#035 English Words that you’re Mispronouncing

Listen to a new episode of Speak English Now Podcast, your favorite material for practicing your spoken and heard English. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to improve your English more effectively.

Transcript:

Hi everyone! I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.

TODAY:

  • I’ll focus on the pronunciation of some words which my students often mispronounce.
  • Later, you’ll practice these words with questions and answers mini-story.

As I just said, I’ve decided to share with you some of the words which my students often mispronounce. I’ll start by telling you the correct pronunciation, and then I’ll use this word in a sentence. I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed, but when you say a word individually, the pronunciation may sound a little different from when it’s in a sentence.

Audio

We pronounce this word like this: aw-dee-oh
I’ve noticed that Spanish speakers pronounce it just the way it’s spelled, but that’s incorrect.
Again, this is the right way to pronounce it: aw-dee-oh

Example:
“Every week, there’s a new Speak English Now Podcast audio lesson.”

Busy

This word isn’t particularly difficult to pronounce, but I guess that some people tend to get confused by the way it’s written. We pronounce this word: Busy biz-ee

Example:
“I was in the mood to go swimming this afternoon, but I had a really busy day.”

 Chocolate

In the US people pronounce it like this: chaw-kuh-lit, and in British it’s only two syllables: chawk-lit

Example:
“James enjoys drinking his coffee with a dark chocolate tablet.”

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.

“Thanks to Georgiana, I have lost my fear of speaking English. I have eliminated my frustration and started to enjoy this language.” Miriam

“I did not study English when I was a child. I contacted Georgiana at a time when I felt blocked. She has helped me to lose my fear of speaking English.” Ana
