Excellent course! I have learned a lot of new things on how to improve American pronunciation. The presentation slides are well created and demonstrate how to produce certain sounds.
The only thing that I would suggest for this course is to remove peers' assignments tasks due to their futility and even being demotivating. I am strongly sure that pronunciation should be evaluated only by experts rather than by those who have just started learning pronunciation. So, I suggest that The American Pronunciation remove the peers' pronunciation task as being inappropriate for this course.

I really enjoyed this course. It was fun and brought a lot of interesting new information on the table and made me aware of my weaknesses that I still have even though I speak English nearly fluently. But there are still bits and bobs that I can tweak around to become much better in pronounciation. Very helpful, very useful and I happily recommend the course to anyone who wants to improve their already good English skills to the next level.

The course gets you familiarized with basic vowel & consonant pronunciations, music of English language and some conversational skills. Overall good course for a beginner learner.

The course is great but i don't like the grading method.
I think one of the teachers should do the gradings.

Everything is nearly perfect, except I do not prefer peer-to-peer reviewed assignments.

I first enrolled because during the unusual times that we are all experiencing, thought it was a good idea to work on my accent and take this course FOR FREE as it's advertised, unless I CHOOSE to pay the certification. The videos are useful, but you can't expect for anyone to pay £60 for doing some assignments that are being checked by people that has no experience in the language. What are you charging me for? I will unroll, as unfortunately is bad advertised and I can't continue unless I pay you, for nothing.
I have to copleted my course and graded quiz passed with 90%but not giving my certificate

EXCELENTE CURSO ME SIENTO MUY FELIZ PORQUE APRENDI MUCHO, ES UN BUEN SISTEMA DE APRENDIZAJE QUE A NIVEL DE ECUADOR NO LO APLICAN. EXCELENTES DOCENTES CON DIDACTICA PARA ENSEÑAR ME GUSTARIA SEGUIR APRENDIENDO PRACTICANDO Y MEJORANDO YA QUE MI META ES PODER COMPARTIRLO CON LAS ZONAS RURALES DE MI PAIS. PORQUE PROVENGO DEL CAMPO Y AHORA QUE APRENDI UNA BASE PUEDO COMPARTIR ESOS CONOCIMIENTOS CON LA GENTE. QUISIERA QUE ME FACILITARAN CORREO DONDE PUEDA MANDAR LAS EVIDENCIAS DE LOS CURSOS QUE EN LA ZONA RURAL IMPARTIRE COMPARTIENDO LO QUE USTEDES ME HAN ENSEñADO EN ESTE CURSO. QUISIERA SEGUIR APRENDIENDO EN OTRO CURSOS DE ESTA AREA SEGUIR FORTALECIENDO LA PRONUNCIATIONS E IDENTIIFCAR LOS SONIDOS CORRECTAMENTE. FUE UN POCO DURO PORQUE ESTABA EN PROCESO DE CLASES DE ESTUDIOS PERO HA SIDO DE GRAN AYUDA. FELICITACIONES A USTED Y ESPERO PREPARARME Y LLEGAR A SER ACREEDOR DE UNA BECA . MIL GRACIAS, GRACIAS POR SU APOYO EN ESTE CURSO DE AYUDA ECONOMICA. ESPERO QUE SEA CONSIDERADO PARA OTROS CURSO DE IDIOMAS SI E SPOSIBLE ESTA SEGUNDA FASE

Really a wonderful course and I picked up few interesting things like how helpful an innocuous looking technique of "shadowing a speech" can be, connected speech nuances, musicality element of speech, prosodic components etc etc.
MCQ assignments were really complementing the course content coverage and really brought in some challenging set of questions. At the same time though i felt some where those audio assignments were a tad easy to do, but no complaints about the overall content. This is my 4th course with UCI and I must say they have a wonderfulllllllll team and above all COURSERA I love you a lot..... May all success come to Coursera all the time...

Tricky American English Pronunciation course is worth both its theoretical and practical sides. Shadowing a conversation method is a great way to improve English Pronunciation, speaking skills, linking, reduction, intonation etc. Thanks a lot to Tricky American English Pronunciation teachers and team!Tricky American English Pronunciation course is worth both its theoretical and practical sides.

Cordial saludo. Agradezco a Coursera por la oportunidad para lograr finalizar este curso tan importante para obtener la adecuada pronunciación del inglés americano en la universidad de California Irvine. El curso me pareció muy amigable, exigente, con excelentes tareas y actividades que me motivaron a desarrollar día a día y finalizarlo con éxito. Los felicito por tan importante gestión.
Ahora me encantaría saber, para más o menos cuando podría contar con la certificación, la cual me es muy importante para mi desempeño laboral. Muchas gracias nuevamente y quedo atenta por su respuesta.

Linguistics, languages are very interesting, but I am a chemistry teacher, a little different thinking, in each new knowledge I find a certain structure, I had to change myself somewhere in pronunciation, perception of words by ear, I really liked the course. I discovered a lot of new things for myself, my attitude to the English language changed, and I began to listen to the pronunciation of words better. Thank you very much, I'm thinking of going back to language courses!

One of the best courses to learn about American English Pronunciation. The course syllabus was managed in a certain way that will set you up on a path of your own if you want to learn more about pronunciation after you complete this course. I didn't feel bored for a single moment while listening to videos and the instructors have dumbed down the lessons so it's easy to grasp for anyone. I am really thankful to everyone related to this course and especially the instructors.

O curso é excelente para quem está começando a estudar a língua inglesa ou precisa aprimorar suas habilidades linguísticas, principalmente sobre compreensão, escuta e pronúncia de palavras ou estruturas mais complicadas da língua. Quem fizer este curso, ganhará tempo no entendimento de vários conceitos que muitos livros tentam explicar apenas por meio da gramática. Estou muito feliz por ter concluído este curso e recomendo a todos!...

I find this course really helpful. It explains the nuances of pronunciation sounds very effectively. I have certainly gained more knowledge on American English pronunciation thanks to this course. I especially like shadowing exercises. For an ESL learner like me, it is a good way to introduce intonation with this type of exercise. All aspects of pronunciation including stress, intonation,... are covered well
English is my working language as well as language for communication. This course gave me the feeling of confidence, that actually my English isn't horrible as I underestimated.
But mostly, I recognized where exactly I have problems and gave me the ways how to handle it!
I appreciate all instructors; the recommendations from non-native/and native American speakers are useful!

El curso es muy bueno, pero aparece como gratuito en caso de no queres certificado, y terminando la primer semana me solicita pagar para poder continuar. No puedo continuar el curso si no pago para el certificado, cuando al momento de inscribirme lo habia hecho sin solicitar certificado. Como puedo continuarlo sin pagar? o deberian aclarar esto de entrada!

This course is very comprehensive and complete; the explanations are clear and there are exercises to practice listening and some to practice production. It's great considering it's a multilevel course. My only note is that I wish there had been some more listening exercises to practice, because there is so much content. But other than that, great!

It's an amazing course for those who aren't English Native Speakers.
After completing this course, I started feeling more confident and enthusiastic to learn more and more.
My Special Thanks to the team UCI making me so confident.
My sincere thanks to COURSERA for providing me such a wonderful platform.

Soy hablante del idioma español y este curso me sirvió bastante, si nunca haz tenido una referencia de que tan buena es tu pronunciación o hablado con hablantes de ingles nativos, te recomiendo tomar este curso. Si hablas bien se te hará fácil y te certificarás, sino, vas a aprender tips muy útiles y de igual manera te certificarás.

It's a great course. It's more focused on learning and practice rather than making someone to be eligible for the course. This is unique and compulsory course for the ones who wish to speak and to understand American English. The teachers are really talented and made the program based on the learners requirement. Thank you teachers.
