Record Yourself Speaking
Speak English into a voice recorder. When you are done, play it back. How do you sound? Identify words that you need to spend more time studying.
Find something to read, like a passage from a magazine, a poem, or a blog.
To compare your recording to a native speakers, read out loud a famous poem. Then compare it to a recording of a native speaker saying the same poem.
If you’re in an English class, ask your teacher to listen to the recording. Ask them how you could improve.
Practice Tongue Twisters
Tongue twisters are phrases that are difficult to say quickly because they contain many similar sounds. These are a great way to practice your skills. Try to say the following phrases correctly. When you master them, try saying them faster.
She sells sea shells on the sea shore.
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Red lorry, yellow lorry, red lorry, yellow lorry.
Good Practice Makes Perfect
Do some simple exercises:
Read aloud and repeat the words which you find difficult to pronounce
Recite poems or sing songs, observing rhythm and imitate the intonation
Shadowing is one of the best way to practice. Pick a movie and watch it with subtitles. If you find a difficult sentence, write it down and practice.
Talk to Siri or a Dictation App
Some apps and programs will transform your spoken word into text. If you mispronounce something, it will tell you. You can use a translation program like Google Translate or an electronic assistant program like Siri or Alexa.
