In this final episode of Better Speaking, William and Jean discuss how Chinese learners can make their words sound a bit more natural.

British people are used to hearing learners speaking English. But as one student at Malvern House school in London describes, they still sometimes find it difficult to understand Chinese speakers of English.

Jean demonstrates the best way for you to practise your English pronunciation. Then William discusses word choice and spoken grammar, all things that will help you towards... Better Speaking!

This week's tips include:

• Do focussed pronunciation practice using the www.bbcukchina.com website.

• Use contractions where possible, e.g. say 'don't' instead of 'do not'.

• Think about which words to use when speaking. For example, it sounds more natural to use phrasal verbs in conversation.

Listen to the programme to find out more about these tips.
