  • Hi there, I'm Drew Badger, the world's

  • number one English Fluency Guide and it

  • is a pleasure to welcome to the third

  • video in this mini boot camp for

  • pronunciation so far we focused on

  • individual sounds as we practiced in

  • lesson 1 we focused on the blending of

  • two words in less than 2 and in this one

  • we will focus on developing

  • pronunciation through the mastery of

  • phrases a phrase is just a group of

  • words said together and if you listen

  • carefully even to how I'm speaking in

  • this video I'm speaking in phrases i'm

  • speaking in groups of words and I

  • pronounce them as one word for each

  • phrase I'm speaking and phrases i'm

  • speaking in phrases so let's look at two

  • phrases and practice making these so you

  • can develop a better sense for how to

  • use phrases as well as how to practice

  • the first phrase is could you ask her or

  • could you ask him or could you ask them

  • we begin by just focusing on the

  • pronunciation of the individual words

  • just that we can understand it clearly

  • could you ask him now could you ask him

  • could you ask him becomes food you asked

  • him could you ask him

  • could you ask him now we're doing this

  • because again we pronounce things in a

  • conversation away we're trying to save

  • them as quickly and as smoothly as

  • possible and really we do this because

  • the other person typically a native

  • speaker will understand what we mean

  • so if i say could you ask him i'm

  • speaking really quickly but they

  • understand what I'm saying also humans

  • in general are able to understand things

  • much much faster so if you maybe listen

  • to a movie or something in your native

  • language but if you play it much much

  • faster you'll be able to still

  • understand everything you're hearing so

  • when we take a phrase like could you ask

  • him the first thing we do is really

  • blend it together but we say it slowly

  • just so we get the pronunciation to

  • correctly again we always want to

  • pronounce things in a phonetic way and

  • this is why i write the phonetic

  • spellings of things and again the

  • phonetic spelling is just what you might

  • use even if you're not using the correct

  • spelling but you're still using regular

  • english letters in order to pronounce

  • something instead of using something

  • like the international phonetic alphabet

  • so could you ask him if we see it like a

  • native speaker but say it slowly becomes

  • could you ask him food you asked him

  • could you asking

  • could you ask him the same thing with

  • could you ask her food you asked her

  • could you ask her food you ask her

  • so could you ask her to come to the

  • party could you ask him to take out the

  • trash

  • could you ask him to take out the trash

  • when you're practicing this way the

  • first thing to do is select the phrase

  • and then think about how you would

  • pronounce it as a native speaker and

  • then begin by doing it slowly

  • could you ask him and then once you get

  • that pronunciation you can start moving

  • faster

  • could you ask him could you ask him

  • could you ask could you ask could you

  • ask him could you ask him and it sounds

  • just like one word like the name of a

  • crazy town in america i live in could

  • you ask him

  • finally we'll cover one more phrase just

  • so this is really clear in a minute

  • we have one phrase in a minute we've

  • selected our phrase we begin by

  • pronouncing each thing like a robot

  • would we're trying to pronounce

  • everything in a minute in a minute but

  • again if you think about this when you

  • try to pronounce that the robotic way it

  • really sounds difficult to say if you're

  • in a conversation in up minute in a

  • minute

  • so we've taken it like that now lets

  • blend it together II know minute in a

  • minute in the man knit in the minute in

  • a minute

  • even if we pronounce slowly it still

  • sounds more like conversational speech

  • in a minute in a minute in a minute

  • the t4 minutes basically disappears

  • Minute Men it mean it in a minute in a

  • minute

  • so again you find your phrase you try to

  • pronounce everything clearly just so you

  • understand the difference between what a

  • more robotic sound and what a more

  • blended sound is like and then you build

  • from slow to fast just practicing the

  • phrase over and over again until you can

  • use it automatically

  • in a minute I'll see you in a minute

  • I'll come to your house in a minute i'll

  • finish in a minute you can practice this

  • phrase and just like native speakers do

  • they remember this phrase they learn

  • this phrase and then they can use it in

  • many different situations in a minute in

  • a minute in a minute
