The best platform for learning how to say or pronounce specific words quickly is the Cambridge dictionary online. Just simply follow the instruction below:

  1. Type in the word you want to learn how to pronounce in the search bar inside Cambridge dictionary
  2. Once the page of that specific word has loaded, you will see a speakerphone symbol right under the word and by clicking on the symbol, it will transmit an audio sound of that specific word.
 

Note:

Please understand that this is to help you to learn how to say any word, it does not guarantee that you can pronounce any specific word correctly by mimicking the sound.

English pronunciation is complex and requires specific vocal training in order to acquire the skillset needed to help you to speak like a native. Speecheti can help! 

Yes, mispronounced words will convey different meanings and lead to misunderstandings. This is where communication breaks down. At times it can be comical and sometimes it might get you into trouble. For example, Shoplifters will be “prosecuted”, not “prostituted”.

First of all, you need to understand the natural flow of spoken English. You can watch British movies and TV dramas to start getting familiar with it. In our opinion, this is actually the fun part of learning to speak English! We would recommend Downton Abbey, The Crown, Paddington and more. Pay attention and mimic their rhythm and stress. Remember to learn to pause, you are not running a marathon.

Learning English is not the same as learning to speak English. Native English teachers may not have the necessary skillset to teach you articulation & change your accent, they aren’t necessarily the best accent experts.

By speaking more, you will learn new vocabulary, slang & how to say different words. But learning to speak with a British accent properly requires adequate training. There are specific techniques behind it.

Many non-native English speakers can read and write English to a very good level, but quite often they struggle with spoken English. Speaking well gives you confidence & allows you to convey your messages clearly & be understood properly. 

People underestimate the real work that goes into learning English pronunciation and articulation. To do it properly, it takes time, appropriate training, discipline and hard work. There’s no shortcut to speaking well. We want results for our clients, not advertising income.
