Small English Pronunciation error with a big effect

Small Eng­lish Pro­nun­ci­a­tion Error with a Big Effect- AUDIO

Some­times it's the small Eng­lish pro­nun­ci­a­tion errors that can have a big effect on being under­stood eas­i­ly when you speak.

One Eng­lish pro­nun­ci­a­tion error, that peo­ple make is to leave the /s/ sound out in the /ks/ con­so­nant blend at the end of words. This is espe­cial­ly com­mon if the word after it begins with a con­so­nant also.

Just this one Eng­lish pro­nun­ci­a­tion  error can make a big dif­fer­ence to your speech clar­i­ty,  espe­cial­ly if you have to use it a lot in the words you use at work or social­ly.

For exam­ple if you need to use the phrase ‘com­plex prob­lem', and you say ‘com­plek prob­lem' it can make you dif­fi­cult to under­stand in Eng­lish.

I have pre­pared audio train­ing for you so you can tidy this up in your Eng­lish pro­nun­ci­a­tion.  Even if you don't make this error, you can use the train­ing to prac­tise your Eng­lish stress, melody and into­na­tion.
