The main problem of pronaunciation of language is coz of the mother tongue.........and lack of practice of other languages.........if am is not wrong then we too face those type of problem sometimes .coz the letter's are like that.........confuse in P & B ,M & N,B & V..............................


so,i guess maximum practice is the only way solution for such type of problems............and what the rest of the world think about this???? cheers..........

... i'm not much of a savvy in this matter ... but i think close observation & constant repetition of sounds from movies, songs or anything of the sort ( also talking dictionaries like encarta n oxford ) will help ... for those living abroad regular interaction with a native speaker friend or anybody whos willing to help will (i think) improve your pronunciation over time ...

... & good luck to you, sumpurna ji ..

the best way to improve english is actually learning the phonetic language which is present in each dictionary in the first few pages, it's also tallies with our nepali vowels. And then reading the word u need to learn in the dictionary phonectically.

There is a book called Better English Pronunciation http://www.cambridge....asp?id=2500359 which comes with an audio addition. It's really good.

Watch DVD movies with subtitles. Pay attention to what to hear and what is it written in Subtitles. This might improve your skills.

most english dvd's don't have subtitles unless special edition. and no point getting foreign movies with subtitles cause then u don;t get the sound of the words.
