    I want to know how to pronounce several words.

    When I speak to teachers or other people the words like work and walk, letter "c", they often don't understand what I say. So, these give me a stress. How can I speak to these words well? Please teach me how to pronounce these words well.

    Re: I want to know how to pronounce several words.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Are you making sure that you are enunciating the "k" at the end very clearly and not running it into the next word?

    Forvo is a great pronunciation tool. If you go to Forvo.com, choose English from the language list and then search for a word, you will find multiple recordings of native speakers (and others) saying the word.

    Here is the page for the word "work". Click on the word "work" where it says >work (15 pronunciations).
    Here is the page for "walk" (28 recordings).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
