A trick I learned from a friend when I was in college about Spanish pronunciation has come in handy for me in the last few years.
The trick is: after learning the sounds that the Spanish vowels make, to practice pronunciation, try saying normal English words in Spanish.
…its not very easy… but it has two effects: 1.) practice 2.) understanding why some Spanish speakers say certain English words in a specific way.
I’ve been using this on my husband… and he’s having fun with it, and it is helping him say words better in Spanish 😉
