Speak English Naturally: My pronunciation secret for difficult words
 
14:08
Learn the important pronunciation technique called BACKCHAINING, used by actors, singers, and public speakers to sound more natural and authentic in any language. Backchaining will retrain your ears to hear and your mouth to pronounce English words more easily and successfully. It is especially useful for those long, difficult English words, but it is also helpful with any word you are struggling with. Most English teachers do not have time to teach you this simple strategy, but you can apply it immediately after watching this lesson. Famous language courses are based on this powerful pronunciation technique; watch, listen, and solve your pronunciation problems today! https://www.engvid.com/speak-english-naturally-backchaining/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. In this lesson you're going to learn a pronunciation secret that will help you to say English words more easily and correctly, especially long, difficult ones. Okay? Now, this is actually a professional technique that's used by actors, and singers, and linguists, and lots of people who have learned many different languages and want to or need to pronounce words correctly and authentically. Okay? Now, the reason why pronunciation is difficult for everyone when you're learning a new language is because when we grow up speaking our native language, we get used to... Our ears get used to hearing certain sounds, and our mouths get used to making certain sounds. And when we learn a new language, like English, then you have to train both your ear and your mouth to work a little bit differently. Okay? Now, the other part is because English is not phonetic, it's not completely phonetic. A large part of it is. Some people say about 80 to 85% is phonetic, but a lot of it is not phonetic. What does that mean? That means when we see a word, the way we say it is not the way it looks. Right? So, there's also that factor to take into account. But this technique can help you with both of these difficulties. Okay? So, first let's look at what we normally do when you're learning how to pronounce a word. Okay? So normally what we do is we do something called frontchaining, and I'm going to explain to you exactly what that is, but what I'm going to teach you in this lesson, the secret is something called backchaining, and that's what we will practice. Now, let's take our first example and do what people normally do, even teachers, even ESL teachers. All right? When they're teaching classrooms, they don't normally spend that much time on pronunciation because they don't have time. There's so much to teach and the class is so big, there's so many students it's difficult to spend time on pronunciation. So naturally, people have a harder time learning that and mastering that. And if you think about it, when a child is born and when a child is growing up, it doesn't learn to read first, it just learns by listening. So this is an opportunity to listen afresh, like new in a different way to words so that you can reproduce the correct sound, the correct pronunciation. Okay? So let's take our first example, and our first example is the word "pronunciation". Okay? Because by the way, a lot of people do not say this word correctly. Now, let's do it in the standard way, frontchaining, and see what happens. So in frontchaining, we start pronouncing or saying the word from the front and going forward. So if I did that, if I was teaching you how to say this word by using frontchaining, I would say to you: "You need to say it like this: pro-nun-ci-a-tion." Okay? I've divided up here just to make it a little bit easier for you to see and hear the syllables. Okay? This long word happens to have five parts, five syllables. Right? So it's quite long. Pronunciation. So when a student hears that, they're like: "Oh my god, I have to learn so many different sounds", and it's a little bit scary because there are five sounds, you know, that have to follow. So, what happens when you feel scared or nervous about something? Your brain shuts down. You don't learn as effectively. You don't learn as well as when you're happy and relaxed. So the advantage of learning in... Through the other system, the other technique called backchaining is that you feel much more relaxed because when we did it from the front we had to learn one, two, three, four, five different sounds. But look what happens when we use backchaining. So, backchaining is a technique that teaches you how to pronounce words starting from the end. So let's do that now and see what happens. So let's just take this last syllable, and we can say: "tion". So all you have to learn right now is the word "tion". Not word, part of the word. Next: "ation". You can repeat it after me. "ation, ciation, ciation, nunciation, nunciation". And last: "pronunciation, pronunciation".
The 4 Secrets of PERFECT PRONUNCIATION | Sound Like a Native Speaker

Learn how to speak English with PERFECT PRONUNCIATION. In this lesson, you will learn the four secrets to sound like a native speaker.

Transcript: Hi and welcome back. In this lesson, I will teach you the four secrets to speak English with perfect pronunciation. These are the same techniques that I have used to improve my own pronunciation, and I have seen them work for many of my students as well. So what are these four secrets? They are sound, stress, tone and rhythm. I will explain to you what these are and how you can master all of them to sound more like a native speaker. So number one is sound. When we write a word in English, we write it using letters. Take this word, for example – we write it with six letters. In the same way, when we pronounce a word, we do it using sounds. This word is pronounced /sku:l/. You see that the written form has six letters – ‘s’, ‘c’, ‘h’, ‘o’, ‘o’, ‘l’ but the spoken form has four sounds /s/, /k/, /u:/ and /l/. Every word in English has both consonant sounds like /g/, /l/, /t/, /s/ etc. and vowel sounds like /a:/, /ei/, /i:/, /ʊ/ and so on. Here’s another example: ‘women’. This word is written with five letters and it’s spoken with five sounds, but notice that both the ‘o’ and the ‘e’ are pronounced as short /i/ sounds - /wim.in/. This is because in English, the spelling and pronunciation of a word can be very different, and for this reason, whenever you say a word, you need to get the sounds right. If you try to simply read the spelling, you might go wrong. So you must use a dictionary to learn the correct pronunciation of words. I suggest that you use an online dictionary like Cambridge, Oxford or Merriam-Webster because that way, when you search for a word, you can see the pronunciation in phonetic symbols, and you can also click a button to hear the correct pronunciation. So here’s an action point for you: every day, learn the pronunciation of at least 5 words. Pick words that you’re not sure how to pronounce, look them up in an online dictionary. Play the audio on the website or app, and practice along with it. For each word, practice saying it correctly at least 5 times. This is my 5x5 method – practice the correct pronunciation of 5 words, 5 times every day. Secret number two is stress. What does it mean to stress something? Well it means to give it emphasis or importance. When we do this in pronunciation, it’s called word stress or syllable stress. Take the word ‘school’. You know there are four sounds but we don’t say /s/, /k/, /u:/, /l/. We say all the sounds together as one group – ‘school’. This grouping of sounds is called a syllable. In the word /’wim.in/ there are two syllables because there are two groups of sounds – /wim/ and /in/. If a word has two or more syllables, one syllable will always be stressed – that is, it will be given more importance than the others. In this word, notice that we stress the first syllable – /WIM-in/ – the apostrophe (the little mark before /wim/) indicates this. Here’s another word – ‘correct’. There are again two syllables – ‘ka’ and ‘rekt’ but in this word, we stress the second syllable - /rekt/. So /ka-REKT/. Notice how that stressed syllable is said with a slightly louder volume and it also sounds longer - /ka’rekt/. In this next word - how many syllables are there? There are three – ba- nan-a. Which is stressed –the second – ba-NAN-a. Here’s one final example. Three syllables again – af- ter-noon. This time, the third syllable is stressed, so /af-ter- NOON/. Like when we say Good afternoon. It is very important to stress words correctly, because otherwise your pronunciation will sound awkward and strange. But if you can do this well, then it will show your listeners that you have good English pronunciation. Now generally, it’s difficult for us to guess which syllable in a word is stressed. But there’s good news – when you look up a word in a dictionary, you will find that the stressed syllable is marked. Some dictionaries will show this as an apostrophe. Others will capitalize the stressed syllable. So when you learn the pronunciation of a word, you should learn to say the sounds correctly, but you also learn which syllable to stress. Number three is tone. Another name for this is intonation. This means the way our voices go up and down when we speak. So it refers to the changes in the pitch of our voice. Intonation exists in all the languages of the world but different languages use different tones.

How to sound like a native speaker: THE SECRET
 
09:43
Is there a secret to sounding like a native speaker? In today's lesson I'll share with you the key to PERFECT PRONUNCIATION! English pronunciation can be difficult to master, because it isn't a phonetic language -- that is, words are not pronounced the way they are spelled. In addition, American pronunciation and British pronunciation are very different from one another. So how can you sound like a native speaker? Watch this lesson to find out! http://www.engvid.com/how-to-sound-like-a-native-speaker-the-secret/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome again to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about pronunciation and phonetics. Now, I said there's going to be a secret on how to improve your pronunciation in English - here's the secret. Are you ready? There is no secret. It takes hard work, it takes practice, it takes perseverance. You have to do things, you have to practice things, you have to use your dictionary. You always have to keep working at it, that's the secret. But I'll give you a little bit of a tip on how to make this a little bit easier for yourself. Okay? What we have here is a list of words, each one looks very similar, but it has a different phonetic sound. Now, "phonetics" means the sound of the syllables in the word. "Syllables"... I'll just write that word here. A "syllable" is the sound part of a word. For example: the word "cat" has one syllable. The word "beautiful", "beau-ti-ful" - three syllables. Okay? So we're going to learn how to look at syllables, how to find the sound for each syllable in a word to know how to pronounce the full word. So we're going to start with these words because, again, these are very common words. These are words that all sound very similar, plus I had a request on www.engvid.com in the comment section on how to pronounce these. Let me say all these words first. "Look", "lock", "luck", "lack", "lake", "like", "lick", "leek", "Luke", "bloke", and "let". Now, "bloke" and "let" are obviously different words, but there's no such word as "loke" and there's no such word as "lek", so I had to improvise. But we have a bunch of other ones. Now, for some of you, a lot of these words sounded exactly the same I'm guessing. Right? They're not. They're very different. So "lock" and "luck" have completely different meanings. They have no relationship to each other except that they share one, two, three; one, two, three similar letters. "Aw", "ah", very similar vowel sound as well. So, what you notice above each of these words is the phonetic symbol. Now, there are different phonetic lists. Everybody has their own list. Find one that you like. I took these symbols from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, that's the American dictionary. If you want to find it online: www.m-w.com. It's a good dictionary and that's where I got these symbols from. Once you start studying phonetics, stick to one list. Okay? If you want to study British English, use a British dictionary; American English, use an American dictionary. Most of the words are going to be the same or similar; some of them will be completely different. So choose your dictionary, stick to it, practice. Now, if you look at these words in the dictionary on Merriam-Webster, you will find the phonetic spelling. The "phonetic spelling" means they spell the word according to its sound. So this "u" with a dot-I hope you can see that dot-"look", "uh". "Book", "took", "bull". It doesn't matter what the letters on either side are, the vowel sound is going to be the same with this symbol. With "lock", you have "a" with two dots on top of it. "Lock", "rock", "sock", "font". If you're not sure what a font is, if you have Microsoft Word or whatever typing tool you use, there are different fonts; Times New Roman, Agency, and Calibri, or whatever they're called. These are font, but the sound is "aw".

Judy Thompson, B.A., TESL Certification, professor, author and speaker is an expert in spoken English. A student herself of French and German, Judy knows firsthand the frustrations of learning to speak a new language. Judy lived and taught in South Korea and it was there that she had the first of many revelations about spoken English and how it should be taught. Newcomers are embarrassed about their accents and grammar mistakes and native speakers are unaware that the way they speak makes it extremely difficult for non-native speakers to understand them. Judy leads language classes for both native and non-native speakers to foster understanding and effective communication in our diverse community. A long time resident of Caledon, Ontario, Judy has four children and lives with her husband Richard on a beautiful ten-acre hobby farm. She is an environmental activist who enjoys hiking and skiing. In her spare time, she raises champion hunter show ponies.

Mouth exercises for CLEAR SPEECH
 
11:14
Learn the secret exercises actors use to speak with a clear and crisp voice. Improving your pronunciation and spoken English isn't just about learning theory. You can make yourself more understood by simply training your mouth muscles so that you can produce the sounds of English properly. After all, if you've been speaking another language your whole life, your mouth and tongue are probably trained in a different way, to make the sounds of that language, not English. In this video, I'll go through many exercises you can do to get your mouth used to making the sounds of English clearly. This will improve your accent, clarity, and make you a better English speaker. WATCH THESE VIDEOS NEXT: 1. SPEAK AS CLEARLY AS AN ACTOR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQNMCgKvOk0 2. SOUND MORE FLUENT IN ENGLISH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNxbqVaDItg 3. THE RP ACCENT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcIX-U5w5Ws TRANSCRIPT Hi there and welcome back to engVid. Today's lesson is to make sure that you are understood, because you could learn all the vocabulary in the world, but if you're not being understood by speaking clearly, then there's very little point. So today's lesson is to teach you a few exercises to ensure that your speech is as crisp and clear as possible. Now, I've got a number of exercises which I've written up on the board which are to help strengthen the muscles in your face and your mouth to help your speech become clear. Now, the words, and sentences, and phrases written up here are not meant to make sense. Okay? So this is not a language lesson. If you're not sure of what a word means, then I suggest look it up in a dictionary, but it may be a word that is not currently used in English, contemporary English. And the other thing I wanted to point out is that it's not just going to be by watching this video that you become clear. I will show you a number of exercises, but if you really want to take it to a next level, you will have to go off and see a voice teacher who will then be able to say to you: "You need to focus on your s sounds", or: "You need to focus on your d sounds", but then you have these exercises to help you. I hope that's clear. Okay, so I will go through this once slowly, and then I'll do it at full speed. The aim with these articulation exercises is to go nice and slowly so that you're getting each sound correctly, and then to start doing it as fast as you can, because that really works the muscles. Okay? So, in the top left of your screen you'll see this is an exercises for... An exercise for s sounds, p sounds, c sounds, and to some extent, b and d as well. Ready? Let's go. "To sit in solemn silence in a dull, dark, dock. In a pestilential prison with a life-long lock. Awaiting the sensation of a short, sharp, shock. From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big, black block." Okay. I'll now do this at full speed. "To sit in solemn silence in a dull, dark, dock. In a pestilential prison with a life-long lock. Awaiting the sensation of a short, sharp, shock. From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big, black block." Okay? And on to our t and d sounds. So, t and d is used with the tongue going up towards what is called the alveolar ridge in your mouth. So you should feel your tongue going up to get this sound correctly. Again, slowly and then at full speed. "In tooting two tutors astute tried to toot a duke on a flute. But duets so gruelling and only in duelling when tutors astute toot the flute." That should say "toot", let's put another t there. Again. "In tooting two tutors astute tried to toot a duke on a flute. But duets so gruelling and only in duelling when tutors astute toot the flute." Weird. Okay, and on to m, h, and i. "She stood on the balcony..." Okay? So try to get that "l" there, the "l" rising up to the roof of your mouth. "Inexplicably mimicking", so the m sound: "mmm", lips together. Mmm. "Mimicking him hiccupping", so a nice open mouth of "h", "h", for the h sound. "Hiccupping and amicably welcome... Welcoming him home." It's quite hard to get the "ing" there. "Welcoming him home. She stood on the balcony inexplimy-..." Got it wrong. Start again. "She stood on the balcony inexplicably mimicking him hiccupping and amicably welcoming him home." Okay? So you really got to move your mouth to get that... Those sounds correctly. I've put f, v, and "th" together because you must make sure that there is a difference between your "th" sounds and your f and your v. This is something I learnt after a long... Lots of long, hard practice at drama school, but it... You know, your "th", your tongue has to go up to the top of your mouth, and sort of tick, tick the teeth. "Ff", okay? The f and v sound is more made by... You got your lip there, and air coming out. "Five flippant Frenchmen fly from France for fashions. Five flippant Frenchmen fly from France for fashions".

#044 English Pronunciation and Intonation -The 7 Secrets READ the text here: https://SpeakEnglishPod.com Transcript: Hi everyone! I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently. In today’s episode, I’ll reveal to you the 7 secrets of the English pronunciation. Later you’ll practice your speaking with a funny mini story. The story is about a man who wants to speak English with a perfect accent. SECRET #1: LISTEN TO YOURSELF! Listening to your own pronunciation errors when you speak English can be difficult if not almost impossible to attain. What you’re usually doing is focusing on the conversation instead of the sounds you’re making. So, try to record yourself using your PC or smartphone. Do this only from time to time to observe the areas that need improvement. Many people hate their voice, and hearing themselves speak a foreign language for the first time will be difficult, but it’s a necessary step to develop a sense of self-awareness for improvement. SECRET #2: SLOW DOWN! I’ve noticed over the years that many English students think that speaking fluently equals speaking quickly. That’s an unfortunate misconception. When you talk too fast, you reinforce bad habits since you don’t have time to think about what you want to say next. Besides, you project little confidence. Talking slowly will help you relax and feel more confident. #044 English Pronunciation and Intonation -The 7 Secrets READ the text here: https://SpeakEnglishPod.com

How To Pronounce Secrets - Pronunciation Academy
 
00:22
Learn how to pronounce Secrets This is the *English* pronunciation of the word Secrets. According to Wikipedia, this is one of the possible definitions of the word "Secrets": Secrecy (also called clandestinity or furtiveness) is the practice of hiding information from certain individuals or groups, perhaps while sharing it with other individuals. That which is kept hidden is known as the secret. Secrecy is often controversial, depending on the content or nature of the secret, the group or people keeping the secret, and the motivation for secrecy. Secrecy by government entities is often decried as excessive or in promotion of poor operation; excessive revelation of information on individuals can conflict with virtues of privacy and confidentiality. It is often contrasted with social transparency.

50 Words You're Pronouncing WRONGLY Right Now! | Top 50 Mispronounced English Words, Common Mistakes
 
15:54
Learn the TOP 50 MISPRONOUNCED English words. These words are common mistakes made by many English learners. I will show you how to avoid these incorrect pronunciations and say all of these words correctly in this pronunciation lesson. For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Hello, and welcome back. In this lesson, I will show you fifty words that you are probably pronouncing incorrectly right now. And I’ll also teach you how to say them correctly. Let’s start with this word – how do you say it? Well, we say /prə-’nauns/, /prə-’naunst/ and /prə-’nauns-iŋ/, but /prə-nən- si-’eɪ-shən/. There’s no ‘noun’ in this word. It’s ‘pronunciation.’ Word number two is ‘says’. This word is commonly mispronounced by people learning English as /s eɪs/. But remember: I say, you say, but he or she /sez/. Number three is ‘et cetera’. A very common incorrect pronunciation is to say ‘ek’ – ‘ek setra’ instead of ‘et’. Don’t say that. And also remember that the stress is on ‘ce’. So the word is /et-’se- tə-rə/. You will also hear /et-’se-trə/ – that is less common but it’s OK too. Next up is ‘often’. Some pronounce this as /’äf-tən/. Now, strictly speaking, /’äf- tən/ is not wrong, but the more common pronunciation is with the ‘t’ silent, so I recommend that you always say /’ä-fən/. One word that is often mispronounced by learners of English is ‘women’. This is, of course, because of the English language’s crazy spelling system. But remember that we say /’wu-mən/ for one woman and /’wi-min/ for the plural – /’wi-min/. Word number six is ‘police’. This isn’t /po-lees/ or /po- lis/. It’s /pə/ and /lees/ with the stress on /lees/. So /pə-’lees/. The next word is ‘vehicle’. It’s often pronounced wrongly as /ve-hi-kl/. But the ‘e’ is a long vowel and the ‘h’ is silent. So /’vee-ə-kl/. Number eight is this word. How would you say it? The correct pronunciation is /’zhän-rə/. Pay attention to the first sound, it’s like ‘sh’ but you put your voice into it - /’zhän-rə/. /’zhän-rə/ Next up is actually what you’re watching right now – ‘video’. The important thing is that both the ‘i’ and the ‘e’ are pronounced as short ‘i’ sounds. It’s not /vee-di-o/, it’s /’vi-di-o/. If you watch a video on YouTube or Facebook, you might leave a ‘comment’. I have heard many speakers say /’kə-ment/. Now whether you use this word as a noun or a verb, the first syllable is always /’kä /. So it’s never a /’kə-ment/, it’s a /’kä-ment/. Word number eleven is ‘interesting’. This is mispronounced sometimes as /’in-tə-rə-stiŋ/. But there are only three syllables – /in / – /trə / – /stiŋ/ and the stress is on ‘IN’. So the word is /’in-trə-stiŋ/. Number twelve is ‘hotel’. There are two syllables – /ho/ and / tel/ like the English word ‘tell’ as in ‘tell me’. The stress is on the second syllable, so /ho-’tel/. A related word is ‘suite’. This means a set of connected rooms in a hotel and this is wrongly pronounced by many people as /soot/. But it’s /sweet/ - like when you eat a piece of candy - /sweet/. While we’re on the topic of suites and hotels, I cannot leave out this word – ‘restaurant’. It gives a lot of English learners trouble. But, don’t let the fancy spelling confuse you – the second syllable is just /tə /. The third is /ränt/. So /’res-tə- ränt/. In British English, you might hear just two syllables – /’res-trɒnt/ - that is also correct. After you eat at a restaurant, you have to pay the bill. But you might get a discount on your bill if you have one of these – a ‘coupon’. A common incorrect pronunciation is /’koo-pən/. But the second syllable should be /pän/. So – /’koo-pän/. Here’s word number sixteen – how would you say it? The proper pronunciation is not ‘break’ ‘fast’ – it’s ‘breakfast’. /brek / with a short /e/ sound and /fəst/ with an /ə/ sound - so /’brek-fəst/. You know what I had for breakfast today? I had this – ‘pizza’. Really, I did. It’s not a /pee-sə/ and it’s not a /peed-zə/. There’s no /z/ sound in this word. It’s /peet/, /sə/ - /’peet-sə/. Another food word that’s mispronounced a lot is ‘vegetable’. It’s not /ve-jə- tə-bl/. If you say it correctly, there are only three syllables - /vej/, / tə/, /bl/ - /’vej- tə-bl/. Let’s talk about a couple of vegetables now – this is a ‘cucumber’. It’s not a /ku- koom-bər/. Think of it like saying the letter ‘Q’ and then /kəm-bər/ like ‘number’. So /’kyoo-kəm-bər/. This vegetable is called ‘lettuce’. I know the spelling looks like /let-yoos/ but it’s not – it’s /letis/. And since we talking about food, here’s a food that just about everybody loves – ‘chocolate’. When you ask for this at the store, make sure there are only two syllables – /chäk / and /lət/ - /’chäk-lət/. And remember: there is no ‘late’ in ‘chocolate’. Speaking of chocolate, how would you say this word? This is ‘dessert’.

Understand more and improve your English pronunciation with the BREAK& GRAB METHOD
 
21:43
Do you know what Active Listening is? I will show you how you can use Active Listening and my "BREAK & GRAB" method to improve your ability to listen and to understand REAL English conversations. By using this method, you will also improve your pronunciation and vocabulary! And best of all, once you learn how to do it, you can practice in just a few minutes. Learn this powerful technique and start improving your English now. TAKE THE QUIZ: https://www.engvid.com/grab-and-break-method/ TRANSCRIPT I can, can't. Hi. James from engVid. This lesson, what I want to do is help you... Well, I want to help you improve two things at once, your pronunciation and your listening. Really, I will be focusing on the listening part, but if you do this right, your pronunciation will also get better. You ready? Let's go to the board. As you can see, Mr. E has a big ear. Listening is one of those things when people are learning a language they don't really pay attention to. It's quite funny because I hear many people say right away: "I listen to English all the time. I listen to videos at home. Why? I don't need anyone to tell me about... Help me with listening." And usually the same people will say something like: "My pronunciation's not very good. I really don't understand when people speak to me", and so on and so forth. And you're trying to explain: Listening is a skill that is natural. Actually, there's a difference between hearing and listening, and we're going to go to the board right now and talk about that so that we can get to what I call "active listening". You ready? Let's go. So, E, as you can see, has a big ear because he is now listening because he wants to improve on his listening skills and his pronunciation, and he's come to the right place. All right, so the first thing I want to look at here is "hear". When we use the word "hear" in English it's for sound, it really is. It's just for sound. Like... [Drops marker] Did you hear that? Right? You don't say: "Did you listen to that?" You can't listen to that. You can hear that. All right? So that would be music, when people are speaking, because if you can't hear... And here I wrote this: "If you don't hear it, it doesn't exist", and that's true. Listening... Or hearing is physical. Okay? The ear actually has to work, or you have to make it work. There are two things you have to be careful on, that your ear is good, so get a hearing test if necessary, if you need one; but also we can make it better, if physically everything works, sometimes people don't pay attention so they miss the sounds. And when you miss a sound, it changes the word and sometimes the meaning. And that's when we look over here, to "listen". "Listening" makes us focus and gives us meaning. So, when you're listening to someone, you will look at them and you will pay attention, and that's how you get the meaning. You need to be able to physically hear the sound, which is true, but if you don't listen, you won't get the meaning of what they say. Okay? So we need a combination. And luckily for us, when the ear works, we can use our listening or our focus skills to improve how this works so we can get better at learning language and learn faster. If you remember what I said here: If you don't hear, it doesn't exist. That's the physical part. If you cannot hear it, it doesn't exist. Right? Which will lead to bad pronunciation, because if you cannot hear a T, you won't say the T. "Huh? Hmm?" Yeah. For many Spanish people, the "d" sound is a "th". They cannot actually hear us when we say "duh", so they say: "the", right? So they go: "I stanthe", "I stanthe" instead of: "I stand". When they can hear it, because when I make them say the sound "d", they can do it, and "duh", they can say it, then all of a sudden they're like: "I can stand. He wanted". Not: "I wantith". -"I wanted". -"Oh, it's a different sound." By focusing and listening we're able to make them realize there are different sounds being said and improve on their pronunciation. Okay? Now, if we use active listening, which is what I will teach you now, it will help us retrain the ear. "Retrain" means make the ear go back to the beginning and then start again, and retrain to make it better. Now, I have a little game we're going to play, which is a fun game because you can do it by yourself, -- I will give you an example in a second -- but you can also do it with a friend. "Huh?" So you can both help each other improve. So, I'm going to read something to you. Okay? And I want you to close your eyes and I want you to listen. Okay? Now, I want you to look for the words with the letter C. All right? So you're going to close your eyes, like I'm closing my eyes now. And I'm going to read this to you, and I want you to count how many C words are in this sentence. Are you ready? Are your eyes closed? Okay, do it now. "The cat quickly came to the couch and caught sight of the kite in the tree and kept quiet." […]

Speak English like a North American: 4 Pronunciation Rules for the Letter T
 
13:44
Everyone has an accent. If you want to sound more like a native English speaker, you need to work on your pronunciation. I am from Canada, and I have a particular accent, too. Today, I will teach you four rules to help you pronounce words that have the letter T in them. This is the way Canadians and many Americans pronounce this letter. There are hard T sounds and soft T sounds. There are Ts that sound like Ds, and there are Ts that sound like a stopped sound. So many Ts! Don’t worry, though, because after watching this lesson, you will be an expert. Take the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/speak-english-pronunciation-t/ . TRANSCRIPT Hi. My name's Ronnie, and I have a bottle of water. What? So, sometimes when I go to a restaurant and I order water, people don't understand me. I'm in Canada, I'm speaking English, and I said: "Water", and they look at me strange. And I go: -"Oh, you know? Water?" -"Oh, water. Yes, water." -"No, no. It's water." It's a t, right? W-a-t-e-r. This, in Canada, we call a bottle of water. And I go: "Oh, that's really crazy because it's a bottle of water." Now, I get called out all the time on having an accent. Everyone has an accent. You have an accent, depending on where you're from. Everyone has an accent. So, first of all, I hate people who go: -"Oh, I don't got an accent." -"Oh, mister, you have an accent. Okay?" Everyone has an accent, and I'm going to teach you how to improve yours or damaged English-I don't know-to speak with an American/Canadian accent. Oh my god. Where's this going? So, I'm going to teach you a trick, and the trick is about the "t". I am very excited about this because I've been thinking about this for, oh, maybe ten years. Why do Canadians and Americans say "d"? It's a "t". I found the reason, and I'm going to teach you. Let's have some water, shall we? We have three... four. I'm good at counting, again. We have four rules. Okay? So, the "t" pronunciation. Sometimes, as I told you, we actually say the "t" like a "d". So, this is the rule. Rule number one: If it's between... If the "t" is between two vowel sounds. So, check this out. This "i" is a vowel, and "y"-sneaky bugger-sometimes is a vowel, but it's a vowel sound. So, we don't say: "ability" in Canadian and American English; we say: "abilidy". That's really strange, people. Canadians, Americans, maybe you were drunk or cold when you were doing this. I'm not too sure, but just nonsensical, really. We don't say: "computer", as we should; we say: "compuder". Hey, look at that computer, eh? So Canadian to say "eh" at the end. So, again, between two vowels-"u" and "e" are vowels-we're going to pronounce it like: "compuder". This is crazy. The next one, as I said in the beginning: "water". "a", "e" are vowels, and it's going to be said like: "wader". When I was in Jamaica, they said: "wata", and I was like: "Yes! Good. Got it." Again, so what I've done to help you-you're welcome-is I've just underlined the vowel. So, "a", "e"; "e", "e"; "er", "er", "er", "er". And again, this one, watch out: "i" and "y". "y" is a vowel sound. So, all of these guys, magically, you're going to go from speaking your language to speaking Canadian and American English with the crazy accent, because we say: "header". The thing that keeps you warm... Canada's cold in the winter. We don't say: "heater"; we say: "header". And this is even more confusing now, because it looks like "header", but it's actually this pronunciation: "heeder". Turn on the heater, eh? It's cold. This word, if you say it... Not "better" in my books. If you say it with a Canadian/American pronunciation; crazy way; we say: "bedder". Then we say: "madder". And then, even though we went to "university", we say: "universidy". Eh? You following? I don't know why it's crazy. Just say the "t" or write the "d". The other rule with the "t" sounding like a "d" is if it's between a vowel and an "l" or an "r". So, as I said in the beginning... I can't even say it. "Bottle". It's not a bottle, Ronnie. So, if it's between an "o" and an "l", it's going to be said like a "d", so we say: "boddle". This is my vowel "a", and this is an "l". We don't say: "battle"; we say: "baddle". Into battle, soldiers. One of Ronnie's favourite words: "dirty". So, we don't say "dirty" because we have an "r" and a vowel sound. So, this is the example of a vowel and an "l"; this is the example of a vowel and an "r". Okay? So, a vowel and "l"; a vowel and "r". With our numbers, again, we have a vowel and an "r", so these ones are going to sound like a "d". So, we're going to say: "dirdy", "fordy", and "thirdy". Have you turned thirty yet? As a joke, we like to say... Or some people like to say: "It's my dirty 30." We won't go into detail with that. About that. I will let your imaginations run wild on that one. And just make sure you say: "dirdy" because no one is going to understand you if you say "dirty". You're a dirty, wee cow. […]

Remember, fast speech isn't really about speaking "quickly"... but it may sound very quick to you since you are a non-native English speaker. Fast speech simply refers to the way native English speakers change and eliminate sounds as they speak normal, everyday English. If you are trying to sound more like a native speaker with an American English accent, I give lots of examples in this video to make you aware of what to listen for. Finally, learning pronunciation by reading how words are spelled is VERY confusing because English is not a phonetic language. So, the best way to learn pronunciation is to listen carefully and imitate what you hear. NOTE: Fast speech and connected speech are the same thing Also, here is the list of phrases I discuss in the video: -What are you doing later? -Where is he at? -Did you give it to him? -How did it go? -What do you mean? -Can I go? -How is it going? -Would you give it to me. -I have to go to the store -Where did you get them? -I don't know how to do it. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••­­­••••••••••• HANG OUT WITH ME HERE 🙋🏼‍♀️ → Website: https://www.englishfulltime.com/ → Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stefanietheenglishcoach/ → Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theenglishcoach/ → Blog: https://www.englishfulltime.com/blog/ → Business Inquiries: [email protected] ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••­­­••••••••••• SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS 🤗 The Book That Changed My Life: http://amzn.to/2GjHgGx Best Headphones Ever (super expensive, but 100% worth it!): http://amzn.to/2GjIMZa Awesome Travel-Sized Mic: http://amzn.to/2FCZ4eN My Favorite Backpacking Pack (super durable, I love it!): http://amzn.to/2FOasrs Every Woman Needs This: http://amzn.to/2FtaeXn If you travel with electronics, you need this: http://amzn.to/2Fw0Geh Luggage Organizers (so simple, yet so useful!): http://amzn.to/2Fw4oEJ Best Webcam (still PERFECT after 5+ years!): http://amzn.to/2HsF5Qv Improve Your Writing & Master Punctuation (not for beginners): http://amzn.to/2tBUn3i Learn The Secrets Of Good Writing (not for beginners): http://amzn.to/2Fwp4MR (NOTE: These are affiliate links) ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••­­­••••••••••• FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ's) 🌎 Where are you from? -California 🗣 Do you speak another language? -Yes, I learned Spanish and speak fluently. ✈️ What countries have you traveled to? -Mexico, Argentina, Ireland, UK, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy 🇦🇷 Have you ever lived abroad? -Yes, I have lived in Argentina since January 2013 🤷🏼‍♀️ You speak too fast.
