Do-it-yourself pronunciation improvement for the "academically privileged"

In a recent post I commented on "English (pronunciation) for the academically privileged," in part focusing on the apparent "hyper-mentalizing" necessary to participate in many such programs. The linked website above, purporting to have the "blueprint" for do-it-yourself-ing it, even has this line at the outset: "If you’ve had trouble with your English pronunciation, this message will be the most important thing you will ever read." Wow. Have no idea if "it" works--although I have my suspicions--but it is certainly an entertaining read, filled with "EAP" hyper-language and "hyper-claims." Enjoy!
