3 tips to improve your Spanish pronunciation

 

Pronunciation is important as you want people you talk to be able to understand you, there are few things more discouraging than spending hours studying a language and once you have the chance to communicate with someone in real life they are not able to understand what you are saying…Do not worry I am here to avoid that happening to you.

 

And also I have seen people with good accent, in other words good pronunciation being more confident and being able to communicate better than other people, even when they did not have the best grammar.

 

1-Listen, before you start speaking you need to get familiar with the way Spanish speak, if you are listening an audio, listen to it several times. Try to practice with slower audios as if the audio is too fast you won’t be able to hear the syllables properly.

 

2-Repeat, and I mean it! When you are listening something, don’t just repeat once and move on, repeat as many times as you need until you are comfortable with the words. I recommend a minimum of three times.

 

3-Record yourself speaking in Spanish if you could have a native speaking giving you feedback would be awesome, but it is not necessary, you can always listening to your audio and compare it with original one. Take note of the differences and work on improving your pronunciation to closely match the native recording.

 

An amazing way to practice all these three tips is listening to music! Pick a Spanish sound, make sure you got the lyrics for it and listening to it once and again, do not try to repeat the lyrics straight away, that will create confusion and disappointed and you won’t be familiarize with the lyrics yet. After a few times, you can start only focusing on the chorus, they are always easier as they repeat several times,  then you will be ready to go, start reading/singing the lyrics at the same time, after a few times you could try and record yourself to see how you are doing, or where to improve.

 

I leave you some suggestions that are a good fit for practicing this exercise.
