Ronnie, very good, as usual. Thanks for making this video. Could you please by the way make a video about the pronunciation of ed. Because as far as I know there are three different forms of pronouncing it. Like worked, played, etc, but I’m not quite sure how to pronounce it correctly. Same thing with the words ending in rty. Like party, shorty, etc

    Martin, very interesting name, my name is Marko, but my nickname is Martin derived from my surname which is Martinovic. You already have the lesson done here on EngVid by Rebecca if I am correct. As you said, only three ways of pronunciation, it’s quite simple…

    Friday, June 29th 2012

    Rebecca has already done a video for you! Search the site for “ed” endings!

      I have three sentences please guide me if thay are correct gramatically?
      NO 1: If you could give me an estimate how much it will cost me to repair this machine that would be great.
      NO 2: Dear viewers please tell me what kind of plant this is by leaving comments after watching this video.
      NO 3: Can you tell me what you want and what does she want?

      Saturday, June 30th 2012

        HI teacher plz help me.

        Saturday, June 30th 2012

        I’ll try to help you my friend as much as I can, hope it’ll be useful.
        NO. 1: If you could give me an estimate, how much would it cost me to repair this machine? That would be great.
        NO. 2: Dear viewers, please tell me what kind of plant this is by leaving comments after watching this video.
        NO. 3: Can you tell me what you want and what she wants? You can’t say “can you tell me what do you want” because you already have modal verb “can” starting the question.
        Look Aston512, I see what your problem is. You aren’t sure about asking questions, and how to formulate it. When you are asking a question, you always start with particular verb (modal, or auxiliary). E. g. Is she the best student in this class? I don’t know whether “SHE IS” the best student in this class. Did you see that it’s not “IS SHE” anymore, but “SHE IS”. What to say, practice, and I’m sure when Ronnie sees this problem, she will do a lesson on it. Ronnie, you heard me :D

          Ex: expertise -> ekzpertise
          Xerox you don’t say ekzerokz but zérokz
          I hope helped you.

Saturday, June 30th 2012

I’m not from korea and I’m japanise lad. I’m from Russia and we have the “R” sound maybe it pronounced a little bit different. But I think it the same for us to pronounce f istead “th” it don’t make common sense it’s justy another sound. In additional teacher lern us that “R” sound pronounced very smothly in Britain english. It seems to be a lie. ‘ Cause British people also pronpunce this sound I think

Saturday, June 30th 2012

Hi Ronnie. I watched your video, it’s cool. I don’t have any problem with “R” pronunciation cause in my native language we have it too. Yeah your site is very helpful ,thanks for video, hope see you soon !!!

Saturday, June 30th 2012

Hi, Roonie.
If we are talking about correct “spelling” in Chinese then I can say that second horizontal stroke in the lower part of the character should be written before vertical.
Thank you for video, waiting for advanced videos =)))

Saturday, June 30th 2012

Hey,Ronnie,,You did a great Job as usual..Fantastic. Finaly I can call your Name correctly.. Lovely Ronnie.
( Sounds L & R )….Masa ( Jap )

Saturday, June 30th 2012

Ronnie hey i like your style of understanding “R” pronunciation
thanks for this web side i pray for u .thanks.

Saturday, June 30th 2012

interesting lesson ….personally I don’t have any problem with the sound ”r”because in my language (Romanian) the sound is very strong…but I can’t say the “th” like in thought…it seems difficult and I usually say”s”…can you help me Ronnie by doing a video lesson on this? please…thank you!:)

Saturday, June 30th 2012

    There is already a lesson on TH! Search the site!

    Wednesday, August 8th 2012

Hi Ronnie, wondering if u can do another lesson with the R sound but this time.., them next to each other, like for example (powe”R” “R”anger / locke”R” “R”oom) because i think you forgotten it to add it to your lesson?

and also one more thing, me as a Filipino are having trouble pronouncing the letters F and P…, example: “F”acebook to “P”acebook, “F”orward to “P”orward, “F”ork to “P”ork also when im pronouncing “F”ilipino it sounded like “P”ilipino which is ok back in the Philippines, but now i migrated here in America.. so hope you can help me and the others, thanks!

Saturday, June 30th 2012

Hi teacher ronnie i have a small sentence plese check if it is correct. AS A TRAVELLER HOW MUCH CASH CAN I TAKE WITH ME? IS THIS SENTANCE IS CORRECT GRAMATICALLY?

Saturday, June 30th 2012

    Yes! Good work! But to make your sentence more natural you should ask “How much money should I bring”?

    Wednesday, August 8th 2012

I MEAN
AS A TRAVELER HOW MUCH CASH CAN I TAKE WITH ME?

Saturday, June 30th 2012

Sorry to bother you i have one more sentence please tell me if it is correct?
may i ask you what are we suppose to do sir?

Saturday, June 30th 2012

    May I ask you what we are supposed to do?
    But, the best way to ask this would be like this. May I ask you a question? What are we supposed to do? On this way, you can’t make mistake.

    Tuesday, July 3rd 2012

Monday, July 2nd 2012

    There is no difference at all, and here it goes example for you. All flights were cancelled (canceled) due to rain.

    Tuesday, July 3rd 2012

I want to know about both of word cancelled and canceled. How to use it in the sentence and how its differant ?

Monday, July 2nd 2012

    You have two accounts, don’t you? I may be wrong, but in any case, look up and see what you want to know, I already answered the same question.

Thursday, July 5th 2012

Hi Ronnie, I am a Canadian living abroad in Spain and have a 4 1/2 year old girl who I am patiently teaching english to since she was born. She has alot of difficulties pronunciating the letter R and D (comes out as an L sound). I have watched your video and I plan on teaching my daughter this technique from this very moment and am positive that it will give results. Thank you for your video!

Friday, July 6th 2012

    Wow! I hope she is doing well! Best of luck to her!

Sunday, July 8th 2012

Hi Ronnie,
first of all thanks a lot for everything you do. I’m italian and i think we have the opposite of the problem, we always use “R” and we even have to pronounce double R like in the word “Terra” that means world,earth,globe… a teacher told me ” don’t pronounce the R so strong, just think of it!

Monday, July 9th 2012

hel00000 ronnie ur just amazing nd ur lesson too. i have a question for u

the police is comming
the police are comming

which sentence is correct nd why?? pls explain me in detail

thnx in advance :)

Monday, July 9th 2012

    Are. Police= plural noun.

    Wednesday, August 8th 2012

Dear Ronnie, Happy 4th of July.
How do you write and pronounce the plural form of the alphabet and the numbers.for example, b+b=two b,should I put an( s)next to the (b).I am sure not in algebra.Also 2+2=two twos,Is that correct? your help is appreciated.

Monday, July 9th 2012

    Yes, you would say 2 B’s….You must ALWAYS use a “s” when there is more than one countable noun!!!

    Wednesday, August 8th 2012

Awesome!

Monday, July 9th 2012

Ronnie, I really enjoy your lessons!
Can you please explain this sentence – I tell them the books I want them to read.
Why so? I tell – I want. it’s really difficult to understand((

Monday, July 9th 2012

    A teacher is telling students what they have to read!

    Wednesday, August 8th 2012

Did you write 吳 or 吴? :)

Thursday, July 26th 2012

Ronnie, great video and technique for pronouncing “r.” I teach a group of Koreans and plan to show them this video and use your technique; however, I need to point out that down here in the U.S. we do pronounce the second “r” in rural. So when we say rural it sounds pretty much like it’s spelled – rur-al (or rer-al), not ru-al.

Friday, July 27th 2012

yap, u got that ‘吴’ right

Wednesday, June 19th 2013

Hi Ronnie. Any trick for Spanish speakers?

Sunday, July 14th 2013

Hi Roonie. I have a ask you. I know in British English “R” letter pronounce not so strong unlike American English. I want to know if it’s wrong in British English we emphasize “R” letter

Tuesday, July 23rd 2013

your opinion is right.
R sound pronunciation is very difficult to asian.

Wednesday, August 7th 2013

Italians also struggle to pronunce the R in english. But i think it sounds cool! =)

Also, an italian that have not studied enough may pronunce the R like a Scottish.

Some months ago i was unaware of how to pronunce the R but fortunally my first trip abroad was in Scotland so i had no problem xD haha

Thanks for the lesson Ronnie =)

Wednesday, August 14th 2013

Hi Ronnie, I want to ask you about how to use ‘tobe’ like below sentence, can you post the video to tech us about that.
Example:
1. Newspapers are not to be taken out of the room.
2. Who will the couple to be married invited?
I don’t know when I need to use ‘to be’, and how to translate this? Could you teach us?
Thanks so much.

Tuesday, October 22nd 2013

Hi,Ronnie,it’s not so difficult for Chinese to pronounce “R”,cause there are similar pronunciation with “R” in Chinese,for example,如(ru)、日(ri)、然(ran)and so on.Maybe you can ask your Chinese friends,or tell me your email,I will send you some audio.
