Great lesson! Thank you so much for these helpful pointers! After saying v and w along with you (great lip-workout btw.), even my husband could finally hear a difference :)

Friday, September 6th 2013

Friday, September 6th 2013

welcome back miss ronnie, it was useful lesson,
can i have your skype i have a couple questions, if you not mind

thanks,have good day ^_^

Friday, September 6th 2013

Dear Ronnie, First of all I do adore your videos here on Engvid. Honestly, I am an ESL teacher in Jakarta and I use some of your ideas in my classes on certain topics. Thank you so much.
About this video, I still don’t get it why people make a difference with the V and W. I’ve seen “some” countries in the world and in all of them there is a clearly difference between the V and W when they speak English. The only problem I find is when i ask my students to spell the word vacuum. Most of them say V-A-C-double U-M…
Please keep making these wonderful videos :)

Friday, September 6th 2013

    I can’t tell you anything about other languages but in my language (I’m Hungarian, by the way)there is no difference in pronunciation of the V and W. The difference is just in the written language. So same pronunciation but different spelling. But this video finally clarified it to me. Thanks for the video, I mean many,many,many thanks.

    Sunday, October 13th 2013

      I think that’s way people get confused. (I forgot to write this down.)

      Sunday, October 13th 2013

    I like too.

    Sunday, November 24th 2013

Dear Ronnie wonderful videos :

Friday, September 6th 2013

Hi Ronnie,
Thank you. But please use “Persian” instead of “Farsi”. Farsi is a word for Arabic language people who can’t spell “P”.

Friday, September 6th 2013

Thank you Ronnie~~
I clearly understand my lip position between V and W.

Friday, September 6th 2013

Thank you mam Ronnie for your all fantastic lessons.they are very useful. would you please answer my one question. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!






Saturday, September 7th 2013

    We say ‘How do you do?’ when a third person is being introduced to you. Whether you shake hands with this third person your response should be as well ‘How do you do?’ but just with another intonation

    Saturday, September 7th 2013

Nice to meet you, Ronnie. Finally I could sign in.
I like your teaching. V and F are difficult for me.
F’s pronunciation is same with V, isn’t it?
This video is useful. Thank you :)

Saturday, September 7th 2013

Yes, we’d like to have more videos with you :D

Saturday, September 7th 2013

Well done, Ms.Ronnie. I had some problem with this pronunciation before, but I know how to use “KISS” action to identify those pronunciations now. Thanks

Friday, December 20th 2013

Ronnie, what’s the other thing that grows if you give a kiss?? hehehe!!!

Monday, December 30th 2013

Hello,Firstly,Thank you very much,Ronnie,I am a english beginner , I have a confusion about ‘groove’ .The word groove as you said means ‘dance’, but in the dictionary of our country it means ‘cannelure’.they are very different from each could you explain it.Thanks again.

Monday, December 30th 2013

    Okay, so “groove” has several meanings! In slang, it means “dance”. But “groove” (noun) is also the word for a long, narrow dent — like on a vinyl record or a cut in a piece of wood. “Cannelure” is a technical term for the groove around a bullet, and it’s unlikely to be used by anyone who doesn’t know a lot about guns!

    Monday, December 30th 2013

*-* thanks. We Brazilians don’t have this problem I think haha. You are a great teacher.

Tuesday, January 7th 2014

Hi, Ronnie! Thanks for your lessons! :)
Now I’m living in Canada- Alberta. I regret that I’m not living in Toronto:( do you have English courses in Toronto or May be in other cities?
Also I have problem with my pronunciation, can you recommend book, or courses? It’s a really big problem for me. I see word, I know its meaning , but I can’t tell it because I know that I tell word with mistake:(

Wednesday, January 8th 2014

how about the “V” and “three” ?
I don’t know why the people don’t understand me when I saying “V”.

Friday, January 10th 2014

Hi, I’m from Poland. I don’t think that Polish people find V and W pronunciation difficult. It is pretty clear for us :)

Monday, January 13th 2014


Saturday, January 18th 2014

Italian guys has the same sound with: UO-mo, UO-vo = “W”

Wednesday, January 22nd 2014

Ronnie, you are so funny.
Thanks for your class

Sunday, January 26th 2014

First I’ve find out that these sounds are a problem for me, when I tried to say “vowel”. That was tricky) Thanks, Ronnie, for your amazing lessons and especially for this one)

Tuesday, January 28th 2014

thank you for the lesson,spanish is my native language, so it is not hard to me see the differences between v and w :)

Monday, February 24th 2014

thank you. i like your character very much.

Wednesday, March 5th 2014

Ronnie’s lesson is lovely

Friday, March 7th 2014

very funny lesson haha. Thank you very much <3

Wednesday, March 12th 2014

Interesting lesson, Ronnie. It’s a good example of your concern with students from different countries and cultures. For brazilians – portuguese speaking people – there is no problem with V and W pronunciation. For us it’s more problematic the pronunciation of words ending in -ed, topic that was already (well) explained by your colleague Adam in a specific lesson. Many thanks to EngVid Team!

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

Thank you for lesson.
