Hello Rebecca,
I’m really appreciate your video lessons.
When I was founding out an English information, I found your webpage. It’s quite good. I’m sure that It’s going to improve my english skills.
I’d like to know “L”, “R” pronunciation.
It’s really difficult for me who is KOREAN.
Thanks in advance.


    Dear Charlie,

    This is Bill Ralens here from http://www.naruhodo-eigo.com. In your post, you asked about the pronunciation for L and R. I first suggest getting a mirror so you can watch yourself. Feedback is everything you know. To pronounce R, open your mouth, place your hands in front of your face and breathe out like you are wanting to waRm up your hands. R is waRm. To pronounce L, place the tip of your tongue on the back of your top two center teeth. Suck air in and you’ll notice that the air feels coLd on your tongue. L is coLd. That is how you pronounce L and R.


      Thanks for helping out, Bill.

        Hi,Rebecca,Could you tell me how about the exam levels of English in the world?And please give me some advice how to learn more international or North English in China.Thanks for your lively courses.


      Actually Bill to pronounce L you put the end of your tongue on your lower teeth keeping rest of your tongue flat and exhale across the top of your mouth never moving your tongue and pronounce from your throat

    Hi. I heard about this site from my foreign friend but I can’t view your videos here in China. Do you have any alternatives? Hope you can help me out with this. I want to be a fan of your videos too, same as my friend. Thanks!


      Hi xiaojana. You will have to use a “proxy” that will allow you to view YouTube videos in China. Right now there is no other option. We are hoping in the future to put our lessons on Youku or a similar Chinese site.

Hello Rebecca,

Thanks a lot for your lessons. I would appreciate if you can send me a bigger list of regular verbs and their pronunciation. I understood your explanation about them, but I do not know how can I know the right way of pronunciation. Is there any rule to follow?

Thanks in advance,



    There are three rules to pronounce past tense verbs.
    1. The past tense ( ed) is pronounced as (t) when the last sound in the present tense is voiceless :
    Ex: Look — Looked (t)
    Miss — Missed
    Stop — Stopped
    2. The past tense (ed) is pronounced as (d) when the last sound in the present tense verb is a Vowel or a voiced consonant
    Ex : Love — Loved (d)
    Stay — Stayed
    Tune — Tuned
    3. The past tense (ed) is pronounced as (id) when the last sound in the present tense verb is t or d
    Ex : End — Ended (id)
    Brand– Branded
    paste — pasted
    I hope this will help you.


      Thankx for the detail information. That is I want to know.


      Great advice, thank you!

Thanks to all of you for your feedback and please let me know if there are other topics you would like to have me explain.

English pronunciation has a lot of variations, but keep listening carefully and don’t give up.

Sandra and Hector – I will email you some information about what you’ve asked about.

    Hi Rebecca! thank you for this video lesson, the pronunciation of the past tense regular verb is a big problem for me

Dear Rebecca:

Since june i’m studying english, and for me is very hard to understand the correct pronuntiation of regular verbs in past tense, so i need a lot of help from you; first as well as Sandra and Hector i need a list of regular verbs with their corrects pronuntations also i want a list about the usual irregular verbs.

I hope to get your response soon, thanks a lot.

This is my first view at your website it’s amazing!!!!

thanks 4 posting your videos. Could you cast some light as 2 how 2 pronounce thew u vowel. For instance pool and pull; fool and full. thanks again

Profile photo of carlos blanco carlos blanco

Hi Carlos

Thanks for your comments.

In the word pull or full the u is short as in the words up, cup or nut. It’s a kind of “uh” sound.

In pool and fool the u sound is longer, like “oo” and you need to bring your lips together into a kind of o shape.

Hope this helps.

Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Hi George

Glad you found the lesson helpful. There are many grammar books which provide a list of the irregular English verbs. For example, you can look at the back of English Grammar In Use by Raymond Murphy.

It’s kind of difficult to find a list of the regular verbs and how they sound because there are so many of them. There are some guidelines you can follow by looking into an English pronunciation book. You can also try to listen carefully to good native speaker pronunciation and you can learn well that way.

Good luck to you!

Hi Rebecca
you are very good teacher .
I’m going to appeare in IELTS exam that’s why I need your help. Basically I belong to urdu medium. Would you please guide me how can I get 7 band.

Profile photo of rabia rabia

    Hi Rabia

    The IELTS is quite a challenging exam. Please allow enough time to prepare for it. The speakers have English and Australian accents on the listening sections of the exam and you must get used to this.

    You can start by checking this website:


    It will give you a lot of information, tips and strategies to get a higher score on the exam.

    You also need to get hold of a good IELTS exam preparation guide book, such as Cambridge or any of those you see recommened on the website above.

    Work through the tests, find out your weaker areas, and then do lots of additional practice to strengthen yourself in those areas.

    It would certainly be helpful to attend a good IELTS preparation class if you can. You need to get feedback from a teacher on your IELTS writing.

    Make sure you know whether you need to take the General or Academic IELTS.

    All the best to you, Rabia.

Needless to say u r a very good teacher. Your gesture,body language, voice quality and tone are perfact and flawless. Keep learning good english in a very simple and interested way.



    Thanks for your kind words, Surya. I wish you all the best.

Hello Rebecca! You are a great teacher . I ´ve learned a lot from your class . Thank you very much , but I was wondering if you could help me to improve my listening skills , I am going to take TOEFL exam again and I want to reach a higher score . Please can you email me some information?
Thanks a lot!


    Aside from doing extra practice from various TOEFL guidebooks, you might want to look for a really good listening book and CD called Learn to Listen, Listen to Learn. It has many helpful exercises to build up your listening skills.

    Remember also that taking notes effectively will make a big difference to your listening score, as well as your integrated writing response.

Hi, your lessons are great! I’m using them here in Slovakia to teach adults. Some of your videos the focus is not constant. Some camera advice…the camera should have an infinity focus setting. Try setting it to that setting, it should stay focused on the board and not go out of focus when you step forward. It should also sufficiently keep you in focus when you step forward. Keep up the great work! TJ

There are some rules, but I believe the easier way would be for you to learn naturally through listening, at this stage.

You don’t need to apologize for your English. How wonderful that you have made so much progress. That’s all any of us can do – keep going, try our best. Each day you will improve.

My best wishes to you.

Profile photo of ann1970 ann1970

hello, Rebeca
that is defenitely a very important subject to teach our students. But, you forgot to teach us when we are supposed to sound like “t” or d” , which happens to most of the verbs….then you say, “we have 3 options” it might sound like i can pronounce the verbs whatever way I want, so here are the rules, people:

t sound- verbds ending in – f- k-p-ch-cs-ss
ed sound- verbs ending in t or d
d sound- for the rest of the verbs…
thank you]


hi my best teacher please i want to know is there any rules to know whene you pronociat the verb like d or id or d i want please more details about this thanks a lot mes best wishes


well, i’m so glad to see these video lessons about grammar.

Hi Robecca, May you recommend for me a website that telling more about how to get correctly pronunciation for regular verbs in past tense,like when we say -ed is -t,-d or -id. Or you may talk about that more detail

Profile photo of Nhat Nguyen Nhat Nguyen

nice.nice.nice….thank u miss you are a very good teacher. and we wait from you and from your partenersother lessons with the same quality.


Very nice, Rebecca. I never knew that in some past regular verbs there is a ‘t’ sound.
I always pronounced (‘d’ sound?) ‘d’ and ‘id’ but never ‘t’ sound.
Well, I really don’t see such a big difference when pronouncing “worked” with ‘d’ and ‘t’.
It somehow always overcome the ‘t’ sound.

I really do not know what I wanted (‘id’?) to say above, but I hope you understood me.

One more thing. You said there are some rules in the last message. Can you tell us what are those rules?

Thank you! Keep up the good work. (This is an idiom, right?)

Hallo, Rebecca! Thank you for the lesson! This topic had been a big problem to me for a long time. I used to think that native speakers don’t pronunce the ending -d letter at all, because I rarely heard that sound when I washed films or listen to the music.

    Profile photo of sweetchild sweetchild

Rebecca thanks 4 your effort.



I am a Brazilian. Times ago I found a book which taught me that if the verb ends in -TED or -DED, the suffix ED sounds as /ID/. Examples: ADDED, WANTED.

If the last sound of the verb ends in your lips, ED sounds as /T/ as in WASHED /T/, STOPPED /T/.

And if the last sound of the verb is in throat, the suffix ED sound as /D/ such as ARRIVED /D/, TATTOOED /D/.

Do you agree with this, teacher?

I have a little question about the quiz of this lesson: I don’t understand the difference that there is between these 2 verbs negociated and appreciated; both of them ended by “t” but their pronounciation are different. can you please tell me why. Thanks in advance for your help.

hi rebecca!

Appreciated is pronounced as d or id. I took a quiz, my answer was id but it says i was wrong. which is really correct pronunciation? thanks.


i need to study more


I have a doubt!
Would you consider these differences important to teach them in a EFL classroom for just kids?
When would you teach it?
Thanks anyway :)

Hey Rebecca, i’m a foreigner from israel.

i think the site is amazingly good to learn english and i hope to improve really soon.

although your video was pretty clear i wanted to ask: when do i know i need to pronounce it ‘t’/’ed’/’id’ ?
you showed some example but you didn’t give guideline.

looking forward for your answer.

BTW, if i wanna learn properly, is there an order for watching videos ?

oh last question, how can i improve my voice infliction and pronunciation while talking ? i can easily express myself over writing but i would say a sentence in 30 second.

again, Thank you Rebecca.

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks for the lesson. I’ve learned a lot, but I got a question from the quiz. Isn’t “appreciated” pronounced “id”? Thanks a lot!!


    I think you right. We must use in this word.

      I think you right. We must use id in this word.

What is the difference between
1 should have and should have been
2 would have and would have been
3 could have could have been

Profile photo of patilrr patilrr

    Hi patilrr ….

    should have been –> Which is happened in past …
    Should have —- > Which is going to happen in future

    would have been — > we assumed that something is happened in past …
    would have —> something is going to happen in future ….

    could have been –> less possibility of happened in past …

    could –> less possibility of something …

Don’t worry about forgetting gmramar. The mere fact that you are speaking English means that gmramar is constantly being applied and memory is constantly being stimulated. It is fantastic that you are taking the time to teach your students Accent Reduction. With today’s global workforce bringing together all the diverse speakers of English as a second language, it is vital that one’s accent be understood. An understandable accent will make the difference in their job success. Cudos to you!www.askalia.squarespace.comAlia


hi Rebecca, thanx for the lesson. I have a quick question. In the test above it says appreciated is pronounced as “d” instead of “id”. it seems, it ends in “t” sound. if so why is that? please help.


Hi, Rebecca, your lesson is very good but i wont to start from first lesson. I can not to deal what is first lesson, second lesson etc.


Excellent presentaton thank you very much.
I just didn´t undertand the rule to pronunciate t or d. (id is when the word finish in t or d but the other two I´m not sure). regards

Thank you Rebecca, this lesson is very good.

Hi Rebecca! Your videos are all great and I have learned a lot from your videos. I’m just wondering why the correct answer for apprecitaed is “d” and not “id”. I took the test and i got one mistake in #4.
4. appreciated
d-correct answer
id-my answer (wrong)




    I think you are right. 4 nuvber is wrong in quiz, I think so. Good luck.

thanks for your lesson


hello, thanks for your lessons, I have a question, I’ve done the quiz, and I thaught for long that “appreciated” is pronounced with ‘id’ rather than’d’, so how could we differenciate between “negotiated” or “granted”?

I have a remark concerning the quiz:
according to the rule ‘appreciated’ must pronounce like ‘id’, but in the correction I found the correct answer is ‘t’.

Hi Rebecca! Than kou very much for this lesson. I got a 90 on the quiz, but I really have a doubt. The answer I had wrong was that one about the pronunciation of the verb “appreciated”. According to your explanation and to the grammar I have learned so far, the final “ed” in this case should be pronunciated as “id”, nevertheless, the system tells me that it should be “d”. I’d like you to explain that to me, please.

Thank you so much for the video. I’m having one question regarding the quiz: Can it be that it is a little programming mistake regarding pronunciation of ed – in appreciated? – I clicked on – – id and it was shown as a mistake and the solution was shown as being – d. When I pronounce the word – appreciated – I have the feeling that I pronounce the ed ending – as id and not as d. – – I love all your work and also appreciate all your effort. My lines here should not come as a complaint at all. It’s just a small hint. It can happen. – thanks again for your work . best wishes, Rachel

Dear Rebecca;
First of all, thank you so much for your useful lessons. I think “d” and “ed” realised as “t”after unvoised letters except “t”., and “d” after voiced letters except “d”. And they realised as “id” after D, and T. What I would like to ask you about is in the quiz there are two verbs which are “appreciate “, and “negotiate”. It is realised after the first one as”d”, and realised after the second one as”id”
Could you please explain it for me?
Thank you again for you.
