Say these words correctly. It's laughable at how some English words are pronounced. Let's learn

As a learner of the English language, we tend to make certain pronunciation errors. It's Okay as we are just learners but obviously we expose ourselves to ridicules from the native speakers. It should be viewed that a learner of any second language should aim at a certain level comparable to that of the native speaker. Amongst the words pronounced incorrectly are;

Word. Wrongly pronounced. Correctly P.

In view of that, learners needs to consistently practice to get a firm grip.This is very important because the value of English to us primarily lies in the fact that English is a world language and we need it for communication with other English language users outside our borders. It is also fun to almost be able to speak fluently and express yourself. One must use dictionaries and also focus on the word transcriptions which can aid in words pronouncement.
