Have you ever paused when speaking English because you know a word, but you don’t know how to pronounce it?
Do you find that it lowers your fluidity, and your confidence?
There’s no fast way to learn English pronunciation (it’s a tricky subject!) but I can make it easier for you.
My tip: Learn the tonic accent for the most common verbs.
Many English learners know a lot of verbs from reading. But speaking is very different. Often, English learners don’t pronounce verbs clearly, which can cause a lot of confusion.
For example, I was speaking with someone and she said,
“I don’t think that I can can sell it.”
I thought, sell what?
She actually meant to say “cancel” and not “can sell”.
She didn’t use the tonic accent, and it wasn’t clear.
Now, have a look at this sentence:
I decided to participate because I wanted to help.
Here’s how a native English speaker would pronounce it:
I de-CI-ded to par-TI-cipate because I WANT-ed to HELP.
Using the tonic accent, we can see that the sentence goes up and down.
Verbs can be placed into groups based on their pronunciation “shape”.
