How To Improve Your English Pronunciation

Do you struggle with English pronunciation of words?

Because we’ve got a great question about the difficulty of speaking.

“Well, my worst problem is speaking and it´s difficult is due to pronunciation. This kind of struggle isn´t related to difficulties to learn but to the ability of being able to produce or reproduce using our own words to communicate.” – Crislaine

So, I want to share a tip on how you can improve your pronunciation and reduce your accent.

This is something I learned from…

A Brazilian Student Who Had Perfect Pronunciation

I was in São Paulo working as a translator.

And I met a man who I thought was American because his English was so good.

So, when he told me he was Brazilian, I was shocked.

I asked him how long he had lived in the United States.

He said he had never lived abroad.

I was amazed.

So, I asked him how he learned such perfect English. He told me his ‘secret’ for…

How To Develop A Perfect Accent In English

He told me that his secret was watching old Western movies with John Wayne.

And there were 3 things that he did to ‘correct’ and improve his pronunciation

  1. He said what the actors were going to say and tried to imitate their accent.
  2. He listened to what the actors said and see if he pronounced everything correctly.
  3. Then he repeated what the actor said again, this time correcting any mistakes.

This way, he would consistently improve his mistakes and improve his pronunciation.

Little by little he would reduce his accent until he spoke perfect English.
