Hello Rebecca,
I’m really appreciate your video lessons.
When I was founding out an English information, I found your webpage. It’s quite good. I’m sure that It’s going to improve my english skills.
I’d like to know “L”, “R” pronunciation.
It’s really difficult for me who is KOREAN.
Thanks in advance.

    Dear Charlie,

    This is Bill Ralens here from http://www.naruhodo-eigo.com. In your post, you asked about the pronunciation for L and R. I first suggest getting a mirror so you can watch yourself. Feedback is everything you know. To pronounce R, open your mouth, place your hands in front of your face and breathe out like you are wanting to waRm up your hands. R is waRm. To pronounce L, place the tip of your tongue on the back of your top two center teeth. Suck air in and you’ll notice that the air feels coLd on your tongue. L is coLd. That is how you pronounce L and R.

      Thanks for helping out, Bill.

        Hi,Rebecca,Could you tell me how about the exam levels of English in the world?And please give me some advice how to learn more international or North English in China.Thanks for your lively courses.

        Thursday, November 1st 2012

      Actually Bill to pronounce L you put the end of your tongue on your lower teeth keeping rest of your tongue flat and exhale across the top of your mouth never moving your tongue and pronounce from your throat

    Hi. I heard about this site from my foreign friend but I can’t view your videos here in China. Do you have any alternatives? Hope you can help me out with this. I want to be a fan of your videos too, same as my friend. Thanks!

    Thursday, September 1st 2011

      Hi xiaojana. You will have to use a “proxy” that will allow you to view YouTube videos in China. Right now there is no other option. We are hoping in the future to put our lessons on Youku or a similar Chinese site.

      Thursday, September 1st 2011

      you should sign in a account of google mail(gmail),then use gmail proxy,you should set parameters of IE or firefox,then activate command,then view this frequently.it’s very useful and free my question is similar to you but solved by myself.

Hello Rebecca,

Thanks a lot for your lessons. I would appreciate if you can send me a bigger list of regular verbs and their pronunciation. I understood your explanation about them, but I do not know how can I know the right way of pronunciation. Is there any rule to follow?

Thanks in advance,

Sandra

Thursday, October 30th 2008

    There are three rules to pronounce past tense verbs.
    1. The past tense ( ed) is pronounced as (t) when the last sound in the present tense is voiceless :
    Ex: Look — Looked (t)
    Miss — Missed
    Stop — Stopped
    2. The past tense (ed) is pronounced as (d) when the last sound in the present tense verb is a Vowel or a voiced consonant
    Ex : Love — Loved (d)
    Stay — Stayed
    Tune — Tuned
    3. The past tense (ed) is pronounced as (id) when the last sound in the present tense verb is t or d
    Ex : End — Ended (id)
    Brand– Branded
    paste — pasted
    I hope this will help you.

    Friday, November 11th 2011

      Thankx for the detail information. That is I want to know.

      Friday, November 23rd 2012

      Great advice, thank you!

      Tuesday, July 23rd 2013

Thanks to all of you for your feedback and please let me know if there are other topics you would like to have me explain.

English pronunciation has a lot of variations, but keep listening carefully and don’t give up.

Sandra and Hector – I will email you some information about what you’ve asked about.

Tuesday, November 11th 2008

    Hi Rebecca! thank you for this video lesson, the pronunciation of the past tense regular verb is a big problem for me

    Sunday, September 12th 2010

    Hi Rebecca, like Sandra and Hector, could you send a list of verbs with ending ed and d and their pronunciation ?
    Thanks a lot.

    Friday, September 13th 2013

Dear Rebecca:

Since june i’m studying english, and for me is very hard to understand the correct pronuntiation of regular verbs in past tense, so i need a lot of help from you; first as well as Sandra and Hector i need a list of regular verbs with their corrects pronuntations also i want a list about the usual irregular verbs.

I hope to get your response soon, thanks a lot.

This is my first view at your website it’s amazing!!!!

Regards, george ;)

Sunday, November 16th 2008

thanks 4 posting your videos. Could you cast some light as 2 how 2 pronounce thew u vowel. For instance pool and pull; fool and full. thanks again

Saturday, November 22nd 2008

Hi Carlos

Thanks for your comments.

In the word pull or full the u is short as in the words up, cup or nut. It’s a kind of “uh” sound.

In pool and fool the u sound is longer, like “oo” and you need to bring your lips together into a kind of o shape.

Hope this helps.

Monday, December 15th 2008

Hi George

Glad you found the lesson helpful. There are many grammar books which provide a list of the irregular English verbs. For example, you can look at the back of English Grammar In Use by Raymond Murphy.

It’s kind of difficult to find a list of the regular verbs and how they sound because there are so many of them. There are some guidelines you can follow by looking into an English pronunciation book. You can also try to listen carefully to good native speaker pronunciation and you can learn well that way.

Good luck to you!

Monday, December 15th 2008

Hi Rebecca!

How r you?
You’re good at explaning I was a little confuse wit this topic of pronunciation, but I saw u and Im not anymore thank you :)

Thursday, January 22nd 2009

    Thanks, Israel. Glad I could help. Good luck with your English!

    Rebecca

    Saturday, February 7th 2009

Hi Rebecca
you are very good teacher .
I’m going to appeare in IELTS exam that’s why I need your help. Basically I belong to urdu medium. Would you please guide me how can I get 7 band.

Wednesday, April 1st 2009

    Hi Rabia

    The IELTS is quite a challenging exam. Please allow enough time to prepare for it. The speakers have English and Australian accents on the listening sections of the exam and you must get used to this.

    You can start by checking this website:

    http://www.goodluckielts.com

    It will give you a lot of information, tips and strategies to get a higher score on the exam.

    You also need to get hold of a good IELTS exam preparation guide book, such as Cambridge or any of those you see recommened on the website above.

    Work through the tests, find out your weaker areas, and then do lots of additional practice to strengthen yourself in those areas.

    It would certainly be helpful to attend a good IELTS preparation class if you can. You need to get feedback from a teacher on your IELTS writing.

    Make sure you know whether you need to take the General or Academic IELTS.

    All the best to you, Rabia.

    Thursday, April 9th 2009

Hi,

Needless to say u r a very good teacher. Your gesture,body language, voice quality and tone are perfact and flawless. Keep learning good english in a very simple and interested way.

Surya

Thursday, April 23rd 2009

    Thanks for your kind words, Surya. I wish you all the best.

    Friday, April 24th 2009

Hello Rebecca! You are a great teacher . I ´ve learned a lot from your class . Thank you very much , but I was wondering if you could help me to improve my listening skills , I am going to take TOEFL exam again and I want to reach a higher score . Please can you email me some information?
Thanks a lot!

Thursday, April 30th 2009

    Aside from doing extra practice from various TOEFL guidebooks, you might want to look for a really good listening book and CD called Learn to Listen, Listen to Learn. It has many helpful exercises to build up your listening skills.

    Remember also that taking notes effectively will make a big difference to your listening score, as well as your integrated writing response.

    Saturday, June 27th 2009

Thanks For you

Monday, May 18th 2009

Hi, your lessons are great! I’m using them here in Slovakia to teach adults. Some of your videos the focus is not constant. Some camera advice…the camera should have an infinity focus setting. Try setting it to that setting, it should stay focused on the board and not go out of focus when you step forward. It should also sufficiently keep you in focus when you step forward. Keep up the great work! TJ

Wednesday, June 10th 2009

    Hi. I’m happy you are finding the lessons useful. It’s wonderful to hear all the different countries that the lessons are being watched in. Thanks for the technical suggestions, too. The problems you’re talking about shouldn’t appear in our newer English lessons, but please let us know if you do have other suggestions. Thanks for watching!

    Thursday, June 11th 2009

I’ve really learned this for the very first time.
thanks a ton

Friday, June 12th 2009

hi…i have a query..if ‘kissed’ or ‘worked’ ends with ‘t’ sound then how does ‘killed’ pronunciation ends with? how to chose words for correct pronunciation? …

Monday, June 22nd 2009

    ‘Killed’ ends with a d sound. Check with a pronunciation book for a more detailed explanation.

    Saturday, June 27th 2009

Thank you teacher! I did the quiz and I got 50 :( But thank you for the information you give too! I am going to practice more then the usual!

Tuesday, June 30th 2009

    Yes, keep at it and you will surely improve. By the way, you should actually say,

    I am going to practice more than usual.

    :)

    how i know that what are the vervs that i need to pronounce with “t” “d” “id”

    how i compared?

    Monday, July 13th 2009

      Hi Yanina

      There are many good English pronunciation kits available which can help you. Look for them online under ‘Improving English Pronunciation’

      Otherwise, you could join a course or find a good private teacher to make quicker progress in English.

      All the best to you.

      Monday, July 27th 2009

Thanks for the video class. It really helps me a lot, you’re an excellent teacher. I hope some day I’ll speak English as well as you do.
Thank you.

Tuesday, July 28th 2009

    I’m sure you will. Believing in ourselves is what makes everything possible. My best wishes to you.

    Friday, August 28th 2009

hi teacher… thank for ur lesson.. for the result of the quiz.. i only correct 3 questions…. T.T sad to see this… haha.. however, may i know when i need to pronoun t, d , id for a verb ?
is it only 1 way to know how to pronoun that is hear other people talk ? sorry again for my poor english

Tuesday, August 18th 2009

There are some rules, but I believe the easier way would be for you to learn naturally through listening, at this stage.

You don’t need to apologize for your English. How wonderful that you have made so much progress. That’s all any of us can do – keep going, try our best. Each day you will improve.

My best wishes to you.

Sunday, November 1st 2009

Monday, November 16th 2009

Thank you for all lessons. Can you explain this sentence to me? I could see the waves lapped against the rocks. Someone told me that I should use lapping instead of lapped. Can you tell me why

Thanks

Monday, November 23rd 2009

hello, Rebeca
that is defenitely a very important subject to teach our students. But, you forgot to teach us when we are supposed to sound like “t” or d” , which happens to most of the verbs….then you say, “we have 3 options” it might sound like i can pronounce the verbs whatever way I want, so here are the rules, people:

t sound- verbds ending in – f- k-p-ch-cs-ss
ed sound- verbs ending in t or d
d sound- for the rest of the verbs…
thank you]
Luis

Monday, December 21st 2009

Hi Robecca, May you recommend for me a website that telling more about how to get correctly pronunciation for regular verbs in past tense,like when we say -ed is -t,-d or -id. Or you may talk about that more detail

Tuesday, June 15th 2010

nice.nice.nice….thank u miss you are a very good teacher. and we wait from you and from your partenersother lessons with the same quality.

Friday, July 9th 2010

Very nice, Rebecca. I never knew that in some past regular verbs there is a ‘t’ sound.
I always pronounced (‘d’ sound?) ‘d’ and ‘id’ but never ‘t’ sound.
Well, I really don’t see such a big difference when pronouncing “worked” with ‘d’ and ‘t’.
It somehow always overcome the ‘t’ sound.

I really do not know what I wanted (‘id’?) to say above, but I hope you understood me.

One more thing. You said there are some rules in the last message. Can you tell us what are those rules?

Thank you! Keep up the good work. (This is an idiom, right?)

Friday, July 16th 2010

Hallo, Rebecca! Thank you for the lesson! This topic had been a big problem to me for a long time. I used to think that native speakers don’t pronunce the ending -d letter at all, because I rarely heard that sound when I washed films or listen to the music.
Thank you for your time and for this amazing project!

I need the answer,too.
thanks.

    O have the same real name as u

    Wednesday, October 26th 2011

Rebecca thanks 4 your effort.

Friday, August 12th 2011

Teacher,

I am a Brazilian. Times ago I found a book which taught me that if the verb ends in -TED or -DED, the suffix ED sounds as /ID/. Examples: ADDED, WANTED.

If the last sound of the verb ends in your lips, ED sounds as /T/ as in WASHED /T/, STOPPED /T/.

And if the last sound of the verb is in throat, the suffix ED sound as /D/ such as ARRIVED /D/, TATTOOED /D/.

Do you agree with this, teacher?

    Hi Lisa. There is no ‘program’ to follow. You can watch any lesson that you think will be useful to you. You can start with the English lessons for Beginners, if you want.

    Sunday, August 28th 2011

Good lesson Rebecca, but I would have to ask you something about quiz! Look at this example: appreciated
t
d
id, The right answer was “d”, but I think it should be “id”. . . Could you tell me what answer is correct? Thank you in advance :)

hi rebecca!

Appreciated is pronounced as d or id. I took a quiz, my answer was id but it says i was wrong. which is really correct pronunciation? thanks.

Thursday, May 17th 2012

Thursday, May 17th 2012

I have a doubt!
Would you consider these differences important to teach them in a EFL classroom for just kids?
When would you teach it?
Thanks anyway :)

Monday, May 21st 2012

Hey Rebecca, i’m a foreigner from israel.

i think the site is amazingly good to learn english and i hope to improve really soon.

although your video was pretty clear i wanted to ask: when do i know i need to pronounce it ‘t’/’ed’/’id’ ?
you showed some example but you didn’t give guideline.

looking forward for your answer.

BTW, if i wanna learn properly, is there an order for watching videos ?

oh last question, how can i improve my voice infliction and pronunciation while talking ? i can easily express myself over writing but i would say a sentence in 30 second.

again, Thank you Rebecca.

Monday, June 4th 2012

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks for the lesson. I’ve learned a lot, but I got a question from the quiz. Isn’t “appreciated” pronounced “id”? Thanks a lot!!

Tuesday, July 17th 2012

    I think you right. We must use in this word.

    Wednesday, August 29th 2012

      I think you right. We must use id in this word.

      Wednesday, August 29th 2012

        And again :).
        I think you are right. We must use id in this word.

        Thursday, August 30th 2012

What is the difference between
1 should have and should have been
2 would have and would have been
3 could have could have been

Monday, August 6th 2012

    Hi patilrr ….

    should have been –> Which is happened in past …
    Should have —- > Which is going to happen in future

    would have been — > we assumed that something is happened in past …
    would have —> something is going to happen in future ….

    could have been –> less possibility of happened in past …

    could –> less possibility of something …

    Tuesday, March 25th 2014

Thank you, Rebecca.
I like these videos.

Could you tell how to pronounce “send to” [send tə] or [sent tə]? And other examples?

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

    I have same doubt ….

    Tuesday, March 25th 2014

Don’t worry about forgetting gmramar. The mere fact that you are speaking English means that gmramar is constantly being applied and memory is constantly being stimulated. It is fantastic that you are taking the time to teach your students Accent Reduction. With today’s global workforce bringing together all the diverse speakers of English as a second language, it is vital that one’s accent be understood. An understandable accent will make the difference in their job success. Cudos to you!www.askalia.squarespace.comAlia

Wednesday, August 29th 2012

hi Rebecca, thanx for the lesson. I have a quick question. In the test above it says appreciated is pronounced as “d” instead of “id”. it seems, it ends in “t” sound. if so why is that? please help.

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

Thursday, December 6th 2012

thanks for your lesson

Monday, December 10th 2012

hello, thanks for your lessons, I have a question, I’ve done the quiz, and I thaught for long that “appreciated” is pronounced with ‘id’ rather than’d’, so how could we differenciate between “negotiated” or “granted”?

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

Hello Rebecca
I want to thank you, this lesson is very useful for me.
I have a remark concerning the quiz:
according to the rule ‘appreciated’ must pronounce like ‘id’, but in the correction I found the correct answer is ‘t’.

Monday, February 4th 2013

Thank you a lot Im learning a lot from you :)

Monday, March 11th 2013

negotiate d is added to form negotiated . so d sound heard .
appreciate add d , too. d sound heard .
I feel confused , why say id sound in the verb –negotiated ?

Tuesday, March 26th 2013

I thought I had trapped myself . verbs which end by de or te + d , but still pronounce id.

Tuesday, March 26th 2013

I wonder if the answer was wrong — appreciated pronounced d rather than id ?

Wednesday, March 27th 2013

hi
tnx teacher for teaching me
a bunch of flower for u.

    Tuesday, March 25th 2014

Hi Rebecca. In the question 4, appreciated final sound is id or d?, I answered id, would you mind explaining me why it is incorrect?, thanks for your help.

Saturday, June 8th 2013

Good lesson!

Tuesday, July 23rd 2013

Hi rebeca. I have the same question of jose delgado. Is it correct the pronunciation of appreciated with d instead of id?

Tuesday, July 23rd 2013

Good Video, Keep Going!

Sunday, August 18th 2013

Thanks Rebecca! I need more practice. But you are helping me out improving my English skills

Saturday, August 31st 2013

Hi Rebecca! Than kou very much for this lesson. I got a 90 on the quiz, but I really have a doubt. The answer I had wrong was that one about the pronunciation of the verb “appreciated”. According to your explanation and to the grammar I have learned so far, the final “ed” in this case should be pronunciated as “id”, nevertheless, the system tells me that it should be “d”. I’d like you to explain that to me, please.

Thursday, September 12th 2013

very helful. thanks so much miss

Thursday, September 19th 2013

I was confused about the quiz. I got 6 correct out of 10 :( I should be careful about pronunciation. Never give up! Thank you, Rebecca :)

Saturday, October 19th 2013

Thursday, October 31st 2013

Thursday, October 31st 2013

Tuesday, July 15th 2014

APpRECIATED is written with “TED”
why this word is not pronounced with “ID” ?

Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

thanks so much

Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

Thank you so much for the video. I’m having one question regarding the quiz: Can it be that it is a little programming mistake regarding pronunciation of ed – in appreciated? – I clicked on – – id and it was shown as a mistake and the solution was shown as being – d. When I pronounce the word – appreciated – I have the feeling that I pronounce the ed ending – as id and not as d. – – I love all your work and also appreciate all your effort. My lines here should not come as a complaint at all. It’s just a small hint. It can happen. – thanks again for your work . best wishes, Rachel
