Why you on 4:53 “often” say ofTen. other english people say “ofn” without “t” like this https://ru.forvo.com/word/often/#en

    in American accent you will say often without “t”
    but in British accent you will say often with the letter “t”

Thank you a lot for your answer,

    — sometimes followed by to + verb
