Is pronunciation important?


Tagged: , , ,

My friend Mike studied Spanish for a year and learned a lot of vocabulary as well as verb tenses. He felt really good about his Spanish. However, after visiting Barcelona for 2 weeks, he came back frustrated. Why?

People couldn´t understand his pronunciation and communication was virtually impossible.

Sounds familiar?

If you´ve been my student for some time, I am sure you´ve heard of teacher Rachel.

In today´s class, we´ll use one of her great videos on pronunciation and practice together. In order to really improve this skill, this type of exercise should be done every day.
