Useful Pronunciation Tips
4 Jul 2014 admin
It’s hard to make yourself speak when you don’t feel confident with your pronunciation. This is probably the toughest barrier in getting your message across using the English language. But to get better at English pronunciation, you have to practice. So, where do you start?
- Speak as much as possible even by yourself in front of a mirror. You are training the muscles of your mouth and throat to produce English sounds as you do this.
- Find opportunities to chat. Start with those telemarketers bugging you with their products and services. Listen and engage yourself by asking questions or responding to their queries.
- Mimic television, radio and song lines. This will help you with proper pronunciation and speed of everyday speech.
- Find something you enjoy reading, and read out loud. This exercise will help you speak clearly with words, phrases and sentences flowing smoothly.
