English pronunciation courses developed by California Accent are designed to be taught with a smart phone using a speech recognition app. This technique is used to confirm proper pronunciation. Note that most of these apps are designed to recognize American English with a neutral accent which is sometimes called a "California accent". Many of these apps are available for free and Thai students may already have one on their own phones.
· Lessons in this curriculum series usually cover 20 target words.
· The teacher will ask each student to pronounce the target words correctly enough for a speech recognition app to recognize.
