Pronunciation problems


Do you feel frustrated every time you try to communicate in English and people fail to understand you? It’s possible that you are pronouncing certain sounds incorrectly. For example, English vowel sounds are notoriously difficult to master for speakers of languages like Spanish or Italian. Why? There are only 5 vowel sounds in Spanish, but there can be up to 20 vowel sounds in English. Chinese speakers may have problems pronouncing the different “r” sounds in English, and Arabic speakers find it difficult to pronounce the “p” sound, as it doesn’t exist in their mother tongue.

There are many websites around the web that offer free worksheets and help with grammar and courses, many apps that can teach you all the basics, but with pronunciation - the best and most effective method to correct and learn how to speak English so that you are understood is to converse with native English people.
