At this time, i have to study English a lot for prepare to go to America, it's only 3 months more, but now, i have a little nervous because i can't understand what native speaker say when i listen to them on the radio or TV. What i have to do to overcome this problem
One of my English teachers once told me that if someone wants to understand what English native speakers say, he/ she should pronounce English correctly. So, your first step would be looking up words in dictionaries, try to pronounce them correctly. If you are not sure about the pronunciation of any word, don't try to guess how it is pronounced, look it up in the dictionary. There are a lot of exceptions in English, especially American English. Btw, why don't we talk about this topic. Anyone could share her knowledge of any exceptions which may help prevent others from misusing.
The followings are pronounced differently from what we (non-English speakers) assume they are.
- Arkansas (a state of the Us)
Can you list some more?
