Speed up your English ×5
Posted by JayJay on 28-04-2019, 22:07 @ Video
Speed up your English ×5 by learning relaxed pronunciation. In this lesson I will teach you how to say questions with do and did in a natural, flowing way. The secret to speaking fast is that there are no clear word boundaries. Whole syllables may be missed completely (elision), individual sounds may change (assimilation), or completely new sounds may appear (intrusion). No matter whether you are a beginner learner or an advanced speaker of English, I’ll break down the pronunciation for you in the clearest possible way. I’ll also teach you a little IPA (the International Phonetic Alphabet) so that you can be sure that you are saying each question phrase perfectly as well as fast. Learn to say all the question phrase in this lesson and you will speak fast like a native speaker of English. If you want to improve your accent and speaking ability in English further, take my accent course.
