 ==== ====Do you sometimes remain quiet because you are afraid to speak English and not be understood,or worse, laughed at? Learn to sound better in English!

Do you find yourself struggling tocommunicate effectively with clients and colleagues? Here are three ways that you can improveyour pronunciation and reduce your accent. 1. Learn to Pronounce the 2 "th" Sounds Correctly The letter combination "th" has two different sounds in spoken English. One of the "th" sounds is avoiced sound as in the words the and there. Non-native English speakers often substitute the /z/ orthe /d/ sound for the voiced "th" sound and this creates a noticeable accent. The other "th" sound is a voiceless sound as in the words thanks and Thursday. Non-nativeEnglish speakers often use the /d/ and /t/ sounds for the voiceless "th" sound. This type of soundsubstitution will also contribute to your accent. Since the "th" sounds are two of the most frequent consonant sounds in spoken English you mustlearn to pronounce them correctly if you want to improve your American English pronunciation andreduce your accent. 2. Learn to Pronounce Word Medial "t" Like Americans Do When you are speaking American English the medial letter "t" in words such as water and butteroften takes on a new sound. This sound is called the flap and it sounds like more like a quick /d/ than a /t/. The flap is made by tapping your tongue quickly behind your gum ridge. The flap sound occurs frequently in American English. Pronouncing this sound correctly willgreatly improve your American accent! 3. Learn to Use the Correct Sentence Intonation in Questions American English speakers use rising-falling intonation when they ask questions that begin with"wh" words such as what, where, why, when and how. However, many English learnerspronounce "wh" questions using the rising intonation used when asking yes/no questions. Thiscauses communication problems for American listeners and it contributes to your foreign accent. It is important to pronounce 'wh' questions with rising falling intonation in order to improve yourAmerican English pronunciation.
