tayeb

I live in Thailand,my English is quite bad.I can not speak ” The..+++_ture+++_ture+++_ture” too fast…Emma!

oldman18

    Thank you for watching the video.

    With practice, tongue twisters become easier. I suggest practicing the words carefully, and then working up to saying them quickly.

    I remember when I was learning French, I had such a difficult time speaking, especially pronunciation. I found reading to be a lot easier.

    Everyday I would look in the mirror and practice specific sounds. It took some time before I started to feel I was getting better.

    I’m sure you are improving! Keep practicing and be patient with yourself. :)

    Emma

      (sorry.. if my grammar or my word maybe wrong).
      I was learning English by myself a year ago. And now I think it better!
      but it not enough to have some conversation with some one.
      I’m still not confident to write and speak!
      You give me hope to speak English very well..Emma.Thank you very much.

      oldman18

Thank you so much really this video was helpful.

Hi Emma you are a great teacher in the world

Nooran shah(pakistan

Thank you Emma for the nice lesson.

I have problem when I pronounce the vowel
e i o u
I live in algeria we can speak any language .speak Arabic and Tamazight is our mother tongue she had every letter

debaghi

Thank you Emma for the nice lesson.
so much really this video .
I have problem when I pronounce the vowel
e i o u
I live in algeria we can speak any language .speak Arabic and Tamazight is our mother tongue she had every letter

debaghi

Thank you Emma
speak fluent Arabic
people save but it is not my mother tongue
why. I do not know
I always speak accent defferante
they told me that I can not speak English as a amiricain

debaghi

    Hi Debaghi,

    Students often want to sound American or English when they speak English. It’s very difficult to do this if you haven’t grown up in these countries.

    It’s okay to have a different accent as long as people understand you. I tell my students to be proud of their accent. When I speak French, it’s clear that I am not French. As long as people understand me, having an accent is fine.

    Emma

      u r right!!

      ala1

Thank you so much Emma, excellent work.

clalonu

Thank you so much, it looks like almost easy now!

Mélodie

Hi Emma, thanks for the lesson, but I confused with sound of “t” and “d”. As when you say “literature” it’s like “liderature”, could you make video lesson for it? Please give your respon :)

Charlie

    I’m glad you noticed that Charlie. Often, the letter t is pronounced like a d. For example, when you count, the ty at the end of twenty, thirty, forty, etc, is pronounced like a dy.

    This is a good video topic. Thank you for the suggestion!

    Emma

      Hi there, Let me tell u one thing, when t comes between two vowels, it becomes d, like better pronounces as bedder and water pronounces as wader, that’s what I have learned from Internet, still working on the accent.

      Vamdev Mishra

Hi madae Emma. just a request .could you make a course about the english phonetic alphabet.Thank you ahead

dear emma,

your teaching has been interesting me. so, i have became more understanding for using “TU..”

thx.

zaza

thanks emma your method in english learning very excellent

youssefahmed

Hi Emma! I’d just like to ask you if is it a wrong impression, or if people use only the sound /ʃ/ for words such as “picture”, “lecture” and “structure” for example. I usually tend to say them /’pɪkʃər/, /’lekʃər/ and /’strʌkʃər/ (all with /ʃ/ instead of /tʃ/). What do you think? And also, very good job teaching. Your videos are awesome!

chriszmr

emma,,you are very good teacher..

Hi Emma
Would you mind standing a little bit far from the whiteboard when teaching. Often I have to do backward or forward to find a moment that you are not in front of the word and I can see the word clearly and pronounce it.
Thanks for your great lecture :)

ralizadeh

THANKS TEACHER EMMA!!

gina

Is this site contain all pronunciation rules for British English ?

rawdaa

    nəʊ, ˈɪt wəd ˈsiːm. nən ət ˈɔ:l.

    Adam Bird

Just a point to note here. It’s an important point too. ‘ɪ’ is used in it, sit, kit, fit, and pit for example. ɪ: is the phonetic symbol and addition for the ‘ee’ or ‘y’ in the middle or at the end of a word (there is no variation on this either in American or British English). In ‘century’ it is the latter sound (ɪ:) and phonetic symbol not the former. The correct symbol is and how it is written is thus: sentʃərɪː and not sentʃərɪ. Let’s help make English understandable for all.

Adam Bird

It should be noted and included there are allocations for British English and a teacher should not disregard it or brush over it. It has been pronounced this way in the British Isles since before your founding fathers. A little respect would not go amiss. The proper IPA for these words is at the end here. Casting aside England’s English makes it harder for EFL learners and a pain when it comes to teaching. Here are your corrections: tube=tʃuːb and likewise for tutor=tʃuːtə. tu:b is incorrect as is tu:də using your pronunciation is also incorrect, Miss.

Adam Bird

    Thank you for the IPA! But we mostly focus on North American English here, being based in Canada.

alagosm

Thanks
I hope it helps me improve my pronunciation
English’s pronunciation is very difficult.
Especially when people from various countries get together, listening is hard as people speak with their own accent.
So, we have to try to develop speaking ability…
