“Upon discovering Color Vowel, I was never able to “unhear” it. In a world in which we depend so much on technology for answers, it is liberating to have a mental tool which instantly aids in mastering the sounds of English.”
Mariah Schuemann
Mariah Schuemann, University of Miami (FL)
“The Color Vowel Chart provides an anchor that lets students produce and make sense of sounds even when they're not able to fully, consciously explain a certain pronunciation. It's a thread that I've carried through my teaching career since 2008 and it just works.”
Megan Calvert
Megan Calvert, Montgomery College (MD)
“The Color Vowel Chart makes it easy to remember the essential English vowels and helps us notice how to shape our mouth and jaw to produce the sounds of English.”
Nao Matsuda
Nao Matsuda, Blue Canoe Pronunciation Trainer (Japan)
“Color Vowel lifts the lid on the secrets of spoken English and gives learners clear, understandable, and effective tools for rapid improvement. It's simple, powerful, and approachable way to tackle some of the hardest aspects of teaching English.”
Laura McIndoo
Laura McIndoo, Central New Mexico Community College (NM)
“For me, the concept of long and short vowels never really worked. The Color Vowel Approach gives me a set of accurate, non-technical vocabulary with which I can use to communicate with my students in a way that accesses multiple parts of their brain in order for them to perceive sounds that are not in their native language.”
Samantha Parkes
Samantha Parkes, US State Department Specialist
“The Color Vowel Chart is deeper than it looks. The more phonological awareness a teacher has, the more that teacher can help learners develop their own phonological awareness.”
Ginessa Payne
Ginessa Payne, Center for Teaching Excellence, Texas A&M University (TX)
“The Color Vowel Approach enables me to fine-tune individual and group instruction because I have a way of assessing their language needs better. It helps learners to access vocabulary with greater precision. ”
Kristyl Boies
Kristyl Boies, K-12 Specialist, Steamboat Springs Public Schools (CO)
“By providing us with a vocabulary to talk with students about sounds in English, the Color Vowel Chart opens the doors to examining all of the most important aspects of English, including stress, intonation, spelling, irregular verbs, and lexical chunks.”
Rebecca Wilner
Rebecca Wilner, American University and DC Public Schools (DC)
“The Color Vowel Approach is a ground-breaking way to learn vocabulary by focusing on stressed vowel sounds. Understanding that is key to developing an accessible, working vocabulary.”
Skip Gole
Robert Gole, Montgomery County Public Schools (MD)
“I love the Color Vowel Approach because it is compelling, accessible, and based in the science of learning according to how we process language in the brain. It gives learners a tangible system to hear the sounds of English through tools that help them overcome interference with their L1 in a fun and engaging way.”
Chelsea Olsen
Chelsea Olsen, VIPKid Tutor (MI)
“The beauty of Color Vowel is that it makes conversations about prosody and pronunciation accessible to learners of any age and any level.”
Jennifer Campion
Jennifer Campion, ELTS Master Trainer (VA)
“Blue Canoe and its Color Vowel methodology is brilliant and incredibly effective with my students. I’ve been teaching English to Japanese students for more than a decade, and had never imagined a pronunciation approach could be this good.”
William Keith
William Keith, Managing Director of Keith Industries, Tokyo, Japan
“We saw that teachers love using the Color Vowel Chart, so Intercambio now includes it in all curriculum we produce. For many English learners here, the CVC has led to life-changing breakthroughs around pronunciation! ”
Lee Shainis
Lee Shainis, Founder • Intercambio Uniting Communities • Boulder (CO)
“The Color Vowel System is such a fundamentally innovative and effective methodology that we built our company, Blue Canoe Learning, on it. Now anyone with a smart phone can play the Blue Canoe app and leverage the Color Vowel System to improve their English pronunciation. We are making such a wonderful impact on people’s lives, and ELTS and Color Vowel are an integral part of why we are successful!”
Sarah Daniels
Sarah Daniels, CEO of Blue Canoe
“I find the way the elements of your training sessions weave themselves together genuinely elegant. It isn't just a "bag of tricks to deal with different problems" … there’s a sense of integrality and completeness in what you have developed overall.”
Brock Brady
Brock Brady, U.S. Peace Corps Specialist (Washington DC)
“I can't thank you enough for an amazing experience at Color Vowel Basics. The Color Vowel Approach provides the strategy and structure I was looking for on behalf of my students. The work you have done is truly remarkable. It's true that simplicity lies at the far side of complexity.”
Amy Reavey
Amy Reavey, Literacy Volunteer (NJ)
“I love using the Color Vowel Chart because it works! Student feedback on the system is so positive. I have students who tell me how helpful it has been not only for pronunciation, but also for spelling, specifically for students for whom the Roman alphabet is new. English spelling and pronunciation is challenging, and I am so thankful to have this resource!”
Vanessa S.
Vanessa S. ESL Teacher, WA
“I don’t think I’ve ever been with a more skillful presenter [in Karen Taylor]. It was like watching a high-wire artist, but with NO misgivings: you know she’s totally secure up there. We were in the palm of her hand!”
Laurel Pollard
Laurel Pollard, Author of "Zero Prep" and "Wow!"
“Interesting, fun, and I met people I look forward to keeping in touch with. So many 'Ah ha!' moments. Loved it.”

“The Color Vowel Chart allows my actor, broadcaster and executive clients to instantly see the color of the sound they are mispronouncing or mixing. The visual cuing speeds up the recognition time of the sounds! I think the Color Vowel Chart is the most brilliant thing I have ever seen. It has really changed the way we work at the Speech and Accent Academy!”
Lisa Jeffery
Lisa Jeffery, Director, The Speech and Accent Academy (FL)
“Who doesn’t love card games? My middle school students find Color it out! extremely engaging and I find it a powerful tool to introduce and review complicated sounds and spellings in English. In fact, I used Color it out! to introduce my students to the Color Vowel Chart before ever "teaching" them about it. I found it a very natural point of entry for the Chart. Since then, we have been exploring additional ways to use the Color it out! cards, such as Dominoes and Go Fish. A fantastic, fun, and very powerful resource!”
Color it out! is extremely engaging.
Michael Connors, E.L. Haynes Middle School, Washington DC
“The Color Vowel Chart brings attention to the differences among the English vowels--differences that students may not be able to hear. I also like how the Chart has allowed me to incorporate pronunciation into other aspects of my classes. While students are working together on any task, if I hear a major pronunciation problem I can say, "change your vowel from OLIVE to MUSTARD" and the student is able to self correct.”
Jody Gabler
Jody Gabler, ESL Teacher (NY)
“Color Vowel Basics was phenomenal. I learned an innovative but easy way to teach students about the many different sounds that vowels can make. The Color Vowel Chart is easy to learn and uses the different modalities of learning to reach every type of learner.”
K-12 Teacher Pueblo
K-12 ESL Teacher, Pueblo City Schools (CO)
“Wonderful session. Stellar presenters. Great activities. Best session I've been to. They were on fi-yur!”
