    I must work hard on my pronunciation.

    Which sentence is miore natural? I think, the second one is better. Am I right?

    1) I must work much at my pronunciation.
    2) I must work hard on my pronunciation.

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    We tend not to use much in positive sentences. I don't have much free time sounds natural, but I have much free time is not as natural.
