How do you remember the correct pronunciation of words?

Congratulations – you have learned to pronounce new words! But how do you remember the correct pronunciation for next time?

When I was hosting the TV show ETHNICITY, I had to remember the correct pronunciation of so many names of people from so many different countries. And – I had to say them perfectly the first time on national TV. Scary! Here is my secret – first – find out the correct pronunciation by asking a trusted adviser. Say it out loud at least 10 times so you can hear yourself and also memorize the feeling of the sounds in your mouth. In a couple of hours do this again – and then again. After the third rehearsal you will almost definitely have it memorized.
