How To Learn Pronunciation

1. Identify A Very Specific Result That You Want

To improve, you must have a very clear goal. General goals such as “I want to have better English pronunciation” have no power. You need a much more specific goal.

For example, pick your favorite American actor or actress and decide to speak like them. Your goal might be, “I will speak exactly like George Cloony”. This goal is much more powerful because it is very specific.

2. Choose A Deadline

Goals are powerless without a timeline. You must choose a specific date when you will accomplish your pronunciation goal. Your goal, therefore, might be: “I will speak exactly like George Cloony by June 4, 2009″.

3. Find A Lot of Compelling Reasons For Your Goal

As Anthony Robbins says, “if you can find enough ‘why’s’, you will easily find the how’s”. In other words, if you are very motivated, you will find a way to succeed. Motivation (psychology) is more important than method.

It’s not enough to have a goal. You must make that goal emotionally powerful. You must have very powerful reasons.. a long list. So, you need to brainstorm. Imagine all of the incredible benefits that will come to you as a result of having excellent pronunciation. Find powerful emotional reasons. Also, imagine all of the terrible results of failing.

Your list might include:

I’ll get a fantastic job and make a lot of money because my English speech is so clear!

I’ll meet beautiful American girls, have a lot of dates, and find an amazing girlfriend because my spoken English is so fantastic!

The important thing to do is to find the reasons that are powerful for you. Exaggerate them. Imagine the best possible consequences!

4. Take Massive Action

You have a very specific English pronunciation goal. You have a deadline. You have a long list of emotionally compelling reasons.

Now it’s time for action. Create a massive action plan. Here’s what I recommend:

Buy a few movies that have your favorite actor or actress.

Each day, watch one scene of the movie. Play the scene a few times with subtitles… and listen carefully to the actor’s intonation (the rise, fall, and rhythm of his/her speech).

Next, rewind and play just one sentence. Pause and copy the actor’s speech. Copy it EXACTLY. Copy the rhythm. Copy the volume. Copy the pauses. Copy the emotion.

Also, copy the actor’s gestures. Move your body exactly like they do. Copy their facial expressions exactly. Copy their posture. Remember, your goal is to look, act, and speak exactly like them.

Follow this system for 20-30 minutes every day.

5. Measure & Celebrate

After a few months of using this system, it’s time to measure yourself. Play a scene from a movie with your actor in it. Then pause it– copy the actor’s speech AND record yourself. Record yourself speaking the same scene.

Next, rewind your recording and play it. Then rewind the movie scene and play it. Listen to both and decide– how close are you to the actor? What is different about your speech and theirs? What are you doing well?

Use this measurement to adjust your focus…. then continue using the system everyday.

Finally, when your deadline comes and you succeed– be sure to celebrate! Have a party! Go crazy! Fill yourself with happy, excited, grateful emotions. This will increase your motivation and will help you continue to improve as you move to your next goal.

In my opinion, this is how to learn English pronunciation most effectively, most enjoyably, and most efficiently.

Rough draft on the events :(there are gonna b 10 events n v host n organize 4 of that )
[**these r jus drafts n anything can b changed at any time this is just for reference purpose]

1.Dumb-c:("let ur body speak for u")

*there r gonna b three rounds
preliminary: every team will b given a film name, the selected will move to the pre finals.
pre-finals:every team will b given a company name n its caption like "hutch" --- "we follow wherever u go" the one must act n others must follow .

rules r simple any one from a team can act
*they should not move his lips
*there ill b a time limit
*and anything can b disqualified from any rounds if judges("thats us people") say so.

three prizes:

Its a nice event in this there will b a team(10 members) in this event v will suffle all the contestants n make teams out of unknown peoples,
there is gonna b only one round

And the team is not ur own frnds it will some new persons u dont know b4.And after this v ill give each team a 10 mins time in this period they hav to talk among them and know abt each others strength n weakness. Then the team leader ill b called to stage and he ill b given a situation like"preform an act about ur teams common strength" n they must instantly "perform it without any further discussion"

rules r simple
*they should co-operate n communicate with their team
*there ill b a time limit
*and any team can b disqualified from any rounds if judges("thats us people") say so.

three prizes:

our work:
just to think abt some nice n good situations like for example: i hav situation like
"perform on ur common interest"
"perform on ur common weakness"
"propose to a boy u like in ur team"(ha ha ha .... jus joking)
"start a quarrel between ur team "(for this u must know wat ur other team members hate)

4.Marketing event:("if u hav skill,u can sell ice to Eskimos")
Its a nice event in here they ill hav to market a product given to them with some catchy lines n new way of approach

there is gonna b only one round

the team(1-5 members) will b given a product they will b given a 15 mins time to prepare and anyone from their team must come to stage n market the product given to him. looks simple rite

rules r simple
*this is mainly to test their marketing skills n creativity
*there ill b a time limit
*and any team can b disqualified from any rounds if judges("thats us people") say so.

three prizes:

our work:
there is a lot of work for us to do in this event so frnds prepare something on a product and u must also collect all the information about it so that u can ask the contestants ...
like if u choose the product as "laptop" you hav to hav a clear idea about it so that u can ask questions like wats "the configuration","does it hav a blue tooth port" and "will it support WI-FI"...
