Amazon Reviews Posted by Pronunciation Patterns Users

Months ago I was thinking to have a CD to improve my daughter pronunciation, she is a hearing impaired 7th grader. I found two of them, one is called ECS and the other one is this. My daughter tried both, she likes this very much just because:

1. It can systemmatically teach her pronunciation, practice sinlge sound, word and sentence.
2. Setup her own pace to learn, review and practice.
3. Recording your own voice to find out the difference in between
4. Much more rich functions and useful links to play if you want to be an advanced user.

since she's been practiced with PP, she is very seldom to request a audiologist to correct her pronunciation. That all be great if we could spot this software early. Plus the service is excellent, promptly and helpful.
I think it's the best so far on the market and strongly recommend it especially for those hearing impaired kids to pratice total English at school.
