English pronunciation can be your lifesaver

Proper English pronunciation can be your lifeline at work, school. and socially.

Often, one of the biggest hindrances preventing non-native English speakers from improving on their pronunciation is not listening to what they say. Most ESL teachers and Speech Pathologists will recommend that students record themselves talking or asking a peer or professional for feedback in order to receive honest critiques.

When speaking English as a non-native English speaker, a great deal of energy is dedicated to keeping track on producing the correct language rather than monitoring the language. Because of this, many speakers don’t get to listen to themselves making pronunciation mistakes as they’re speaking.

By recording yourself talking in English, you can listen to what you’ve said afterwards, fully concentrating on your language production, and can try to find areas of improvement. By taking the time to practice recording yourself talking, you can gain increased understanding on what needs special attention and can have a benchmark for future reference to track your improvements.

It may sound strange, hearing your voice repeated back to you after recording, but this form of a pronunciation exercise is something most individuals get used to fairly quickly after listening to themselves a few times.
