Thank you for your lesson.I just want to ask what is the difference between these two sentences.and this door remains unclock………………………….
I wish I could help you Cuang, but I did not quite get your question.
Bye for now.
Engaging topic for a lesson Jade, but at the same time challenging.
In my view, in order to sound like a native speaker what we first need is to become much more familiar with the English sound system.
Being exposed to reginal variations -of course- hels a great deal too.
Thanks for sharing this pronunciation video lesson with us.
I wish you could help my. Are you a surrogate teacher? You’re not Umberto Eco. Who are you? Where are you from? What are you doing?
Are you a spirit? Then, live in the virtual world and leave us alone.
I’m begging you. Enjoy yourself with spirits.
Has anyone asked for your infinite source of knowledge?
A student helping another student will most certainly sounds like this:
“You’re stupid, and since I’m quite awesome, shut up and learn!”.
It takes a teacher to know how to teach without becoming arrogant…
Thank for your lesson.what is the difference between these 2 sentences.and
Sorry to tell you but the right transcription of “can” is /kænt/
Sorry to correct you but it must be
without the “t”.
Ok again “can” /kæn/ and “can’t” /kænt/
I have heard both; /kæn/ and /ka:n/.
I think the pronunciation of “can” is different from countries. By the way, I have learnt it pronounced /kæn/ when I was a school student.
Thank you for your interesting lesson, Jade :)
I’m sorry to correct you both Lenin and Panda, but the pronunciation of can and can’t is different in UK and US English. :)
If you check the title of the video, it reads “…British English Pronunciation”. Hope this helps.
I read the title. The pronunciation of can /kæn/ is British. No need to correct my comment.
Thanks you for your lesson , It is hard lesson for me.
Thanks a lot, Jade! I love your pronunctiation tips.
Thanks for the lesson, it is a little bit difficult to me remember all the rules when speaking but it is helpful.
Hurray 10/10 (very rare this happen to me)
Jade doing what she does best, explaining how to pronounce. The seven rule is the more chaotic. Always I have to say “path” or “5th”, or “birth” I feel a bit insecure how I’ll sound….. Hihihihihi.
Very interesting lesson. Good stuff for improving the pronunciation, which is sometimes very difficult.
I also like to listen when Jade is talking.
Thanks a lot. I can understand what you said it.
thank you really useful for me that ı have noticed ı say always wrong can and cant..as pronunciation.
I got 8 of 10…very good but this lesson has been a bit difficult for me because i’ve recently start to improve my speaking english

Hi Jade,indeed you are a great teacher,thank so much.
I wish I had knew Engvid since the since the biginning.
Hello I just want to ask teacher James when I put my article (the) sentence in a detailed explanation if allowed I hope fast response
hello everybody, sorry but i don’t understand the meaning in french of “rhotic” what is the french for that word please ?
Unfortunately, it is just “rhotique”.
Thank you for your answer, can you explain me the meaning of rhotic ? i don’t understand…
rhotic is “used for describing an accent in which the speaker pronounces the letter ‘r’ after a vowel, as most American and Scottish speakers do.” (Macmillan English Dictionary) In this dictionary the ‘r’ in a rhotic accent is shown in brackets.
thank you David it is kind of you :)
Thanks it’s very useful thanks
Thank you Jade.It’s difficult for me.

A million thank you Ms Jade, it was really a handy lesson, because I’m learning English with the British accent, especially the southern one :) So thank you again, and I look forward to learning a lot from you :)
Thank you for the lessons, you’re a great teacher!
I’m not quite sure whether you read thsese comments and I don’t know where else I can leave my request either.. But anyway, if you do read could you plese make a lesson on the difference and meanings of such phrases as “Here we are”, “There you go!” etc.
number 10: The pronunciation of “can” and “can’t”:
I was sure that the correct answer is: “is always different”.
As you said “can” and “can’t” can always be distinguished clearly by the sound of the vowel, even if the “t” in “can’t” is not pronounced.
Dear Jade thanks a lot…
Iam new student here but i think that i will get good pronunciation from great school

Thank you Jade.Very good class.You are a good teacher.Congratulations!
thank .i have 9 of 10
I think the pronunciation is the most difficult for people who are learning English because we couldn’t be in professional pronunciation while we live in our country and we used to communicate with our own language . So , learning the basics of pronunciation are enough even we can express ourselves easily .Never waste your time while you are beginner in language .
This my views .
Wait, did she almost burst into tears at the very end of the video?
thank you very much Jade.
Thanks teacher Jade . Can you teach more of the right pronunciation in British accent? I really want to learn and teach my friend that also like to speak in British accent in our school. Thanks and Godbless
One of my favorite teacher now is you, Teacher Jade
don’t get the last question about the pronunciation of “can” and “can’t”. As far as I understand, it is always different, because “can” is [kæn] and “can’t” is [ka:nt] or [ka:n] according to this lesson. Did I get something wrong?
Thank you for the lesson, I learned a lot
thanks alot jade
thank you Jade!
help me with the pronunciation of “English”.

Hi Jade, you are so good….love to learn from you
10/10 Hi,Jade! Thank you for your lessons!
10/10 Hi,Jade! Thanks!
I don’t get why the cat footprints in the snow is wrong?
Oh, I got onto this site because I was trying to find out why Martin Roberts pronounces subsidence the way he does? The first time I heard him say it, I thought what is he talking about? But Lucy says it correctly. Is it a North South thing?
hahaha))) She can’t pronounce “Rrr” )) like kid:)
HI, pleease i need someone to answer me , in ENGLISH ACCENT we should pronounce the R only when it’s followed by a vowel sound but in the word HERE we pronounce it ”hia” which means that we didn’t pronounce the R while the E in HERE has a vowel sound ”shwa” so why don’t we pronounce the R ???????
Thank you for your help.
This is so helpful! Thank you so much now i think i can really improve my English.
this lesson is really helpful, thank you very much. especially “can” and “can’t” part, thanx again
It’s helful for me to improve my speaking skills. Thank you teacher.
thank you…the reason why i love english british,i like accent british english. :)
Hi Ma’am Jade.I could understand your lessons very well.Can you make a video on pronunciation of words having spellings “or” & “ro” ?
Thank you very much!
Your lesson is very helpful for me. Thank you very much!
Wow, very impressed! Jade, you explain in a very understandable manner, “th”ank you very much:)
Besides, in Russia we have the “rhotic” pronunciation too, so it’s quite challenging for me…But I got it:)
Kind of fascinating that this vid’s title is British English and there’s no British people commenting.
9/10 but I believe there is a pb with the last question. You said in your video that even when the “t” in “can’t” is not pronunced, the proposition is always clear because because the “a” sound stay a long one, and can’t be confused with the short “a” you would have with an affirmative sentence.
As for the “th”, you often say it as an “f” at the beginning of the word and also as a “v” at the end of it. You always say “wiv” instead of “with”. Another teacher said it was a cockney accent ? is this true or is it more generally found in London and in the South ?
Thanks in advance for any answer Jade and appreciate your lessons very much.
My name is Esheri and I’d like to tell you that if you can give a specific lesson about the British accents and the differences between the south and the north.
HI, you got me!, only 50% by quiz… I will be back on lesson!
thanks u !!!
I learn a lot with yours pronunciation classes. Thank you Jade!
Thank you, Jade for this lesson. I’ve already said
that I love your accent. Listening to you,carefully,
is an extra lesson on pronunciation.
Thanks a lot.
I don’t agree with it:
is often the same
The pronunciation of “can” and “can’t”:
is often the same
is always different
is always wrong
is always clear
because the explanation was, that we get not confused.
can’t -ka’nt and can- caen, so it always different
are you from china？your horrible pronunciation always makes me crazy.
Thank you Jade
Thank you Jade! I am sorry, but you are so beautiful that it’s very hard to concentrate about you talk in the lesson ..but I tried don’t digress…)) English above all.. Thank you again for lesson!
Thank you Jade.
It is useful for me studying English.
thank you for the presentation
because I’m Arabic, i draw your attention that the sound (th ث) of think exists and (th ذ) of this also exists.
I add that the sound (r ر) depends. there’re the weak and the strong pronunciation.
It’s really good. thank you so much for this lesson.
Hello madam!I am a new student in your lesson. I am really confused about the ed ending word.my first question is (During exam time,what things do we required? Vs During exam time,what things do we require?)which is correct? Another question is(required things/require things)which is correct?
Thanks a million your teaching was insightful can’t wait for more lessons.
Nice lesson, thank you very much.
However, are you sure the correct answer to the last question is that the pronunciation of “can” and “can’t” is often the same?
In the video you pointed out that we don’t need to be confused about “can” and “can’t” because the vowel sounds in these words are completely different.
