Jade, you’re just a bombshell. I appreciate you so much! You’re a really nice girl, a really nice person and a wonderful teacher at the same time. I hope you’ll keep going with your “Sound like a native speaker” video lessons, because it’s the last barrier for foreign English learners. Thanks in advance. Good luck!)))

Friday, February 21st 2014

    You’re absolutely right. mostly the foreign countries don’t teach their students how to read English-phonics and pronunciations-but they make them memorize word by word. And they teach us Queen English, So we appreciate Ms. Jade for teaching us these subjects.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

      Of course you guys are right,thank you Ms/our teacher.

      Thursday, November 27th 2014

    Yes I have quite a few native speaker videos coming. Also on my JJ Communication Skills YouTube channel.

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

      It is said that theory and practice go hand in hand;but when it comes to pronunciation it is the putting into practice what really makes the difference.

      Very simple and useful tips to put elision into practice right away.

      Thanks for this hands-on pronunciation lesson Jade.
      Have a great weekend.

      Thursday, April 17th 2014

      Dear Jade,

      No one can deny that there is a natural tendency to pronounce English sounds using our mother tongue’s phonetic system.

      That is why it is diffucult -I believe- to sound like a native English speaker.

      Quoting a pronunciation teacher “Pronunciation is like underwear, it is the last piece of clothe that you take off”.

      I would add to this quoting “… but in the end you may not take it off”.


      Thursday, April 17th 2014

      Dear Madam, I like you videos very much.
      Kindly tell me how to improve English writing and pronunciation skills.

      Saturday, May 24th 2014

    One word awesome!

    Tuesday, March 4th 2014

Thanks for teaching this lesson in professional way . We appreciate that . Thanks again .

Friday, February 21st 2014

Please, make a lesson about ng or [ŋ] sound in comparison with a normal n sound. It’s quite simple to pronounce in words with -ing endings, but when we have words like ‘thin’ and ‘thing’, the difference is marginal and more difficult to get. :)

Friday, February 21st 2014

    the way to pronounce /n/ and /ŋ/ almost same. But, they have a small difference.

    In /n/ sound, your tongue goes to the roof of the mouth. but in /ŋ/ sound, it doesn’t.

    Thin /θɪɴ/ , your tongue is ready to pronounce /θ/ sound between your teeth, then release it to make a /ɪ/ sound. And go back to the roof of your mouth to make a sound /ɴ/.

    Thing /θɪŋ/ , same step to pronounce /θ/ and /ɪ/. To make a sound /ŋ/, don’t move your tongue. just stay on that position when you pronounce /ɪ/, then stop the air coming to your mouth, let the air go to your nose.

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

      Wow, great explanation. Thanks.

      Thursday, July 3rd 2014

      thank you bro

      Thursday, November 27th 2014

      very nice,thanks very much

      Thursday, November 27th 2014

    Ah I like this idea. Let me put my thinking cap on and see what I come up with/1

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

      I didn’t find the meaning of “cap on” teacher.

      Monday, August 4th 2014

        ‘put your thinking cap on’ – to start to think seriously about how to solve a problem or do sth

        Monday, September 8th 2014

          Thanks a lot Ernest.You tought me a word , i will respect you forever .

          Friday, September 19th 2014


          Jade is the most Salutator teacher I’ve ever seen .well done Jade !

          Friday, September 19th 2014

          Oh my god i meant Scrutator .I have ti take a rest.I am not functional right now…

          Friday, September 19th 2014

      Nothing come up whit. Nothing popped into your mind. Your empty mind.
      Am i wrong? ( aint, innnit, etc.) Why don’t you try to wear a burka?
      It’s worth it. And for your anxiety, get a laid, please.

      Sunday, May 10th 2015

Jade I think that you should start speaking loud and clear. In the end of the day we need to understand your talking to understand the lesson. Without bad feeling sincerely yours roshavbg.

Friday, February 21st 2014

    I think it’s usefull to listen fast and, maybe, a little unclear native speech, so you can learn how to understand people who won’t actually teach you English and how to avoid unpleasants situations when you needed to ask to slow down. :)

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

    You could always try turning up the volume!

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

      It was only a suggestion not confrontation.

      Saturday, February 22nd 2014

    If it’s that hard for you, you can use subtitles and read what she is saying. I think she has a lovely british accent.

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

    it’s really rude :(

    Thursday, February 27th 2014

Thanks Jade

Friday, February 21st 2014

Jade, my first EngVid video and I marked directly the web as “favorite”. I,m going to follow all your pronunciation videos. Genial!!! Thank yoy!!

Friday, February 21st 2014

nice to have you back and i hope to see more videos about vocabulary and confiusing words

Friday, February 21st 2014

Thank you very much.

Friday, February 21st 2014

Thank you so much for this video teacher, we must learn how native speakers talk because it will help us improving our listening and we won’t have problems when we watch movies!!

Friday, February 21st 2014

    Learning how to understand native speakers is hard but very rewarding in the end once you manage it!

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

      Dear Jade,
      A kind Hi,,
      Let me know pls : Is there any difference btw Somebody n Someone ??????!!!!

      Tnx in advance,

It helps me to improve my speaking english.

Friday, February 21st 2014

Can I use this advice to speak American English?

Friday, February 21st 2014

Thanx Jade, U r amazing I not only like yr character but also the way of yr teaching…..

Friday, February 21st 2014

very nice!

Friday, February 21st 2014

Dear teacher Jade,

As a learner in English, I strongly believe that this video clip is so useful to me. In general, we pronounce English words with our local identity; so I think it is a natural issue, but I try my best to understand different accents followed by native English speakers living in different parts in the world. In my practical setting, I random find native English speakers, hence I hardly get an opportunity to practice English in its original beat, however, I try my best to watch English programs on internet conducted by native English speakers to get this gap filled. Good Luck!

Friday, February 21st 2014

    Sounds like you are trying your best. I’m sure you will succeed in your goals.

    Monday, March 17th 2014

thank you very much yoare gorgous

Friday, February 21st 2014


Friday, February 21st 2014

Thanks nice teacher Jade, I got 88%.

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Jade speaks and looks strange. :|

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

    She speaks not as strange as you think, just like a usual Londoner. Londoners have quite a few accents including a world-famous cockney, and Jade’s accent is not a worst one from them.

    As for how she looks, I see nothing wrong with that. Just a young shy girl who does all the best for helping us to improve our language skills.

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

      Jade is not ‘shy girl’. She is just an introvert…

      Saturday, February 22nd 2014

        Of course.

        and at the end of the day, we all love you Jade.

        It is a productive video-lesson isn’t it!

        Have a good one!

        Sunday, February 23rd 2014

Many thanks to you Jade.but ,dont forget your teaching Non- native English mean Your Kind of fast I hope to see more videos abuout IELTS exam . Thats scary test .thanks alot .

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Thank for lesson today

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Thank you for making this lesson.

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Hi Jade, thanks for this lesson. However I have looked into the Oxford Dictionary, it says for example:

memorable: ˈmemərəbl
family: ˈfæməli
and so forth

I am a bit confuse now. :)

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

    What the dictionary says and how people talk are not always the same thing.

    Monday, March 17th 2014

    Indeed if you look up familiy in the OD you get /ˈfamɪli, -m(ə)l-/, which is the same pronunciation given by teacher Jade. The schwa between parenthesis is an elided schwa.

    The same with memorable /ˈmɛm(ə)rəb(ə)l/. There you have two elided schwas.

    Saturday, April 12th 2014

Thank you :)

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Jade , are there rules for elision in english ?


Saturday, February 22nd 2014

    Hi, Amer 2. Awaiting for Jade’s response, please get mine. I guess there is only one rule about elision in English. The rule is: “Elision rules”! Cheers.

    Saturday, February 22nd 2014

      Thanks Hiubhp for your advice but I hope to see the respone from her too dont forget she is our teacher

      Monday, February 24th 2014

        In the video I mention 2 rules but personally I find these rules hard to apply in natural, flowing speech.

        Monday, March 17th 2014

Thank you Jade. I’m an ESL teacher and I liked your style in teaching. I’m learning a lot from you.TK U so muuuuuuuuuuuuch

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Hello Prof. Jade
Thank you very much. I wish I could speak English like you because UK accent is my favorite :)

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

i love it very much :)) thank u teacher Jade :))

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Thank you for the lesson! But I have a query.In your examples “laboratory” and ” secretary” the elision of schwa follows a “t” not a “m” or “r”

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

hey jade i hope u fineee! thx for this lesson productive lesson . if you mind i have a question which is what’s the different among the american accent and british accent and accadimic accent ? have a nice time

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

ohh sorry jade i forget to tell you that i can understand your accent without repeating the video :D so what u think about my listening ?

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

hey everbody i suggest to you to watch this funny video about American accent and british accent have fun

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Is this sentence grammatically correct=
lost my wife (misty),
she went for shopping
& still not reached home yet.

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

This video will probably have confused many of people who get used to North American accent and pronunciation. So be careful, when you decide to change your pronunciation thinking you don’t speak properly.

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Thanks for your interesting videos.Could you please deliver a lesson about clear and dark L ?
I appreciate your effort.

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

I appreciate all kinds of lessons because the “main goal” is learn English and that’s exactly what I’m doing in (engVid)10Q Jade!!!

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

I do not speak English and I want to learn.

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Hello Jade !
What a pleasure to have at last a british teacher on engVid ! I like your accent which is so different from the american one !
I’m living in London for 1 month and I would love to meet you in person if it doesn’t bother you. I would like you to give me some advice about learning english or about things to do in London, job interviews or whatever. Let me know please !
See you soon !

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

Hello Jade. a handy lesson as usual thanks a lot. One question, I’m wondering about your accent, is it Cockney ?

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

    My accent is called ‘Estuary English’. If you search for this on my personal Jade Joddle channel you will see videos about it.

    Monday, March 17th 2014

      is Estuary English spoken a lot in London?

      well, to be honest, i still don’t have too much idea about the concept of “London accent”, though apparently you’ve heard it frequently.

      as far as i know, there are RP, cockney, estuary, northern english and southwest etc, but i never have knowledge on what specifically is “London accent” #_#

      Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

How cool and great! I hope to pronounce naturally and fluently like native speaking people. I wanna coffee :P
Thank you so much, Jade! I’d like to improve my speaking more smoothly.

Saturday, February 22nd 2014

finally i found british teacher. i hope your accent will help me when i watch football. great job AJ Jade

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

Thanks for the lesson.

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

oh, i really saw the light in this lesson though i missed two questions hehe. never mind. however, that’s why i couldn’t hear the native speaker until now. i though the words they speak were the words i heard first time even “camera” haha, “camra”? what is it? i never knew.

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

    Yes it’s a small thing but now you know. Good luck!

    Monday, March 17th 2014

. . . I’m back again after a short break . . .

Sharing is what makes the language learning experience more exciting.


Sunday, February 23rd 2014

“Wanna” and “Gonna” are used very often in speech. And, of course, they have the same structure of formation such as “hafta, outta”, сoulda, shoulda” etc. And, for example, these words are: donna (don’t know), prolly (probably), gotcha (got you) and so on. English is really very rich language of interpretation all words.

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

thanks a lot

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

Thanks for the lesson, Jade! And I got 10! :)

So i hope you will find some time for this. Im looking forward for your new videos. Cheers

Thursday, March 27th 2014

Friday, March 28th 2014

This is the first time I’ve found all the tips about grammatical varieties between British and American English in one place at once. It was pretty confusing not knowing these rules. Especially when listening or chatting. It’s easier now. Thanks Jade.

Saturday, March 29th 2014

    Sorry, I had several of your videos ready to watch in my browser and this comment relates to the lesson ‘American&British English,8 grammar differences’.

    Thumbs up for this lesson to!

    Sunday, March 30th 2014

Monday, March 31st 2014

Thank you Jade. I am living in the UK for more than a year and I am working in schools as a TA and I have Master awarded by English university. I am still struggling with my pronunciation and is not easy to understand me other people and understand them. I bought a Tv recently, but I need something more effective.What you recommend? Thank you.Irene

Saturday, April 5th 2014

thank you so much you!please, could you make more advanced lessons <3

Tuesday, April 15th 2014

    Gee!!! You must be an advanced English student.

    I strongly recommend you to see a lesson developed by Adam -an EngVid teacher- on “Causative verbs”.

    Please, do the quiz, it may a be a bit of a challenge for you, I bet.

    See you around!!!

    Thursday, April 17th 2014

Dear Teacher Jade. Still Iam searching the
Questions but I didn’t find it yet.
So where I can find it?

Tuesday, April 22nd 2014

I appreciate your time to teach us how to improve and motivate by ourselves. I had some doubts to learn English online but after found this site and then heard about your channel I have no more doubts to follow this path.

See you around and I love the way you say goodbye!

Wednesday, April 23rd 2014

Hi Jade.. why is it so important for a politician to learn a perfect English, you mentioned that in one of your videos. Learning English is a must for sure for all sorts of jobs, but why is it a bit more important for a politician specifically.

Wednesday, April 23rd 2014

Thank you, Jade!

Thursday, May 8th 2014

Thank you,Jade this lesson really helps me to improve my pronunciation in English, before this I don’t really know how to talk English like native speaker, but now I know and it all because of you. Thank you again and keep up the good work.

Thursday, June 5th 2014

thank you miss Jade

Tuesday, June 17th 2014

thanks jade do you have more of pronunciation videos please ?

Saturday, July 12th 2014

Hi Jade, that’s a really great and helpful video. i am quite interested in some features in British English like elision, schwa, non-rhoticity, disappearing of /t/&/d/ sound, etc.

regarding the topic of the video, elision of schwa, i just wanna additionally ask you about the sound of “pro” before a stressed syllable, as in “professor”, “professor”. because i constantly perceive that (first) /r/ sound in /prə ˈfes.ər/ or /prəˌnʌ ˈeɪ.ʃən/ is barely pronounced, which consequently become /pə ˈfes.ər/ and /pəˌnʌ ˈeɪ.ʃən/. but i really not quite sure if it is the case. perhaps it’s just me over-sensed it.

i am looking forward to your opinion about it. that’d be very appreciated! :)

Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

Result 75 %, so so . Thanks.

Sunday, August 3rd 2014

Love your teaching .I have never had an astute teacher like U. You spotlight the dark sides thanks dear Jade…

Monday, December 29th 2014

We’ve got a lot of examples of elision in all the languages. French, Italian, German, etc. We say /Madrí/ /soledá/ etc. And we’ve got our “posh” accent. A German speaker can say if you are from Berlin, Bonn and your level of education. The same in French. Italian is the most funny chaos.
But “elision” and all the other things were invented for British people, of course. Let them think that “Brittannia” rules. Bendita ignorancia.

Wednesday, December 31st 2014

Very Helpful lessons, actually I was studying English in school and college, and all what they were teaching is vocabularies , grammar, which is important, finally it will be a waste without vocal and speaking lessons like this.

Thursday, January 15th 2015

thank you Jade, great lesson, great tool to help my students understand why some words are so difficult for them so pronounce! I appreciate your help! Blessings

Monday, January 19th 2015

Jade, you are a great teacher. Thanks a lot.

Tuesday, January 27th 2015

Hello, i’m am glad to watch your videos, in fact I really love the way you teach.
I have a little question…..why the elision is different with: secret-ry…laborat-ry….and mem-rable…If is the same amount of sylablles.

Thanks for your answer.

Sunday, February 1st 2015

Hello I’m trying to learn American English although some pronounciations are difficult in American English and now it’s kind of difficult to understand English.I like to learn both but I understand American better.

Thursday, February 26th 2015

I mean it’s kind of difficult to understand British English.
And also some pronounciations are hard in american and some of them in British.

Thursday, February 26th 2015

Hi, Jade !
I have a question to you.
Why do you spoke elide like [i’li:d] ?
I believe that it sounds [ɪˈlaɪd].
Can you get rid me of uncertainty ?

And, also I want to say you’re awesome ! I adore your lessons, dear Jade. :D

I don’t know whether you did it intentionally or not,but in phonemic transcription we don’t write /wanna/ or /tea/. So let’s be more consistent.

Hello Mrs.Jade your lessons are very very helpful and interesting too. You are just shaping what I want to be in the future as an introvert english teacher. well I want to ask you in the first role you said schwa after first stress get delete but in the word memory you didn’t delete the “e” in (‘m”e”m.ri) although it is after a stress and in laboratory thier two stress as I see. and in laboratory you didn’t delete the “o” after the b stress too la’b”o”or.ra.tri. I mean I don’t understand why you didn’t use the first role in the second role too and thanks :)

Firstly, thank you for precious lessons. I have been working hard to master British accent, your immaculate accent is helping me understand at a better level how words are pronounced in vernacular conversations which I believe dictionary will never provide.

From this lesson I understand only 2 words: “David Cameron”. What is “elision”? What means “schwa”? And how to understand “Elision of Schwa”?

You are so great Jade! Your accent is perfect to study. I didn´t understand very well at first lesson, but now is so much better. :)

Thanks, Jade!
I suppose singers sometimes pronounce words in a way that goes well with melodies. For example the band Yes has a song that says ” I am a camera, camera camera ” in which every syllable is clearly heard.
Actually that’s how I learned that word!

Hello Jade,
In this video, why do “laboratory” and “secretary” not follow the “m” and “r” rule of the elision of the SCHWA?
Thank you
