  • Record yourself while you speak. Sometimes, we don’t know exactly how we sound until we carefully listen to our own voices. So when you’re practicing pronunciation, record yourself and then compare that with the learning material.
  • Make your learning social. Pronunciation isn’t like spelling or grammar. You can’t expect to memorize certain rules and magically be able to pronounce everything the right way. You need to speak more often and get feedback from the people you speak to, in English.
  • Supplement pronunciation apps with other English content. The more exposure to English that you get, the better. So when you aren’t using your English pronunciation app, watch television shows and follow the news on BBC, paying attention to the way people speak.
  • Replay videos again and again. You won’t be able to memorize how a word is pronounced just by listening to it once. So replay your audio material over and over until you’re confident you’re getting it right.
  • Learn the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA): The IPA is a pretty useful thing to learn, especially for non-native speakers. As you can see on the IPA chart different sounds are represented by particular letters and symbols. Once you know the chart by heart, you’ll be prepared to pronounce any word.
