    Default Please recomend me good way of practicing pronounciation

    I was born in Korea and have lived in Korea.

    As you know there are not many people speaking

    English in Asian countries. So, I never use English when I'm with

    Korean people.

    I have lots of interst in pronounciation, but the only time that I can

    practice is when I am with English speaking people which is very rare.

    So if you have any idea about practicing pronounciation without

    English speaking people, please recomend me..

    Things that I need to practice are vowels like 'pen' and 'pan'.

    And the most hard thing is intonation..Please give me any advice~!

    If you want to get a good pronunciation then I recommend you watch the news on BBC and if You don't have cable tv, you can go to YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. and put the word "bbc news" in the seeker and it's going to appear a lot of news. Just watch them and notice the pronunciation the have. It's a beautiful accent.

    If you just want to practice a couple of words just visit English to French, Italian & Spanish Dictionary - WordReference.com, You put the word in english and a phonetic record appear.

    hey friend you can do one thing to make your pronunciation skill hike. the only thing you need to do is download wordweb dictionary from internet and type the word u need to pronounce after hitting enter key there will be a key for pronunciation. again if u do not get the proper answer hit the speaker button and u will hear the word in various accents........

    Enjoy the software......i use it too.........

    Hi Bianca, According to me not everyone of us can afford to spend money for being online all the time when we need help on pronunciation, so i suggested a money saver solution to Mr/Miss.Luckyleon and not only it helps in saving money but also it gives fast results.........so i suggested the same for him/her.

    Bianca, in case if i have hurt you or offended you, please make certain that i did not mean it.......ok
