What is the Pronunciation Diagnostics Test?
It’s a comprehensive assessment of your Spanish accent.
It is essential to book it before purchasing pronunciation classes.
Alexandra will listen to you in different contexts to evaluate your oral communication in general, and your pronunciation in particular. During the test, you will do listening, reading, and speaking hands-on activities (guided and not guided). Afterwards, you will receive your personal assessment in PDF format listing your strengths and weaknesses, i.e., the elements of the Spanish pronunciation that you have already mastered as well as those that you produce similarly to your mother tongue. In addition, together, we will create an action plan to correct or improve them.
Pronunciation diagnosis is for you if...
You have been learning Spanish for a long time but your foreign accent is too noticeable and you would like to improve it once and for all.
You love the Spanish language, traveling to Spanish-speaking countries from time to time, and would like to perfect your pronunciation to sound as natural as possible.
It annoys you when sometimes you are not understood and natives ask you many times "Excuse me, can you repeat?"
You have only been learning Spanish for a short time, but you are aware of the importance of pronunciation for effective oral communication, and you want to know what aspects to work on to have a clear pronunciation.
You need to make oral presentations in Spanish and you want your accent to sound as non-foreign as possible.
If you identify with any of these points, the first step you need to take
is to book your PDT (Pronunciation Diagnostic TEST!)
Why choose the PDT?
Because it is the only complete pronunciation diagnostic test on the market.
Because Alexandra is a specialist. She has been totally focused on Spanish pronunciation for more than 6 years.
Because you receive a personalized ACTION PLAN that shows you how to improve.

As an intermediate student, I struggled with being understood in conversation. When I started working with Alexandra, I came to not only understand how to correctly pronounce letters, but how to form sentences with correct inflection so that people can understand whether I am asking a question or making a statement. I now can see differences between the English and Spanish languages that I was not aware of before, and can adjust the flow of my Spanish to sound more natural. Alexandra is an encouraging and supportive teacher, and her lessons are always enjoyable.

I started studying with Alexandra because sometimes native speakers didn't understand me very well because of my accent. I could not pronounce some sounds correctly (especially "r"), nor could I manage rhythm or intonation. My two "highlights" have been understanding the mechanism to pronounce the ERRES and how to connect the words so that they do not sound one by one as in my native language, but linked as in Spanish. Thanks to this I have been able to better serve the Spanish-speaking elders in my city as a volunteer in my church.

Hi! I'm Tereza and I contacted Alexandra because I was too embarrassed to speak in Spanish, and that didn't allow me to evolve, nor to achieve my personal and professional goals. With Alexandra's help I have learned a lot about the vocal apparatus, about the formation of sounds and about how natives speak. I am even preparing a presentation in Spanish and I am going to face a Spanish audience, something I would never have imagined. If you are looking for someone professional and who will help you achieve your goals, look no further because Alexandra is the perfect person and I recommend her 100%.
