Learning pronunciation is important not only to speak correctly but to understand better and improve your listening comprehension. There are different techniques to improve English pronunciation overall and one is with the use of the phonemic symbols
The most common symbols used are the IPA (International Phonemic Alphabet). By knowing the sound that the symbols represent we can improve our English pronunciation because we know exactly how a word is pronounced by just reading the symbols. Many times students depend on teachers to know how a word is pronounced but with the use of symbols we can just use a normal English to English dictionary and practice the pronunciation of the word.
