  • let;s get started with the lesson.

  • Before I start talking to you about pronunciation ,

  • I would just like to mention fruit and

  • vegetable. The two nouns.

  • I often hear my students

  • make a mistake .

  • If you can correct you will sound much more native.

  • Vegetable is a countable noun.

  • Do you like this vegetable?

  • No, I prefer these vegetables.

  • When vegetables is in plural form

  • we add an "s" to the end.

  • Vegetable.

  • Vegetables.

  • Fruit, however is slightly different.

  • It is an exception.

  • It's not an uncountable noun ... but sometimes

  • we do treat it an uncountable noun.

  • If we want to talk about fruit in general,

  • we wouldn't say fruits , we would say fruit.

  • In a supermarket you would see fruit and

  • vegetables.Not fruits and vegetables.

  • Rarely used with the plural "s" ,

  • except in phrases that require one.

  • For example I ate 3 different fruits

  • this morning.

  • Now, let's discuss pronunciation.

  • I am going to start with fruit , simply because I am

  • addicted to fruit, I love it ,

  • it's my favorite food.

  • Make sure you repeat after me.

  • I am going to leave some time for you

  • to practice your pronunciation.
