All we know what flashcards are (if you don’t, read this), but the number of people who know how to effectively learn with them is much smaller. So let’s have a look on some points.
Although the recipe for success is relatively easy, not everyone might be determined enough. The good news is that virtually everyone may reduce their non-native accent after a month. And that without leaving home.

- English sounds are different than sounds in your language
- the English language has its own melody
- the pronunciation of the entire sentence differs from the pronunciation of words said separately
