Simplify your pronunciation

My name is Masi. I immigrated to Canada in 2015.

After listening to your podcast titled “ simplify your pronunciation” I realized the reason why, even after years of listening to radio and podcasts, I still struggle with pronouncing certain words and expressions like "cloths,", next person," and "just saying”, to mention a few.

English is not my main language, and despite my efforts, I haven't been successful in finding a job due to my lack of fluency.

I'd appreciate it if you could create more podcasts about pronunciation, similar to "Simplify Your Pronunciation."

Thank you for sharing your skills with us, and I'm grateful for your time and generosity.

Regards,
Masi
