1.More listen and copy the intonation of the sentence
To sound like a native speaker, it is not so important to pronounce each sound correctly, as to pronounce the whole rhythm, the whole intonation of the sentence as a native speaker. Try to copy their tone. Each person pronounces sounds a bit different way, especially in China, where there are so many different dialects. However, the rhythm, the melody of the sentence is always the same.
2.More read aloud
The most important thing while learning the languages is to read aloud. Often when we look through the text, we know the meaning of words, how to translation the whole sentence, but when you need to say it out loud, we are not so confident anymore. The more you say the same word out loud, the easier it will be to remember it and the easier it will be for you to pronounce it.
3.record and listen to your pronunciation
No one likes hearing the way his voice sounds on tape recorder, but this is one of the best ways to hear mistakes and try to correct them. Listen to one sentence of the audio text then record your voice on tape while reading this sentence, then you also can record a whole text/ Compare the difference between the pronunciation of the voice from the audio text and your pronunciation. When you hear yourself from the outside, you can more objectively assess your pronunciation.
4.Listen to single words and write down their Pinyin with tone
Just take any textbook in Chinese with an audio CD, turn on the record and write what you hear, then you can check yourself on the text. You can start with one word, then listen and write phrases or even whole sentences. It will not only help to improve your listening and memory, but also help with your pronunciation. If you can write everything correctly, you will be able to hear the Chinese speech more clearly and hear more clearly what is the difference between your pronunciation and the Chinese pronunciation.
5.Directly ask about it
Sure, you have some Chinese friends or teachers, even if not, you can always find native speakers in only lessons which is not expensive, or find a language partner. Then ask them directly what do they think about your pronunciation, do you have a strong accent and so on. Perhaps this is a pretty hard and a little embarrassing method. But none better than the Chinese themselves will not tell you what is the difference between your and their pronunciation. Even if they answer that everything is fine, insist on your own, ask what else you can improve. Their answer will tell you where to move on and what to work on, besides your Chinese friends can also help you with this.
