10 More Commonly Mispronounced Words in English by Foreign Learners


I’ve got some words for you today, all you
need to do is say the words. Are you ready? Hello and welcome to LetThemTalk. We’re in
the centre of Paris today near our language school where some of our best students have voluntered to try and pronounce some difficult English words. Here are Now let’s ask James
a British friend to pronounce it correctly. If you got it right give yourself a point If you knew that the “B” was silent in climbing
then give yourself a point. if you pronounced vegetables with 3 syllables (veg-ta-bles)
give yourself a point. Don’t pronounce the “W” it’s pronounced the same way as “hole”
(without a “W”). That’s right clothes has one sylable but if you said “cloves” or “close”
that’s ok. “Months” is difficult remember to pronounce the “s” at the end. If you said
“munce” or “mumfs” that’s near enough, give yourself a point. The “B” is silent again. James To help you remember think of “mistake”and “happen” which is more or less what “mishap”
means. If you got between 0 and 4 points. It’s back to school for you. If you got between 5 and 8. You did well but watch a few more English TV dramas to help boost your pronunciation If you got 9 or 10 Congratulations your pronunciation
is great. Put your feet up and have a cup of tea and a chockie bikkie. You deserve it!
