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 :-)

“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.
Thank you.

    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 :-)

Great job

Thursday, April 30th 2020

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 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
