有些人覺得發音很重要
Some think pronunciation is important

有些人覺得不太重要,你們覺得呢?
Some people don’t think it’s important. What do you guys think?

1.美國(男)

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

As long as you can communicate, I think that’s what matters most.
但我覺得能跟別人溝通才是最重要的

2.德國(女)

I think pronunciation is important.
我覺得發音很重要

Because it’s easier for the listener if he doesn’t need to think all the time about what you wanna say.
因為聽的人就不用很辛苦的去猜你到底想要講什麼

3.愛爾蘭(男)

Ireland and England, we pronunce a lot of words the same way where as Americans, a lot of words, they both pronunce and spell differently.
愛爾蘭跟英國很多字的唸法一樣,但美國那邊就很多字的唸法跟拼法都不同

But then American English tends to be the English that’s taught internationally, including here in Taiwan.
但偏偏美國英文又是全球英語教學的指標,包括台灣

4.拉脫維亞(女)

Pronunciation is super important because that’s something Chinese has taught me. If you can’t pronunce it correctly, no one’s gonna understand you.
發音超重要的!我學中文的時候發現如果發音不準,根本沒人聽得懂你講什麼

5.英國(男)

We have so many different accents and some of the London dialect some of the northern dialects and some of the western dialects for example.
我們有很多不同的口音和方言,比如倫敦方言和一些北方及西方的不同方言

It can be like talking to somebody who doesn’t speak the same language as you.
反而覺得很像你在跟其他國家的人聊天一樣

So I... thoroughly believe that pronunciation matters.
所以我完全相信發音非常重要

6.波蘭(女)

The most important part is being understandable.
最重要的部份是「能被了解」

Because sometimes people are so focused on speaking words the correct way
因為很多人很想把字詞唸對

and it blocks them. They prefer not to speak at all because they are afraid of making mistakes.
這種想法反而讓他們更害怕去講一些他們覺得會唸錯的字

And I think that’s the problem which Asian people have like you are so afraid of making mistakes.
我發現很多亞洲人真的很怕發音不對

7.美國(男)

When I was growing up, I actually grew up around a lot of non native English speakers
我從小身邊就是圍繞很多英文不是他們母語的人

and I don’t think pronunciation is important at all as long as I can make out what you are trying to say.
只要我能猜到他們想講的意思,我覺得發音準不準就不是那麼重要

I’m trying to understand your meaning; I’m trying to communicate with you.
我會試著了解你的意思因為我想跟你溝通

Puzzle out or try to pick out mistakes you are making as you are speaking to me.
並不是想要你用英文跟我溝通的時候挑你的錯誤

<範例>

“I’m hungry.”
男:我很餓

See! He is not “angry”. He is “hungry”.
女:你看!他其實不是「生氣」,他是「很餓」。

Because French people tend to not pronunce “h” in front of a word.
因為有些法國不太會唸h的音

So like when he’s hungry, he’ll say I’m angry.
所以當他說他很餓,聽起來像他很氣~

(So this is why pronunciation is so important.)
(這也就是為什麼發音非常重要)
