Thanks a lot for your excellent lessons and quizzes

    An award? I usually give my students chocolate in class, but I don’t think that would survive in the mail. Sorry!

    Friday, December 7th 2012

      i got 10 correct out of 10

      hi alex!
      i come from vietnam
      In your lesson, i heard that you said:”… has 2 different pronunciation” but i think that we have to use : 2 various pronunciation. Please tell me the difference between different and various !!!

      Sunday, December 9th 2012

        i’m from VN , too. : ))

        Saturday, November 9th 2013

          me too :))

      How to recieve chocolate from Sir Alex!?

      Thursday, January 17th 2013

        Hello Alex. I like your lessons very much. But I haven’t found a full lesson about transcription. I think it would be very useful for many people to see all signs of transcription and to hear it’s pronunciation by teacher.

        Sunday, April 14th 2013

      jajaja. Thanks Alex….

      Saturday, July 6th 2013

      Hi! Alex, i suggest question 5 has a wrong answer. According to quize it is “birthday”. I am positive there are all answers are wrond. No way “birthday” sounds like TH sound in word “three”. I looked up in the dictionary.[θ] sound belongs to “birthday”… Also there is a mistake in question 7. With has no a sound TH like in the word “three”.

      Saturday, April 4th 2015

    thanks teacher

    Thursday, March 30th 2017

Thank you very much!
But any dictionary says that “th” in “with” sounds like “th” in “the”.
Can you comment it, please!
Thank you in advance!!!

Friday, December 7th 2012

    Really? I’ll have to double check my dictionaries. I can maybe see if the next word starts with a vowel sound.

    Example: “I need help with a problem.” vs. “I’m not good with people.”

    Hmm, I don’t think I’ve ever noticed that before, but now that you mention it, I do pronounce it both ways sometimes!

    Friday, December 7th 2012

I have to work a lot in my pronunciation. This lesson has helped me a lot. Thank you.

Friday, December 7th 2012

It was fun exercising my tongue.

Friday, December 7th 2012

If someone was listening me practising it, then they would never guess what words I try to say. Specialy if th sound is in the middle of the word. This sound is extremly hard for me.

Friday, December 7th 2012

    You also was born in Poland and You can pronounce it properly. Your case make me hopeful, that i will succeed with it too (i’m little older than 7 but maybe still not to old :) ).

    Friday, December 7th 2012

      The more you practice, the better you’ll get. Good luck!

      Friday, December 7th 2012

I got 100 :D Thanx Guys . i’m Happey know . and nice way to explaine things .

Friday, December 7th 2012

Is there any difference between the “d” and the “th” in this, that, the, etc.

Friday, December 7th 2012

    Are you asking if we pronounce “the” like “da”? It’s a common mistake, and the proper pronunciation for all the words you listed is the hard, vibrated/voiced “th” sound. The same one you hear in “brother,” “mother,” etc.

    Friday, December 7th 2012

thanks teacher Alex … really nice and simple lesson

Friday, December 7th 2012

    No problem! I’m glad you found it useful!

    Friday, December 7th 2012

      i found it useful because you teach it very well

      please would explain to us in lesson about slang words..like :


      please teacher

      Saturday, December 8th 2012

        We have some lessons on the site about these words. Use the search function. :) I did one for “sort of” and “kind of.”

        Sunday, December 9th 2012

Thanks Alex

Friday, December 7th 2012

Could you please make a video of lock, lack, look, luck differences in pronunciation

Friday, December 7th 2012

    Why not? :) Thanks for the suggestion.

    Friday, December 7th 2012

I got 100 % …very good!!!

Friday, December 7th 2012

    Nice job!

    Friday, December 7th 2012

Thanks a lot for the lesson. I have only checked Emma’s and your Vidlessons yet: very clear both of you. I’d like, if it is possible, a lesson about the word off. The meaning is not complicate to understand but, on the contrary, the use is confusing.

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Thanks a lot for the lesson, Alex.I want to ask you about quiz. I got 100%. It’s good! But I always considered that “With” pronounce as (Z) sound.And I was confused the following:
7. Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    Alex, I also didn’t understand this part of quiz:
    7. Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?

    Plese, comment why “with” is a correct answer?

    Monday, December 10th 2012

Thanks Alex, I really like your pronunciation :)

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Thanks for the lesson. I suggest to make a video about the pronunciation of the “i”. For expample, the diference between fill, dice. I Know that the pronunciation is diferent, but I don’t know why. I think is called short and long “i”.

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    That’s more of a problem with English spelling! We do have a lesson on the difference between it/eat fill/feel.

    Sunday, December 9th 2012


      Wednesday, October 23rd 2013

10/10 Thank You. Nice lesson.

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Excellent Practice of this small part of IPA’s.
that was a very fun and interactive video :)
thumbs up for you Mr.Alex :D

Saturday, December 8th 2012

thanks alex for the great video

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Thanks a lot Alex for your excellent lessons and quizzes

Saturday, December 8th 2012

thank you Alex, first for your great lessons and also for responding to comments :D

Saturday, December 8th 2012

first of all I wanna say ..thank you so much for the lesson
then I’m a little confused between these two words
why does the first pronounce like ” 8″
and the second pronounce like “9”
are they just one word and have the same meaning ?
and how I pronouce the word “suggestion”
many thanks in advance
is …’sug’ ‘Jestion’?

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    No they aren’t.
    breath — this is a noun
    breathe — this is a verb

    So, you can say: “You have to breathe.”, “Take a deep breath.”

    As to “suggestion” — /səɡˈdʒɛstʃən/ — many non native speakers do not pronounce both “g”.

    Saturday, December 8th 2012

      thank you so Much dear brither for help.
      And I also wanna thank dear teacher alex many thanks .may allah bless you .

      Sunday, December 9th 2012

    “Breathe” is a verb. “You need to breathe to live.”

    “Breath” is a noun. “I took a breath before starting my presentation.”

    Suggestion is pronounced “suh-jestion.” The double g is pronounced as a single sound.

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

please this word too
th as the
or as three
thank you very very Much dear teacher
may allah bles you

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    “Bother” is TH as in “the.” Same with brother, mother, and father.

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

what the diferent (in meaning) between= breath and breathe??????????

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    “Breath” is a noun, “breathe” is a verb.

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

Thank you Alex.10 out of 10.

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Thanks a lot teacher.You are a very good teacher.

Saturday, December 8th 2012


Saturday, December 8th 2012

Hi Alex,
I have 2 questions about the pronunciation of TH. When I’m watching series or listening to musics,often I hear words like “thin”,”think” and “thank you” being pronouced with a sound of “t” and words like “this”, “that”, and “although” I hear a sound of “d”.
Why this happen? Is wrong or just a matter of accent?
Bye for now!

Saturday, December 8th 2012

I got eight out of ten.

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Thanks alex for this lesson.it’s really usefull. you are a very good teacher.

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Not only these sounds are funny, but also very difficult for Brazilian students since we don’t have them in our language.

Saturday, December 8th 2012

It needed lots and lots of exercises, why is it so hard! Thanks Alex teatcher!

Saturday, December 8th 2012

Please describe the difference between ( three and tree sound).

Saturday, December 8th 2012

That is the phonetic symbol, not phonemic and that is the Phonetic Alphabet, not Phonemic! On other note, you are a great teacher! Could you also talk about the vowel in words like ‘cat’ and ‘pan’? It is difficult for foreigners, I think!

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    I found this:

    “phonetic” is a branch of linguistics that comprises the study of the sounds of human life

    “phonemic” comprises the study of the sound system of a given language and is concerned with grammatical characterization of this system of the sound.

    So, “phonemic” has to do with function, and phonetic with the form.”

    So, it could be synonyms but slightly different. This sentence is form the eng wiki:

    IPA is “used for phonetic and phonemic transcription of any language”

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

    As mentioned, many pronunciation books use the terms interchangeably. I learned it as “phonemic” since a phoneme is the smallest unit of sound that we use to generate meaning.

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

Thank Alex!I hope you’ll help me when i study English on this Web.I’m from in Viet Nam….You can repair some error in my comment.when i wrong OK? ^^

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    “I’m from Viet Nam. You can fix my errors when I’m wrong, okay?” :)

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

Very interesting video!

Saturday, December 8th 2012

    Me again! I have just created my account! First of all, I would like to thank all the engVid teachers who have spared no efforts to make this website function they way it does. Besides that, lots of people have benefited from your free lessons. I will be absorbing as much info as I can. Changing the suject – I remember when I started learning these two sounds 7 years ago. It was very funny and I struggled to pronounce them at first, but then they began to become more natural and simpler as I practiced them in front of the mirror and with my teacher.

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

      Mirror practice can be very useful! Don’t be afraid to look foolish in the beginning.

      Sunday, December 9th 2012

I want to know: how to read the word “sixth”?
both “s” and “θ” will be read?

Sunday, December 9th 2012

Hi Alex !
As far as I know the TH sounds as the one in three when it comes before a consonant or at the end of a word. But when it comes before a vowel I have no rule for that. Do you have a rule? THAN YOU IN ADVANCE.

Sunday, December 9th 2012

    Sadly, there is no absolutely consistent rule. Look at these examples:

    Thee (hard TH)
    Theme (soft TH)

    Both are followed by the same vowel sound but have different pronunciations.

    Teeth (soft TH)
    Teethe (hard TH)

    Both have the same vowel sound before, but different TH pronunciations after.

    Now that I think about it, I can’t think of a single word that has a soft TH sound when the word ends in “er.”


    So that’s one rule you can likely apply.

    Sunday, December 9th 2012

      Hi Alex ! this is Atef again ,
      The single word that you are thinking of is PANTHER the TH sounds soft as in three.

      Sunday, December 9th 2012

        Yeah, I realized that as soon as I posted the comment. :p Thanks!

        Monday, December 10th 2012

thanks Alex, its very usefull!

Sunday, December 9th 2012

What about questions № 7 ? In oral practice my teacher and all my friend pronounce TH (in with) sound like the. hm..

Sunday, December 9th 2012

    As mentioned above, I pronounce it both ways and have heard it pronounced both ways.

    Monday, December 10th 2012

Thanks Alex, I love this lesson.

Sunday, December 9th 2012

Where have you taught in Canada? (besides engVid)? All teachers are from Canada, my teacher?

Sunday, December 9th 2012

    Yes, we are based in Canada.

    Thursday, December 13th 2012

Thank you Alex. Very useful. Although my English listening skill is very low,
I can understand almost all you say. I like your lessons and
I think you are a very good teacher.

Sunday, December 9th 2012

hello, My name is Moussaab, and I have an English learning page on facebook where I share your content.
what I would like to say, is to suggest to you to be one of my administrators on that page and share all your content at the same time of yours.

Sunday, December 9th 2012

    I’m sorry, but that would not be possible. We already have our own Facebook page where we upload content.

    Monday, December 10th 2012

      what i mean is to share the content of your facebook page on mine too , that would give you twice oppotunity to have audience :)

      Monday, December 10th 2012

My first lesson here) and first 10 of 10!) Thank you, Alex! I was looking for such site and now I`m here and I already love it!

Sunday, December 9th 2012

These pronunciations are the greatest things to do for me I’ll succueed the day when “les poules auront des dents !”( When pigs can fly) ! Kind regards

Sunday, December 9th 2012

This is great but you might want to consider the movement of your tongue, which you do perfectly.

When you make either \th\ sounds, your tongue goes out between your teeth and you pull it in.

This would help your foreign students.

Monday, December 10th 2012

Very useful lesson! Thank You very much, Alex!

Monday, December 10th 2012

these pronuciations are very dificult to me speak. I’m brazilian. My goal is speak and listen english fluently.

Monday, December 10th 2012

    yes I have the same problem. i’ll succeed the day where “pigs fly” in French “when hen will have teeth” ! In fact I have a slghtly lisp anyhow my wife is native engish speaker and when I pronounce these words. She laughs and say that is very sweet so don’t worry about that. Englsh speakers like this way to speak

    Monday, December 10th 2012

hi, Alex. we forgive you for that mistake at the black board (kidding). i like your classes so much. thank you. in this lesson, i could solve my questions about the pronunciation of the article “the”. you pronounced it really clearly, so now i know how to pronounce it. thank you very much.

Tuesday, December 11th 2012

Thank you for your lesson it was very interesting
i got 9 on the quiz
by the way i am a new member and i have a ver bad english
in schoo”l all my friends get mock”
hope that i will have a better english
thk you again <3

Tuesday, December 11th 2012

Thanks teacher Alex … really nice and simple lesson

Tuesday, December 11th 2012

Amazing Lesson teacher, Thanks!

The “TH” sound really makes the difference!You look much more fluent if you pronounce it correctly!

Tuesday, December 11th 2012

thanks Alex

Wednesday, December 12th 2012

excuse me Mr Alex but I modestly think that the word ‘with” is pronounced as “the” sound. and that’s why I got 90 out of 100.

Wednesday, December 12th 2012

    No worries. I’ve heard it pronounced both ways, but I personally use the soft TH pronunciation. If you use the hard TH pronunciation, that’s alright too.

    Thursday, December 13th 2012

thank alex for your concern.however we need a lesson on both all consernant and vowel sound

Wednesday, December 12th 2012

    Sounds like a great idea for a long future lesson!

    Thursday, December 13th 2012

Professional instructor and great lesson , that’s pretty awesome Mr . Alex i hope you always present lessons who are like that because they’re many buddy have problem in pronunciation thx alot :)

Wednesday, December 12th 2012

Very good, thanks!

Thursday, December 13th 2012

when i took the quiz
this Q
Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?

and they said that the answer is with who come?

Thursday, December 13th 2012

    As mentioned above, “with” is pronounced both ways by native speakers. Most Canadians I know use the soft TH pronunciation for it, so perhaps it’s typical pronunciation in my area!

    Thursday, December 13th 2012

it’s diffcult to learn for me. i am not a english location. thx for chance to watch

Thursday, December 13th 2012

I always found how hard it is to teach The IPA for my private students. I found a very easy way to teach now my Brazilian students everything you teach on proninciation and Grammar. This is my first time acessing this wonderful electronic address and now I am sure that I can count on yr experience to make my classes clearer, shorter and more practical. Thank you very much for all yr effrts!!

Hi Alex
I have a question for you. I remember I was in Walmart the other month and I asked a staff to help me to find a non alcoholic beer and I used “without alcohol” with “TH” sound as “three” BUT he couldn’t understand me. However I gave it a shot and used “T” sound rather than “TH” sound he said OK now I know you are looking for beer “witout!!!! alcohol”. So I’m confused really :(
Thanks Alex for your great class as always.

Saturday, February 16th 2013

I learned ‘with’ is pronounced in two ways, soft ‘TH’ and hard ‘TH’.
When I go to Canada next time, I listen to how Canadians pronounce ‘with’ carefully.
It is very curious for me.

Sunday, March 31st 2013


Monday, April 1st 2013

I think It´s very important the pronunciation. I´m practising much time. It´s a good exercise.
Thanks Alex

Hi, I’m really confused about question 7. Why the answer is (with)? could you explain,please?

Wednesday, April 17th 2013

Thanks Alex…

Wednesday, April 24th 2013

If you know phonemic simbols you can pronounce any word by finding them in a dictionary, but if you find a word you don’t know and you don’t have a dictionary with you it’s impossible to pronounce it, isn’t it?

Thursday, April 25th 2013

thank you very very Much dear teacher

Saturday, April 27th 2013

Alex, hi!

    YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS ONE STARTS WITH “TH” AND THE OTHER WITH “T”! ALSO TRY turning off caps lock because it makes it sounds like you’re shouting :P

Hi Alex! I have a problem pronouncing letter “L” in some words, depending on it position in a word. Sometimes it sounds like “V”. It was found a long ago by my teacher who recorded my speech, however, I still have this problem. It often cause misunderstanding during a conversation. Alex, what do you think I can do? are you planning to have a lesson for “L” pronunciation? Thank you! Miron (mteshler@gmail.com)

It’s really a challenge for me to say words with th sounds (voiced and unvoiced) because we don’t have such sounds in our language. Thanks Alex.

Friday, February 2nd 2018

Now, I gotcha, I can easily differentiate among both sounds. Thanks to tons, Alex! – I had gotten 80, just two mistaken answers. Keep it up posting videos with that clear understandable accent.

Tuesday, May 7th 2019

Alex, thank you very much for your interesting and useful lessons! Good job! But I have a question regardlee the quiz.

Which word uses the same TH sound as “three”?

The answer which is marked by system as correct is “with”. But I’ve checked in the dictionary and found that it was \ð\ sound. In “three” we have /θriː/.


Tuesday, August 13th 2019

    That’s interesting! It seems like there are different pronunciations – in some places the “th” in “with” is /ð/ and in others /θ/. In North America (where Alex is), it is nearly always pronounced the same way as “three”.

    Tuesday, August 13th 2019

in portugueses we don´t have this sound “TH”, is very hard for our. excellent class.
