Share Don't Look Foolish Speaking English
2017-2-24 02:34
English is like most other languages when it comes to pronunciation. I see a lot of so-called, 'pronunciation experts' trying to teach English pronunciation who are nothing more than someone who wants to be esteemed as a teacher and get your money. They have Chinese students doing a lot of silly exercises by telling them things like 'curl your tongue' or 'purse you lips' or 'open your mouth wide'.
