  1. WOW! your pronunciation is great. How did you do it. I was born here in Israel and moved to the states close to 70 years ago. I still have a slight accent. I use the Israeli “R” I was never able to switch to the American “R”

  2. Mainly you really possess the capacity to teach or guide any kind of learner rightly & accurately. I truly appreciate it & wish your success.

  3. I am working hard to improve my English pronunciation. I really appreciate your advices about this aspect. I will download the PDF.

  4. Thank you so much Hadar for this one and all the material you share with us, it is incredibly useful. I feel really empowered after watching your videos. All the best!

  5. I started reading loud in English
    I kept the list of new vocabulary
    I try to listen TV shows in English

  6. They are really powerful tips. I am already working on some of them. I like to record myself and listen again to myself. It helps me to figure out my strength and weakness points.

  7. Many thanks, Hadar! I’m starting now following your channel and that’s amazing!
    Sincerely yours!
    Débora

  8. Invent your own pronunciation alphabet to include all the features that you consider troublesome to you. When practicing try to look at and apply it.

  9. Thank you Hadar for the tips ! One more to add, read something in English and then say the main idea with your own words.

  10. Watch movies dubbed in your native language with English subtitles. I know, I know: It is precisely the opposite of what most learners do. However, it has the advantage of 100% correspondence between what you hear (in your native language) and what you read. And there is also the advantage of learning idiomatic expressions and colloquialisms (existing in the dubbing version) whose meaning you probably would not understand if the same movie was watched with original audio in English (even with English subtitles).

  11. Hooray !!!! I speak English! (Tip #50)

    I’m from Brazil and I study English every single day! I change the way I practice English every now and then. As an example, I have been listening to radio a lot, lately! So this is my tip for today: Choose a city or a region you would like to live or to visit and listen to its local radio stations. Most of the radio stations today are broadcasting by internet too. It’s not a big deal to find one.

    See you next time!

  12. I’m going to use this tip:

    15. Spend 5 minutes a day thinking in English.

    Thank you, this is the first, I’ll continue with next one…
