Hi, I’m your instructor Paul Gruber and welcome to the
Pronunciation WorkshopsFirst Training Session.
I am very excited that you have taken this first step to improve your
English pronunciation and I do hope that you would enjoy this

shape of your lips. These small changes are going to make very big
changes in your speech. We’re going to practising and I recommend
that you use the training manual and try to practise often. When you
practise, I recomm
