American English Pronunciation Problems for Filipinos

If you are originally from the Philippines, you may be experiencing some problems with your American spoken English.

Don’t blame yourself!  It’s just that Filipino English is a bit different than the English we speak in America.

Specific pronunciation problems for Filipinos include:

  • the schwa vowel sound
  • how to use voiced consonant sounds such as the  /z/, /b/ & /v/ sounds
  • articulation of the TH sounds

In my accent reduction coaching program, I’ve found that American style intonation is also new for Filipino English speakers.

When I’ve worked with Tagalog speakers in my coaching program, they’ve always appreciated learning about how intonation can bring their speech to life! ♬
