It is very hard to reduce your native accent and improve your British or American English Pronunciation. You need to both listen to the words and pronounce them. We have already guided you on how to sound like a native speaker. Today, I’m going to show you 7 websites you can use everyday to improve your pronunciation.
To become perfect in pronunciation, it is very important to not only listen to the words, but also to practise pronouncing them yourself. In our Skype lessons, you listen to the native teacher first and then pronounce the words yourself. You learn how to remember the meanings of words, how to use them in different situations/sentences and how to pronounce them correctly at the same time. This way, I doubt you’ll ever forget a word you learn!
It is one of the most effective methods of practice.
