• record and listen to yourself
• don’t practise pronouncing individual words, as you need
to practise intonation and sentence stress as well
• read aloud
• watch pronunciation videos, e.g. English with Lucy
• read tongue twisters out loud, such as
– Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. How
many pecks of pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick?
– Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.
While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made these trees’ cheese freeze.
That’s what made these three free fleas sneeze.
• learn the phonetic transcription and check the pronunciation
of new words in a dictionary
• listen to the pronunciation of words in online dictionaries
• practise shadow reading (read along while listening to the text)
• do a lot of listening practice
• try to practice writing the transcription of new words
• study minimal pairs
• look for YouTube channels that focus on teaching pronunciation
• find some role models (some English speakers) you would
like to imitate
