    Hi there! You were lucky enough Carlos to be the first one to post a comment. It’s not that easy, let me tell you.

    Congrats! Have a great day!

      Hi Ronnie, how’ve you been? To tell the truth these two sounds are a real problem for Spanish speakers.

      Often times,we don’t even make a clear distinction between them. In fact, we look at them as interchangeable.

      Engaging pronunciation lesson Ronnie! Thanks a lot.

        Hi Regino! You know lots of words in english and have an excellent written expression. How long have you been studying english? Share the secret, I’d like to improve my vocabulary. thx!

        Wednesday, June 3rd 2015

          Well, well, well . . . perseverance is the secret Carlos. I strongly believe that the only way to improve your English is through hard work and dogged perseverance; that is showing determination and not giving up easily.

          Your writing skills -as far as I can see- are pretty well Carlos. I’m quite sure that you -like me- have studied English for some time now.

          Thanks for your comments, they are really very encouraging.

          All the best, have a great weekend!

The Portuguese, pronounce “J” and “Y” the same as you, anyway the word “yeast” sounds pretty like “east” (at least to me, besides I didn’t know the word or is meaning).

Wednesday, July 8th 2015

Hi there,I really like your pronunciation classes. I used to struggle with the 13 and 30 sounds. But now, I am super clear about them!

I notice that I am struggling with the pronunciations of /e/ and /ai/. For example, bread vs. bride, while, well, awarem etc. I know that they are two different pronunciation. However, I could not disguish them when I say the words. I hope you could have a class of these two sounds, thank you very much!!!!!!!
