In regards to his speaking capabilities, Nakano formerly had trouble pronouncing his vowels and consonant sounds. In addition, Nakano had trouble pronouncing words with appropriate stress and blending. For this reason, Nakano worked on to speak clearly lessons and did thousands of pronunciation drills enabling him to have extensive practice with vowel and consonant sounds. As such, Nakano learned helpful speaking skills such as instruction in the stress, intonation, and pausing. Because of this, Nakano improved his vowels and consonant sounds as well as his clarity in blending and word stress. Furthermore, Nakano was able to test and further improve his ability to pronounce words in English correctly and clearly by working on many integrated and independent practice tests.
