Pronunciation is the bridge between you and other speakers, especially the native speakers.
Learning pronunciation not only enables you to sound more natural, but also gets your verbal messages across clearly. Additionally, learning pronunciation will help you to listen to English better because you learn to identify and recognize sounds that other people make.
Since English has vowels that may not exist in your language, it can be difficult for you to speak clearly in English, or to understand what the native speakers say.
