How to improve English Pronunciation?

English is my only language, although whenever I see a new word I seem to sometimes pronounce it wrong. Should I just look up how to pronounce words on the internet when I don't know or learn the rules of pronunciation better, in which I never paid attention to. Any advice/links will help!

    You should learn the rules of pronunciation.

    Reading will help. When you read a lot you become better and better at the language. You'll see the patterns (although a lot of words you'd have to hear to know how to pronounce it). Definitely look up pronunciations on the internet. It's really quick and easy. Online dictionaries have the buttons you can push to hear it pronounced.

    No one knows how to pronounce an English word unless he or she has heard the word spoken. We all just take a guess based on what we know of pronunciation patterns, stress, context, etc. Sometimes we get it right, sometimes not. Seriously, even educated speakers cannot know every word. Do not worry about it.
