General Questions

What is the ELAN Community?

The ELAN community site is a closed social network for ELANers only. You can meet here to discuss what you have learned in the courses and more! This is a safe and supportive space where you can meet other ELANers and practise your English without fear of making a mistake in English or discrimination from others.

There are lots of live events for community members to get involved with. These live events are conversation classes, live-streamed lessons, and a drop-in Zoom with a teacher.

Can I study with these courses using my mobile phone or tablet?

Yes, but the experience may not be the same. ELAN recommends that you use a laptop or desktop when possible.

Yes! All video subtitles can be accessed by clicking on the icon. You will need to do this each time you view a video.

Pronunciation Course Questions

What’s the difference between the subscriptions plans?

The only difference is the length of time you have access to the course.  All subscription plans offer instant access to the entire course for you to work through at your own pace. You just have to choose how long you want to spend working on your new skill.

What is included in the course, is it just videos?

No, it’s not just videos. This is a fully comprehensive course designed to ensure student success with a mixture of interactive quizzes, video lessons, over 5000+ audios, images, pdf downloads, and lifetime access to an exclusive Facebook group.

Who is this course for?

Anyone who wants to improve their communication skills.  Current students come from a wide range of backgrounds and professions.  Both native and non-native speakers.

How long will the course take?

There isn’t a clear answer to this question because it depends on you, the student.  We have a saying “Rome wasn’t built in a day” this means that it takes time to build great things. 

Technically you could get through the entire course in a week, but if you want to master this new skill then it takes time and regular practice.  On average, students use the course resources for between 3 – 6 months, but it truly is a personal journey.  

Remember, you can always start small (weekly) and switch your subscription plan later if you wish. 

I want to keep my accent but I'd like to speak more clearly, can you help?

There are over 40 different dialects in the British Isles alone and many international varieties of English.  Accent is an important part of a person’s identity and no-one should feel the need to lose their accents.  Clarity of speech however should be encouraged and can be achieved while retaining your unique sound.  The pronunciation course teaches the general sounds of British English (RP), many of which will be sounds found in regional accents as well.  The course also provides many exercises to encourage clear speech in general.  Therefore, this course can be useful to all speakers regardless of accent.
