As per the dictionary, "before" is pronounced as /b-fôr/ and "behind" is pronounced as /b-hnd/ (in AmE and BrE). But couple of times, I've heard my European friends say "ba-fore" and "ba-hind". And as a matter of fact, I've started speaking like them. Which one is the right way? "be-" or "ba-"

askshameerWhich one is the right way? "be-" or "ba-"
"be-" You can even slow down a little and use "bee" as in the word "bee".

in my point of view its "be"not "ba"

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
ba- isn't correct
