Review by: Karen on December 2, 2014
A new approach to the "difficult /r/" I wish this was taught in graduate school! I'm glad I'm not the only one that has struggled through the years with some students and correcting this sound. I think you make it look easier than it really is once you get started and begin working on carryover. Thanks for the enlightening information. Some of the screens at the end of the seminar regarding the Levels could use more bolding/highlighting and bullet points to make them more easily understood-I got a little confused here.
