IMPROVING YOUR PRONUNCIATION WITH MOVIES

IMPROVE YOUR ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION USING A CLASSIC MOVIE

Do you want to improve your pronunciation of English?

It will help you in your career if you can achieve that goal.

Speaking English correctly will often help you get a better job.

I believe watching movies or films with English subtitles will help your listening, speaking and reading skills.

Particularly if you analyse the film carefully and imitate the speakers in the movie.

Structures and patterns of English speaking can be learned while watching films. Just as we did when we were learning our native language by listening to our parents at home.

By the age of three we had memorized complex grammatical structures, all without looking at a grammar book. Obviously, it is similar for learning English later in life. The more we listen carefully to and practice English, the faster we will progress.


I am proposing to you, to analyse an excellent film together.

This film is ideal for improving your pronunciation. It is about an English professor who teaches a woman how to pronounce English correctly. This involves some English pronunciation exercises. She too is hoping that if she can improve her English pronunciation, she will get a better job.


The film is called Pygmalion (A classic early version of My fair lady). It is the 1938 version found on YouTube. The film can be stopped at any time to examine the rich vocabulary in the subtitles. The link is provided below.

I have written a program of three lessons. You can try one lesson to see how you get on. There are exercises with questions to make sure you have the correct understanding of the events in the film. I will be able to help you with the vocabulary/grammar and at the same time help you to improve your pronunciation of the English language.

Pygmalion 1938.

I have a neutral English accent, easily understood anywhere in the English speaking world.

So let's get working together. If you like to book a lesson with me, please book through Verbling. My name is Patrick Randall.

About me. I was born in a town in Kent, England. When I was 26, I moved to London where I ran my own business and started teaching English to foreign students in the College of Central London. There I taught English to students from all over the world. We helped students develop their English reading, writing and speaking skills. This enabled them to pass their exams. Later, I taught employability at the University of Westminster in the center of London. I helped the students prepare to get that top job, by improving their interview, communication, and networking skills. I also helped them to target their CV’s/resumes, application forms and covering letters to their desired company. I now enjoy teaching English online. Me as a teacher. I have enjoyed teaching English for many years, helping students reach their full potential. I believe that using a company like Verbling where you are talking to a native speaker on a one to one basis, is one of the best ways to learn English. My experience enables me to identify quickly the strengths and weaknesses of my students. I like to teach the subjects that interest the students and enable them to reach their chosen objectives. My enthusiasm and regular commendation motivate the students to work hard so that they can make the fastest progress possible. My lesson + teaching style My lessons are structured according to the needs of the student. I can tailor the lessons to help the student to overcome faults in grammar or pronunciation. By helping the student to pronounce English correctly with a neutral accent, they will be able to be easily understood in all English-speaking countries. My lessons are tailored around a variety of lively subjects, the students will increase their vocabulary and find the lessons enjoyable. If, improvement in pronunciation is required, we can start with a series of phonetic exercises. I will teach them how to listen carefully and analyse sounds in the English language and how to imitate the correct pronunciation through guided repetition.
