, more importantly, New Year is the time for setting new goals – so that by the end of next year, you can look back and see whether you are getting closer to where you wanna be.

ELSA has had a wonderful year as I got the chance to meet and help so many people practice and be more confident when speaking English. And on this New Year occasion, I want to make my own resolution, too. That is, to help more and more people overcome the language barrier and let their voice be heard and cherished.

How about yours?

In case you want to speak better English in the next year, here are a few suggestions from ELSA.

Reduced Sounds – Why Americans speak so fast and swiftly

The most indicative thing about American English is that it usually sounds very relaxed. Each word is not pronounced clearly on its own but rather in correlation with other words within the sentence. That’s why you may find native Americans speak in a really fast and swift manner. This has a lot to do with Reduced Sounds. (Prefer to read this in Vietnamese?)

What are they?

In many cases, a word’s spelling may fail to tell you how it would actually sound. Take photograph and photography for an example.
