So, you do not need to sound like a native speaker. You need to sound understandable. But, what is understandable English?

If practiced well, English pronunciation can be learned in a very short amount of time, even less than one month. If you know what you have to learn, it is much easier than just practicing ‘pronunciation’. Fortunately, there is a list of pronunciation features we can learn that give us the highest chance of being understood:
Features for understandable English:
Feature One: Most Consonants and the /ɛ:/ sound
It helps to know that pronunciation is visible, even though it is the creation of sound. We can see sounds being pronounced. This is how deaf people are able to lip read. They look at the movements of the mouth, then guess the sounds, and then the word. In this lesson, I will show you which parts of your mouth to move to produce different sounds, starting with the vowels.
In the last video, we looked at the monophthongs, or the vowels with one vowel sound. Next we look at the diphthongs, the vowels made up of two vowel sounds. https://www.youtube.com/embed/ZM0IgiQPXlA?version=3&rel=1&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&fs=1&hl=en-NZ&autohide=2&wmode=transparent
And last, we look at the consonants.
