Difficult English Words to Pronounce

While going for an interview there are few things that matter a lot such as your appearance, outlook, confidence as well as English speaking skills, more appropriately saying, your grammar and pronunciation. It is very important to learn some difficult vocabulary words and know to pronounce them properly. English is becoming a very important part of our daily lives while communicating. If you want to admission in some good college or are preparing for a job, English plays a very important role in each and every competitive exam. There is no way one can get through these exams without having a proper and deep knowledge in English.
Here are some tips that can help you increase your vocabulary as well as improve your pronunciation.


Read newspaper regularly:


This is the very first step in improving your English. Reading newspaper would be helpful to you in multiple ways. You would get to know about the current topics, get to learn new words, would be able to understand the pattern of writing, grammatical rule, sentence formation and this would enrich your vocabulary. If at first you don’t like reading the whole paper, make a point to read the editorial pages. These would help a lot and with passing time you can make it a habit to read the whole paper.

Make your vocabulary strong:


No one can impress an interviewer more than a person who has a strong vocabulary. Also this would be very helpful during competitive exams where there is a whole section dedicated to test the candidate’s vocabulary. Make a habit of reading at least ten new words from the dictionary before going to sleep and try to use them next day while communicating. This will slowly but gradually improve your vocabulary as well as speaking skills. Now one doesn’t even needs a dictionary as several apps are available in smart phones.
