      Interesting pronunciation video-lesson Adam. However, never had I taken a pronunciation quiz like this before.

      In order to do well on the quiz, you’ve got to be familiar enough with the pronunciation of a number of unfamiliar words.

      Challenging quiz, but at the same time very illustrative of English pronunciation.

      Superb lesson Adam! Regards

      Regino

    hikmat1987

Hello Adam .
Thank you for this lesson . I tried the quiz without seing thé lesson and I must confess due to my un-fantastic score that I would have had to look at it .
See you

tsamp

    I have watched the video and had gotten 40/100.
    It’s not FANTASTIC.

    zimil

      Hi Zimil
      Pronounciation is not easy in english . You have to work this lesson out again and again . Good luck !

      tsamp

Since I became very excited I couldn’t watch the video and I got 8 !

Soei

7…err

Mirth Morales

It was awesome Adam. And it was so funny while you were saying the correct way of pronunciation of words that end with (ough).😁 Thank you teacher and nice teaching.

nkh

    Or as you were saying…

    nkh

Thanks Adam.
I have difficult to catch the difference between words pronounced with “UFF” and “Af”.

Have a nice week.

byte

    The same problem i have.

    struggleForEng

Thank you very much Adam!!I had been waiting for a lesson like this for some time ago. But the problems come at the time of reading out loud or at the time of writing them.
As you said, every word is pronounced differently and there´re no rules to follow, which makes very difficult for Spanish people to learn these kind of words.
I think I should watch the video a couple of times again!
Thanks again ;)

knopfler86

Hi Adam, thank you for this lesson. It’s really difficult, I should watch this video several times to remember how pronounce these words.

Jorge

Hi Adam! Nice video, pronouciation in English is a bit complicated sometimes, so thanks for teaching us about it.

Aleachi

good lesson plenty of vocabulary , i suggest a lesson concern ‘suffix’ wich change the meaning of the words like ‘soulful’ ‘soulless’ and so one.

SKIKDA

    Good point. I’ll get on that ;)

    Adam

3/10.. No satisfactory.. I need to watch this lesson again.. these was difficult for me. Thanks Adam!

It’s not easy, but I’m supremely intelligent.Hahaha.

Thank you, Adam! Good lesson

Vitalii UA

Hi Adam ! Though I think that your lessons are the Best of the site, but I’m sorry, but in my opinion this one of the worst of your lessons.(

Vladkabatkovich

    Fair enough. I’ll try not to disappoint in future ;)

    Adam

      I’m really sorry becouse of my disappointing coment Adam, but anyway Thank you very much, I Wich you the Best in your work.
      Best wiches your student, Vladislav Gubaidullin.

      Vladkabatkovich

        Thank you Vladislav :)

        Adam

    I disagree with you Vladkabatkovich. The subject of this lesson is not so easy. I have always met difficulties in pronunciating these words. We must memorize them. Unfortunately, there isn’t another way to learn them.

    Excellent

      I agree with Excellent.

      Maxwell

The answer of question 8 is bow(as in bow and arrow).
engVid’s answer, bow(as in bend at waist) is incorrect. Any choises of question 9 is not correct.

massivejohn50

    Actually, Massivejohn, they’re both correct.

    Adam

What a pity you didn’t read aloud that famous tongue twister, Adam :
English can be weird, it can be understood through tough thorough thought, though.

Can you do that at the beginning of next lesson, please? No matter what the next topic will be?

everden

    lol. It might not fit with next lesson, but I’ll see what I can do.

    Adam

WOW,Nice lesson, thank you

bashir-91

bough sounds different because like you said they sound 8 different. right ?
and why cough not come in uff sounds like same spell like tough ?

mrinalsingh

    That’s the craziness of English ;)

    Adam

Hallo Adam, in the test, there is the qoestion Nr.8 with the Word bough. In your lessen isn´t this word.

adrijana

    I must have forgotten it, Adrijana, but then again, you can always check the dictionary for the pronunciation of a new word.

    Adam

It’s a very important lesson, I ought to practice these words to memorize them. Thank you, Adam.

Mamadou14

Good job! Thank you so much.

mynassar

Another great lesson.hats off to you teacher.Its your 98th video teacher and you are going to make your 100 videos soon.Wow thats great teacher,aren’t you going to celebrate your 100th video with all your students around the world,Of course you should since it was such a long journey and required alot of strength,courage and determination.And you did it successfully,thats really great thumbs up to a great teacher like you.We’ve really learnt alot from all of your precious videos and looking forword to more good videos from you and also expect a grand celebration.I personally request engvid management to do this for you as a reward for all your hardwork and to decorate the entire room even the board you write on with colourful buntings and you should also not dressed casualy in that video.Don’t you think it will add some colour to the entire leaning process and will make the students more interested and happy.Even the topic of your 100th video could be “events and celebrations” in wich you can teach us about the most popular events that are celebrated all over the world and that everybody should know about like halloween day,thanksgiving day and many other days and events like these.Thanks.Let me be the first to congratulate you on your 100th video in advance.Congratulations teacher

eichi

    Wow, what a cool suggestion!!! It can be a different and new happening in engvid. Engvid Moderator, please do this for all of our great teachers. Dear buddies, what’s your opinion???

    nkh

      Tashakkur humsheera:)

      eichi

    Yes! I join to this as well!!! Great idea. I’ll be looking forward for the anniversary!
    But you know, maybe I’m impolite and little mannerless, but I’m so interested in personalities of EngVid teachers, that I’d rather know some details about their lives. For example, how they celebrate their birthdays and other important events. What is important for Canadian families. What kind of books are read in your family. And pets!!!! Do you like them? Excuse me if I hurt your feelings with my request in advance.

    nataanna

      hi nataanna,I really appreciate your liking for the teachers but knowing about their personal lifes would be rather too personal.I don’t know what teacher would think or say but I personally think we being students should not peep into their personal lifes,And this will also distract us from our basic purpose of learning.Well this is my thought may be teacher doesn’t think this way so don’t mind my words.I admit all the students whether they are young or old they like and admire their best teachers to the extent that they become their idols and they start worshipping them,so do you,rather all the students at this forum do.No doubt our teacher really worth this love and respect.He is the best of all.

      eichi

        Hi Eichi! You are right, of course. My request was non-applicable. See you!

        nataanna

          Hi nataanna,I didn’t mean it.Don’t come to a conclusion so quickly,Lets wait for the teacher,Let him decide whether your request could be considered or not may be my thought is wrong and he agrees to your idea.well I have got an idea for those who wants to know about there teachers,lets have a vote on the forum,If more than 50% students vote for the idea then we all will make a request to the engvid moderator to arrange interviews of all teachers at engvid one by one starting from our great teacher Adam.In this way on one hand students will learn how to make an interview,and what are the basic questions asked in a general interview while on the other hand students like you and others will know about your favourite teachers.How is it???still don’t know what teacher will say.

          eichi

          Another bright idea!
          Eichi, have you noticed, we compete for being the first one to comment new videos. Join us. It may seem silly for the first sight, but it’s so challenging and funny!
          I’ll float your ideas into forum the next lesson. See you

          nataanna

          Thank you dear, nataanna.

          eichi

      Hi! I also want to know,how they live and other important events,because I’m interesting.

      Nastasyaaa

        Hello, Nastasyaaa!
        Note my correction: I am interestED (past participle).
        But it is an interstING (adjective) book.

        nataanna

          Ok! Thanks

          Nastasyaaa

    Great comment, Eichi. I appreciate it.

    They tried it with other teachers but n-one noticed lol. Your comment is celebration enough.:)

    Adam

      So what teacher,we don’t have anything to do with the other teachers.We want a great celebration for our teacher and you know there is a big difference between you and other teachers.You will definitely see a big difference in students response,I’m sure.I must ask all my friends at forum and we will all celebrate the event with you.Please engvid moderator do something.

      eichi

      so what teacher why not for you???we don’t have anything to do with the other teachers.We just want a great celebration for our teacher.And you know their is a big difference between you and the other teachers.You will definitely see a big difference in students response,I’m sure.I must ask all my friends at the forum and we will all celebrate the event with you.Please engvid moderator do something,you won’t disappoint all the students.

      eichi

Anybody please tell me was it with me or anybody else also noticed that the video was a little blur.I could not properly see what was written on the board.

eichi

    I have usually this problem too.

    nkh

      No it doesn’t happen with me, I guess it is issue of setting, try to modify the quality of video, so click on Setting, then Quality, you will find diffrent qualities (from 144p to 1080p), choose 480, it is quite clear and visible.
      I hope this helped you.

      struggleForEng

        oh! thank you so much,It really worked.

        eichi

          You are welcome :)

          struggleForEng

    it’s goog for me.

    SKIKDA

It was an interesting lesson but difficult at the same time because you have to be immersed in the sound of the language all days to find out how a word is pronounced. You have to practise all time the English to identify these sounds and words, it was difficult for a latin speaker, anyway, thanks a lot, teacher Adam for your explanation.

angardiobel

    You’re right, Angardiobel. It takes time, practice, and patience.

    Adam

I came back to engvid. I need to speak english and i works in a American company.

Edson Gomes Rita

    Welcome back, Edson :)

    Adam

i will try keep me be more concentrate

HindSaper

Very difficult for a French people, I suppose. If I learn back this lesson one day, I’ll have really improve my English.
Thanks Adam.

beernaard

I don’t think the lesson is for beginners. When all these words are gathered together it’s difficult studying them at once (if they aren’t familiar to you). One should better memorize them one by one in context. But it’s great to make a system for higher level students or compare and revise them.
Though I had known the word draught, and moreover I’m an engineer and a constructor designer and draw every day, I made a mistake! So, I do need this lesson very much. Thank you.

nataanna

very interesting video, the pronounce in english generaly is very difficult. Thanks Adam

Ramon592

Thanks for this lesson Adam! I need to practice more pronunciation and it was very useful to understand some of the english language variations.

SKIKDA

    Hi Skikda,

    Check out the word in the dictionary and you can hear it spoken out loud.

    Adam

Excellent class! Very helpfull!

Guimarecife

Thk u for ur lesson

Srihari bevera

Thanks for lesson , Adam. Another good one. Forever EngVid!!! :)
And always English makes me ask questions.
Please explain. These words such as “regardless”, “despite” and in “spite of” are different? When should I use each of them?

AlexanderR134

    Hi Alexander,

    In spite of and despite mean the same thing and both are prepositions. Just make sure not to mix them (no: despite of; in despite)

    regardless is used as a linking word to lead to a new idea. (it’s an adverb)

    In terms of meaning they are similar. the main difference is their place in the construction of a sentence

    Does this help?

    Adam

      I think it really does! Thank you very much.

      AlexanderR134

although I understand almost everything what you or your colleagues say in your videos, I am still not capable to understand what cinema actors are saying when they talk.
is that normal ?? and will that be solved with the time.

saidtiget

    Absolutely, Saidtiget.

    We slow down a little to help you. Also, we use simpler language. Actors in a movie use slang, and cultural references and they speak fast. You will get it with time.

    Adam

      thank you very much,I wish you all the best in your personal and professional life.

      saidtiget

You’re the best Adam. Fantastic explanation!. You understand exactly what foreigners are thinking. You made it easier for us. Thank you always. I wish you all the best! Marco

Marco Marx

Thanks, Adam.
I saw “throwback” this word in many posts.
I would like to know “throwback from five years ago” or “throwback to five years ago” which one is correct?
Under what situations should I use to and from?

Sophie

    Sorry, get one more question.
    “continue on the subject of…” or “continue the subject of…” which one is correct? Besides, is there any other way to say and have the same meaning?
    Thanks in advance. :)

    Sophie

      Hi Sophie,

      A throwback is a reminder of a moment in the past.(throwback to). It’s common with pics (like on Instagram) when you wore crazy clothes, or had weird hair, etc.)

      Continue on the subject (means continue the discussion on…). Another way, going further…, or to get back to (the subject)…

      Adam

thorough
[‘θɜ͟ːroʊ] is AE, while BE is [‘θʌ̱rə], the latter being provided by most common dictionaries.
Besides, don’t forget ‘-ly’ can be added there to build the corresponding adverb, and the unstressed diphthong certainly turns into a schwa then.

SergeGo

    Hi Serge,

    Pronunciation is your choice. There is no one right way with such a universal language.

    Adam

      Well, that’s a bit too general statement, I suppose. ))

      SergeGo

        :) What I meant to say is that you have to choose the dialect you want to follow and go with a corresponding dictionary. If you look at many words in an American or British dictionary, you’ll see different phonetic spellings. You have to go with the one you think you’ll use.

        Adam

          You really don’t have to explain that to me as I’m a professional linguist with many years of experience in languages. So please, believe me, I am perfectly aware of what you’re talking about. :)

          SergeGo

Thanx teacher Adem it is wonderful vedio.

SUHA ABDOH

    If so,please tell me to which region his accent belongs because I’m beginning to notice that American people pronounce words in a little different ways.(I don’t say about black people’s accent. I watched the movie “Fences” a few times and it helped me.)
    Thank you Adam and thank you Moderator for being that question possible!

    KATRIN777

      Really

      Dj_Geneus

    Hi Katrin,

    His name is Mark Douglas Nelson. From what I could find online, I’d say he’s from California. He’s a professional narrator. His accent is native, but theatrical, which is why it might be throwing you off a bit.

    Adam

      Thank you Adam. I really like when he reads fiction. It feels like you’re in the middle of events and he makes me to empathize the book heroes. Thanks again.

      KATRIN777

i got 6 correct out of 10. it’s too bad

parnid nps

I think thorough is pronounced like “thare”. Can you please clear it

    Hi Pudisonu,

david nava

Hi, everybody! Though I watch engvid-lessons very oten it is my first comment. I have thought up some funny sentences to remember pronunciation of -ought words. May be it will help you too? 1.(au) You can not plough the slough./Look out! There is a drought./Shaking bough makes a souhg. 2.(af) He is rough and tough. It is enough. 3.(of) Seeing your trough I have a cough. 4.(ou) Though he kneaded the dough his furlough was not low. (I am not sure that the third and the last sentences make sence.Can anybody tell me?).

Svetlana Samenko

Interesting!!!!!
