    English is my second language but my main as well as my first one is frozen in terms of development and stuff because I mostly talk to English speakers. Even though i've lived here most of my life, I seem to have trouble pronouncing some words. whenever there's a hard word that my tongue seem to not want to do i avoid that word completely for an easier synonym, it's strange because i feel like my asian accent kicks in when i say particular words...dont know where i get this asian accent from because i did learn english when i was 5.

    for example, words like London just twist my tongue up. any tips on how to improve pronunciation?
    I moved from london to wales and only noticed this issue when i moved, could it be the change in accents i'm living around in or something?

    it's probably the change in accent and environment, you'll just have to listen to how people say it around you and get used to that pronunciation
