I’ve found this lesson particularly fascinating and worthwhile, I finally understood why native speakers pronounce the article “the” in different ways… :)

Dear Rebecca,
Nice reminder: learning a language is also listen to sounds.
Yours sincerely.

    Yes, for sure. As I said in the video, you have to train your eyes, your ears, and your mouth. My best to you, Peter.

Ahbane Abdelhamid

Thank you, Rebecca, for your lessons they are so useful for me but why there is not the quiz in this lesson?

Mohsen Tatoo

    No quiz because it’s basically a pronunciation lesson, so hard to test as such! All the best to you. Mohsen.

    Rebecca

What are the advantages and disadvantages? There aren´t any disadvantages about this lesson, though this last one was quite a mouthful ;)

Emanoel Pereira

Wow,you have changed a lot.Last time,your lesson is often boring but now,it is funny and exciting.
Thank you teacher Rebecca for all your useful lesson.

Dear teacher, Rebecca, although I’ve known that there are some different pronunciations of “and” and “the” in a sentence before, you give me more explnations. Thank you and May you happyness!

noneego

Pronunciation of English sounds is not a problem to me, but there are some difficulties in sound transitions when one word ends and another starts, like from TH to S. Would you, please, make a lesson about sound transitions for speaking faster and sounding like a native speaker?

Hi Rebecca!

Thanks for this lesson, I did not know the way “and” has to be pronounced until now. That is very interesting, so now we can sound more native.

Hi, Rebecca,
Why are not any critics amoung your aprentices? Are you perfect teacher? I don’t have much knowlege of English for to find your mistakes, but I’m sure that an only commendable comments are not good. What do you think about it?

svetashev

Hi Rebeca
Thank you so much for every single lesson you have made. I have improved a lot and I owe it to you among other internet teachers.

aclesio

    I think it is a little peculiar to me seeing this sentence: ” I have improved a lot” I think it is better to say: I have gotton better at English a lot.However, a native speaker should give some piece of advice on this matter like Rebeca.

sayedfarouk990

Hi Rebecca!If it’s convevient for you could you please teach a lesson on the word “of”.(I don’t know the proper noun for this kind of pronunciation issue that I’ve got in my mind,maybe it’s considered spoken contraction I’m not sure)I’m really a English enthusiast,watching n listening English all day long.Here is my question:phraes like “full of”and”call it”.For example the phrase”full of”in their mouths sound like “ful/le/v”,there is “le” in the middle instead of “e”,and”call it” sounds like “cal/li/t”.Other examples are”all in all”(sounds like”al/lin/all),”In it”(sounds like”in/ni/t)

Erik1774

    Yes, you are right, Erik1774. I will check on that lesson with the other teachers. All the best to you.

Bravo Rebecca!

That’s an extraordinary lesson! I had never heard about it before. And I am delighted for having learned this important topic.

Actually, I had already realised native English speakers pronounced the word “the” in different ways, but I used to think it was a matter of accents. But I was wrong. Thank you for correcting me.

See you!

Sebasalg

Ty it was extremely helpful. When I was reading out loud, I pronounced “the” as “thus”or “thee”automatically and didn’t know which form was correct, now I know that both pronunciations are applicable. Thank you

Great as usual, Rebecca. Much appreciated. Your way of learning so amazing!

Reda Zaghloul

Hi! It’s interesting lesson!

Anastasia

Good evening! Thanks for the interesting lesson, Rebecca. I would like to supplement the application of the definite article “the” in English: We use the … when there is only one of something: 1)What is the longest river in the world?(there is only one longest river); 2) The earth goes round the sun and the moon goes round the earth.3)I’m going away at the end of this month. Don’t forget the: Paris is the capital of France.(not ‘Paris is capital of…’) But we use a/an to say what kind of thing something is. Compare the and a

Dear Rebecca, Thank you very much for your amazing lessons! I have a question about this one. “The apples are over there”. Does it mean both “no more apples” and “The apples are actually present there” or just the second meaning is correct? If so, could you please explain why the meaning of “no more apples” (apples are over) does not work? Thank you very much in advance.
