Pronunciation 3

 

Notice that the graphs give you a lot more information on your pronunciation than just the scores you achieve. You can compare your intonation to the native speaker (the thin line), speed, and volume (the spiky waveform). Of course there is not a single correct way to pronounce any language, and not all native speakers will have the same patterns. But you can use the visual information to understand the syllable length (mora) and rising or falling tones which are appropriate for a particular word or phrase.

Don't keep trying to practice until you can match the model exactly, but learn what to listen for.
