Teaching English

Pronunciation problems

Stan.Laurel

I always find it very embarrassing when I tell my students that they need to speak well. The reason? I’ve been in Italy for a long ,long time and I still speak like Stan Laurel!

But the point is this: People can understand me because Italian is a pretty straightforward language to speak, whereas if you don’t get English pronunciation right, you’ll be misunderstood, AND, what is worse, you’ll have difficulty understanding others.
