Please give me some advice on my oral English

Hello everyone,
From now on I’ll constantly upload some voice messages here in the forum.
Please give me some advice on my oral English. Thanks in advance.

  1. You pronounce “favorite” with three syllables, when it really has only two [feivrɪt], not [fevorɪt].

  2. You are pronouncing [h] as it is pronounced in Chinese. You need to open your throat and let the air pass with no resistance.

  3. You don’t pronounce the diphthongs in words like “I” and “they”. You say [a] and [ðɛ] instead of [ai] and [ðei].

  4. You need to practice linking between words. For example, when you say “I often”, you say [aʔofɛn] with a glottal stop, but it should be [ayofən].

̪5. At the end of a word or syllable, you pronounce [n] as [ŋ]. For example, for “unlucky” you say [ʌŋləki], when it should be [ʌnləki]. This is a very common, stubborn mistake among Chinese. They say “gong” instead of “gone”, and “sing” instead of “sin”. So you can see that this mistake often causes them to say completely the wrong word.

For Shairlyn 2612: Pay more attention to the intonation of the whole sentence, I think you concentrate on the pronunciation of each word too much, make your sentence sound connected

Please make comments on my pronunciation.
