Some students think that learning a language only involves studying grammar and vocabulary. They want to improve their listening and speaking skills but they hardly ever think of pronunciation, one of the most neglected skills and yet extremely important if you want to understand and be understood. I challenge you to properly pronounce the following words :
‘island, famous, bear, beard, promised, first, butcher, skirt, ear, hair, women, comfortable, blood, lettuce’.
If you want to check your pronunciation, click on my avatar and listen to me.

As you can see, pronunciation can be a problem sometimes. Watch the video and see if you are able to say ‘I would like to buy a hamburger’
