Hey guys! It is Aiko with Schwagirl. I am an American English pronunciation coach.

Episode 2 has two segments: guest interview and answering a pronunciation question.

I invited a popular blogger from Hawaii. Her name is Megumi.

She has blogs, is a mom, a college student and a property manager. And she has been in Hawaii for three years. Listen to her and learn how important “outputting” is important when it comes to improving English. She is starting an online English salon (community) for Japanese people who would like to learn English. She is providing a place for Japanese to output! If you are interested in her community, check out this episode. Members are in Japan and also in the US. You can meet people from different places! I was invited as an advisor, so I will see you there if you join. She will accept up to 30 people for her community at first and it starts on July 1st. Contact her through twitter asap if you are interested!

In the second segment, I am answering a question from Hirari how to pronounce L in “health” or “all right”. If you have any questions regarding English learning or pronunciation or living in the US, please contact me through the contact page http://schwagirl.com/contact/


Let’s motivate each other and have fun when we speak English!
