hesham10

    thanks adam very good lesson

    salmane

      Yep! I agree with you, it was a great lesson.

      Regino

        I’m much more interested in getting my ideas acrossed than sounding like a native speaker.

        In the end, communication is what matters.

        What do you think about it?

        Regards

        Regino

    I like it! Please try to make some more videos about pronunciation! it helps a lot:)

    daivikpatel195

Thank you,but when we will be able to speak English?

al1964ok

    Hi Al1964ok,

    To tell you the truth, it all depends on you. The more you practice and work, the faster it’ll come.
    :)

    Adam

      thank you. My friends often laugh at my pronunciatioon. They said I pronouned bad. I’m really sad. Thanks for your video. It’s really helpful.

      caothao

      Thanks !!

      It is said that theory and practice go hand in hand, but it is the putting into practice what really makes the difference.

      Practice makes perfect!!!

thank you Adam, as always your videos are very helpful ! and also thanks for recommend us websites such as ted.com. Could you please recommend us a website, app or forums where we can find native speakers or english students from all around the world to talk and chat with them so we can improve our skills ???

xavier0912

    Hi Xavier,

    I’m sure if you Google it you’ll find something. I haven’t had much personal experience with this, so can’t say for sure. I will keep my eye out for these things and let you know.

    Adam

      Hi Adam,

      Thanks so much for such fantastic lesson.
      From your reply to Xavier, you wrote: “I will keep my eye out for these things and let you know.” Here I have got a query about using the phrase of “keep my eye out for something” and “keep my eye on something for someone”. Are these 2 phrase different in meaning? Under what kind of context can I use them properly and respectively? I know this video has been posted for quite a long time. Hopefully, I wont be too late and really hope you will read this message. Once again, thank you for your teaching.

      Looking forward to your kind reply.

      Winsome

    a lot of time have passed, but if you still need site for speaking with people around the world. there it is https://www.gospeaky.com I personally use this site and I find it quite helpful.

    Cheesorable

Hey Adam, thank you so much for your explanation. I like and respect your way of teaching!!! It’s really simple, plain and understandable for everyone! I just wanna ask you for the 2nd and, perhaps, the 3rd part of this video. Because to pronounce like a native speaker is my last barrier in order to achieve my goal. THANK YOU ONE MORE TIME, ADAM.

supershaquille

    Hi Supershaq,

    I’ll get to it ASAP :)

    Adam

Thankss a lot Adam
I really need this lessons

thanks you

alawiialqrsh

Does it works even for british accent? Please answer me becuase I want to learn british pronunciation

Konigxtiger

    Hi Konigxtiger,

    Yes, it works for all languages actually. The ideas are the same everywhere–it’s just a matter of adjusting them to the language you want. You’ll have to listen to British native speakers and figure out where they squeeze and blend their words. Of course they pronounce different words differently, so that will affect the connections. It’s all about practice and training the ear.

    Adam

      I wish more lesson like this from you. :( You are the best teacher I’ve ever known. Simple but very detailed.

      pal.0104

thank you adam ! my first problem in english is the pronunciation via native speakers .

Rania Abdallah

Thank you very much teacher

Mariam Grigoryan

very good

ebi82

Totally agree with you Adam, good pronunciation it takes a lot of time and practice + patience. By the way, I confuse pronunciation of these two words: patience and patient.
Thank you for your tips

Jesús R.

    Hi Goodman,

    These are pretty straightforward:
    patience- ends with a hard ‘s’ sound, while patient, ends with a soft ‘t’ sound.
    Hope that helps

    Adam

that is exactly what i want
linked sound
thank you adam

abo abdou

very good help, but understand more a British than an American

Hector Flores

    Hi hector,

    It’s just a matter of adjustment. Pay attention to how words are linked in either form nd you’ll see the ideas are the same.

    Adam

Hey! I got 10 of 10. I know that there is no quiz to this lesson. But I entirely taked in a new knowledge from your explanation. And I believe that every (ev’ry) person can quickly improve his pronunciation by more PRACTISING and by LISTENING to native speakers. =)

Armen

I would add three things to the video:
1. Adam, you mentioned the dʒ sound (d+y), but you forgot to add also important sound — tʃ (t+y), which you can often hear when people say “what you” or “that you”.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr2BePfVll8

2. The next thing is silent “t” in words like “internet”, “interview”, “center”, etc. I’ve noticed that you pronounced “t” in the word “internet”. And I’m thinking about the word you wrote on the board — “interesting”. It also has “nt”, but I don’t recall if someone ever said this word without “t”. :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9ACQRcTvlI

3. Also it’s very important to know what a “flap t” is. For instance, when the letter “t” is between two vowels. Adam, you pronounced it in the phrase “not at all”, even twice. :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUupfHhOnHg
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FDjhKY8HwM

Adam, you didn’t pronounce “r” in “comfortable”, but Americans in the states do it. They also shorten the word to three syllables, so they say it like this: [‘kʌmf dəɹ bəl] , and I also do it in this way, but you know, I’m mostly interested in American pronunciation, so I hear it all the time, and I got used to it. :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWNySmK01fg

morfik

    Nice tips Morfik. To be honest though, I could spend hours on this topic. It wouldn’t work too well on this site.
    Mostly, it’s the ideas. After all, different accents and regions will come into play here, but it’s about learning to train the ears to pick apart the linked sounds.

    Adam

      nice reply Adam. Fair enough

      Anurak

thanks you adam

tranducquanueh

I also wanted to ask about the difference between “besides” and “anyway”? After you told me I made that mistake, I went to ask google this question, and I found some things to discuss about. First of all, two links:

http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ask-teacher/157157-besides-anyway.html
http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=2247707&langid=21

There are some examples:

•They didn’t have any trainers in my size, and [besides/anyway] I’d already decided I’d rather save the money.
•I need the money. And [besides/anyway], when I agree to do something, I do it.
•I don’t want to go to the cinema with him! [Besides/Anyway], I’ve already seen this film.
•Mother certainly won’t let him stay with her and [besides/anyway] he wouldn’t.

The question was: which one should be used in the statements above. The answer was:

“Both are possible in all your sentences with virtually the same meaning – suggesting that what went before is not important.”

I know that the two words are used when you want to add something to your previous thought, but I see them in this way:

Let’s say that we are talking about a problem, and you’re trying to explain me the thing that I don’t get. After an hour, you would give up, and I would say “I still don’t get it. Anyway, thanks for help.”. You were trying, but you’ve failed, so that’s why I would use “anyway”. :)

Now “besides”. Reading your previous comment, I wondered — why didn’t I use the “btw” shortcut? I should’ve used it, and now it’s obvious to me. Anyway, this doesn’t matter now. In the example with problem to be solved, I said I would use “anyway”, but I wouldn’t use “besides” there. Would you agree? In my mind “besides” and “anyway” mean “in addition to something mentioned before”, but now I’m not sure if I can use it in not related topics. So, if we go back to previous comment, I used “besides” to show that in addition to what I wrote in that comment, I wanted to thank you for the hint you gave me in the other comment.

The other thing is: if you look at the four examples I gave, and if you agree that we can use either one of the two words, so when you would preffer to use “besides” and “anyway”?

morfik

    I wouldn’t necessarily agree that they’re interchangeable. In my mind, ‘anyway’ means, forget what came before, or despite what came before, it doesn’t really matter.’besides’ I would use to mean in addition to, or consequently.
    so:
    They didn’t have any trainers in my size, and anyway, I’d already decided I’d rather save the money.
    •I need the money. Besides, when I agree to do something, I do it.
    •I don’t want to go to the cinema with him! Besides, I’ve already seen this film. (here I might use anyway to deflect emphasis from the fact that I don’t want to go with him)
    •Mother certainly won’t let him stay with her and he wouldn’t anyway.

    Notice that in the last one I moved it to the end of the sentence; you can’t do that with besides. Here it means ‘in any case’.

    Adam

      I know exactly what you mean. I would even move the “anyway” in the last example. So, I don’t know what actually was wrong in that comment. Anyway, I think the two words have exactly the same meaning to me. :)

      morfik

        make your own video sir! Get a life instead debating with a great teacher. I don’t even have an idea why are you here just to suggest your unnecessary opinion. If you are a great speaker you can explain what you’ve desire in a short simple and detailed note. Your COMMENTS ARE LONGER THAT I WOULD THINK YOU WANT TO MAKE MOVIE!

Very nice lesson, Adam! Thank you!

Janilza

Hello Adam , Thank you for the lesson !

I need your help with something , what is right one between these 2 sentences ?
1- At a certain point in our lives , we all have been obsessed with an Anime character

or
2- At a certain point in our lives , we have all been obsessed with an Anime character

thanks in advance

AhmadElsayed92

    Hi AhmadElsayed92
    I would use “we all have been obsessed”
    But do not take me as a reference
    I am learning English too

    Jesús R.

    I think It doesn’t matter, but I prefer “we all”.

    morfik

    it sounds better saying “we all”

    Cristina333

    Hi Ahmad,

    With all due respect to the others that commented on your question, I would go with we have all been…in a more informal style. Firstly, it allows for the contraction (we’ve all been…). secondly, if we take ‘we all’ as the complete subject, it allows us to break the verb into aux and main.
    That being said, both are correct.

    Adam

Thank you adam.Your lesson is very helpful.
I study hard !

kaoriy

helpful lesson.. thank you sir

lochana

What’s the first website he recommended?
Sounds like ‘tvset.com’? but it’s not. Could someone tell me? thanks.

iBalintha

    I think it’s ted.com…

    Janilza

    Janilza is right, it is ted.com

    Adam

why in the word “interesting” you wrote it “in chre sting”.. for me sounds more like “in tre sting”.. any thought.. I speak spanish by the way…

karl0z

    Hi Karl0z,

    It depends where you live. In Canada, I think you would here chr rather than tre. In the US it might be different in different regions.

    Adam

As always, very useful! Thanks a lot, Adam.

claudio77

Thanks a million Adam it’s so very useful video but pleas in the end of you video u told us about a website to listen to with native speakers but i can’t catch it’s name at all please write it to me :) thx

Neat Man

    He said ted.com! It’s a site with educational talks about all kinds of things. There are also transcripts for each talk to make it easier to follow along.

      Thanx a million ;)

      Neat Man

that is very interesting lesson for me. Thanks

pj-infest

Extremely good lesson. well, sir Adam’s lessons are always very good and very useful.
The you teach is awesome really awesome.

WELL, I WOULD LIKE YOU TO ANSWER MY ONE QUESTION
MY QUESTION IS BELOW-

‘DENNY AND ANNA ARE TO MEET,SOMEWHERE’
COULD YOU PLEASE TELL,WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND WHY
WE USED PREP.’TO’ HERE?

WELL —– DENNY AND ANNA = NAMES

sona123

    “they are to meet” – means ” they are due to meet” or “they will meet”(because they scheduled this before)

    arinamg

    Hi Sonu,

    In this construction, the ‘are to’ suggests that they have already made plans and are scheduled to meet somewhere (and I assume at a particular time as well). It basically means supposed to.
    “I am to meet my new roommate tomorrow”. I am supposed to meet him tomorrow. It’s not a very common construction, but it generally follows this rule.

    Hope that helps.

    Adam

SORRY, I FORGOT THE WORD ‘WAY’ BETWEEN ‘THE’ AND ‘YOU’

sona123

Please add Quiz for this lesson.

dhiraj1mumbai

    Hi Dhiraj1,

    It’s a little irrelevant to have a paper quiz for a pronunciation lesson. If you have any particular question, though, I might be able to spell out something.

    Adam

Thanks so much teacher Adam!
It was so interesting and useful for me. Thanks for broad explanation.

MotherNature

Thank you Adam!

Carolina xoxoxoxo

Dear Adam. Thank you for that interesting lesson. It will really help me to improve my listening and understanding skills of native speakers accents. There are some useful tips in this lesson. Now, I have a question : is the accent that’s really important when speaking a language, or, is it the quality (correct vocabulary and so on) of the language that really matters? Thank you. Keep up the good lessons!

Medusa

    Good question Medusa,

    I’d say both. It doesn’t matter how good your command of the English is if the person you are speaking with can’t understand you because of your accent. I met a few Irish and British people in my travels who spoke perfect English to me, but I had no idea what they were saying :)

    Adam

Very nice attitude, Thanks :)

    Hi Abdel,

    The 14:00 is 2:00 on the 24-hour clock. It is used to make sure you don’t mistake a.m. and p.m. It also saves on ink ;)

HANOI

I have two more questions:

1. I noticed that when someone puts the letter “a” before a noun, it sometimes sounds differently. I’m not sure if something affects the sound but normally people pronounce it as /ɑː/ (I think) but sometimes they make /eɪ/ sound. I don’t know what I should think about this. Could it be that people just interchange them?

2. This is about the word “me”. People usually pronounce it like /mi/ , but I have some songs in which it’s pronounced more like /meɪ/ . I have a guy who sang the same song twice — once in album version and the second one was a live performance, and the pronunciation was different in each of those two cases. So, /mi/ or /meɪ/ should I choose, or maybe both are acceptable?

morfik

    1. have you heard ‘the’ as ee and a? ee is like ey for the ‘a’– used for emphasis (in the case of ‘a’ to emphasize one. in the case of ‘the’ to emphasize the one and only, the ___est of whatever).

    2. not really sure. might be a regional accent.

    Adam

      I found a perfect song, you can listen to it to be sure. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZnZgtZluvw

      I thought it’s an American band, but it turns out that it’s actually Canadian. :) But I also heard a few times the same “me” from American singers.

      morfik

Ok, just one more. :)

There’s a word “month”, and its plural form is “months”. I heard once that people should pronounce unvoiced “th” in month, but in the “months”, people can pronounce it just by using “t” sound. So, is that possible to shorten “ths” cluster to just “ts” in any word that have it, or is it just in this one?

I’ve also notticed other thing, for example words like “already” or “alright”. Is it ok to drop the “l” when the next letter is “r”? I know that people do it in those two words, so what do you think?

morfik

    people try to mouth the ths but it’s an awkward shaping and sound so people let it go at the ts sound. try saying 5/6 (five sixths) or 3/100 (three one hundredths) :)

    I think it’s common to drop the l when next to an r. unless it’s after the r and followed by a vowel sound; curl up. (kure.lup)

    Adam

      I know what you mean, it’s called “dark L sound” or something like that, and the sound isn’t written even in IPA. Anyway, I know the feature. :)

      morfik

Actually, I have another question, I know, I know, too many, but I really love this topic. :) Adam, you said that when one word ends with the same consonant that the other word begins, we should drop the first one, but what if the first word ends with “t” or “d” and the second one starts with voiced or unvoiced “th”?

morfik

    “can you heat this up for me?”
    can you hea thi sup…?
    although the th might come across as a soft d sound.
    old theater… old theater.
    lol. I’ll have to listen to myself speak and get back to you ;)

    Adam

how can i pronounce them? is there some rule?

2014premar

    ‘G’ remains silent in such cases.

    “Taught” as – “Tot”
    “Bought” as – “Bot”

    Hope it helps :)

Hello, dear Professor
I’m biology graduate student and I ‘ m going to give a TOEFL test. I am very glad that you are my teacher and I’m your student.
I download some your leason. Unfortunately I cannot access some of your files. I ‘m really wanted to learn English under your supervision.
Unfortunately, due to financial problems I can’t make preparing files that are not free anymore. I would be honored if I get guidance on this issue.
With thanks and best regards.

nazareno33

It’s very good video. I’m really grateful I found this amazing website. Help me a lot to improve my English. Now, every time I find difficulties when I learn English, I search the answers here. Unlike other English learning sites, EngVid gives clear and thorough explanations. It feels like having my private teachers all the time.
Thank you EngVid, and thank you Adam.

mercy mostafa

Dear Adam! Thank you very much for your lessons! I have a question about pronunciation. I’ve often heard when native Americans say “as you…” or “bless you…” it sounds like “azh you..” and “blesh you…”. Are there any rules for this or might it be a regional specific? Thanks in advance!

comrade

I saw this vedio 5 times and everythime I just repeat after you Adam and now I feel I started to have headache from myself :D

Emy adel

As for me, Adam’s pronunciation is the best of all the tutors’ here.

mx2048

    I think they are all great :) I like the way James and Rebecca give information, too. And Benjamin. They are all good professionals. But I like the way Adam explains everything. Even elementary level students understand him well and gain hope that they actually can learn this language successfully. I like this about him.

    EnglishRimma

Thank you so much Adam, you are really a good teacher! I have took a lot of English classes in different countries, and this is the first time that a Teacher talk about these pronunciation tips. THANK YOU. I found you ;)

yokaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Dear sir, Adam, thanks a lot for giving us your precious time. but sir I am a bit confused about it, because you have a good knowledge of English therefore you have taught this all to us, I am a student,as such i find difficult to which words should be squeezed, because most of dictionaries don’t tell us like that. There just given all syllables of words . I have got a dictionary of Oxford Advanced Learner and Contemporary Longman Dictionary but there has not been given a piece of advice that what words native speakers squeeze in their daily conversation. so sir please give me some pieces of advice about it. How can I know that what syllables should be squeezed? I will be waiting for your reply sir.

Nadiralimugheri

And sir to understand how many syllables that are being pronounced by the native speakers? is also difficult for me. What should I do ? What kind of videos should I watch?

Nadiralimugheri

Thanks a bunch, Adam! … You are really on of my favourite teachers I’ve ever had ! … Your methodology, voice, examples, etc. are excellent ! … I take my hat off to you! … On the other hand, I got 7 out of 9: I’m very happy, because this is one of the English grammar issues I’ve always had more problems to understand, but I feel I understood much better!… My best wishes and greetings from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, South America! G’day, my dear teacher and virtual classmates !

CaribbeanX

very good lesson
Thank you

Elenkaaaaaaaaaa

thank you……. this is the first vid for me

Dev-Mahmoud Awad

In TE resting = In CH resting

Adam, does it work always?

e.g. Po TE nt – in Oxford D. the “te” in this case sounds like “t” (or may be I’m wrong).

Thanks in advance.

Ramin87

Dear Adam,
It is a great lesson again, but some people say that in IELTS speaking test, accent is not acceptable, a person should speak in English in his or her own language accent with correct pronunciation. Is it true? I don’t agree.

fauzia110

Hello Adam,

Thank you for the tips. Sorry but I have a personal concern here. I’ve been living in Canada for more than 20 years, but I still cannot get rid of my accent which actually holds myself back from acting. I wonder if you have any tips for accent reduction? Thank you in advance.

bellasirena

Hi! Adam, I have a big question. Which is the right question when you want to ask someone before she/he got married: For how long were you dating before you get married? or How long did you spend as a couple?.

Thanks for your answer and happy holidays.

MarisolCaracol

it costs me to pronúnciate correctly the word Country, I thought it was using the T !!

cesar1964

Hi, TY for your lessons. How can i test for this lesson? where is button on the page? i am a new user

marxrundel

    Many of our pronunciation lessons do not have quizzes! For some topics, the best test is practice.

    engVid Moderator

Thank you for the lesson.

misogun

Adam, you’re a very competent person and I’d like to ask you something. I am not sure though that you would read comments here and answer)) Although I really need your opinion to clear one point. IELTS score 5 result indicates that the person has a pre-intermediate level of English precisely, right?

EnglishRimma

Thanks for the lesson!
