Improve your pronunciation

Our new page in the pronunciation section of the site
helps you to link sounds between words.

Linking is important because it helps you maintain the flow of a sentence. If you listen to English, it sounds connected (rather than "stop start, stop start").

Linking is also something that your mouth does almost automatically for you, so it's an easy way for you to improve your pronunciation without having to think too much about it. The key is to keep going when you speak – don't pause between words.

Practise saying these sentences at a normal speed.
