A Very interesting lesson for whoever is trying to pronounce a good accent and speak correctly during his conversations or talks. I have been surprised by the different manners of how to speak and sound in English but I think that I will follow to the enquiry in this topic more than before. Thanks a lot, teacher Jade, it’s a pleasure to learn English with you although I have to do an effort to listen and identify the words with your accent.
