Hi everyone, I'm not sure if you can help me with this but I think it's worth asking. I've noticed lately that I pronounce some words the British way and some the American. For instance, I pronounce the words like better, butter, bottom, matter with the 'd' sound but words like 'watter, bottle, meeting, heating, waiting' with the 't' sound. I'm not sure what I should do about it. I feel like I don't sound good when I, for instance, pronounce the word 'bottle' the American way. Some of the words are real tongue twisters. Do you think it's okay or should I work on it and choose one way of pronouncing the english words? Many thanks.

Hello, I heard people pronounce the indefinite article "a" in two different ways. One is - what I consider the standard way - pronounced like the first letter of e.g. "accomplishment" (the phonetic symbol for this is an upside-down "e" but I can't type this here) and the other is pronounced like the first letter of the alphabet [ey]. However, the second pronounciation is not always used but only used in some cases. I could not figure out yet which these cases are. Can you tell me about these two ways of pronouncing "a" and when they are used? Regards, Paul

Do people in New England and Alabama speak differently? Are their pronunciation that different? I thought all Americans speak like Anderson on CNN but apparently that seems not true.

How can I be fluent in english listening? Listening is a special skill in itself Firstly you need to be aware of how native speakers differ from second language speakers and learners. Word and sentence stress, linking, rhythm, word focus, reductions and contractions, pitch and a number of other factors need to be .understood by the listener. This will help the listener to grasp the subtleties of speech. Next of course is the nightmare of different accents and this area can only be improved by listening to local dialects and researching special phonic rules for these dialects. A knowledge of slang will also improve listening recognition.as native speakers often adopt slang to simplify meaning. The listener needs to be prepared for gramar rules to be broken aas native speakers are not teachers. Next it isimportant to consider what listening is hoping to achieve beyong just understanding. Is accuracy the most important factor; for example announcements at an airport ? Is efficiency the main goal suxh that the listener gets’the gist’ . This requires distinguishing important and unimportant information.Another factor maybe following the structure of the talk - keeping track - very important when watching a drama on TV for example.Other issies that affect the listeners ability to understand are familiarity to the subject and vocabulary used. Concentration is also vital for fluent listening and this especially difficult with second language listening. John Email Removed
