I am going to tell you about an experience that I gave advice to my niece to correct her English pronunciation during last summer vacation. Back then, I had devoted most of my time to playing video games, hanging out with my friends, and reading novels. Noticing my idleness, my aunt asked me to tutor my niece, who was in the fifth grade of primary school and had an enormous amount of homework to finish.
During this process, I found that although she had been learning English for 5 years, most of her classes had focused on the words, phrases, and grammatical rules, while ignoring its pronunciation. As a result, she could read some English articles and even understand some lines in English movies, but she often confused me when she tried to conduct a conversation in this language.
Therefore, instead of instilling more lexical resources and grammar into her, I advised her to dub movies. In general, she first listened to the original lines, tried her best to mimic them, and recorded her own version. This article is from website. Then she played it out to see where the difference lay and optimized it. The whole process would be repeated 3 or 4 times before moving to the next sentence. With this method, she could realize where she had made mistakes, how the different syllables were connected, and how to perform liaison, contraction, and reduction.
I was proud of what I did. Although her oral English was far from perfect when the summer vacation came to an end, I could at least figure out what she was talking about rather than being perplexed by obscure sounds. Moreover, she also had a lot of fun with it. She often indulged in the practice for hours without feeling tired.
