Amazon Reviews Posted by Pronunciation Patterns Users

This item is useful for non-native speakers to check if they correctly pronounce English by looking at the pictures on the software. Also, you can record it to to hear if you pronounce English correctly, especially for the non-native speakers of English when they are too busy to go to the cram school or want to learn English on their own at home and so on. Furthermore, you can keep a CD forever to learn English at any time or prepare for the exams. More importantly, this will save your bucks for the tutoring and the tuition for the cram school. Moreover, I find its customer service is good if you ask for help. So, it is very good for self-studying English of the non-native speakers of English.
