It is helpful for all English learner like me. Even though I studied how to pronounce the basic English vowel, I often ignored it while speaking as my English level developed. Keeping to focus on my English pronunciation is tiring and stressful. To communicate with new people much more smoothly, I want to make my level higher but didn't put any particular effort so far. It's absolutely meaningful to check my sounds regularly.

1. After "all" we use plural nouns.
It's good that you have identified your weakness and you are thinking of ways to improve them. What do you do to improve your pronunciation skills?

Although I recognized that what my weakness in English was, I didn't practice so much to improve my skill. What I should do for my better pronunciation is to record my voice while I'm speaking without scripts and then to check whether it is natural to keep listening. Also, I should ask English native speakers in order to understand my mistakes that often overlooked. Can you recommend me a study method to achieve a higher level?

1. I simplified this sentence since it is more natural this way.
2. You need to use the auxiliary verb "to be" in order to form the Passive Voice correctly.
I always advice my students to listen to English music or watch English movies. You can be entertained and learn at the same time.

That is true. Watching an English movie helps me learn how a native speaker uses his language in his daily life. But how can I do know whether the way I pronounce it is right while I watch a movie?

1. When you use modal verbs like "can/should/may" you don't need to use "do/does".
Usually, when you watch English movies, since the characters speak in their natural voice, it exercises your listening skills. Most of the time, their pronunciation is accurate. The accent varies though depending which country they are from. It's a bit tricky but you'll definitely see how native speakers converse.

Exactly. With the subtitle of a movie, it much helpful to understand what they said. I often enjoy watching an American movie or news on Youtube.

One of my English leaner friends uses a Siri on iPhone as checking how accurate his pronunciation is. What do you think? Is it a good method to learn English?

1. When generally speaking we use plural and no articles.
2. "to use something TO DO something else", the full infinitive form is required here
Well I'm not so sure about it since I haven't tried that one. Also Siri sounds robotic, it doesn't sound natural. Well, there are some very good Youtube channels that can really help you improve your pronunciation like Rachel English. You'll learn so many things in there about pronunciation.

You are right. Even though the voice recognition technology is developing nowadays, I think Siri is not accurate enough as a learning tool. Communicating in English is the best way to check our weakness of the pronunciation. The reaction from a listener helps us understand which part of our English is hard to catch.

Thank you for sharing information on Youtube channel. I will check them soon.

1. Use the definite article since you are referring to the channel the teacher has mentioned previously.
2. There is only one channel the teacher mentioned, so you should use singular, "it".
