Jade, Thx a million! Could you pls make a lesson on sentence stress as well? Greetings!

ulaka

    This is a great subject for a video because rhythm really is the most important thing to get a clear accent when speaking English.

    Jade

      Thank you very much Mrs Jade ,it was so useful.After doing quiz I had recognized that I remember this rules for a long time.I got 9 right .Thank you again))

        Hi Jade, interesting topic for a video lesson.

        Rhythm and intonation are difficult aspects of language to master, no doubt about it-especially in foreign language learning contexts where you do not use the language for survival purposes.
        It is the use of language that makes the difference.

        Sounding like an English native speaker? It takes hard work. I think the heart of the matter is communication.

        Thanks for this video-lesson Jade.

        Regards

        Regino

      Hey Jade..thanks for the lesson..that was great..I have a question..you said…”Stay tuned and I will see what I can do. :D”……What if I say….”Stay tuned and I will see what can I do. :D”….Ia that wrong…Thanks in advance..:):)

Great!!

Antonio Roberto Neves

I didn’t understand the exceptions
the stress is the same in verbs and nouns . but where is the stress in the first syllable or in the second ?
and thanks ^_^

perkygirl

    The exceptions just sound the same for both the verb and noun. So you just say the word the same way you hear me say it.

    Jade

      yeah Mrs Jade I’m happy for listening

      Mahmoud El Safy

I like her lessons, even better, I like all the Teacher on EngVid, but sometimes I can’t comprehend her speaking at all. I think this occurs for the fact of she being from England, and I’ve gotten accustomed myself at watching lessons led by Americans, but I make sure that by listening to her carefully I’m gonna be able to understand at least 90 per cent of the stuff that she speaks out during her lessons, after all, she takes after a good teacher!!!

Mateus Borges

    You just need to hear me talk for a while by watching my videos. Often Brazilian students find me difficult to understand at first because you are more used to American accents. You will understand after a couple of videos.

    Jade

      No-native speakers have NOT any accent. This is a fact.
      (Unless you start to hear English when you are in your mother belly.)
      We sound like no native, no matter how well we speak.
      But I prefer British way of speaking. English was born in England.
      It’s the same thing in Spanish. Spanish was born in Spain. But in the other Spanish speaker countries people believe they speak THE GENUINE Spanish. In addition only in Spain we speak Galego, Euskera and Catalan.

      aroibas

      Hi Jade I just wanna know that from which video shall I start learning as there are different teachers which teaches different stuff just wanna know from which teacher and from which video to kick off from ?

      Shrezor

    Hi Mateus, …so you are accustom yourself TO American English?
    I think we have to get used to different accents and one way to do it is . . . Yeah… you’re right. . . to listen to the video carefully and on several occasions.

    Regards

    Regino

Interesting! Thank you, Jade :D

Thx jade, :)

Sharina koles

I liked this lesson very much. Thank you teacher

omargut

Thanks, Jade! Nice lesson!

Janilza

Thanks Prof. Jade. I got the point that you wanted to explaine about!Very great!I really understood that pronunciation is absolutely important for English!! Yeah I am very happy now.

madesuma

    Pronunciation is important otherwise you can’t be understood!

    Jade

I cannot understand this lesson that what happen in the lesson but I gave answers by estimate and got 40%.

Abdul Qayum

Thnak you.

Pong

Thx Jade! this lesson makes me correct my pronunciation of some words, sound more naturally.

steven ji

I corrected 90 % in this test. But I still don’t understand “polishing”. Why this word’s syllable is first ? Is it verb or adjective? If “polishing” is verb, It must stress at second syllable. isn’t it?

madesuma

    Me too. 90%. I think “polishing” is verb. Why not?

    Dmitry

    There is a mistake in that one. There are different vowels. The stress is in the first syllable. The words are still homographs – same spelling but different sound.

    Jade

      Hi, Jude! I’m sorry, I did not understand your comment. where the stress should be, at the end :)? Diring the lesson you said and showed the verb ‘polish’ has second syllable under stress. So, in the sentence ‘I’m poloshing my table’ the world ‘poloshing’ is verb. what the suyllable shoukd be under stress? in this case? I think second, but the system said I’m incorrect. And the my result is 90% :)

      Taliya

      Hi Jade,
      Thanks for a nice lesson i scored 90 :(
      I too didn’t get why the stress is to be made in the syllable.can u please explain it clearly once again?

      Rhea

thanks for you and I hope from you to give us more lessons because your accent very clear for me

qayes

Many thanks

khalidse10

very nice lesson

yzab

I have learnt that ‘travel’ is an uncountable word so the second part of video confuses me a little bit.

neskiaes

    We say someone’s travels when we talk about about the places / countries they have been.
    E.g. Where did Sarah go on her travels?

    Jade

Teacher looks great! :)

iloveooz

Thank you Jade. It was very interesting lesson. I didn’t know that before until today. I got 9 good answers out of ten.

Please, Jade. Tell me what is the different between practise and practice? If you look at the boad, you see two different ones, s and c.
Thank you again :-)

koubalondon

    Hi Koubalondon,

    As far as I know, both words have the same meaning. The difference is that… practice[AmE] and practise[BrE].

    AmE=American English BrE=British English

    Regards

    Regino

    In British English ‘practise’ is the verb. That means to do something. Like, I practise English every day.

    Then, ‘practice’ is the noun. It is a formal name for an office. For example, a lawyer’s practice.

    They have different meanings and different spellings.

    Jade

      Thanks a lot for your feedback Jade. I didn’t know that.

      Thanks again.
      Have a great weekend!!!

      Regino

Very usefully. thanks Jade a lot :))

    You’re right. There are quite a few videos about intonation and pronunciation on my Jade Joddle YouTube channel. Check them out if you’d like to know more. :D

    Jade

      Oh! Yes. He/She It will do it, but in bold.
      So annoying, boring…
      Is there Internet in institutions for insane people?
      But I must admit that it’s entertaining.
      Please, don’t answer, it’s just a joke but I think you won’t get it.
      (I meant Regino.)
      By the way, miss Jade, did you know that in Santiago de Compostela, Galiza, in the nort-west of Spain(campus stelae) is there a neighbourhood called Jade since the VIII century? Well, it’s still there.
      Did you know that jade is a quite dark brilliant stone? Did you know that the best pieces of jade are in that shops? Masterpieces.
      Would you like going for a walk or going for shopping there?
      I know you’re introvert, but you can travel. Don’t miss this exciting experience.

      aroibas

Hi Jade, Thanks for this lesson. Is this applicable to all nouns, verbs and adjectives? You did not mention in examples the words with stress in first and second syllable. It was included in the quiz though.

EnglishAspirant

Thank you so much teacher Jade. It was a good lesson. mmm I have to say that I love your accent.

Thanks Jade. You are very nice.
I am sure your English accent is characteristic also for a person from the South England.

Thanks Jade. Great work.
How can I recognice the exceptions?

linus

    You just need to learn them. Listen carefully when you hear English. Notice when something sounds different to the way you expected it to sound, and then remember that difference.

    Jade

Thanks Jade. Great work.
How can I recognize the exceptions?

linus

Jade, I do and will always love EngVid and its adorable teachers.
I’m more into British accent, quite hard for sure, but I feel so excited when I understand a British news, conversation, or any speech.
I am from Morocco, and we barely receive signal from ASTRA Satelite, so I watch Sky one, two, Atlatic, or Showcase sometimes ;)

hamsterboy

    You can watch a lot of British English on YouTube.

    Jade

      True, youtube contains enough British accent videos.
      Moreover, a tip that I use when watching Sky channels, is to enable subtitles in what is known as ‘Teletext’
      :D

      hamsterboy

ok!
jade

ambreus

Thanks Jade, verry useful lesson!

Patrick

Thank you for your lesson.

bummia

Difficult but very interesting! Thanks! On the other hand your pronunciation is still difficult for me!

petitfelin

    petitfelin, don’t give up! Turn the subtitles on and try again :-) As a French you are lucky, because almost every “-sion” and “-able” word you can recognize automatically ;-)

    hiubhp

      Thanks for your encouragement!

      petitfelin

        You just get used to it after a while. If something is hard for you, you know that you’re learning.

        Jade

          Thx

          petitfelin

Hi Jade.

This lesson was great.
I have watched another English videolesson, the first one, about introverts and extroverts.

I also have a confession to make: I’m an introvert too, thus that lesson was quite useful.

I would like to request you a lesson about the development of English Language.

I’ve found a great article about the Scandinavian influences.

You can see it (PDF file) on this website – http://www.studylit.in/pluginfile.php/80/mod_resource/content/7/Scandinavian%20Influences%20on%20the%20English%20Language%20by%20Therese%20Thrnemo.pdf

Thanks and be happy English Rose!

Jade I like your accent thanks for all when will you prepare a lesson about how to organize several adjetives the appropiate rules please do it jade

jesus123

Very helpful lesson, Thank you a lot. I’m sure you will add to Engvid a lot of lessons that we need,even if they seem a little bit difficult for some people but we will realize later they are good for us because we don’t meet American speakers only. keep going . I like your answers on negative people comments of Facebook page. :)

Melkhamesy

    I am pleased that those negative people stay on Facebook and don’t come here. :))))))

    Jade

thank you my dear jade’ it is really wonderful leson

bassam mohammed

What about correct? this is an exception, isn`t it?

Rafdezcam

Thank you for the lesson, Jade. I love your accent by the way. :)

But that was a difficult lesson for me. I only got 6 out of 10. :(

As a Brazilian, it’s quite hard for me to notice those differences between stressed and unstressed syllables.

To me they sound pretty much the same on movies, music or video games.

Evaldo Mendes

    It’s very hard to understand. Some people are very good at it. For me, it is also hard to hear. Just let it stay as an idea in your mind, don’t think about it too much, and then hopefully one day you will find that you suddenly understand it!

    Jade

Excellent as ever! Jade, could you pls make a lesson about verb tenses? It’s my weak point.

zhenya25

Great lesson, love it.

waruni

Hi Jade! Great job! Your way of teaching is very professional! The examples are true-to-life and easy to remember. I adore the lesson. Thank you!

Hi jade.Thank you for the lesson.

vickaki

Hello Jade.
I have a doubt with the 5th question: I’ve selected “the second syllable”, because I understood it as a verb. But the correct option seems to be the first syllable, because “The word stress in ‘polish’ is irregular” (that’s what confuses me). Is this the correct cause? (all irregular verbs are stress in the first syllable? -like broadcast, forecast- What happens with verbs like “understand” and “become”?).
Thanks!

oteizaa

Hi Jade, thanks for the lesson. Really clear, apart from the Polish answer. I’ll have to listen to the lesson again.
Moreover I tried to listen to it again and again but your speed grew faster and faster at the end (minute . I know it’s obvious, but you said “and that’s all I’m going to talk about for now…” and then I’m not able to understand. For me It’s similar to a meaning like “Could I.. about I’ve said at all?” but I’m not able to cohomprend the words…
Thanks in advance

Strikeiron

    You can watch with subtitles if there are words you did not catch the first time. Although, realise that there are no subtitles in real life and you will not always understand everything.

    Jade

      Hi, thanks. I hope there wasn’t a misunderstanding. I didn’t pretend to comprehend everything! Only I tried to listen to your lesson and it was a little challenge to me understanding meanwhile your spoken language grew faster and faster in speed in the last part. Sorry.
      I know I am not able to comprehend every words, for now understanding the general meaning is the best I can do. I went to Dublin to the Little museum and the guide was in a hurry… I couldn’t understand ANYTHING except “I’ve finished… have a nice day”. I felt really sad, then.

      Strikeiron

Hi Jade, thanks for the lesson. Really clear, apart from the Polish answer. I’ll have to listen to the lesson again.
Moreover I tried to listen to it again and again but your speed grew faster and faster at the end (minute 8). I know it’s obvious, but you said “and that’s all I’m going to talk about for now…” and then I’m not able to understand. For me It’s similar to a meaning like “Could I.. about I’ve said at all?” but I’m not able to comprehend the words…
Thanks in advance
(sorry for the double)

Strikeiron

Excellent! How Can I learn more tips about Word Stressing? Are there any other secret tips you have to share with us related to this topic?

david77diaz

    Wait a while and I’ll see what I can do on my personal channel Jade Joddle on YouTube.

    Jade

      Ok! Perfect! Thanks a lot Jade! God bless you!

      david77diaz

I LOVE YOUR ACCENT AND YOUR LOOK ALSO ..

dentash sudan

For me, the pronunciation and the word stress are the most difficult part of English language. It seems to me that there are no rules or too many exceptions, so that you have to learn every word with it’s pronunciation.(In French for example I think the rules are clearer)This annoyed me first but then I accepted the fact.
Thank you for the lesson!

arinamg

    The rule you need to know is de dum de dum de dum de dum de dum – that this is the rhythm of English we like!

    Jade

      Nice on… BTW Just think that the schwa sounds much alike the liason in french … Okay I’ll be back tomorrow for the next profitable lesson. Nite.

      apdmont@gmail.com

        Nice one, that was a typo!

        apdmont@gmail.com

According to my opinion you have to get familiar with spoken language and to get this real you’ll have to listen to an huge quantity of dialogues… everyday!

Strikeiron

Where is the word stress in the word ‘polishing’?
I am polishing the table.

the first syllable
the second syllable

POLISHING IS A VERB …. So why should stress on the FIRST and not the SECond syllable
THanks

zizo1

    The stress on polishing the table is in the first syllable.

    Jade

      Jade, but why the stress is in the first syllable? Which the rule you apply?

Jade, you were excellent especially with the British accent you’ve got. But, I wanna make a suggestion(how about setting up an English club to talk about different issues?)as you know by this way, we’ll learn much better because we’ll gain many phrases we might use to improve the fluency. Please try to present this suggestion with the excellent teachers you work with. Thanks again.

Thao Vo

I got 9, it’s a good grade!!!!!But I’ve missed the 5th question. I think I didn’t understand the meaning of polish in the sentence. Could you explain to me???Great class, congrats!!!

Marcel

    Polishing here means “lustrando/polindo” in Portuguese.

    Sally S

      I didn’t understand the rule she applied here to stress the first syllable, because she said we should stress the first syllable in verbs…

That’s good.

Ali Tuohidi

thank you very much.

Ali Tuohidi

How strange…

In the video the teacher said and showed that the sress in the verb “polish” is on the second syllable.

After getting a question about a confusing answer in №5 the teacher wrote:
“There is a mistake in that one. There are different vowels. The stress is in the first syllable. The words are still homographs – same spelling but different sound.”

So, she said “different sound” ( which means different sress) and in the same time she said the verb ” polishing” has the stress on the first syllable as a noun “Polish” has.

Why then different sound? The same sound.
I understood nothing. (

(d’ja) ??
how we can pronounce this ??

Xbrahim

thanks

mohamed170

I can’t actually understand why the word ‘polish’ is in this lesson. As I see it, the difference between ‘polish’ as a verb meaning ‘to clean’ and Polish as an adjective ‘of Poland’ is not in the stress (it’s on the first syllable in both cases) but in the prononciation of the first syllable: in the first case it sounds as a closed syllable and in the second it’s open. So I don’t think it’s correct to use this as an example for this lesson, it causes confusion.

Cyprida

Thank you Jade, and I love your accent.

tattoochilli

thanks alot

Mondim

I immigranted from Poland. Currently live in Canada and work in Detroit so I have contact with two pronunciations American and Canadian. Therefore many times I am confused how to correctly pronounce a word. Sometimes I unconssiously adjust my words to the way the person I am talking to. That causes that often I am not sure what is the correct word or how to pronounce it. Your lesson and in particular rules you gave us are very useful. I greatly appriciate all of your lessons.

chelst

Great and very very useful.
Thank you so much

P SRIDHAR

Thanks Jade, I’m sure those will be grate to me in future, practicing every day will make me speak better, I’ll not stop watching your lessens until I can speak like a British native speaker, Love you so much and all Engvid’s teachers….

Mohammed Shkur

BTW, i need to ask you a question about different subject rather this this ‘stress’ subject.
my question is that can i use gerund or ing-verb as an adverb by adding the ‘ly’ in the end of any gerund verb, can’t i?

sohail.the.king

Thank you very much for your useful lesson, Mrs Jade!I’ve noticed that the difference between “polish” and “Polish” was misunderstood by many learners. So I’d like to give some explanations regarding this issue. Both these words actually have the stress in the first syllable and the same spelling, however they have different transcriptions. The letter “o” is reproduced as different sounds: [o] – in the verb “polish” and [eo] – in an adjective “Polish”. It can be checked in the dictionary as well. So these words have the same spelling but two different sounds. Mrs Jade said by mistake that the stress in the verb “polish” was in the second syllable.

Kuzenish

Thank you Jade. I love your lesson.

Hi Jade.first of all i’d like to say thank you for all the effort you have done for us.And I NEED AN ADVICE FROM YOU.I need you to guide me how to start learn English.I am good at listening ,i have never take any courses or studies on English at all .

Hi Jade. Nice to hear from you. I love your style of classes, beyond your cute face.

I am polishing the table. ‘polishing’ here is used as verb, however stress is on the first syllable. Is this also an exception?

Excellent! You’re actually my preferred teacher without any doubt! Even if you’re an excellent teacher, during your lectures you look so normal, so nice. .. very good.. You makes enjoyable a thing like grammar!

Marcello60

Ah! One more thing. … Why not a lesson to explain the -ing form in cases like: “I go to swim” or “I go swimming”? This example is an easy one, but there are a lot of situations where the choice isn’t so clear. . What do you think about?

Marcello60

10/10 Thanks,Jade!

The word stress, it´s really difficult for me!!

Hey jade, I was watching your vid of how to make a word stress that is of importance to be understood by listener. And I truly understood what you were teaching on the video. Personally I think I understood it in that I was in leeds, UK for ten years. You are a very brilliant and illustrious teacher. I totally love British English accents, with that, I came to here for trying to learn it’s accent. Word stress to prounce, it is very careful to listen. Hopefully, there will be a lot of people who want to learn English accents!!

please and thanks.

Nickolas Nembhard

thank you , you are the best

dimalino

thank you.

CaoNgoc

Very useful…thanks.

DonSalah

Thanks Jade. I have a question: I don’t understand the difference you point out at the beginning: ‘polish’ and ‘Polish’ do not differ because of the word stress, they are spelled as
/ˈpɒl.ɪʃ/ and /ˈpəʊ.lɪʃ/ in BE (Cambridge Dictionary). The spelling difference is in the diphtong /əʊ/ of the adjective Polish.

Thank you. Very useful lesson

mimand

Thank you so much!

Mirealona

Dear Mrs Jade
Thank you for this very interesting lesson
I totally agree with you in that pronunciation is probably, the most important part of speaking English

Pygmalion

Could I see: I love you. I love your British accent since it is my first time listening the real British English accent. I have been studying English for many years, however no progress happened especially in spoken English. After watching your Vedio, I have to think about the way to study my English. As you know, A lot of Chinese teachers are teaching us in wrong ways and wrong pronunciations. So I am thirty-three now. Hope I can speak as a native speaker after studying in your ways…Thank you very much!!!!!!

Thank you Jade, I think being able to notice the stress on a word requires a lot of listening.
Very interesting lesson, as usual.

The word stress in usually on the first syllable in an adjective. The same with a noun.

DetCMA

Esraa gad

In the last example the verb “record” must’ve been in the infinitive form plus the preposition “to” not with the article “a” – We have TO RECORD all… I think whether I’m right or not?

Alexhawk

This is an interesting video. Thank you Jade.

Bhramarambika

joseagustin3500

yulongshan

I HAVE TO WORK ON IT HARDER BECAUSE I GUESS I HAVE TO HANDLE THE GRAMMAR MUCH BETTER, I THOUGH I WAS GOING TO FILL THE FORM OUT SUCCESSFULLY IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE.
THE INTONATION IN ENGLISH IS A MATTER TOIC THAT WE HAVE TO WORK DAILY BECAUSE MOST OF THE GUYS WHP STUDY HERE WE ARE NOT FORM SPOKEN NATIVE LANGUAGE WE HAVE BEING GETTED IN TOUCH WITH THE LANGUAGE.

Luis Alberto Mateo

this lesson has been one of the hardest that I have found from your chart….. but very useful one. Thanks.
