AFP S3E02 – Idahosa Ness: Pronunciation Mastery

In today's episode I'm joined by Mimic Method founder: Idahosa Ness to talk about the importance of pronunciation when learning foreign languages. We also talk about how he developed a system for perfecting pronunciation.

Ask me anything!

I often get asked various questions, so I thought it would be good to start sharing some of the answers with the rest of the world. If you have a question about anything (really!) then fire away. Do notice that I'm not a bonafied expert language learner or polyglot. I'm just trying to do my best as the terrible student I am.

I'd be happy to answer any questions on language learning based on the experience I have from interviewing tons of people, who are way more talented than I am. You can ask your question using this link: Ask Kris a question

    Thanks for reminding me to exaggerate! I’m pretty much fluent in Swedish except for the intonation, and now that I think about it, it’s really because it subconsciously feels weird to do it correctly. Time to right the wrong 🙂
    I love Idahosa, he taught me basic phonetics, basically the most useful and transferable skill in polyglottery!!
