"Without being interested in class,  you won't be able to see and feel progress in learning. If you don't have the drive in learning, there will be no improvement." -T. Golda

Here are her tips on getting  your English pronunciation right and impeccable

  1. Be positive and feel good before starting the class

"First of all, you need to be interested in learning the language. Without being interested in class, you won't be able to see and feel progress in learning. If you don't have the drive in learning, there will be no improvement."

She further explained improvement is felt by those who have a positive feeling when entering the class; so make sure you feel good before starting your class or personal practice.

2. Pay attention on mouth mechanism for each letter

T. Golda  always tells her students to pay attention on details of their mouth mechanism.What happens inside the mouth matters. Since she loves to focus on pronunciation details, she makes sure her students sound like an American after the 20-day class. Sounds promising?  Try booking her class online.

Normally, the most challenging sound to teach are letters R and L. Golda usually tells her students to treat each mouth mechanism like a facial workout. For R and L , she explained that  knowing the distinction between 2 sounds  is  also essential.

Try this :

/l/ sound is produced with a large flap of the tongue. The effective way to make it clear that you aren’t pronouncing /r/ is to bend your tongue as far back as you can in your mouth, and flick it forward as you say /l/.

At first, it is difficult but constant practice will make everything sound natural as days go by.

3. Constant Practice

T. Golda doesn't  get tired telling her students to practice. It is really tiring to pay attention on the details learned.Leveling of practice matters; it  means when you start learning about the sound of each letter, try to move forward on higher units of pronunciation through word drills . The last leg of pronunciation is learning American blending rules.

4. Tongue Twisters

Just imagine exercising without a a proper warm-up; tongue twisters could be a good way to start your pronunciation drills. It prepares you for higher level of practice. You won't easily get tired when you have a nice warm-up formula.

5. Listen to Audio books  and mimic how native speakers talk

According to T. Golda, it is you who can actualize improvement.  You may spend an hour in class with her, but after the class you also need to make a personal move like listening to audio books. Audio books can help you mimic the native speaker's way of speaking.
