How to Improve your Pronunciation
Hello!

I hope you had a great week and that you’re ready to practice some English.


Your progress:

Beginners - Unit 8

Progress 100%

First of all, I want to teach you a famous sentence:

“The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog”

It’s a very popular sentence because it uses all the letters of the alphabet. This makes it a great way to practice your English pronunciation every day.

Today, I want to give you some tips on how to practice speaking in English. We’re going to start this lesson by remembering the difference between enunciating and pronouncing.

Pronunciation is properly saying each group of letters to make the correct sounds.

Enunciation is speaking clearly in order to allow someone to understand what you are saying.

Let’s look at an example with the word “February”:

Correct pronunciation - “Feb-rue-air-ee”

Correct enunciation: saying the word slowly and clearly.

However, if you said “Feb-you-air-ee” slowly and clearly, you would be enunciating well but your pronunciation would not be correct.

Or, if you said “Feb-rue-air-ee” properly but you said it very quickly and quietly, your pronunciation is correct but nobody will be able to hear you.

This is why I always tell my students that to speak like the Queen of England, you must enunciate AND pronounce words well.

If you’d like to keep practicing your pronunciation, I recommend you watch our new Youtube series. In each video you’ll learn a new word, how to pronounce it and how to use it in a sentence.

You can start by learning how to pronounce the word “thoroughly”. Just click on the video to watch the correct enunciation and pronunciation:

Thoroughly

I hope you enjoyed this pronunciation class!

See you next week,
