The pronunciation of English words is notoriously challenging. You can learn English with this video and get detailed pronunciation guidance for the 10 most common English words. This video is the first in a series that will teach you the pronunciation of the 100 most common English words.
As you learn English (American English) your exact pronunciation of English words is what determines how much you will sound like a native speaker. Many teachers do an injustice to pronunciation training by slowing down their pronunciation of English words. Teachers do this reflexively. Their aim is to help you learn English more quickly by slowing down their pronunciation in their training materials. They have the best of intentions as they slow down their pronunciation so that you can learn how English words sound.
But American English is not spoken that way. If you want to learn American English pronunciation, it’s not just about the English words themselves. You need to hear and understand the pronunciation of native American English speakers and attempt to learn English not in a slow, methodical way, but rather in the manner that American English speakers themselves have learned pronunciation (i.e. Your pronunciation of English words needs to incorporate frequent reductions, contractions and the unique vocal placement of American English).
This video (and the entire Rachel’s English collection) is devoted to helping you learn English pronunciation. I’ve been devoted to helping you improve your pronunciation for years! I’m not new to this. My passion is helping you improve your American English Pronunciation and this video starts at the top: teaching you the exact pronunciation of the top 10 most common English words!
