Thank you teacher Jade .

Soei

    Congratulations. You’re the first one again.

    nkh

Thanks very much Jade, this is the first time I watch your video.

struggleForEng

Hello why you don’t speak about the letter “t” in the slang language when the letter is dropped.
It seems for example the word little is pronounced li’le.
Thx for your courses.

fredojo

    This is the glottal stop Fredojo . T stays like deep in your throat and you breathe it out like an H

    Have a nice day

      Thanks for your reply.

Hi, everyone!
It`s the 1111th lesson! Congratulations to EngVid!
Very useful lesson for those who has difficulties in pronunciation, especially sounds [th] I`ve got a friend who suffers this problem. I`ll

nataanna

Sorry, I did`t finish my comment. Something happened with my laptop. So, I`ll continue….
I`ll tell her how to overcome her trouble and she`ll sound almost like real Londoner.
Though I don`t like “cockni” accent.

nataanna

    this time you are among the first ones, this courage of you, congratulations.

    SKIKDA

      Yes, thank you. I was happy as well!!!

      nataanna

      You’re wrong. Teacher Soei is the first one again. I think when you visited engvid, you saw Natanna as the first one. By the way, I hope, that Natanna can be the first one in next video.

      nkh

        Hi, nkh453. I know I’m not the first one. I was happy to be AMONG the first ones as SKIKDA noticed.
        And I never give up trying!

        nataanna

          If you wanna be the first who comments, so it is easy and you can be always the first, Just get into the website about 7 am (the timing of Algeria (+1)), I used to find the field of comments empty at that time.
          :)

          struggleForEng

          Hi, struggleForEng! Thank you for the advice. I’ll follow it. There were times I wasn’t interested in comments on EngVid ( I just watched videos) and I noticed that only at 2am (Algeria timing) the fields were empty!!! Can you imagine that?!
          Do you know we have been struggling for the first comment since November/October? I think it gives us more interest and makes the process more competitive.
          See you.

          nataanna

          I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it.

          nkh

        Hi my friend. Among first oneS is all right. It’s completely true. Take care.

        Soei

    *Cockney, sorry

Actually there isn’t a”glotal stop”, only a Glottal ‘T’.
water /ˈwɔː ə/ intead of /ˈwɔːtə/

aroibas

Oh! Sorry. It’s ‘instead’ not ‘intead’, innit?

aroibas

This Londoner accent is a little weird but if you live there, you will be able to find out its rules, in fact, I was there in a recruitment for a job as a bus driver and I had some problems to understand what they were telling me, I had to imagine approximately the meaning of the words and sounds in Cockney and it was not easy, but anyway, it was a curious experience. Thanks a lot, teacher Jade, a very interesting lesson.

angardiobel

Nice to see you again Jade!Great lesson!But what if you can´t talk regularly to “Real Londoners”??It´s difficult to get used to this accent if you only learn English with books and other sources like EngVid.com
I hardly realise about accents in English, so, I will appreciate if somebody here can tell me which accent Gill speaks. In my opinion, she speaks very clearly and, as far as I know, she is from the UK, isn´t she???

knopfler86

Hi Jade! Actualy you speak in this slang:) Yuor accent is peculiar

Vladimir

Hello Jade. Thank you for teaching us.
But, to tell you the truth_no offense_ I didn’t like it anymore.
By the way, nice teaching

nkh

Hi Jade! It’s good to see you again, and thanks for another lesson. I like your accent. I visited London last year and I liked your city. It could be great for me to get a better comprehension of the language that is spoken in the streets.

Jorge

Hi Jade! Thanks for this video, the accent is something really important for learning, so the more I learn the better I understand the language.

Last time I came to London I almost understood nothing of what people said and now you have cleared up my mind: Londoners almost speak a language of their own!

mohamed111

Hello Jade,
You are far better on EngVid than on your own channel on YouTube. Thank you for this useful lesson.

jpfromparis

It was a good lesson, however, I’m not planning to speak like that, I mean, no effence, I don’t want to be like them I just want to learn how to speak English properly. It’s good to know this kind of conversation if you want to understand what they’re saying but I think it’s not necessary to speak like that.

CART

Hello Jade! My name is Irina and I’m going to write a corse work about the deference between the language of aristocrats and the language of lower class people on the example of the serial Downton Abby. Can you help me with some materials? Maybe some articles or your own observations? I’m going to focus on the vocabulary and the grammar. Are there any distinguishing features?

Iren5

Thank you, Jade! I must confess, it is really hard to understand people when they speak with this accent. It is so confusing! Even more, they don’t understand me when I try to speak English (as in the textbooks ;-).

NellyBG

Hi Jade!

That’s an amazing lesson! I am very surprised how you can explain complex subjects in such an easy, didactic and pleasant way.

While I was studying in an English course, a long time ago, I had to do a presentation about London and I studied a little bit about this topic (of course, not so deeply). Besides, I remember I read something about the “rhyming slangs”. For instance, “loaf of bread” which means “head”, “bee and honey” that means “money” and “dog and bone” which means “telephone”. Anyway, I reckon it was part of the old Cockney vocabulary, that isn’t used any longer, as you have mentioned.

Even though I don’t intend to speak like that, it is important to know that there is a city on Earth where people use it (and not any city, but London!).

Cheers and regards from Rio de Janeiro!

Eduardo França

thank you jade !! you have a good personality and i love to leasone to you
