Needless to say, pronunciation is important for language learning. If your pronunciation is good, you will always impress people, and they will communicate willingly with you even with the limited vocabulary or grammar. If your pronunciation is terrible, people might have trouble understanding you, and most likely they will not be willing to communicate.

Pronunciation is more like a physical skill. You must train the muscles of your face, mouth, and neck to work correctly. The best way to do it is to train like an athlete or a musician. In other words, pronunciation requires training!  If you want to be understood by people, why don’t you work on your pronunciation.
