Read Out Loud

Learning English means participating in classes and also spending lots of time studying on your own. You can use that time very effectively to work on different skills at the same time!

Here is one useful tip to help practice your English pronunciation and to make the time you spend studying twice as effective.

You already know that it is important to speak in class so that your teacher can correct your pronunciation. But we also know that practice makes perfect!

When you do your homework, you always have to read the examples and questions. Maybe you read articles online in English, too. Go ahead and read everything out loud.

The muscles in your mouth that help you pronounce words are just like any other muscle in your body. You need to train them with lots of repetitions.

As you make sounds again and again, they will become easier for you. This will permanently improve your pronunciation.

You should also look for opportunities to read fun, interesting stories. This makes reading out loud really enjoyable.

And remember, if you have any questions about how a word is pronounced, you canwrite it down to ask your teacher later. You can also look the word up in a good online dictionary that will give you a phonetic spelling of the word or even let you listen to an audio recording.

This is a great way to practice pronunciation while you learn grammar and vocabulary. Make your study time count by reading out loud!
