    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 ^_^

    Profile photo of BOB FAISAL 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?

        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.

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

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

    I agree with you. This lesson is very helpful.

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. :)

Profile photo of clalonu clalonu

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

Profile photo of Ukrit 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.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

I sorry I cann’t understand all what you said

Profile photo of Ukrit 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!

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”

Profile photo of icetroid 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.

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

Profile photo of Salma1995 Salma1995

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

    Profile photo of AlexSem 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.

    Profile photo of Jorge Pedroso Jorge Pedroso

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

    Profile photo of khalesym 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.

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…

Profile photo of vovchick 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.

    Profile photo of Katya Katya

    I let my friends to speak more than myself.

    Profile photo of KATRIN777 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.

    Profile photo of Adam 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?

Profile photo of hilasou23 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

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

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

Thanks and good luck.

Profile photo of LuisMoreno 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.

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…”

Profile photo of henry19 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.

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator 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 ;) )

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!

    I went there for a jog.

Profile photo of Katya 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!!!

Profile photo of Regino 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.

    Profile photo of Regino 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.

    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.


    Profile photo of Regino 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 ).

      Profile photo of KATRIN777 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.

        Profile photo of Adam Adam

          That is clear now! Thank you Adam.

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.

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

Profile photo of samo sam 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 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” ?

Profile photo of Oleg123 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?

Profile photo of Oleg123 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 or Adam, could you answer my first question about word “wicked” ( Is this an exception”)( it doesn’t sound “wickt”)

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?

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.

Profile photo of yanjun123 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]
