I’ve found this lesson particularly fascinating and worthwhile, I finally understood why native speakers pronounce the article “the” in different ways… :)

Dear Rebecca,
Nice reminder: learning a language is also listen to sounds.
Yours sincerely.

Thursday, October 13th 2016

    Yes, for sure. As I said in the video, you have to train your eyes, your ears, and your mouth. My best to you, Peter.

I’m new here. And I was looking for a teacher who understand him pronounce it to English. At last I find you say her understandable manner. This was a great lesson for me. Despite my somewhat weak but I’ll try to we’re not tracking them. Thank you so much REBECCA….

Ooh dear Rebrcca !
Thank you very much

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Thank you, Rebecca, for your lessons they are so useful for me but why there is not the quiz in this lesson?

Thursday, October 13th 2016

    No quiz because it’s basically a pronunciation lesson, so hard to test as such! All the best to you. Mohsen.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

What are the advantages and disadvantages? There aren´t any disadvantages about this lesson, though this last one was quite a mouthful ;)

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Wow,you have changed a lot.Last time,your lesson is often boring but now,it is funny and exciting.
Thank you teacher Rebecca for all your useful lesson.

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Dear teacher, Rebecca, although I’ve known that there are some different pronunciations of “and” and “the” in a sentence before, you give me more explnations. Thank you and May you happyness!

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Pronunciation of English sounds is not a problem to me, but there are some difficulties in sound transitions when one word ends and another starts, like from TH to S. Would you, please, make a lesson about sound transitions for speaking faster and sounding like a native speaker?

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Nice and good :)

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Thanks Rebecca for this lesson, it was great and easy to understand…:)

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Hi Rebecca!

Thanks for this lesson, I did not know the way “and” has to be pronounced until now. That is very interesting, so now we can sound more native.

Thursday, October 13th 2016

wHAt a FuNny LeSssOOn:)

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Hi, Rebecca,
Why are not any critics amoung your aprentices? Are you perfect teacher? I don’t have much knowlege of English for to find your mistakes, but I’m sure that an only commendable comments are not good. What do you think about it?

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Hi Rebeca
Thank you so much for every single lesson you have made. I have improved a lot and I owe it to you among other internet teachers.

Thursday, October 13th 2016

    I think it is a little peculiar to me seeing this sentence: ” I have improved a lot” I think it is better to say: I have gotton better at English a lot.However, a native speaker should give some piece of advice on this matter like Rebeca.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

    Thank you aclesio. So glad to know you have found the many lessons of engvid helpful. It means a lot to us. Thank you.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

What I have just learned from this lesson was about pronouncing the in superlative form to emphasizing the point.Thank you for your appreciated attempt

Thursday, October 13th 2016

This lesson was fantastic. Thanks and take care.

Thursday, October 13th 2016

hi Rebecca. Thank you so much for this lesson.
I have asked you about making a lesson about pronouncing the letter ( I ) before and i am still waiting for it, when (i) pronounce like eye and when (i) like e

Thursday, October 13th 2016

I think this is one of “thee” best lesson that I saw. Thank you.

Thursday, October 13th 2016

    So glad to hear you found the lesson helpful. My best to you, Vlozky.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

thank´s Rebecca!

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Cool lesson. Thanks Rebecca!
I heard native Americans speak THUH when it should be THEE and vice versa. I don’t really mind if I use the wrong pronunciation, but watching this video makes me want to speak them correctly, so I will. You know, when it’s your native language, you don’t care that much, you just say it, but it’s good to stick with the correct ones.

See ya!

Thursday, October 13th 2016

Just pointing it out, English isn’t my native language, that’s why I find it so cool. Haha!

Portuguese blows. :P
Sometimes I brush up on its grammar. :P

Thursday, October 13th 2016

I like language

Hello, Great teaching. I like that.

Sunday, October 16th 2016

This was a great lesson for me.thank you so much

Sunday, October 16th 2016

Hi Rebecca!If it’s convevient for you could you please teach a lesson on the word “of”.(I don’t know the proper noun for this kind of pronunciation issue that I’ve got in my mind,maybe it’s considered spoken contraction I’m not sure)I’m really a English enthusiast,watching n listening English all day long.Here is my question:phraes like “full of”and”call it”.For example the phrase”full of”in their mouths sound like “ful/le/v”,there is “le” in the middle instead of “e”,and”call it” sounds like “cal/li/t”.Other examples are”all in all”(sounds like”al/lin/all),”In it”(sounds like”in/ni/t)

Monday, October 17th 2016

    Yes, you are right, Erik1774. I will check on that lesson with the other teachers. All the best to you.

It was new to me the different form of speaking “the” according to the [thuh] context, the [thee] initial sound of the next word.

Bravo Rebecca!

That’s an extraordinary lesson! I had never heard about it before. And I am delighted for having learned this important topic.

Actually, I had already realised native English speakers pronounced the word “the” in different ways, but I used to think it was a matter of accents. But I was wrong. Thank you for correcting me.

See you!
