  • Hi welcome to ForB's English lesson video.

  • My name's Kevin and today we are going to look at how to pronounce run and ran.

  • So first, run.

  • When you say run, your tongue is just kind of in the middle not touching anything.

  • Just hanging there and it's kind of a "ru" "un" sound.

  • So I'll demonstrate.

  • run, run, run.

  • Now you try.

  • run, run, run.

  • OK.

  • Now for the next one, ran.

  • So we have kind of a "ra" "un" sound.

  • And when we make that "a" sound in the middle

  • you have to have your mouth kind of wide with your mouth wider.

  • And again, your tongue is just hanging there in the middle not touching anything.

  • So watch me as I do it, so.. ran, ran, ran.

  • Now you try.

  • ran, ran, ran.

  • OK.

  • Now we're going to do a little quiz. we have two quizzes.

  • So for quiz number one,

  • I'm going to say run which is number one

  • and ran which is number two.

  • And you have to decide which I'm saying.

  • So here we go.

  • Here's the first one.

  • Ran. Is that number one or number two?

  • Well, it's number two.

  • So, if you got that, you are correct.

  • Next one.

  • Ran.

  • Is that number one or number two?

  • I'm trying to trick you.

  • It's number two.

  • I did it twice. ha, ha, ha.

  • So, the last one, run.

  • Was that number one or number two?

  • If you said number one, you are correct.

  • Now, for you quiz number two.

  • I'm going to say a sentence.

  • Actually, I'm going to say two sentences.

  • And the first sentence, number one, is "I run from the police."

  • and for number two, "I ran from the police."

  • OK?

  • Now here comes the quiz.

  • So you've got to choose number one or number two.

  • The first one.

  • "I run from the police."

  • Was that number one or number two?

  • If you answered number one, you are correct.

  • Here's the next one.

  • "I ran from the police."

  • Was that number one or number two?

  • Well, it was number two.

  • So if you got that, you're correct.

  • Last one, "I run from the police."

  • Number one or number two?

  • That was number one.

  • So I hope you can hear the difference.

  • After that, I think it should have helped you.
