Don't worry. Basically, MTI is the major problem we
experience during the Interveiw session.
To remove or eliminate the MTI factor in your
communication, you have to do different types of practices.
I suggest you to daily read any English paper for 15
minutes loudly. Repeat this execise and you will observe
the changes in your communication.
I'm not telling, it will completely remove the MTI thing in
your comm. Also, get a phonetic dictionary for yourself.
Keep it with you evertime - when you watch television, read
newspapers. Try to learn the pronunciation with the sounds
shown in the phonetic dictionary. I've also had this
problem. I was very curious to overcome and sound good.
I've done types of execises and it really helped me.
Make sure you speak slowly and read slowly and do justice
with the punctuations.
Pratice the pronunciations by understanding the sound
system of the words.
Last but not the least, you are you and no body can say you
are not you. So, be confident and be yourself.
Don't distract yourself looking at others who speaks good
I'm sure, if you are confident and pratice the above
exercises daily without missing it for a day like your
food. You will sound great and "WHO IS THIS MTI?" would be

Answer / kamal manchanda
First of all to overcome MTI( Mother Tongue Influence, we
need to know why ,ost of Indians are suffering from this
issue. When I had a word with some Voice and Accent trainer
of known International BPOs then i came to know about the
reason that its all is becuase Indian langauges doesnot
require the more expansion of mouth during prunciating the
words while in English language there is alot of
requirement of mouth to be opened to prperply prunciate the
word. So to get rid of MTI, one is requried to become
habitual of opening mouth to a bit than as used to before.
To do this arrange a rookm where u alone can get practice,
then place your's own two-three fingers in vertical
position b/w the teeeths and speak the English words. No
doubt it can be funny, cheap to anybody, but its a big idea
to overcome MTI and have a great Accent.
