Wooow I really liked the lesson . It is so interesting and so simple too. I`ve suffered a lot about that matter of sounds but your teaching method made it so simple.

Tuesday, April 12th 2011

Which two verbs have different -ed endings?

bugged, enjoyed
laughed, kissed
killed, wrapped
waited, wanted

Why the answer is killed and wrapped in this questions? I dun really get it, can you further explain it to me?

Tuesday, April 12th 2011

    When the letter before the -ed ending is ‘p’, the sound of the -ed will be like a ‘t’.
    When the letter before the -ed is ‘l’, the sound is like a -d sound. Try to look for more examples to help you.

    Friday, August 12th 2011

God be with you and good luck

Thursday, May 26th 2011

its too good great keep it

Friday, May 27th 2011

Thanks it’s a very nice presentation!now I can pronounce and differentiate what regular verbs endings in /t/”unvoiced”,/d/ “voiced”, and /d/,/t/ two syllables…!

Friday, May 27th 2011

it´s complicated to learn a foreign language
but i think that i write better than i speak,mainly because when you´re just starting to learn another language you have your own way of speaking,your own accent,and it´s very hard for those who are native in this language understand what you´re talking about
but practice makes perfection!

Friday, May 27th 2011

    That is true. Having lived in other countries I know how difficult it is to learn another language. Good luck!

remarkable lesson!!

Thursday, February 16th 2012

Thank Jon very much! Your lesson is very useful.

But could you make videos that teach pronunciation both words and sentences? Because I can read exactly a word, but when I put it in sentences and conversation, it goes wrong.

Saturday, February 18th 2012

You are the best teacher.This lesson is very easy to learn.Can you give me how to
pronunce l sound at the end of a word such as will, hill or heel.It is really difficult for me.

Monday, March 26th 2012

it’s really a helpful lesson. But in the lesson,you seem to pronounce “D” and “T” at the end of word with the same sound. It do confuse me. Anyhow, Thank you for good lesson, JOn.

Wednesday, March 28th 2012

At first it’s hard to learn but I think I just need to train more!Thank You!
Oh, by the way, I just noticed you don’t really need to pronounce the “E” sound?It sounds like:fixd,lovd,livd,kisst,stoppt,etc…is that right?

Friday, August 10th 2012

thank you for all effort so as to make it easy

Thursday, August 16th 2012

I always had doubts about the words ending – ed, but now I had no more. So, thanks for this useful lesson. Hugs, from Brazil

Sunday, August 26th 2012

It’s silly when g-h makes a /f/ sound. “F” is the laziest letter in the alphabet that it’s not in the words “laugh” or “alphabet.”
