Tip 16: Mastering Pronunciation II

There can be many ways of getting the right pronunciation. But one common thing among them all is consistency. You have to keep practising till you get it right.

  • Record Yourself: Record the words with short and long vowels in your own voice. Make your teacher or an English expert listen to the recording. Ask him/her to correct your pronunciation. Do it again after correcting and get it checked. You can also verify your recording by listening to the audio pronunciation keys on dictionary.com.
  • One at a time: Try to speak slowly whenever you speak in English. Give yourself enough time to pronounce each word correctly. Remember, accuracy is your goal right now not speed.
  • Loud reading: Do 20-30 minutes of reading aloud every day. Whenever you find some words difficult to pronounce, open the audio pronunciation key of the dictionary and then practise. Do this regularly every day for at least one month.
  • Learn songs: Another sure-shot way to correct your pronunciation is to learn a few English songs and sing along with the audio. This will give you clues of several words and their pronunciation.
  • Listen a lot: Whenever you hear other people who know English, lend a listening ear. The best way to correct pronunciation is to listen to other people and copy their pronunciation.
  • Don’t copy accent: Your goal is to pronounce English words correctly not to copy anybody’s accent. Try to be original but correct. Blindly copying the accent does not help in pronunciation.
