how to train your mouth to pronounce English words like native speakers???

everybody knows that every language has it's own ways of pronouncing words.

This make too difficult for the people who speak certain language to copy with English pronunciation.

Other people stress every English word and make their spoken english hard to understand, while others fail to pronounce words at all and make their spoken english sound like their native languages.

I am 100% sure that there is somebody out there knows a little secret that can help anyone sound like native speaker easly.

I am looking forward to hear your sectrets soon.

Hi Seif, that's a very fair question.  One advantage of learning English is that there is a lot of helpful information and materials online.  For example, look up videos with the keywords "pronunciation th english" and you'll find instructional videos.

 

It's a great resource we have today! :)

 

I think Bruce's suggestions are exceptionally useful, not only for pronunciation and rhythm, but also the culture of English. Sure, they are "children's" songs, but all native English speakers grow up singing them! :)

 Here are some examples to get you started:

 

These will help your speaking practice.

"Handy Pandy"

Handy Pandy, Jack-a-dandy,
Loves plum cake and sugar candy.
He bought some at a grocer's shop,
And out he came, hop, hop, hop!

----------------------------------------------------------

"Hey! diddle, diddle..."
by Mother Goose

Hey! diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

----------------------------------------------------------------

"Jack be Nimble"

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Jack jump over
The candlestick.

---------------------------------------------------------------

"Patty Cake"

Patty cake, patty cake baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can
Roll the dough and mark it with "B"
And throw it in the oven for baby and me

------------------------------------------------------------

"Humpty Dumpty"

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the King's horses and all the King's Men,

Couldn't put Humpty together again.

------------------------------------------------------------

The Ten O'Clock Scholar

A diller, a dollar, a ten o'clock scholar!
What makes you come so soon?
You used to come at ten o'clock,
But now you come at noon.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
