Boost your pronunciation – Part 1

Pronunciation can be tricky!

It’s hard to know how to pronounce a sound, word or phrase in another language and we all worry about getting it wrong. Using the Voice Recording feature on busuu can help.

Listening to yourself speak a foreign language will help you improve your accent and correct some of your mistakes. In the Voice Recording exercises you listen to sentences from a dialogue and then record the sentences yourself.

When you listen to the example, and when you listen back to your recording, focus on these things:

Phonemes - These are the individual sounds that make up words.

Word stress - Which parts of the words are stressed (spoken stronger or louder than the others)?

Intonation - How does your voice move up and down when you speak?

Keep trying until you are happy with your recording and then send to other busuu users!

Get started!
