Sunday, March 6th 2011

my score was 8 of 10…….

Sunday, March 6th 2011

It is a very useful lesson but at the same time it is very difficult for many people like me, because when you speak with a native English speaker it is so hard to hear the difference sounds between these words and others as well. Thank you very much

Sunday, March 6th 2011

10 out of 10… By the way, there’s a misspelled word in one of the sentences. Think it was “We owns” instead of “We own.”

Sunday, March 6th 2011

    I think it’s “We own” instead of “We owns”.

    Monday, March 14th 2011

    We use “s” at the end when it’s SHE, HE, or IT. With WE, THEY, YOU, and I, there is no added “s” at the end.

    Sunday, March 20th 2011

    this has no such word as “owns” instead own.

    Saturday, April 16th 2011

Thank you Alex

Tuesday, March 8th 2011

Hello Alex!
I hope, now I can improve my pronunciation of these two sounds. Thanks for the lesson.

I also have another question…
One of the meanings of “get” is “become or start to be”.
I feel confused about the expressions:
get plus adjective (for ex. get dark).
On the other hand we say “become older”
Can we also say “become dark” and “get older”?
I guess, there’s no rule, but maybe there’re some tipps, when we should use “get” and when “become”?!

Could you clear it up?
Thanks you in advance.

Thursday, March 10th 2011

Is it correct? We owns a pair of pink PANTS. We own but not owns, right?


He’s a generous MAN.

* A
* E
man is a singular so it should be A and plural should be MEN = E

Saturday, March 19th 2011

my score is 8 of 10

Sunday, March 20th 2011

Seems like right answers are already in the words.))) That`s why it wasn`t really a good qiuz. I mean, when you look at the words in the sentences (written with capital letters) the vowels in the middle are the right answer. So you just choose it! )))) Am I right?

Wednesday, March 23rd 2011

That1s why it was easy to score 10 of 10.)))

Thanks it is very useful. This is similar to a the science of “Tajweed” which is a set of rules which dictate how the Qur’an, the Holy Book of Islam, should be read.It is very interesting to compare between the principles of English pronunciation and the principles of “Tajweed”. You will find a lot of similarities. Thanks

Hi Alex. Would you please make a lesson to explain the sound difference between fool/full pool/pull food/good ?
In IPA they are different but I’d like to confirm with you. Thanks.

Monday, October 8th 2012

Hi everybody !!
I kindda found a trick to pronounce man/men bad/bed land/lend differently so I would like to share with you and if possible receive Alex’s opinion.
It’s about pronouncing the “A” in “man” as if it was to letters. E and A. So we would pronounce meh-an beh-ad leh-and in a very brief way.
I hope it’s correct and that you find it useful.

Monday, October 8th 2012

10 out of 10. I think that I’ve understood the point.
When the letter “A” has the sound of “e” (like in bad) it sounds “ae”. (open)
When the letter “E” has the sound of “e” (like bed) it sounds “eh”. (close)
