I'd like to talk about how to reduce your Japanese accent.
The first I'd like to say my English pronunciation is not perfect, but place.
I don't have typical Japanese accent, I believe so.
Let me share what I did to reduce my Japanese accent.
But before we get into it, I like you to know why our English sounds all Japanese.
Three things you should know first.
English has a lot of sound The Japanese doesn't have most remarkable wants, are are.
So when we pronounce those sounds, we pick up the closest sounds from Japanese and self do them for those English words.
For example, Way pronounced, breathe us booties it.
Substituting our and four l and second in Japanese almost levels end with fellows.
But it's not the case in English, and we still apply the same for English.
Worse, for example, we pronounced desk as this good at a next year, you sound to make the civil end with Velo.
Third, when we accentuate worse, we changed the tone, the worst in Japanese, but in English were supposed to stress the word for example, in Japanese, we say, like as it made my stay, but in English, it's nice to meet you.
See the difference of innovation because you're used to this tone accent instead of pronouncing Nice to meet you.
We pronounced Nice to meet you.
It's pretty monotonous.
Doesn't sound English, So these are the three things you should know.
You have to work on your pronunciation, keeping distinct in your mind so that you can analyze your own pronunciation Right.
Then what exactly did I do to improve my English pronunciation?
First, you have to learn how to read phonetic singles and how to pronounce that you cannot keep using Japanese sounds for English.
This is probably the hottest bar, but if you run away from this, you will sound Japanese forever and correct.
Pronunciation also enables you to speak English much faster.
Thanks do English liaison, which I'm going to talk about later anyway, since the foundation of speaking.
So be patient and do whatever you need to memorize them.
There is no easy way you have to learn that one by one.
Now you know how to read and pronounce phonetic symbols.
The second step is to learn worse with correct pronunciation.
Every time you see new worst, check the phonetic symbol with a dictionary, and the important thing is you have to practice pronouncing it to your mouth with members to sounds, because knowing the correct pronunciation, that's not necessarily me.
You can pronounce the word, so repeat this process again and again.
Now we move on to the last step, which is to learn the English intonation and rhythm.
They're sometimes the will of door on estimating, but I think it is as important as correct pronunciation because the intonation and rhythm off language changed how words to pronounce and accentuated, and the best way to learn intonation and rhythm is shadowing.
When I was in Belgium, I did shadowing at least one hour a day, and as a result, my English pronunciation changed drastically.
And the best thing about shadowing is that by just repeating the audio, you will learn.
No, it's more like absorbed the intonation and rhythm off English.
You don't need to think much, and at the same time you will know how English liaison works.
You will know how English words to combined and you be able to speak match faster.
And as a learning material, I would recommend Ted talk because they have a lot of interesting videos with English subtitles which we will bake your shadowing much more fun than easier.
So this is pretty much what I did to improve my pronunciation.
There might be better way to improve your pronunciation and am I not?
But first, I know this is the best way, so please try it.
