  1. Yes, I do. I really care what other people think about my English accent and the way I speak English. Because my first language is not English, so I am scared if other people do not understand what i am saying. Also i have an accent, this is not really good for getting a job if this job requires speaking English a lot. This is a motivation for me to study and practice English more.
  2. My favorite English accent is Canadian English. I used to live in UK and I learned English accent from British. However, when i moved to Canada from London, I recognized that there were many words speaking differently. For example, letter and water. I was confused when i spoke those words in Canada. However, my accent was changed a bit day by day, and it's seem like Canadian English right now. And I love it. I will keep this accent and do not change it anymore.
  3. In Vietnam, English is a part of education. In my case, I started learning English when i was grade 6 at secondary school and ended at grade 12. However, I think that almost student could not speak English well after 7 years of learning this language as a subject at school. The reason is that teacher's skill is not very good to teach students. They always focus on grammar and students do not have any chance to pratice English speaking skill. Moreover, teacher do not pronounce English words correctly. :frozen:

  17. Hello everyone! How are you today? I am able to speak three languages which are Vietnamese, English, Cantonese ( Chinese). Vietnamese is my native language and I did study English few years ago. I did start learn Cantonese last year. Hows about you guys? How many languages do you speak? Have a nice day!
  18. Some reasons why people should learn new language: - Able to make new friends more. - Getting job easier. - Improve your knowledge about culture. - Do not need translator while travelling. - Open your mind. I think these are goods reason to learn new language
  19. I have a Chinese girlfriend and she does speak Mandarin and Cantonese.This is a reason I want to learn Chinese eventhough we both can speak English. Another reason is that there are so many Chinese people around the world, I think that many service want to hire someone who can speak many languages. These are two reasons made me study Chinese as soon as possible. :grin: Have a nice day, you guys!
  20. I think that Chinese language is the hardedt language i have ever learned. My native language do not have a nice handwriting like Chinese. Then i have to remember how to write a word in Chinese. And sometimes i really want to give up on it, and I just want know how to speak and listen from Chinese, I do not want to study Writing in Chinese anymore. I think that Speaking and Listening skill id good enough for me to make a conversation with Chinese people.
  21. I do not think that people forget their native language when they live in another country. I just think that if they think about a word they want to say, they might get a word not from their native language cause that word just came in first. Some people want to show off that they are good at speak another language so they do that. Its gonna be funny when forget native language and not good at new language. :grin:
  22. Thank you for all you sharing, guys! We all had this problem, however i hope you guys will study harder to able to speak well the language which you want to learn. You guys should watch TV shows, or music. It helps me not to get bored when I learn new language. Try to get over of our problem. :grin:
  23. I pretty sure that for those who is not native speaker has accent when they speak. The accent depends on your country language. So you will see a lot of people has different accents cause they come from different country. However, your accent will be disappear or decreased when you live in that country. It takes long time to decrease your accents, Moreover, you should make a lot of conversation with native speaker, they will fix for you and you will learn from them alot. Hope this helps!
  24. Yes, i usually feel shy when i speak English with some people who is much better than me. However, i found that Instead of being shy, I should learn from them. When they talk to me, i usually focus on what they are talking and how they pronouce a word which i do not pronouce corectly. Do not be shy, my friend. Take it as a chance to study and practice. I am pretty sure that you will be better if you talk to native speaker or who is better than you. Good lucks

I hope this website will help you to pronouce correctly. Have a nice day
