Mastering English grammar isn't easy. It's normal to make a mistake in any speech---mispronouncing a particular word, ending a sentence with a preposition, using sentence fragments, etc. Although these minor mistakes can be harmless in a conversation amongst friends and family, it can make a big difference in your career or a career opportunity.
The attached video features some clips from Everybody Loves Raymond. Ray Barone may have become a successful sports columnist; however, his speech and pronunciation could use some more work, wouldn't you agree?
