Blog on English Essentials
Hello and welcome to our first of many blogs regarding English enrichment and its many aspects. We will be talking about many forms and meanings relating to English, ranging from punctuation, pronunciation, spelling, grammar, phonics and a whole lot more.
English Oral Practice
To start us off, we will begin by looking at oral and pronunciation, and why many students, who are learning English, find it difficult at first. This is because everybody has an accent from their mother tongue and so can be difficult to lose when learning a new language. Furthermore, certain word soundings will be challenging, but keep practicing, and never give up if you really want to sound like a English native.
Here are three methods for you to try.
Let’s take a look at some words.
Socialisation (so shul iz a shion)
Television (tel a viz ion)
Following (fo low ing)
Pronouncing (pro nown sing)
Weather (weth er)
Internet (in te net)
Condition (con dit shon)
Anomaly (a nom ma lee)
Adding to letters (vowels) together will dramatically change the pronunciation.
