Núria Gavaldà – English Pronunciation Coach

Núria Gavaldà

Hello! I’m Núria Gavaldà, a phonetician and an English pronunciation coach. With me, you will be able to make that qualitative leap that your English needs.

About Núria Gavaldà

My training as a phonetician began after my degree in English philology at the University of Barcelona when I went to study a Master’s degree in phonetics at University College London. In that programme, I had the opportunity to train with great English phoneticians of worldwide reference. That year, I also got my Certificate of Proficiency in English Phonetics with the highest qualification.

Later on, I did my Ph.D. in forensic phonetics at Pompeu Fabra University, where I focused my research on further studying the phonetics of standard British English (SSBE), and also how to teach it to speakers of Spanish and Catalan as a first language.

In the last 15 years I have worked as a university lecturer in many universities, such as U. of Barcelona, U. Autónoma de Barcelona, U. Pompeu Fabra or U. Internacional de la Rioja. Currently, I am a full-time lecturer at Universitat de Barcelona.

In all these years, I have taught phonetics and phonology to undergraduate students, especially in Education and English philology departments, and also to graduate students of Ma programmes in English teaching and second language acquisition.

In addition, I have been working as a personal pronunciation coach for 10 years, and I have helped many people improve their English pronunciation and communicate effectively in their work and personal environments.

I have worked with many different people such as sports professionals, scientists, teachers, professionals in the pharmaceutical industry, actors, and computer scientists among many others.

I am also the creator of the Online English Pronunciation Course, a unique and pioneering course specially designed for speakers of Spanish and/or Catalan as a first language. Dozens of students have already improved their spoken English thanks to my course. More information here.
