Abstract

In the process of English acquisition, Chinese as mother tongue exerts an irresistible impact on English phonetics. Data shows that 50% of undergraduate English majors are disturbed by mother tongue in learning English pronunciation and intonation, while around 80% of undergraduate non-English majors are affected. Thus, it is found that the reason why the mistakes in English pronunciation and intonation are difficult to correct is that college and university students have been deeply rooted in the native tone, making their ability to distinguish other sound systems reduced. In this paper, how to take relevant measures in learning and better learn English phonetics is further introduced.
