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.
