If you’re going to spend thousands of dollars visiting a foreign country to learn English, study pronunciation first when you arrive! Many students do this and are happy to practice correct pronunciation while they visit Canada. Some students come to me to fix their pronunciation at the end of their trip. They have been in Toronto for 6 months or a year at ESL school, studying with a tutor or working. Then they study with me and greatly improve not just pronunciation but all of their language skills but if they had come to LANS at the beginning of their trip they could have practiced correct pronunciation during their whole stay in Toronto.

  • I took Sandra's LANS Pronounce and Speak Fluently Course where I learned English pronunciation patterns that I couldn’t learn in Japan....I corrected my English intonation and accent through practice reading. The medical practice reading was essential to my successful presentation at an International Medical Conference.

  • When I came to Toronto, I noticed that I did not have much opportunity to improve my speaking skill in English Language Program in UofT. Before I met you my speaking score in esl school was very bad. Then I met you and took the LANS course. You really helped me to improve my speaking skill, especially pronunciation. I got an A at school in speaking! I became able to say my name in English with confidence, tell my opinion to friends appropriately and ask questions to strangers on the road without hesitation. I think you really changed my life!

    Riko Tabuchi, Pharmacology Major

  • I looked forward to taking your class all the time. Your teaching was efficient. Before taking your class, I had a lot of problems in speaking and I didn’t know how to pronounce every word. But I understand it now! Thank-you for being patient and I will never forget the great time I had taking the LANS Pronunciation Fluency class.

After several lessons with you, I noticed that phone calls with clients became much easier and less stressful. People stopped complaining about my accent. I strongly recommend the LANS Pronunciation Course for anyone who wishes to improve his/her English speaking skills.

Frequently Asked Questions

Prior to my 17 years teaching pronunciation and developing LANS, I worked for over a decade as a radio broadcaster in Toronto, Canada, in the sound department for the Canadian television station CTV. as well as working for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and on independent feature films.

Using my professional background, my Bachelors Degree in Broadcasting from Ryerson University and my TESL certification, I began teaching English pronunciation to Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Russian and other students from around the world looking to master English. For almost two decades I have been listening, understanding and improving English pronunciation for students of all nationalities and disciplines.

I began to see patterns and re-occurring weaknesses in English pronunciation in the students I taught. After having successfully taught more than 1000 students to master English pronunciation I have developed a revolutionary method that greatly increases the speed of learning English by focusing on pronunciation weak points in innovative ways.

Are LANS Workshops better for me than simply hiring a tutor?
Tutors provide a valuable service in helping those already advanced in English pronunciation to hone their abilities. However, the LANS Method goes beyond simple repetition of what you already know and provides you with a framework for understanding new words, your own mistakes and how to self correct them.  LANS is ‘Pronunciation for Life’
Which is better for my improvement: skype workshops, in person workshops, or your e-Learning tutorials?
It is a matter of preference and convenience. Although many people prefer to take their workshops in person, I have students who complete their entire workshop via skype and they do very well. The e-Learning tutorials can be effectively used alone but to achieve the best results I would recommend using them in conjunction with the workshop of your choice.
What improvement can I expect and when will I notice changes?
Improvement should be fairly immediate. My students notice changes after the first class.  If students do their exercises daily, they improve quickly.
I have been living in an English speaking country for a long time. Why is English pronunciation so difficult?
English pronunciation is different from your native language.  And poor pronunciation habits are difficult to change. I have had 1000s of students from 20 to 60 years old who now have good English pronunciation because LANS Method works.
How is LANS method different from ESL?
ESL classes don’t focus on pronunciation and often confuse British with American accent.  The LANS method teaches clear North American accent and how it’s different from British accent.
Will my employer pay for LANS English Pronunciation Workshops?
Yes. Many employers will pay for professional development of their workforce on the principle that an employee who speaks English clearly is a more valuable employee. Better English pronunciation often better positions employees for promotion. LANS supplies the necessary receipts upon request.
What makes my English clear or unclear?
Many foreigners have learned English pronunciation incorrectly and repeat those mistakes. The LANS method first identifies these mistakes and then develops tailored and effective strategies for correcting them so students are quickly able to achieve clear English pronunciation.
