what are the differetiate roman numbers and english numbers

Wednesday, August 4th 2010

    Roman numerals look like this: I II III IV V VI etc. English numbers look like this: 1 2 3 4 5 6.

    Wednesday, August 18th 2010

      Hi Ronny,

      I understand what you mean. But there are no “English” numbers. The numbers that you think are referred as “Arabic”. What is wrong, because they came to Europe from India via Arabica years ago.

      Monday, July 1st 2013

      Hi Ronny

      When you say 3 – three I hear: ~ tri. But when you say 30 – I hear: ~ firtee. Is the pronounciation of 3 and 30 always different? Or can I say: ~ “free”, “firtee”?

      Sunday, February 6th 2011

        Yeah, of course. You can pronounce both twen-T, and tweny. It depends on which accent you want to use Canadian, or American. . .

When we speak [i], the tongue tip can hang in the air.
When we speak[t], the tongue tip touches the alveolar ridge.

Does the tongue tip move from touching the alveolar ridge to hanging in the air when we pronounce “tea[ti]” ?

I remember when I couldn’t spell 15 and 50 in the right way, instead to say fifteen and fifty i was say fiveteen and fivety

Monday, October 4th 2010

Where is quiz ?

Monday, October 11th 2010

    It is pretty difficult to make quizzes for pronunciation, so some of these lessons don’t have quizzes. Sorry!

    Tuesday, October 12th 2010

      Here is a suggestion. You can provide sound effect, so on that way we can choose the right answer. For example, we hear some voice pronouncing specific word, and then decide if the pronouncing is right or false.

Wednesday, February 20th 2013

Could you give me the hint when hearing 14 and 40? I cannot differentiate them sometimes.

Saturday, June 22nd 2013

    Listen for the “n” at the end of “fourteen”! And the “eeeee” sound is longer in “fourteen”. But if you aren’t sure, just ask — lots of native English speakers have a hard time telling them apart, too!

    Wednesday, June 26th 2013

thanks for the lesson rony :)

Monday, July 8th 2013

I Have a big problem with using the tenses
could u advice me.

Thank u

Tuesday, August 6th 2013

I live in Singapore since last year and the funny thing about the numbers pronunciation here is, that they say one three or three zero. They are just fed up with trying to understand it in a normal way :)) Btw, which sentence sounds better: 1. I live in Singapore or 2. I am living in Singapore. I know the grammar rules for both tenses and I guess both are correct but whenever I say this, I am a little bit confused. Thx!!!

Friday, August 16th 2013

Hello Ronnie,

I visited some american accent training websites to know how to pronounce the numbers.

As they said in the video that “teen” in 13 to 19 are pronounced as you taught. But for 30, it is “thirdy” in pronunciation instead of pronouncing ‘thirty” , the ” t” becomes flap T or fast D. Is it wrong? Can you Please guide me ?

Friday, September 20th 2013

Thanks, you are best teacher.
