thscan sound like a
z? Or that
ttcan sound like
d? In this lesson, we look at ways to pronounce some common vocabulary that English learners often find difficult or confusing. Beyond the ten words we cover in the video, I’ll share my pronunciation methods, so you can apply the techniques seen here to learn other difficult words.
Thank you Adam for helpful lesson.
Thank you Adam .
Great lesson . You are just getting me out of a infamous difficulty . Before this lesson , I was unable to pronounce any of these words correctly except ” confortable”
In most part of dictionnaries , we can’t find IPA for plural words .
I will definitely add merriam webster to my favorite sites list .
One of the interesting words is “ewe” which pronounce “you” and means sheep!
Yes indeed, Zahra :)
fantastic word (ewe)female sheep
new word I ever heard like this word
where is the one who gets my soul drunken without wine…
i got just 6/9 …too bad
Not too bad, Akramkrimo. With practice it’ll go up ;)
igot 5 right/dont feel bad
Great work Adam. I’m American citizen but not native speaker and this lesson help me to sounds like native speaker.
You are great
Thank you Adam! I used to struggle to use the words “these” and “those” with the words “months” and clothes”, but after your video I can do it easily. I can even think better and faster!
7/9 thank you after this lesson I pronounced the word: comfortable better
Thank you Adam
I cant watch your video I don’t know what the problem is
Thanks for useful video lessons
Maybe the server was down. can you see it now Assiri?
Thank you, teacher very useful…..!!
Excellent lesson.Thank you,Adam.
Thanks Adam!!Really helpful lesson ;)
Lessons about pronunciation are always the welcome. They are essential.
Thanks Adam. A smile:)
Adamsın Adam. Teşekkürler.
My pleasure Tarik :)
these are really the difficult pronunciation for noun native speaker thanks for the lesson
Excuse me!is there any lesson on how to write diffrent types of composition…for example..Descriptive,narrative,argumentative and story writing…???
Not yet, Alison, but I will make a lesson about this soon on my other channel, writetotop.com
Thanks a lot Sir Adam..
English pronunciation is always confusing
Dear Adam, could you please help us how to spell “world”? Could you recommend a website or book to learn syllables as per scholars learn? Tks a million. You are the best.
You can find syllable breakdowns and phonetic spellings in good dictionaries. You can try merriam-webster.com. They spell world like this: wər(-ə)ld.
Thank you Adam
Go ahead !
The pronunciation of such words is important, interesting, and difficult. I ‘m sure if I want to speak like a native speaker I must learn how to speak these words properly. I really enjoyed this lesson. Thank you, Adam. You’re a great teacher.
Thank you for your lesson
Thanks Teacher Adam,
Although it found little difficult to answer the questions, I believe myself to pronounce those words nearly accurate.
Good stuff Ye. That matters more than the score :)
i got a bad mark on it
otherwise, good lesson
No worries Valessa. Keep trying :)
Thank you Adam for this interesting lesson.
The pronunciation help from all engvid teachers are really very fantastic.
So I understand the US and UK TV-news better and better.
Thick thumb up all of you !!! :-))))))
Hi Adam. I appreciate your work, indeed. In this spirit, it would be very helpful to see the difference between verbs RAISE and RISE. For me, they are super confusing and sometimes I think they are using interchangeably which is false. Best
You should watch this video:
Thanks adam ,I’m sooooo happy to learn Eng. from you
Thank Adam your lesson has enlighten me a lot with those English words cited.
We know that this subject is too hard….
I would like to attending in a face-to-face class or on-site (Toronto), and I want to know how I can contact you for information about that.
I actually just moved to a different country. Unfortunately, I do not offer online classes, but I am making other videos on my site (writetotop.com). Maybe these can help.
Thanks Adam. This was extremely useful session
You got 7 correct out of 9.
Thank you!It was an useful lesson for me!
I would like to attending on-site, and I would like to know how I can do that please.
We do not have an Engvid school, only online videos. I hope these help.
My worst result, 6/9
No worries Dodik. It’s just practice.
Got 78/90 ☺Thanks Adam. Nice lesson.
Adam, thanks of lot for your very interesting and detailed classes. I just love your lessons!
How come you know my questions.
These are I really need to know.
Thank you Adam

Thank you Adam.
Thank you for the interesting lesson. I always have difficulty to pronounce the words “word” and “work”. It seems I pronounce them like “world”. Would you please make a video about these words?
I’ll see what I can do Amy :)
Adam, could You br so kind to do the lesson about IPA? Without hearing of pronunciation it`s difficult to learn.
I’ll see what I can do Polina :)
Thank you Adam.
Hi teacher Adam, i’m very happy to join your english course. I trust to learn a lot because I love english and I want to speak fluently.
Congratulations for your help.
Welcome Logrid :)
Hi Adam. How are you? Thank you for this lesson.
And here’s my jokes.(Seems to me new Russian jokes are old American ones). Let’s get started!
1 – Where will you fly to spend your vacation?
– I’m scared to fly…
– So you can drink vodka before the flight!
– When I drink vodka I feel not bad here in
2 A young couple passes near two old women into
the (hall). One of old women:
– And what did he find in her? Skinny, in
glasses. And he is so nice, so (visible) and a
– Seems to me … good analyzes.
3 A woman applies to a police station: “I lost my
husband!” They ask her about his (features) and
his habits. And then they ask her:
“What should we say him when we will find him?”
A woman:” Tell him my mom decided to not come!”
4 On vacation:
– Miss, why are you so pale and (untanned)?
– I’m from Tver(a town in Russia).
– What the …. don’t you have a summer?
– I was working that day…
Thank you for attention and I hope you will improve my mistakes.
I like these jokes. Except #2…not sure I get it.
There are some infections which people might get during the 6ual contact. She hasn’t them…
Adam,by the way “She hasn’t them…” – is it OK or I should say “She hasn’t got them…”&”She doesn’t have them…”??? Thank you.
Hasn’t by itself doesn’t really work. Hasn’t got or doesn’t have are ok.
Got 7/9. Bad… Thanks!
THANKS ALOT MAN.
Got 9/9 Thanks
Very nice lesson, thanks Adam
Hi, Teacher, great lesson, I found out I made some pronounce mistakes; Thanks.
Thank you everybody :)
I got 9/9 :D
Dear Adam! You are a great specialist in PHRASAL VERBS. When you have free time, I kindly ask you to make a lesson about PHRASAL VERBS with the verb SETTLE. Thank you in advance.
Hi, Adam. It might be a not appropriate question for the topic, but anyway. My current English level is about Intermediate and recently I faced a problem of increasing my vocabulary.
I’ve been learning words on one site via cards. But now I’ve got more than 3000 words there and the amount keep increasing. It takes some time to at least review them :) And that’s becoming a problem. What would you recommend me in this case?
I thought about just giving up learning words via cards and just read/listen/watch videos, so that words that I see frequently would be memorized automatically
And I wonder how people populate their vocabulary having high levels, like advanced
I actually just made a video about this on my other channel. Let me know if this helps:
I even subscribed and pushed the like button :D I think it’ll help. Practice, practice, 100% practice, okay
May I request that you make a video tutorial on Simple Future tense, Future progressive tense, and future perfect. Thank you.
I’ll see what I can do Darwin.
Thank you so much, Adam. Love your lessons, it helps me to improve my English.
Thank u so much,
Adam, I got 9/9 on the quiz
good explanation thanks Adam
I got 8/9 except of “quarrel” word which I didn’t know that it was pronounced differently. Thank you a lot!
well done and you will Valmmira
I got 8/9 except of “quarrel” word which I didn’t know that it was pronounced differently.
8 correct of 9,not bad! thanks for the lesson Adam.
thanks again Adam!! it was a good tip!
Thank you for this nice video, Adam! Some words are really complicated to pronounce. Then we need to be careful when we use them. On the other hand, in my opinion, the British standard tends to be more orthodox and phonetic than the North American pronunciation.
Good luck to you in this new phase of your life! I wish you all the best in the new country where you are based now!
Hello.Thank you for video. Could you make video about sound TH. It’s hard to say it for Non-native speakers.
I got 8/9 except of “quarrel” word which I didn’t know that it was pronounced differently. Thanks so much

Hi Dear Adam I have a question I didn’t understand the first website you exposed for this lesson Please mention it below
You are always great but nobody can take off from my mind That English is SO difficult….but i am going on to love it:-)
I’ve a question for you:
