Pronunciation in American English is complicated. You need to understand and use reductions, stressed and unstressed words, linking and placement if you hope to sound natural and truly fluent. If you are fluent in English but feel that you need help with your pronunciation, or if you are having difficulty understanding the pronunciation of native speakers I’m here to help you!
This video will teach you the English pronunciation lessons I’ve gleaned from my series on the top 100 most common words in American English. Over the course of these 10 videos I have taught the precise pronunciation for every word in the top 100 most common words. If you want to improve your pronunciation I will help you do it in this video. I will show how to understand and use reductions, linking and placement to reduce your accent. You can make real progress if you not only watch these videos but also use them to train and practice with repetition.
This video is the definitive guide to the correct pronunciation of the top 100 words in English. I spend a great deal of time walking you through the difference between stressed and unstressed words. If you have a desire to sound more natural when speaking English…to sound more smooth in the way you pronounce the sounds of American English…I have created this video especially for you.
This video and this entire series is all about the real pronunciation of English words and phrases. This is likely different from the way you’ve been taught if you are not a native English speaker. But you can make progress and improve your pronunciation and there’s not better place to start than the most commonly used words. I know the way to help you train and this video lays out all of my knowledge for you.
