Hi Emma
Thanks a lot for the a mazing lesson about the pronunciation of DU. I’ve a little comment on this. I noticed that the D (only the D) is changed to j and the u remains u; so the tittle of your lesson should go ” The pronunciation of the letter D when followed by the letter U”. Thanks again for the oustanding job you are doing.

I’m a Spanish ESL student and, although I can watch TV without any subtitles and I write in something similar to English, even the easiest tongue-twister sounds like complete gibberish when I try to pronounce it at a slightly faster rate. Is there something wrong with me?

Could you please make a video on how to differentiate the letter “O” and letter “U” in words such as “HOT” and “HUT” or “LOCK” and “LUCK”…and if it is not much asking how to pronounce letter “s” and letter “ss”at the beggining, mid and at the end of the words!
