Hi Teacher, I have a little problem with the words “bitch” and “beach”, I guess the same rule applies for this two words, thank you.

Thursday, November 26th 2009

    beach sounds like BEE-ch, bitch sounds like bi-tch (like the i in “IT”), c

      Hi, thanks for this super lesson. It’s difficult to all spanish, portuguese and french people to see the difference.
      (Cause i’m all of that at once ^^)
      Now I know that it’s like the sound “é” in french, spanish and portuguese.
      I put “ai zénk darai ém ohosom” in google translate “Spanish to English” than I clicked in the pronunciation button at the spanish side and …

I think pronunciation is very important when you pronounce a foreign language. But sometimes very confusing! Thanks for your help to understand the difference of e and i vowels. Very clear explanation. Now I get it.

Friday, November 27th 2009

    to improve your listening — watch american or british tv shows with sub-titles in english so you can understand what they are saying!
    listen to english music and follow along with

    Saturday, November 28th 2009

      the lyrics (song words).
      you can also watch movies with sub-titles!
      hope that helps!

      BUT I WOULD LOVE TO GO AGAIN!!! THANKS

          Tuesday, November 29th 2011

    i allways watch english tv shows -series and i lissen english music from young age. But my problem is i cant find anyone to practise.
    So when i need to speak english i allways make pronunciation or grammer mistakes.

    Its realy nice to watch your lessons but just watching is not solving speaking problem….

    thanks for lessons

Ronnie,

Hi, What is the world’s average score for IELTS General Training? Please if you know this information let us share it with you. I am dissapointed today because of my IELTS result and I was really expecting a higher score and I might submit a re-mark request soon. I would appreciate your feedback.

Thursday, December 3rd 2009

I will try my best to learn it better

Friday, December 4th 2009

Thank you

Really now I get it.

Saturday, December 5th 2009

Ronnie ,your classes are so cool that we can learn English laughing.I have a big doubt in English, I would like to know what is the difference when we use -ING and TO after LIKE, the meaning changes?

thks

xoxo

Saturday, December 5th 2009

    Gerunds (v-ing) and Infitives (to+v) both function as NOUNS, so there is no real difference (grammar wise).

    Both answer the questions “WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY?” or “WHAT DO YOU DO ON YOUR FREE TIME?”
    Answers could be “I like reading and cooking” or “I like to read and to cook”

Ronnie, congratulations on the tips! I am an English teacher from Brazil and the lessons on engvid help me and my students a lot. I like to see the videos to get ideas on how to help them learn. As a teacher I am always learning too. Thanks a lot. :) I loved the idea of the “i” sound when you drew an eye! It´s impossible to forget after seeing that!

Wednesday, December 16th 2009

i’m cannot speaking english

Thursday, December 17th 2009

Hello Ronnie (is it from Ronald? I’m not sure …!)

Your lessons are very good but sad to tell you that you speak deeply in your nose and hearing you is the most hard part of your lesson for us as the English leaners from other countries. Please try to understand that we are only beginners in English (not your pals that you meet everyday). I know that you cannot do anything to change your way of speaking therefore I suggest you to put subtitles (closed captions) on your video so it would be a great help to all of us. We love you!

Friday, December 18th 2009

Thanks for this ,and previous lessons ,but if you explain how we can pronunce single “e” for example “bet” it will be good for all students because i can not make difference when I wanna pronunce,”bet”,”beat”,”bit”.

I wiil be thankful to for ever.

Thursday, May 6th 2010

Hi Ronnie,
I’m an ESL teacher and I’m currently tutoring Russians using Skype. They also have a problem with ee and i. Thank you for sharing your lesson. It’s great to see other Canadians teaching ESL. Do you have ideas on how to teach forming the ee and i sound? I have many students that can’t hear the difference….Thanks Shari White

Sunday, May 9th 2010

Hi Ronnie,
I’m in canada now,i wanna know how to use in,on,at,to,by,is,of etc.. thanks george..

Tuesday, May 11th 2010

Hey, I’ve got a question, is there anything else except longitude in the difference between these sounds? People don’t often speak slowly sometimes it can be difficult to say “eee” and sometimes it can be opposite “Tiiim” “Where are you, T(iii)m?” I’ve been listening to a pronounciation course for two days,I cannot catch the difference when a person speaks fast. They are both so similar to each other… There’re a lot of schemes of these sounds on the net but unfortunately they didn’t all apeare useful for me. In fact this video is only a beginning of an introduction of these sounds. Please, explain it again.But in this time, show it in the middle of words, at the end,with different letters and speed. And, please, make a good picture… Thanks.

Friday, June 11th 2010

thank you so much for this helpful lesson.

Sunday, June 27th 2010

Hi Ronnie,

Your pronunciation lessons are really helpful. Would you please elaborate how to pronounce mail and male.

Tuesday, June 29th 2010

Hi Ronnie

I have a big problem with the pronunciation of “ea” I do not understand when ea is like “eee” sound and when is like “e” sound, for explame, why the pronunciation of head is different of mean, or the pronunciation of steak is different of beach. Can you clarify me the exception of the rule.

Thanks you.

Thursday, July 15th 2010

    There are always exception to the rule. The “ea” in STEAK is pronounce like a long Aa sound as in mate (meit) or wait (weit). There are 3 different sounds of “ea” 1. Long ee as in READ, TEAM; 2. short e as in HEAD (hed), BREAD (bred); 3. eh sound as in BEAR (behr), WEAR (wehr).

    I hope this helps!!!!

    Friday, June 17th 2011

Ronnie you are amazing!!Thank you, so so much!!!

Sunday, July 18th 2010

hi ..Ronnie,could you pleas help me..about the Helping VERB..well you explain it to me,LIKE V,PHRASE..MAIN VERB…HELPING VERB..HOW can I use it?

Monday, July 19th 2010

    Basically, HELPING VERBS are verbs which needs another VERB in a sentence. The most commonly used HELPING VERB is the for of BE (is am are). But BE Verbs can be a main verb as well.

    BE as MAIN VERB (no other verb in a sentence)
    I am a teacher.
    She is a cook.

    BE as HELPING VERB (there’s another verb in a sentence)
    I am teaching.
    She is cooking.

    There are several HELPING VERBS like HAVE, DO and the MODALS (can, must).

    I hope this helps!!!

    Friday, June 17th 2011

Hi,
I watched the videos in this webpage but I cannot find one video where it can explain about rules of speeling like use “i” before “e”. I will apreciate your help.
Thanks.

Monday, August 16th 2010

    Rules in English are never 100% but it is… “i after e, except after c”.

    Wednesday, November 10th 2010

      E after I
      As in : believe , field , and piece.
      EXCEPT :
      1- After C
      As in : receipt,receive,and ceiling.
      2-When (EI)sounded long (a)like the one you hear in make ,may,and train.
      As in :neighbor,weigh,vein,and eight.
      3-General exceptions:
      Either,neither,weird,seize,height,
      leisure,and foreign.

      Monday, August 13th 2012

Hi Ronie. I loooovee yours explanations! It makes the difficult sounds easy.
Please help with a doubt from a lot of people here in Brazil – The pronunciation of Word and World. Is it really difficult?

Thursday, August 19th 2010

    word = “were d”
    world = “were -ld” or “whirl-d”

Tuesday, November 23rd 2010

    Basically, a HOUSE is the structure where you eat, sleep, etc. A HOME is a place that gives you joy and all that mushy stuff.
    Revenge is basically a noun and Avenge is a verb. As in
    1. Revenge is best served cold. (NOUN, SUBJECT)
    2. I will avenge my family. (Verb).

For people from Spanish speaking countries I can say that it’s really hard for us to distinguish between these two sounds, but I could say the sound for ‘ea’ and “ee” is like the “i” in Spanish and the “i” used in ‘fit’ or ‘shit’ sounds more like the ‘e’ in Spanish, but not exactly.

Thursday, February 16th 2012

Hi Ronnie,
Gr8 video! Thank you very much! I’m having a bit problem with ‘work’ and ‘walk’, also ‘Sun’,’Son’,’song’. Do you have any tips could help me out? Really appreciate:)

Sunday, February 26th 2012

    Work sounds like WERE-K
    Walk sounds like WAH-K (open your mouth to say WAH!)
    Sun and son are exactly the same! And song is saw+ng!

    Monday, February 27th 2012

      Brilliant! Thank you so much!:)

      Tuesday, February 28th 2012

Dear Ronnie, i have learnt lots from your videos. Thanks you very much.

Ronnie, what’s the difference between the pronunciation of the words’ light’, ‘ right’, and ‘write’?

I look forward to hearing from your reply. Thanks in advanced.

Sincerely,
FONG

Wednesday, March 21st 2012

Thanks a lot, Ronnie.

Speaking of pronunciation, Ronnie, im confused what the pronunciation /d / in the special cases like the word ‘ used’, ‘ loved’ and so on. I knew the pronunciation / d/, but im no sure the pronunciation /use-d/ same as /used/. Is it correct?

Second question is IS it we should use pronunciation /t/ in all of the words which have ‘t’ like the words ‘yogurt’,’commitment’ and etc?. Am i right?

I need your help. Your apply is appreciated. Thanks again, Ronnie.

With regards,
FONG

Wednesday, March 21st 2012

    Yes, /use-d/ is the same as /used/.
    yes, you should use pronunciation /t/ in all of the words which have ‘t’ like the words ‘yogurt’,’commitment’!!!!

Hi, dear Ronnie
Whey does the letter (I)in some words like (Christine) sounds like long( E)
as in( meet )rather than long (I) as in( time ) or even thort (I) as in (tin)?
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

Hi! Ronni, can you tell where to use word “apartment”and where “the house”.

Saturday, June 23rd 2012

    Apartment is a unit in a building that you rent. It has no yard.
    A house is a separate dwelling that has a yard or property around it.

Hi Ms. Ronnie,
Magaz(i)ne.
Mezzan(i)ne.
Mach(i)ne.
Mar(i)ne
Christ(i)ne.
Why do all these(I) above sound long(E) as in(meet),not long (I)as in (line),or even short (I)as in (tin)?
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
By the way, congratulation the new R lesson and the new blouse,It has a unique colour.

Hi Ronnie,
I got a question about how to pronounce ‘ I ‘ . Sometime it pronounces ‘ I’ but sometime it pronounce ‘ e’ .
E.g. Crisis, either, lit, light, and many more.
Could you help me to differentiate the sound for the letter ‘I’ please?
Thank you

In Romanian language, the two vowels sound(audible)is very similar, but “with the observation” it is pronounced exactly the opposite.

hi..Ronnie …i am learning British accent ..if i watch movies or videos comes with American accent ,will it affect my learning??

Saturday, July 19th 2014

Yes, /use-d/ is the same as /used/.
yes, you should use pronunciation /t/ in all of the words which have ‘t’ like the words ‘yogurt’,’commitment’!!!!

thanks teacher ronnie !!!!!!

Wednesday, August 27th 2014

Before, i was confused because my native language is spanish but now i get!

Tuesday, September 16th 2014

hi,my teacher:)it was very good lesson.thank you so much:)

Monday, January 19th 2015

Hi Ronnie. This lesson was very good to me because I have much difficulty with these two letters, but my biggest difficulty is to know when I use an open I, as in the word life, that sounds as lífe (with accentuation), and when I use a close I, like in the word live. So this is my difficulty, someone said me that It’s just possible with listening, because each word has their own sound, but I would like If you have any clue or technic (or video already done), share with me please.
