  • Hello everyone

  • Welcome to this class. This is the 10 most

  • often mispronounced words in the English language.

  • Maybe not the most mispronounced, but

  • certainly ones that are 'well' mispronounced

  • So some people also asked, what is this this?

  • This is a shotgun microphone. This thing

  • is a wind cover that doesn't really work. So,

  • now that we got that cleared up. Let's do the first example:

  • "information," information

  • in-

  • fur-me-shn

  • in-fur-me-shn

  • common mispronunciation

  • is to say this 'i'

  • as een-formation

  • een-formation like a Spanish

  • speaking or even certain

  • European dialects like some Russian and maybe Turkish or whatever

  • Korean, Japanese, they would make this

  • 'i' as a 'e' so een-formation

  • wrong eh 'eh'nformation

  • Let's do another example, "into"

  • not "ennto," "eento,"

  • wrong. 'eh' 'eh'nto

  • 'ee' 'een'to eh

  • ee eh ee

  • information 'een'formation

  • information 'een'formation slight difference but it makes

  • a huge difference if you want to sound perfect so

  • next one: the "internet"

  • not 'een'ternet

  • 'eh' 'eh'nternet. That was example 1

  • Let's erase. Teacher Phil why don't you use a whiteboard?

  • because I like blackboards because its

  • classic and the white board has a xylene

  • in um markers that smells funny

  • I don't like chalk. I don't like chalk. Well, make your own videos with your chalk.

  • example number 2: "in-

  • te-resting," didn't I just do that?

  • No, I did "into" and "Internet"

  • "interesting" in-tur-

  • hmmin-tur-

  • est-ing

  • I like "dis" car. "des"

  • I like "des" cars 'ee,'

  • d, bad, bad, so

  • "this" tha tha tha

  • we can say reply

  • or "ruh-ply" "reeply"

  • or "ruh-ply"

  • "ruh-ply" I think most people say "ruh-ply" Do you want to reply to the email?

  • "ruh-ply" "ruh-ply"

  • Ruh ruh run ruh-ply

  • excellent next one: "woman"

  • common error

  • I should stop erasing common error and just leave that

  • so the real the real one is

  • "wuh-man" "wuh-man"

  • not "wo-man" or "woo-man"

  • the woman likes

  • the internet. "Duh wo-man likes

  • dee eenternet." Awesome. Next example
