    Congratulations. You’re the first one again.

    Sunday, January 29th 2017

Thanks very much Jade, this is the first time I watch your video.

Hello why you don’t speak about the letter “t” in the slang language when the letter is dropped.
It seems for example the word little is pronounced li’le.
Thx for your courses.

    This is the glottal stop Fredojo . T stays like deep in your throat and you breathe it out like an H

    Have a nice day

Hi, everyone!
It`s the 1111th lesson! Congratulations to EngVid!
Very useful lesson for those who has difficulties in pronunciation, especially sounds [th] I`ve got a friend who suffers this problem. I`ll

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Sorry, I did`t finish my comment. Something happened with my laptop. So, I`ll continue….
I`ll tell her how to overcome her trouble and she`ll sound almost like real Londoner.
Though I don`t like “cockni” accent.

Sunday, January 29th 2017

    this time you are among the first ones, this courage of you, congratulations.

    Sunday, January 29th 2017

      Yes, thank you. I was happy as well!!!

      Sunday, January 29th 2017

      You’re wrong. Teacher Soei is the first one again. I think when you visited engvid, you saw Natanna as the first one. By the way, I hope, that Natanna can be the first one in next video.

      Sunday, January 29th 2017

        Hi, nkh453. I know I’m not the first one. I was happy to be AMONG the first ones as SKIKDA noticed.
        And I never give up trying!

        Sunday, January 29th 2017

          If you wanna be the first who comments, so it is easy and you can be always the first, Just get into the website about 7 am (the timing of Algeria (+1)), I used to find the field of comments empty at that time.
          :)

          Monday, January 30th 2017

          Hi, struggleForEng! Thank you for the advice. I’ll follow it. There were times I wasn’t interested in comments on EngVid ( I just watched videos) and I noticed that only at 2am (Algeria timing) the fields were empty!!! Can you imagine that?!
          Do you know we have been struggling for the first comment since November/October? I think it gives us more interest and makes the process more competitive.
          See you.

          Monday, January 30th 2017

          I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it.

          Monday, January 30th 2017

        Hi my friend. Among first oneS is all right. It’s completely true. Take care.

        Monday, January 30th 2017

    *Cockney, sorry

    Sunday, January 29th 2017

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Hi Jade.
Thank you so much.this lesson was interesting lesson so,is the best speaking,talking and writing about slang in London UK.

Sunday, January 29th 2017

I need to watch more lessons like this about British accent. Thanks Jade!

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Ty

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Actually there isn’t a”glotal stop”, only a Glottal ‘T’.
water /ˈwɔː ə/ intead of /ˈwɔːtə/

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Oh! Sorry. It’s ‘instead’ not ‘intead’, innit?

Sunday, January 29th 2017

This Londoner accent is a little weird but if you live there, you will be able to find out its rules, in fact, I was there in a recruitment for a job as a bus driver and I had some problems to understand what they were telling me, I had to imagine approximately the meaning of the words and sounds in Cockney and it was not easy, but anyway, it was a curious experience. Thanks a lot, teacher Jade, a very interesting lesson.

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Nice to see you again Jade!Great lesson!But what if you can´t talk regularly to “Real Londoners”??It´s difficult to get used to this accent if you only learn English with books and other sources like EngVid.com
I hardly realise about accents in English, so, I will appreciate if somebody here can tell me which accent Gill speaks. In my opinion, she speaks very clearly and, as far as I know, she is from the UK, isn´t she???

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Hi Jade! Actualy you speak in this slang:) Yuor accent is peculiar

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Hello Jade. Thank you for teaching us.
But, to tell you the truth_no offense_ I didn’t like it anymore.
By the way, nice teaching

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Hi Jade! It’s good to see you again, and thanks for another lesson. I like your accent. I visited London last year and I liked your city. It could be great for me to get a better comprehension of the language that is spoken in the streets.

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Hi Jade! Thanks for this video, the accent is something really important for learning, so the more I learn the better I understand the language.

Sunday, January 29th 2017

Monday, January 30th 2017

Last time I came to London I almost understood nothing of what people said and now you have cleared up my mind: Londoners almost speak a language of their own!

Tuesday, January 31st 2017

Hello Jade,
You are far better on EngVid than on your own channel on YouTube. Thank you for this useful lesson.

Tuesday, January 31st 2017

It was a good lesson, however, I’m not planning to speak like that, I mean, no effence, I don’t want to be like them I just want to learn how to speak English properly. It’s good to know this kind of conversation if you want to understand what they’re saying but I think it’s not necessary to speak like that.

Tuesday, January 31st 2017

Hi Jade, very interesting lesson!!
