    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Eyiko:

    One thing that you can (and should) do is to buy a book that teaches you where to put your tongue in order to pronounce all the various sounds of the English language.

    Re: How to improve pronunciation?

    There is no easy way to learn correct pronunciation. If they were, all learners would pronounce English well. It's very difficult for most of us to learn correct pronunciation from books, unless they have an accompanying CD. Even then, many learners cannot hear what they are doing incorrectly.

    The only sure way is to have one-to-one lessons with a teacher, who can give you instant feedback on what you are saying, and tell/show you how to improve.
