One question I get asked regularly by learners of English is, “how come I practice a new word and succeed in pronouncing it right but then fail to get it right when using it in a conversation later on?”

Has that ever happened to you? In this episode I discuss why it is not enough to improve in English simply by watching a video or listening to a podcast, and what you need to do to really see results when you speak.

  3. Hi Hadar ! Thank you for your podcast, clear and well understandable. I acknowledge that pronunciation is an inherent part of the right speaking. It provides for the technical features of the talk the honor they deserve. So it seems in the future all those using the American English could be divided into two groups. The members of the first one can express by pronunciation that they belong to a “higher class” of English using population (using authentic language). Probably high ranking artists, orators, outstanding experts of phonetics will belong to this group. Members of the second group may be the “technicians”. They can understand and express everything but their language will be neutral without superb linguistic beauties.
