Rin different words. In some words the
Ris sounded, but in other words the
ris silent. I’ll demonstrate the pronunciation, and will give you some sentences to practise on. To finish, you might even like to try this tongue-twister: Round the rugged rock the ragged rascal ran!
I like this lesson! Thanks you!
Excellent lesson Gill. Very useful for those whom English is second language. Thank you!
I had 10/10
thank you so much. Gill is wonderful!
It’s a great lesson, but I’d like to know the rules to prounance prural words ending in “rs”, like mohters, investors, doctors, actors and so on, btw thanks for the lesson, kind regards
Hi – the rule is the same for the plural – in all of your examples, the R is silent :-)
It is soo good
“I very like to learn pronunciation like this.”
There is just one R silent and one R sounded in British English pronunciation in this sentence.
Hi – just to clarify, there is one silent R (in ‘learn’), but there are two sounded Rs (in ‘very’ and ‘pronunciation’). Thanks for your contribution :-)
Thanks for the lesson.
I usually have an interrogation about the vowel “I”.
Sometimes the sound is “ai” , sometimes is “I:” ; eg drive / english?
Why? May we have a lesson about this pronunciation?
Have a good day and take care.
thanks that is good job , i got 9
correct out of 10.
Thank you Gill. Very useful.
thank you so much for this lesson
I love this …
You always are so clear! Thank you a lot.
It was great
Thank you so much teacher Gill, was an excellent class!
Thanks a lot for this great lesson!
i’ld like to suggest a topic for a future video,
I hope that’s ok here.
In english there are many word pairs where
one word gets the affix ‘a-‘, like live/alive
far/afar, shore/ashore etc.
(Not the negation affix for from latin derived words like a-symptomatic.)
Is there a system behind this word formation?
Thanks a lot & regards
Hi – thanks for your kind words and your interesting suggestion – I’ll see what I can do :-)
Thanks Gill. Very useful and interesting. Actually the R sound in english is very different from italian.
Your lesson, as usual, is a treat! So, I get 100%…correct.
Thanks for the lesson, You helped me a lot!

Oh Gill!… I love your British accent very much and i swear i will learning pronunciation like you after your lessons =)
I got 10! Thank you Misters Gill for the lesson.
Miss Gill,I have a question on which “r” should be spelled specifically in the middle of the letter.I mean is there any more detailed rule on which “r” should or shouldn’t be pronounced in the middle of the letter cause there are some words like
“farm” and “sorry”.The both of them are in the middle.But one isn’t spelled and the other is spelled.I’m just confused.How if there is some new word in which it has “r” in the middle.
I hope this letter of request will be read.
Thank you very much for the lesson,Miss Gill
very clearly accent and amazing illustration. thank you god bless you
Thank you Gill, you help me very much :)
Thanks a lot for this great lesson
Thanks a lot ?
@Gill really I adore your lessons but why do you emphasise the “g” so much in so much in English?
I have the impression that there is a small difference the Google translator (just copy and paste) https://translate.google.com/?ui=tob&sl=nl&tl=en&text=Engels&op=translate
I heard that Dutch is the easiest language for the English but they never say that English is too easy for the Dutch. There are namely no sexes in words that don’t stand for persons. Of course you have the verb tenses but in French there are much more tenses than in English. Also, it has no cases. (I use the Google translator thus if something is not clear then please ask me to clarify. Thanks. )
Thank you a lot for the lesson it helps fully.
I liked the quiz so much and I wished that there is a way to record myself while I pronounced the word to make sure that I did so correctly. Thanks !
Than you Gill!
Thanks a lot Gill.
Thank you very much Gill
It’s extraordinary class.
Hi Gill you are so sweet ,thanks for this helpful lesson
Just one question, are there any differences if the word ends with a silent “r” and it has an “-ing”?
Gill,I would like to express you my big ardor from your short lesson, focused on pronounciation of letter “R”,on Youtube, you are such a good teacher, it is really hard to show it and fulfill it in this kind of platform, but you mastered it, undertaked it grandiosely. Your approach was very thorough. Thank you for it, it was pleasure to listen, linguistic joy in the raw;).
For example, I also truly like the way how is pronounced letter “L” in codified british english, it sounds so soft and what I find interesting is that basic of many languages has a soft codified form, also in my mother language, Slovak. And then there is tendency of making the language harder, rougher in practical use.
Wishing you successful continuation!
I really enjoy your teaching because the way you explain is very useful .
Thank you very much!
Thank you for your lesson and this test is great!
Is is amazing !
Teacher. Why is it that in number 4: How many sounded Rs are there in this sentence? “We drove the car to the garage for repair”, the correct answer is three and not two. drove and garage are the ones with a pronounced “r” in British English. Which is the other word I’m missing? Thank you
I get a full mark, Thanks❤.
Needless to say: another precise, excellent lesson, thank you once more
Hi GIll thanks for the class
Thank you so much
I love this lesson, Thank you, Gill.
Thank you so much for this lesson.
Proud to learn with such a great teacher.
Thanks you for this lesson?
thank you gill
Thank you Jill .
I didn’t know the rules, no like this; I knew how to pronounce them correctly because I’ve always liked British English and I’ve watched many videos of it and I try my English looks like British when I speak, so I got 10/10.
If it helps, Ronnie has a lesson on pronouncing “T”! It is for North American English, but the pronunciation is mostly the same.
thanks Gill you are the best teacher??
my score is 10.
thank you so much for this lesson and the quiz. I thought the British English pronunciation is very hard, but you made it so easy for me, thank you. you are the best English teacher ever!
I like this lesson so much
thanks Gill you are the best teacher??
Thank you so much Gill. I got 10 correct out of 10.
You are fantastic! I love your classes very much… thank you.
Love this class very much. Thank you Gill.
