  • It depends on how diligently you do the practice and follow up assignments. Forming new habits takes motivation, focus, time, and dedication. Old habits are hard to change, but he more you practice, the more you’ll improve. You simply must practice a sound or pattern over and over for it to become habitual. Daily practice will help your mouth and tongue develop the new ‘muscle memory’ that they need for you to articulate American English sounds correctly.

This helps you sharpen your listening skills to improve your speech.
  • It depends on your enthusiasm. It helps if you are very enthusiastic about learning the differences in your second language and enjoy the process of learning.
