back vowels. You’ll learn by seeing what my mouth, lips, and tongue are doing when I pronounce these vowel sounds, then you’ll practice saying them by doing the same with your mouth. Often, English learners don’t notice the difference between these sounds, and that might be why you aren’t saying them correctly. We’ll compare these similar vowel sounds to make those differences clear. I will show you the different spellings of these sounds in English and you will learn what the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols for these vowels are. You should also watch my other video on front vowel sounds. Those are just as important!
I’ve got ace up in my sleeve.
Congratulation. You’re the first one.
The early bird gets the…..
You can put anything that you like in this blank space. I remember one of your comment that you mentioned you don’t like worm or chicken any more. So, you can decide a prise for yourself.
Sorry: one of your commentS.( I didn’t put S)
I would rather have a pizza right now. Crispy cheesy big round pizza. And several candies. And a big plate of soup. Humpty-Dumpty sat on the wall, hampty-Dumpty had a great fall……
Thank you for letting me to choose.
Help yourself with some delicious piece….
Thanks, ofcourse in dreams….
un4unately i have had a hulking problem with my internet connection

What does your top comment mean, Zahra?
Most of the first and second comments are not about the lessons, it seems they leave notes then they watch the videos :D
Yes, sometimes we comment first, especially if we want to be the first to comment. It’s a competition. But we watch videos afterwards of course.
We greatful to EngVid for the opportunity to chat, not on the topic.
This time I personally have nothing to say about the lesson. It’s useful, no doubt.
Thanks, Emma, very much.
Competition for what?????
For the first comment to the lesson. You can join us as well. It’s entertaining and encouraging. You can look through comments on the previous lessons and find out a score. Good luck
I’ll never do such a thing :)
Of course, it’s up to you. As you are a teacher, you might not be interested in such a dial. But I think it’s interesting for those who’s shy and needs to improve his writing skills. I’ll tell about my experience: I had been whatching EngVid lessons for a year( from time to time). After starting this “competition”, I really wait for every single lesson, never miss them. It encourages me a lot.
We try to comment on the topic, but fail sometimes.
Nice to meet you.
As u like
We don’t force anyone
“We” I think all of you are one person
look at your dictions all of them are the same
Good morning Mrs Zahra! I don’t understand your last comment at all, sorry.
Don’t take offense at us for writing out of the topic. I apologize to EngVid for that as well.
Have a nice day.
We would prefer everyone’s comments be on topic, yes!
I think I am the second on board, very grateful of this…
I have to practice more time to understand this lesson because I have many doubts.
Time must take its course!
The early bird does not always catch the worm! Everything at its appointed time! Everything happens in its own time! A watched pot never boils! To everything, there is a season! Don’t push the river; it flows by itself! Never try to teach a pig to sing because you waste your time and it annoys the pig! There are different sentences with the same meaning…
On EngVid, they do catch!
But what one should do with an annoyed pig?
Yes, they do catch so many concepts, not only proverbs but also the time position of these posts or comments, because when I began to write my first words I thought I was the second on writing them at this morning. And furthermore, with an annoyed pig, you have to be warned because it bites if you are distracted or without attention.
I have realised that there is a resource with some proverbs like ones of my comment:
Hi, angardiobel! Thank you for the resource.
You are the second indeed. But when one replies to the comment it is placed next to it (comment). That’s why your second comment to the lesson moves downward. How is the weather in Spain right now? I were in Barselona twice, and I liked it very much (except Sagrada Familia – it looks like the Koschei the Deathless’ castle. He is the Russian evil folk character. Does anybody know this character?)
Yes, of course, I haven’t realised or noted it, you’re right, I ought to review my vision of all these comments or posts; and with regard to the weather in Spain right now, it’s cloudy and rainy but with warm temperatures, we’re near the spring and when it’s sunny we can arrive at 22 degrees, it will be warm and hot nearly. I didn’t know the Marya Morevna’s tale but I have searched it and I have found that interesting page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Death_of_Koschei_the_Deathless, although I think The Temple of the Sacred Family is a great building similar to a castle but without pits and walls with battlements, it’s a reference monument in Barcelona where is buried Antonio Gaudí i Hornet, the famous architect who began his construction. Anyway, the art is always very criticised, there are opinions of all classes.
Yes! There are some English-language retellings of/references to Koshchei stories.
It’s funny a O U.
With face expressions if you talk slowly.
Amma! Your Lipsing with this sounds awesome
Thanks Emma, this lesson was great…
Thanks Emma,you realy great teacher.
Hello Emma: I dont understand the reason of difernt pronunciation between Boot and Book. Why ? How can I know ?
Hello sdwender! You can find out the pronunciation in IPA. It contains symbols to make reading easier. There are so many reading rules in English, so follow IPA.
It’s great you are here on EngVid. You are so curious, I suppose!
There are a lot of things absent on the site: you year of birth and Russia as country when one wants to donate, for example. It’s a pity…
Emma great lesson!!!!, You are my favorite teacher!!!, may be I in love with you, (just kidding)
Thank you so much,This lesson was great lesson.It’s interesting lesson.
