I talk to him regularly to learn how to master English. As he is a teacher who teaches Japanese at school, I also can ask him about how to teach Japanese to my Skype friends.
I want to improve my English pronunciation for a while and he checked my pronunciation yesterday.
Although my Skype friends check my pronunciation, I sometimes don't understand why mine is wrong.
However, I could understood the course clearly because he explained it in Japanese.
He also taught me the rules of English pronunciation and explained how different from the pronunciations between American accents and British accents are.
As his explanation was stupendous, I could understood very well.
When I talked to my best friend today, I also asked him to check my pronunciation. When he explains about the words which I can't pronounce, for example like 'entrepreneur', he showed me the words which he divides into syllables. It was very helpful to pronunciation for me. Because when I couldn't pronounce English words, I always wrote Japanese katakana below the words and read it with text. As a result of that, I likely pronounced English like katakana English.
After my Japanese friend checked my pronunciation, he told me that my pronunciation isn't so bad that I can develop it.
I believe his words and I will practice my weak points until I will talk to him two weeks later.
