Today I would like to share with you three techniques to practise your English pronunciation and speaking:
1. If you want to improve your speaking and pronunciation in English, I advise you to listen to an audio, a story for example, and after that to start reading aloud.
Start listening to the same audio, at least, three or four times. After that, read mentally and listen to the audio at the same time.
The last step is reading aloud without listening to the audio anymore.
2. If you are not sure about your pronunciation, you will need to work harder: listen carefully to a short fragment (a phrase), pause, and repeat that part aloud. Your goal is to imitate the pronunciation which you have just listened to. Continue this process until you reach the end of the story, article, etc.
3. There is another method called shadowing which is more complicated yet more efficient.
If you are serious about improving your English pronunciation and speaking, then you should try out this method. Before using shadowing, you will want to listen to the same audio many times.
These are the instructions: you listen to a story, and simultaneously you read aloud.
I know that speaking English is not an easy path, and I’m here to help. I recommend you to use the Speak English Now course together with these three techniques.
