"Just the way you speak, your English pronunciation, can determine and change the path of your life.”
Why English pronunciation matters more than you think.
Why bother? If can make myself understood.
This is a very common attitude I’ve heard from many clients , but I beg to differ. You can’t just say “communication is enough” and then regard pronunciation as something only for those truly interested.All mistakes in a language affects communication in some way. If you make one mistake in every sentence, you can probably get away with it, but since it’s very unlikely that your grammar, word choice and so on are all perfect, it makes sense to try to minimise the number of errors, including in pronunciation.
In Trevor Noah’s lastest comedy stand up show, Afraid of the dark, he dedicates the importance of accents.
