Today, I would like to talk about why muscle training is necessary for pronunciation correction and the relationship between English pronunciation and muscle training.
"I want to be able to speak English cool!"
The meaning of those who say that is that they want to be able to pronounce like a native speaker.
However, it is not easy for Japanese to pronounce English correctly.
There are many pronunciation correction books and apps on the market, but I think there are many people who are in trouble because their pronunciation does not improve no matter how much they are used.
In fact, all you need to pronounce English is "muscle training"!
The muscles used by English-speaking people and Japanese-speaking people are different!
First, English and Japanese use different muscles when speaking.
You may be wondering, but it's definitely a muscle story.
We Japanese are not aware that we are using muscles when speaking Japanese. However, when speaking, he continues to use the muscles of the tongue and throat in addition to the mouth.
Why don't you realize that you are using muscles?
People who do muscle training on a regular basis can understand it, but if you do the same muscle training every day, you will gradually not feel muscle pain!
However, when you do muscle training for the first time, you should feel irresistible muscle pain the next day.
It's the same thing as this.
Because we use the same muscles every day, we no longer have muscle aches and we don't think, "Oh, I talked and used my muscles."
And English speakers use muscles to speak English, and the parts and movements of those muscles are very different from those when speaking Japanese!
To improve English pronunciation, you should be aware of "muscle"
If you really want to correct your English pronunciation, you need to strengthen your muscles to speak English.
It may seem difficult to strengthen the muscles, but this is exactly the same as the muscle training of the body.
Try sticking your tongue forward and keeping it.
Many people may feel that it is "hard!" Or "painful!"
That's because you're trying to force yourself to use muscles you haven't used before.
For English-speaking people, it is difficult for us Japanese to be nothing more than "repeated movements without being aware of it every day." If you understand this, you will understand why Japanese pronunciation in English is difficult.
First, let's be aware of muscle movements!
That is the biggest point of pronunciation correction.
Professional guidance is essential for muscle training for pronunciation correction
Now that you've told us that muscle training is essential for pronunciation correction, you're probably wondering, "But how do you do muscle training?"
There are many pronunciation correction books and apps that specialize in pronunciation, but it's hard to find one that teaches you how to train your muscles.
So, I try to pronounce it as I write it in the book, but it doesn't work.
As far as the muscle training of pronunciation correction is concerned, there is a limit to self-education.
We need a professional who can teach us the details of what to move and what muscles we are using at that time.
Discovering Sounds thoroughly researches the tongue, lips, and mouth area necessary for English pronunciation, and conducts "native muscle exercise", an original training to train the muscles necessary for English pronunciation.
By focusing on learning this "native muscle", you will be able to acquire the basic ability to pronounce the same as a native speaker.
How do you feel when you actually try the muscle training of the mouth and tongue?
There are so many things you can notice when you train your pronunciation correction under the guidance of a professional.
・ I can't move my tongue as I was told
・ My throat gets tired
・ I can't control my lips at will
You may be confused at first because these things that you don't care about when you speak Japanese happen all at once.
But at the same time
"Oh, that's why my pronunciation was always Japanese and English."
You can also notice.
Since muscle training is just muscle training, you may feel tired and sometimes you may feel pain like muscle pain the next day.
However, it is also evidence that muscle training is done correctly.
The muscle training of the body is the same, isn't it?
If you have muscle soreness in your quadriceps the day after you squat, it's evidence that you've squat correctly.
The same applies to the muscle training of the mouth, tongue, and throat.
Even if you repeat it two days a day, you cannot see the results of muscle training visibly.
The important thing is to repeat the muscle training in the right way.
What happens if I repeat muscle training?
Now, all you need to correct your pronunciation is muscle training! But what happens when you repeat muscle training?
First of all, when you pronounce English, the movement around your mouth will be smooth and you will be able to pronounce it easily.
People who used to take a long time to speak because they were conscious of the movement of their mouth will be able to speak in a natural way.
Next, the pronunciation of the spoken English is different than before, and it is closer to the sound "I wanted to make this kind of sound!".
This may be easier to understand if you record and listen.
If you are starting muscle training for the purpose of correcting English pronunciation, we strongly recommend that you first record your pronunciation at this point.
Make a note to compare before and after pronunciation correction!
It will take some time before these results can be seen.
However, it is possible to accelerate the speed at which results can be achieved by learning the correct method from a professional and voluntarily practicing at home in the gap time.
Summary: Muscle training is essential to improve your English pronunciation!
What did you think.
Many of you may have heard for the first time that "muscle training" was necessary to correct English pronunciation.
Certainly, muscle training is done by the body, and it is difficult to imagine doing it with the muscles around the face and mouth.
However, in order to pronounce English like a native speaker, it is natural that you need to be able to use your muscles like an English speaker. In that case, it means that you should continue muscle training and strengthen muscles that you do not normally use!
Muscle training is difficult to continue alone.
That's why it's easier to stay motivated by keeping track of your own growth process while continuing to receive professional guidance!
