ahmedalameer94

    thanks soo much mr. adam,but am wondering how we pronounce two litter in one word for example
    jugged the gg sound in this word we should pronounce it gg or long g ? i hope you understand my question
    thanks again and take care ^_^

    BOB FAISAL

      Hi Bob,

      Generally speaking, when you see a double consonant like gg, pronounce it as you would a hard form of that consonant. For gg,pronounce it like a hard g, as in gun. jogged- the j and g are soft and hard respectively.

      In lesson, lessen, and listen, the s sounds the same.

      Does that help?

      Adam

        hi teacher Adam, how sound words ending in “sts”, like:
        tests
        guests

        thanks

        AlfredMz

        It is very helpful, thanks dear teacher.

        Bah Hady Bodie

        that’s very good enough

        Yahya Hasan

    These words are very frequently we are using,but need to pronounce on right way

    kunasahoo

    Hello Dear Adam,

    You are good. One problem i can not see your writing properly.

    Thanks

      I want to learn english. Also i want to do IELTS but i am very weak in Englsih. Could help me.

      Thanks
      Sheper Ahmed

      Sheper Ahmed

        Hi Sheper,

        Have you tried watching on full screen? that usually makes it easier to see.

        As for IELTS, build your vocab- read, read, read. Once you have a good vocab, all the other elements will become easier.

        Let me know if you have specific issues though. Maybe I can help.

        Adam

    Sir can you tell me posted how to pronounce superstition?

    Soomroshahnawaz767@gmail.com

I have a question: which one is the correct sentence: God bless you or God blesses you. and why. thanks for your help.

johnseven

    Hi John.

    It’s God bless you. The idea is that I wish blessings for you, so (may) God bless you.

    Does that help?

    Adam

    God Bless you.

    fatehazka

Very important lesson, Mr. Adam. A lot of people that learn English don’t know those different sounds of |ed| here in Brazil.

Fernando

    I agree with you. This lesson is very helpful.
    Thanks Mr. Adam.

    25mom

yes,I’m agree too.

chiming

In reality, people usually speak fluenly and pronounce ‘ed’ very fast. It’s difficult to hear it. The lesson is very good. Thanks Mr. Adams very much. :)

Nhan95

Interesting lesson, thank you teacher….

clalonu

It is difficult for me How do I know t d id

Ukrit

    Hi Ukrit,

    It’s a matter of practice- the more you listen to native English, the more you’ll be able to hear the different sounds.

    Say out loud: I want to.
    I wanted to.
    The extra syllable in the second sentence might make all the difference in the context of a speech.

    Watch the video a few times until you can hear the differences clearly.

    Adam

I sorry I cann’t understand all what you said

Ukrit

    My suggestion is to have a translate software or dictionary and use it every time. Expand your vocabulary day by day then you will be good. Good luck!

    ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

It’s great and very helpful! Thank you very much Adam

DatLelx

now it’s everything so easy!!!!I should know it before..thanks

Cristina...

I was confused a little. But your lesson was helpful and interesting. Thank you Adam :)

Happy04

Could u make a video on how to pronounce “u” and “u:”? and is there a rule when they are pronounced ? for example, “boot” is “bu:t” but “book” is “buk”

icetroid

    Hi Icedtroid,

    There isn’t a rule to apply to all words, I’m afraid. However, a good dictionary will include a phonetic spelling of words. You can check individual words to know which way to pronounce these two letters.

    Hope that helps a little.

    Adam

Thanks got only 50%.

Abdul Qayum

    Don´t worry Abdul!!! Pronunciation is difficult to master. Practice makes the difference.

    Regards

    Regino

      Indeed :)

      Adam

Good job, Man!

AlexSem

7/10. I founded that I haven’t ended has I began. The last three were wronged.

Jorge Pedroso

Thanks a lot Mr.Adam…this lesson was very helpful for me.
God bless

VINITA JOHN

thank you mr.adam
this lesson was benefit to me

maya

I liked this rule of thumb. No doubt that it will help my pronunciation of words ending in -ed. Thanks Adam.

Luiz Alberto

The past form of (find) is (found) not (founded) … what do you mean when you say (founded)

Salma1995

    Salma, the word founded – it’s past participle of the word “found”, the synonym of the word “establish”

    AlexSem

    Yes, completely true, an awful mistake I made. I only thought about that immediately after I post it. Anyway I am still learning, so I make many mistakes.

    Jorge Pedroso

    I want to ask the same question , but about why fined ?

    khalesym

    Hi Salma,

    Alex is correct. To found means to establish something. We use it especially with institutions (like schools, NGOs, etc.). It can also mean started, in the same contexts.

    Adam

Thought that it was easy, not much. Must more training. Thanks Adam

Arshad.M

Very cool. This is my first day

ROBERT SALLINGER

It is a little bit confused to me .
thanks Adam

asala

not as easy as I thought ,I gonna do it again , thanks Adam

jean-pierre

When I was study english , my teacher said ” when the verb end in ‘ed ‘ in the past tense , it pronounce always like ‘ t ‘ ” . Now I know there is different depend on the last letter in the word .
Thank you adam .

AmaniAljabri

wow 10/10 :D that mean I understood the lesson ;)
Thank’s for you advice Adam I really appreciate it! I’ll be on touch so you can see the progress ;).

Emanuela

lanietoc

thank you so much .

mohamed Al alwany

I’ve scored 9/10…. not too bad.
Sometimes I’ve been in serious trouble when I’m speaking someone because a bunch of words getting out my mouth pronounced badly. So, that’s a great lesson I’ll practice a lot to catch it in my mind.
Best regards Adam!

alexmatos1980

Very useful lesson…thanks

FGuerreroL

I got 60 but I thought it was all done.

mahanengvid

Very difficult for my tongue, but very helpful
Thanks Adam

Letizzia

I don’t understand one thing. Could you explaine me please why we use “founded” with “ed”

vseiden

    I think it is regular verb found…

    vovchick

    Sorry!!!!!!! It is my mistake…..I should be very considerate

    vseiden

    Hi Vseiden,

    Just to make sure, to found means to establish, or start, especially with things such as institutions and such.

    Adam

Hey,guys! Iam first time here. I have a question. At this sentence: “I let my frends speak more than I” what must I use- I or ME at second part it. Thanks…

vovchick

    Hi vovchick. I think you should use “…more than I do.” as “…more than I speak.” But actually I’m not sure if you can shorten it for just “…I.” This I or ME thing is quite confusing for me too.

    Katya

      Oh,Thank You!!! I think I got it)

      vovchick

    I let my friends to speak more than myself.

    KATRIN777

    Hi Vovchick,

    Katya is right. You are comparing verbs so need a verb in the second clause. …more that I do. And yes, you can shorten it to I, but that seems uncomfortable for most people, which is why you’ll often hear the incorrect ‘me’ ending.

    Adam

Hi Adam,Thank you for this lesson.it was easy. I got 10/10. How will we pronounce the ‘ed’ when the word ends with a vowel sound?

hilasou23

    Hi Hilasou,

    Good question. Because nothing impedes (slows down, is an obstacle to) the tongue, we end the word with a ‘d’ sound. That being said, there are not many words that end with -ed that have a vowel before them, but:

    shoed (shod) the horse
    shooed away the birds
    freed the prisoner
    dyed the shirt
    etc.

    Adam

Thank you for the lesson! :) I was wrong just the answer 9th. I replied, ‘d’ instead of ‘t’.

dorycam

It’S SO EASY.. Do u have something more difficult than those words?

somboon

our government have blocked youtube and I cant see Your videos… so may be goodbye Adam!!!

KATRIN777

    It was my provider but. So I can see You now! Excuse me for the trouble!

    KATRIN777

      I’m glad you’re back Katrin :)

      Adam

        I’ve expected the joke from you Adam. But for me it was not really funny at the time.

        KATRIN777

thanks adam! i apreciate you class :)

inge.aurora

    Adam

thank you very much teacher Adam.

kualalumpur

Would you think that video was hard?
I got 90 though, I have a important question for you
And I need you to answer that.

I’ve heard the pronunciation of WANTED sometimes is like
WANID or WANED.
Why happens that Mr. Adam?
I do hope you help me by writing about this.
Thanks and good luck.

LuisMoreno

    Hi Luis,

    Think about Spanish ( I assume that’s your mother tongue. I apologize if I’m mistaken). If you speak Spanish very fast, some of the syllables in your words will mix into other syllables or disappear completely. The same thing happens in English (and every language for that matter). It’s a little bit laziness, and a little bit of a taking for granted that the listener will understand you even when you take shortcuts. Wanid is wanted without the trouble of an extra clicking of the tongue for the ‘t’. That’s all.
    think also of ‘want to’; many native speakers will say ‘wanna’ instead. Same idea.

    Adam

It’s a wonderful lesson. More to be done.

ibaddo79

    Always more to be done Ibaddo. :)

    Adam

Very good video. Thanks Adam for all these useful videos.They realy help me.
I want to suggest you to do a video for LOOK LIKE and LOOK AS IF. That’s something I’ve been wondering lately.However, I haven’t found anything related to that topic on the web.

boy17

    I’ll see what I can do Boy17 :)

    Adam

It was great for me!!

JobaFurquim

Also the verbs end in ( ch – sh – gh ) the (ed) ending pronounced as (t) in them

Salma1995

    You’re right Salma. Good point. I forgot to mention these :)

    Adam

    Thank you so much Adam for this lesson , Yes Salma you are right that’s why I wondered why I get 90 points in quiz I made a mistake in ‘Laughed’ , anyway Thank you all !

    lepat5on

I appreciate your efforts Mr.Adem

Salma1995

Nice. I want moreee Thanks for your help

Leviatan

Hi!
I’d like to ask what does “Jump off the page ” mean. I was watching a movie and there was this guy that wanted to be accepted at Harvard but he had to do something that the principal was requesting.
And what does “pop” in slang mean. Sometimes in Rap music they say “I like the way you pop…”
Thanks

henry19

    To “jump off the page” is to stand out, to be extraordinary or vivid. A really well-written story might have people in it that “jump off the page” — you can see them as real live humans, not just words on paper. But it is used more metaphorically as well.

    “Pop” is probably the dance style.

    engVid Moderator

    Hi Henry,

    The principal wanted the kid to be amazing. He wanted a story that wasn’t bland and boring. he wanted the story to be special and make the reader feel like he was there. (that Vegas story was really good ;) )

    Adam

Hi, Mr.Adam. It’s been a long time no see! (I was busy for my semester study.)
Have a question about the word “jog”, which way is correct to say “I’m going to jogging?”, “I’m going to jog?”, “I went there for jogging?”, “I went there for jogged?”
Best regards!

ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

    Hi Bianlei,

    I hope you did well in your studies ;)

    Jog — jogged — jogging.

    I jog three times a week.
    I love to jog.
    I love jogging.
    I went jogging with my friend.
    I went there to jog.
    I went there for a jog.

    Does this help?

    Adam

Good lesson, adam. I need pay attention in the next.

Ivo Crifar

Thank you Adam for the lesson. It was a nice review for me.

Katya

Interesting lesson on pronunciation Adam. What I like most about it was the useful tips on how to pronounce the past tense marker. However,as you know, there is much more to it that meets the eye.

What would help a lot to pronounce correctly the past tense marker “-ed” – I think – is knowing the distinction between voiced and voiceless sounds. But that’s a topic for another pronunciation Video-lesson.

Thanks again Adam. Have a great weekend!!!

Regino

    . . . talking about correctness Adam . . . did I use the expression “there is much more to it that meets the eye” correctly?

    Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    Regino

      Hi Regino,

      Firstly, yes you did use the expression correctly. Except this is about hearing more than seeing, so it’s not as simple as all that. :)

      You’re right about the voiced and unvoiced, though this is a huge topic that extends far beyond -ed endings. I’ll see if I can come up with a lesson on it though.

      Adam

100/100 again :)

jessie mccarthy

    Hi jessie, i would like practicing eng with you, if you feel interested, pls add skype : buitiennhat
    hope to see you soon
    good weekend.

thanks so much Mr Adam

sabrina amam

Hi Adam! Please tell Me when I must use DO. For instance: I (DO) let my friends to speak. So when You must use DO before verb? Thank You very much!

KATRIN777

    It is used to put more enphasis on something:

    Teacher: You do not pay attention to me Alice.
    Alice: But Mr. I DO pay attention to you.

    Hope this may help Katrin.

    Regards

    Regino

      Thank You Regino, I know about that, but I wanted to know more!!! Adam one more question: which word to use – “I must be very CAUTIOUS(CAREFUL) in using that word!”( in the case where I can insult a person and it might be dangerous for me ).

      KATRIN777

        Hi Katrin,

        Regino pointed out one answer correctly, so I’ll leave that alone. Another reason to use ‘do’ in a sentence is to emphasize an affirmative (as opposed to a negative):
        A: You don’t love me any more.
        B: I do love you, it’s just that … ;)

        As for the next question, both cautiuos and careful are correct, though careful is more commonly used. Cautious might sound a little bookish.

        Adam

          That is clear now! Thank you Adam.

          KATRIN777

great lesson.

    Wish I could help Szasia.

    Not sure what the rules are in China. Hope you find a solution soon.

    Adam

    Hi! Szasia at that time i,m also in china for my master degree in 安徽(合肥),i suggest you to download a VPN and install that in your computer then you can use Youtube easily for any help you can message me in my qq number 1486491813.

The most wonderful thing about your lessons, is that I’m learning how to teach my own students…sometimes as teachers, we know all these things, but it’s hard to teach them to others in a better way.
Many Thx, Adam!!

Danichu

Hi Adam, are there a kind of list or a page on internet which include all the regular verbs making the difference between “d” “id” “”t? Maybe it could be a good way to practice, at least for me. Thank you, I love your lessons :D

Thanks!

artimiz007

thank you Mr adam.
my phonetics teacher thought us that:
after voiceless sound “ed” pronounced /t/ except the “t” sound
and after voiced sound we pronounce “ed” as /d/ except the “d” sound
and the two exceptions “t”&”d” the “ed” pronounced after them /id/ i think that what you explained in the video but in simple,easy way so thaaaaaank very much

Thanks Adam for the tips.

Jemarie

thank you so much!!!!!

Angelina

These 3 past sounds are important and then the only other pronunciation problems that are good to be aware of are the sounds of long and short vowels. That’s it. The rest of English pronunciation is too complicated!

Maldives14

WOW your video is always useful when speaking English!

uinxsa

Hi teacher, this is the first that I write you, well it’s very hard to me to see the difference when I am listening them or when I want to pronounce them, I learned for example if they fihish in vocal like e in deleted, I could say id,but the rest not really, it’s hard to make the difference when a person is talking in past, maybe to listen the context, that’s I think about this topic.

dupernatural

yes this topic is very interesting!!!

Hello, so.. If the word ends in “sh” like refurbish… the “ed” sound will be “t”? Am I right?

Carlos Quesada L

Thank you very much,it really helps.

Shaoheng Li

Thank you very much for your wonderful lesson.
Could you please answer my confusing question: For example in the phrase ” laughed out loud”.
My teacher teaches me about liason but is it awkward to link the ending /t/ of laughed to the word out. Thank you for your thought on this.

amroo 046

Thanks a lot
please I learned that if the last sound before -ed is voiceless like \t-s\ i will say the ed as t like missed it becomes \mIst\
why i say here wanted as d not t.

wef Islam

Hi teacher Adam. Thanks for sharing your thoughts to us. More power.

Noraisa

Thanks you very much sir.

Manoj Mote

Hi Adm I am sorry but i thing the word find is regular verb so we can’t say founded because found is the past form of the verb find as you mentioned in the sound of ed as / id / .
thank you

samo sam

    hey Samo, I think you are mixing up two words. Adam used the word found which is not the past of find. To found means to establish. So therefor we can say founded as the past of found, too :)

Hi)
I do understand how to use, but I still need time to hold it in my head, as I see.
It’s not very easy to remember or feel where I should use -d ot -t ending.
Thank you, Adam.

Nastya

Ade Kusnaendar

Thank you very much Mr. Adam.It’s a useful lesson.
Can I Know Why we say (laughed)|t|sound?

Abeer Yassin

Hi Adam.Is word “wicked” an exception ( it doesn’t sound “wickt”)?
P.S. Did I write this sentence correctly( Is correct “Is word” or ” Is the word” ?

Oleg123

I got 10 in the test and the question is what does mean “flipped burgers” , could you describe this using different words.(Many of the managers at McDonald’s flipped burgers when they started working there)the sentence was in the test.
P.S. Did I write this sentence correctly?

Oleg123

    When you cook hamburgers, you flip them – i. e., turn them over (here’s a video). “Flipping burgers” can mean working at a fast food place in general. It can even be a noun: “burger flipper”.

    engVid Moderator

Engvid Moderator or Adam, could you answer my first question about word “wicked” ( Is this an exception”)( it doesn’t sound “wickt”)

Oleg123

thank
it was good exam
it worked with me because in Arabic language we learn how the letter voices come out.
its depending on breathing and ….etc.

it was good :)

F.Anas

Hello, Teacher Adam

saad ali

shihai182

thanks for the lesson!

chinh trong

Thank you, teacher very much.
but how could i pronounce if the verb ending with ed ending other letter than those ones you told.

ahmed1997

thanks adam!

tam97

Also another tip to identify it is using the pattern of voice and voiceless. If one word ends with a voiceless sound, we use T, if ends with voice sound is D and the termination on T or D to the ID.
Is that correct Adamn?

NikkiVergez

Thank you for the lesson!
I want to ask about synonym of ‘bits of knowledge’.
There are 4 the choice namely :
a. portions of material
b. bits of evidence
c. pieces of data
d. facts of news
Actually, which one may be best rephrased as?
I’m sorry for asking this question, because I got confused with this question.

Soly5soly

khaled841

Hi Alex, Please make a video on words ending with -ed that have nothing with the past tense, like “high-heeled” or “open-toed”, “cold-blooded”, etc.

alijava

Oops, Adam. I wrote your name wrongly.

alijava

HI,THIS IS SUPER HELPFUL FOR MY EXAM

yanjun123

Hard to go through all the comments, so excuse me if I am doubling an already answered one.

Correct me if I am wrong, but there seems to be a fourth group where the -ed syllable actually gets very clear pronunciation. Even though the words would belong to the |t| group (along with ‘fixed’), I noticed they lean more towards the |id| (‘wanted’) group. The two words that come to mind are: naked and wicked. Do you agree?

[It would be great if you could introduce weekly/fortnightly AMA sessions on youtube, guys]

nutondev

+ crooked

nutondev

How it is pronounced when before -ed are the letters “a, b, c, h, í, j, o, q, s, u, w, z”?. thanks.
