Julie Sormark has worked for 38 years in the field of English education as a second language and has been training teachers for twenty seven years. She has published over 50 books in Korea, Japan and Taiwan. With her many years of teaching experience she developed a pronunciation method, Pronunciation Rhythm Control Method (PRCM), and hence, has been focusing her teachings on pronunciation for the last fifteen years. PRCM is a unique and dramatically effective teaching tool for instructors and students to improve their English pronunciation and listening skills. It is a method which teaches the rhythm of the English language as well as sounds that are particularly difficult for second language learners.
Throughout her professional career she has taught thousands of instructors on how to effectively teach English pronunciation to students. Currently, this teaching method is being used in Japan at the Peppy Kids Club. She continues to train teachers in Korea, Japan and Taiwan. The institutions which have implemented her method have become some of the most sought after programs as PRCM has proven its efficiency.
