Former Participants Say
And Stella another top professional. Now I feel that I know what it is and that I can manage a Pronunciation Lab on my own, ICT tools and the use of PRAAT to work with intonation. I’m very happy about having been part of this. Incredible course mates as well. They have great ideas too. Thanks so much for everything!!
