You spoke about hesitating and stuttering. I think many people sometimes have a tendency to hesitate when they speak. The words don't always come easily. Sometimes we have to give some thought to what we say. So, I'm not sure just how much of a concern this should be. Do you find that your hesitating and stuttering is excessive? Does this happen far too often in your opinion?
Can you please tell me some of the things you did to practice pronunciation?
