Do not let this happen to you. Many jobs require a minimum score on TOEFL iBT or TOEIC speaking before getting hired: intelligible pronunciation = high TOEFL iBT score = admissions to a top-notch university = getting a lucrative salary at your dream job! Any questions?
There are two difficulties with which you may be having trouble, both of which will prevent you from reaching near-native speaker fluency. (1)You may not be dividing your speech into thought groups. (2)You may not be blending the words within each of your thought groups. Both of these problems could be a direct result of your unfamiliarity with vowel and consonant sounds as well as your not knowing how to identify thought groups or when to blend.
But knowing you have a problem with either thought groups or blending is not enough. You need to solve these problems before you can reach near-native speaker fluency. First, you will need to make sure that you can accurately pronounce all the vowel and consonant sounds so that you do not have to pause unnecessarily. In addition, you need to have a good familiarity with sound and spelling patterns. Third, you need to learn how to group meaningful thoughts. Finally, within those thoughts, you will need to learn which words should be blended together for a natural sounding speech that everyone around you will love.
