1. Why learn English pronunciation important?
a) Pronunciation is the foundation of learning language
Pronunciation is one of the prerequisites of whether you can speak correctly, speak well and be able to hear English well or not.
As well as learning Vietnamese, the way you learn to pronounce English is the same. From an early age, when you have just learned the language, you will spend a period of one to three years to become familiar with the typography and begin to pronounce and rhyme. And the same goes for English or any other language. To learn a new language well, you need to start with the correct pronunciation practice.
b) Good pronunciation means speaking and listening well?
Yes, as Testuru said above, it is very important that you practice pronunciation correctly right from the beginning. Therefore, it is better for those of you who have studied with foreign teachers for a long time since the beginning. The reason that people following the traditional way of learning is usually not good at speaking is when you start to learn English. You simply learn how to write and remember the vocabulary instead of paying attention to learn pronunciation carefully. Besides, you may have been taught wrongly by your teacher or instructor and once you pronounced incorrectly from the beginning, it is definitely difficult to correct later.
The evidence for this opinion is that young people or children who have a chance to access the standard English environment from an early age, they will have natural pronunciation and accent.
And if you can pronounce exactly, it means you understand the correct pronunciation of that word, so it is easier for you to hear it accurately, right?
2. 6 tips to learn English pronunciation precisely
Now, Testuru will introduce you to how to practice English pronunciation correctly!
a) Start learning from the smallest word units
Just like learning Vietnamese, you start with an individual letter, then rhyme, after that forming an intact word. So for English too, to be able to learn English pronunciation, you also need to start with the smallest syllables of English.
Let's start with learning the English alphabet smoothly and accurately. After you have learned the letter as well as how to read, you will come to the sounds of English. English is not the same as Vietnamese, and the pronunciation, as well as the sounds in English, are very different, so this is an important step that you need to ensure the accuracy while learning and practicing.
b) Know the pronunciation of English
The international phonetic table is a system of phonetic symbols created and used by linguists to represent syllables in all languages of humanity correctly and separately. It was developed by the International Phonetic Society with the aim of becoming the phonetic standard for all languages in the world.
So, to be good at pronunciation, learn to articulate and the English phonetic chart too!
c) Find topics and sources of knowledge that you trust
To be able to study well and acquire knowledge more effectively and comfortably, choose for yourself a suitable method such as online English courses and find topics that interest you. Because studying is a long journey, so feel free to choose exciting things for yourself!
Then choose the vocabulary you like or the words you need, write it down and prepare for the next step!
d) Choose the correct pronunciation course
English pronunciation learning dictionaries are very modern. There is no thick dictionary and full of words like the old ones. Dictionaries now have integrated pronunciation function for vocabulary. So every time you learn a new word, you should learn how to transcribe, practice reading and try to imitate the reading of native speakers as similar as possible.
In this section, there are some small notes that Testuru wants to remind you. That is when choosing a dictionary to learn pronunciation, try to find sources of high reliability because there are probably some dictionaries still has errors in content, and this can adversely affect your learning.
e) Record your own voice
The best way to assess and adjust your English pronunciation is by recording your own voice. Because when you speak, the sound you hear and the sound that others actually hear are not the same. Try this learning method, you will realize a lot of interesting things when listening to yourself speaking English. There are words that you think you have pronounced "very well", but when you record and listen again, you will discover that it still needs to be improved.
f) Practice diligently
We all want fast results. But do not daydream that your English pronunciation will be enhanced dramatically after only 2-3 times of practice. Some centers promise that you can pronounce correctly after just a few sessions, even a few hours. In fact, such a short amount of time could not be enough to correct and guide you on how to pronounce English better. To gain the ability to pronounce properly and naturally, you must continue to practice afterward. If not, it is impossible to be good.
So the key to success is yourself, try to hone your skills to learn English pronunciation very well, you will definitely find your efforts worth it!
