Pronunciation is not that important as long as the other person generally gets the idea of what you are saying.
只要對方大致上能懂你想表達的意思,發音就不是那麼重要

I think it’s more important that people you know, try to use new words, try to use new phrases.
比較重要的是大家要敢用新詞彙和新片語

Rather than being overly concerned about whether or not they are saying a word correctly.
而不是一直擔心有沒有發的很標準

I mean eventually yeah sure, you want to learn how to pronunce words correctly but
但是當然學久了你還是要想辦法唸標準一點
