Use voice-over techniques to improve your pronunciation

If somebody tells you to “stick a cork in it,” don’t take it as a compliment. The expression “stick a cork in it” is just another way of saying “shut up.” But there is one case in which sticking a cork in your mouth has its benefits. This technique can strengthen your communication skills by improving your articulation.

Author and voice-over actor James Alburger teaches a good way to improve articulation in his book The Art of Voice Acting, and variations of this technique have been around ever since the Greek orator Demosthenes put pebbles in his mouth to improve his own communication skills.

Here’s how it works: stick a cork between your front teeth as if it were a cigar. Don’t have a cork? Use your thumb. Now, read a passage of text out loud. Read slowly and pronounce ev-ery syl-la-ble. Really work your mouth. When you’re done, remove the cork and read the passage again. Do the words sound clearer and easier to understand?

Revised from an article published in Speak Up issue 264

    Very good tip!
    I didn’t know this speaking technique. And I will use it from now on.
    By the way, is there any tip to improve the comprehension? That’s the most difficult to me. I am trying to watch movies and TV programs in English, with or without subtitles, listen to musics while reading the lyrics, and so on, but even in this way it’s being so difficult to me. Maybe I am having problems to concentrate on what the person is saying.

    Thanks again for all your contributions to this blog!
    Hugs!
