Please use a mirror. This is the easiest way to tell what your mouth is doing during a call.
Put a finger in front of your lips (as you say “shh”). Do not move your fingers when you speak.
You should feel your lips leaving your fingers or pushing your fingers.
Looking at other people, I notice the shape when they say my lips and lips. Please follow your favorite TV show and movie. Can you repeat the face and sound that the actor makes?
3. Pay attention to your tongue.
The main difference between rice and lice is your tongue. When you speak, you move the tongue and distribute the sound. You would not notice without thinking. It is a good idea to understand what your language is doing to improve your pronunciation in English.
Difficult sounds made by non-native carriers are the letters “L” and “R” and the sound “TH”. Everything you say correctly is your language!
To create an “L” sound, your tongue should touch your mouth and above your mouth, right behind your teeth. Let’s try now: let’s say the word “light.” I will say this several times. I feel where your tongue is in your mouth. Please make sure it touches your mouth.
Your tongue should not touch your mouth to make an “R” sound. Return the mouth in the middle and, of course, draw a tongue next to the tongue, if you do not say anything. When you speak this sound, your lips are slightly rounded. Try at once: say the word “right” several times.
When you speak, you should feel that the air is blowing between your mouth and mouth. You should also feel that your lip will be slightly rounded at the sound.
This time for the sound “TH”. If there is no such sound in your native language, it may seem strange.
To produce this sound, place your tongue between the upper and lower teeth. Your tongue should stretch slightly between your teeth. If you blow air out of your mouth, avoid getting air between your teeth and your teeth. Try it now: say the word “think.” I repeat several times. Press the tongue between the teeth.
Because I knew where to place my language, do you hear the difference?
4. Break words down into sounds.
Words consist of syllables or parts. For example, the word “syllable” has three syllables, syl-la-ble. Transforming words into parts facilitates pronunciation.
To see the number of syllables included in the word, place your hand under the chin. Say the word slowly. Every time your chin touches your hand, it’s a syllable.
You can also partially write the word. Place a space or draw a line between each syllable (for each syllable at least one vowel is required: a, e, i, o, u, y). Say the word now. Please stop slowly after each syllable. Isn’t that so easy?
5. Add stress to sounds and words.
English is the language of stress. That is, some words and sounds are more important than others. You can hear it when you say the words loudly. For example, the word “enter” sounds finally energized, so it sounds like that. “In-Tro-Duce”
Sometimes a place where stress puts on words that can change the meaning of words. Speaking of “presentation”, I am talking about a “noun”, meaning “this moment” or “gift.” If you say “Present”, you are talking about a verb. It means “give or see.”
There is a rule in which every stress puts stress. There is one rule:
Most of the two syllable nouns are underlined in the first syllable, and the majority of the two syllable verbs are underlined in the second syllable.
This is another example. The noun “ADDress” is where you live, and the verb “addRESS” should speak to someone.
If this seems too complicated, do not worry about learning all these rules. The best way to learn is to listen and practice. Please remember that most English speakers do not know the rules. They say that “the sound is right.” If you exercise enough, you can get the right sound.
The proposals also present stress. A few words are more important and speak with clarity and power than the rest of the text. Read this sentence: “I ate butter toast in the morning”
Sentences should be heard like this. (Bold words – underlined words): “I ate buttered toast in the morning.” How do you slow down and become something important every time you become an important word?
Let’s continue to read aloud, talk, listen to places where other people are stressed when talking.
6. Use pronunciation podcasts and videos.
There are some great video and audio guides for English pronunciation that you can use to improve.
7. Record yourself.
One way to see if your exercise works is to record yourself using the camera. Use a camera, not just a voice recorder. Not only listen, listen, it is important to see how to speak.
8. Practice with a buddy.
