What are you going to learn?

Speak English with confidence ✔

It doesn't matter how much grammar and vocabulary you know, if you are not confident when speaking English, you will get stuck. Confidence is key. 

Understand native speakers in fast conversation ✔️

When you understand the sounds of English, you will understand native speakers. Fast conversations will sound like natural, relaxed dialogue.

Learn more English in less time ✔️

An in depth knowledge of pronunciation helps you memorize vocabulary and internalize grammar structures dramatically faster.

Speak with an impressive accent ✔️

Some students simply want to be understood. Not our students.
If you want to connect with native speakers, make friends and have better opportunities, good pronunciation is fundamental.

Limited spaces

Because we give personal feedback and attention to each of our students, we can only accept a limited number of students at a time. To guarantee your space in the program, sign up before 01/2019.

Why Inglês Nu E Cru

Personalized for you 🙏

Most English courses are made by big corporations. We are a small team of language lovers and only care about sharing our knowledge to help you achieve your goals with English.

Learn when you want, where you want 🙌

We get it, you're busy. Sound School is completely adapted for mobile, tablets and computers. You can also download all of the audios so you can learn whenever and wherever you want.

Part of the family ♥️

We believe that every student is different. No more traditional classrooms. No more apps. Only real humans helping you speak English. Here, you are part of the family.


Professional, Native Professor 🇺🇸
Unfortunately, it is difficult to find professional native teachers in Brazil. Foster, the program director, has 10 years of experience teaching English and specializes in teaching pronunciation to Brazilians.

A different approach 💪🏻

Let's face it. The traditional approach to teaching English in Brazil is old and ineffective. No more boring grammar books and large classrooms. Learn English that natural way.

When you understand the sound system of English, you will learn faster, understand native speakers in fast conversation, and speak with confidence.

Who is Inglês Nu E Cru?

We are a small (but growing team) of language lovers. We are dedicated to changing the way English is taught in Brazil.

Foster Hodge

Foster is the language nerd. He stays up late studying linguistics and has taught English to more than 5,000 Brazilians students. He will be your guide during the course.

Alexia Souza

Alexia takes care of our students. If you have any questions about the course, English, or why we have so many dogs. Alexia is always available to help you out.

Our students love us ♥️

"Foster is an excellent teacher and a friend. If you want to learn and correct & increase your pronunciation, "Foster is an excellent teacher and a friend. He is 100% the right person for the task.
Rodrigo Berutti, Gerente @Reserva

Totoro, Ator Porta dos Fundos
"Foster is a great teacher, every week how my spoken English is better, mainly my pronunciation. Before Foster, I thought that I was speaking in the right way, but I wasn't. Now I feel that I can speak like a a native."
Luiz Lima, Médico

We are trusted by the best in the biz

FAQ

What is included in Sound School?

Sound School 3.0 gives you all of the tools and resources you need to be a confident English speaker. 

Included with the program:
  • 50 high-quality video-classes ✔️
  • Personal feedback after each lesson with the program director ✔️
  • 100's of audios to train your pronunciation, listening, and conversation ✔️
  • Exclusive bonus material and lectures on intonation, rhythm, and stress ✔️

How do I know if Sound School is the right course for me?

Sound School is designed for intermediate and advanced speakers that can read or relatively well in English, but are not confident in their speaking abilities.

If you "know" a lot of English, but still have difficulties speaking, this is the course for you. If you have difficulties understanding native speakers in conversations, Sound School is a great fit.

If you like our podcast, Inglês Nu E Cru Rádio, Sound School is designed for you.

Do I have to pay monthly fees?

Nope! Just a simple one time payment ☺️

Does the course work on mobile devices?

Yep! Sound School is 100% compatible on all devices. That means you can learn anytime, anywhere :) You can even download all of the audios to save data!

What makes Sound School Different than other English courses?

This is not your English course. We do not focus on grammar, reading or writing. Only pronunciation, listening, and speaking. 

Other benefits of Sound School that traditional language schools don't offer:
  • Personal feedback after each section.
  • In-depth pronunciation and phonetics training.
  • Native teachers with years of experience teacher Brazilians.
  • World-class support. If you need anything, we are here for you.

What are the personal feedback sessions?

After each lesson, you will have the opportunity to record an audio and receive personal audio feedback directly from the Program Director (Foster). This will dramatically increase your ability to perceive and fix your mistakes.

Can't I learn this on YouTube for free?

Of course. You can learn almost anything for free on the Internet nowadays. But why spend hours (years, really) learning the fundamentals and keys to speaking confident English when we apply our decades of teaching English to Brazilians? Additionally, we offer you personal feedback and precise corrections so you will speak fluently in record time.

I am a beginner. Can I take Sound School?

90% of the materials in Sound School are in English. So, you need to have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of English. If you can understand a good bit of English conversations, then you will be fine. If you are a complete beginner, we will release a new course designed especially for you later this year :)

I am already an advanced speaker. Will Sound School help me?

Great question. Yes! Even the most advanced speakers still tend to have a lack of phonetic training. Sound School is a unique opportunity to improve you accent, speak more like a native speaker, and develop a more profound knowledge of the spoken English language.
