First, I would like to take the opportunity to WELCOME you to the ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION GROUP. By joining the group, you've made a wise decision to improve your pronunciation. The aim of this group is to provide a platformfor members of the club to share ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION related Information, Activities, Quizzes, Ideas, etc. So, please don't hesitate to make fruitful contributions for our mutual benefits! “Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality.” ~* Dalai Lama XIV *~
BY THE WAY..., have you been yearning to solve your PRONUNCIATION PROBLEMS once and for all but not sure what exactly to do? I conduct a couple of FREE CLASSES for individuals who are seeking for HELP. I'll teach you the Speech SOUNDS, Sound SYMBOLS and how to read the PHONETIC SPELLINGS. A PHONETIC SPELLING is the PRONUNCIATION of a word in the form of text. Anyone who could read the PHONETIC SPELLINGS printed after each word (e.g. pseudonym /ˈsjuːdənɪm/) in the dictionary could easily tell the PRONUNCIATION of ALL THE WORDS listed in the dictionary. Contact me over Skype if you're interested, I'm just a click away! CLICK HERE >> live:gabrielsowrian
What you see below was taken from the Oxford Dictionary. Do you see the symbols in a pair of slashes after each word. Those are the PRONUNCIATIONS of the related WORDS. I have posted a whole new discussion devoted to PRONUNCIATION in the DICTIONARY. Check it out, guys!
What you see below is a voice recorder. You can RECORD saying / reading something and LISTEN to it right away. The app does not save your recording. Thus, you don't have to feel shy to record your voice as many times as you want. Give it a try; you'll like it.
If you want to SHARE your VOICE RECORDING anywhere at the group to participate in the challenges, there is another tool that you could use. It's called CHIRBIT. All you have to do there is RECORD your voice (or UPLOAD a sound file), SUBMIT it, press the SHARE button, Press this SYMBOL</> for the EMBED CODE, COPY the code, come here and PRESS the "Media" button, PASTE the code and finally, PRESS the OK button. That's it!
This is how your audio player will look like! Now, press the "Play" button and listen to my voice reording.
English Sound System
A learner’s effort to master the pronunciation of English words could be hampered if there is no proper understanding about the “English Sound System”, if you ask me!
You may argue that there are other factors which are the real obstacles in accomplishing this quest, for example…
Mother tongue influence,
The ineffectiveness of the English syllabus used in schools, Lack of opportunity to speak in the…
Hello, Gabriel and Ec members! I have noticed when it comes to improving reading skills many people prefer to read stories and novels… mostly fictions. So why not to read and record only stories? Yes, you have heard it right. In this forum, I would like to invite EC members to read the story and record their voice. A story can be SHORT STORY or any MODERATE-SIZED STORY or any NOVEL. I believe, starting with short and moderate-sized stories would be convenient for all of us.
