  • Hello, everyone.

  • My name is Fiona.

  • Today, we're going to be looking at two words that will really help your English pronunciation

  • and listening skills.

  • They look the same and they almost sounds the same.

  • but what's the difference?

  • Keep watching to find out why.

  • Let's get started.

  • Okay, this one is tricky, so I really want you to listen hard.

  • okay?

  • I'm going to say the sentence first quickly.

  • Are you ready?

  • 'We produce produce at the farm.'

  • Oooh, that one's tough.

  • I know, I know.

  • So I'm gonna say it again but slower.

  • Second time.

  • Are you ready?

  • 'We produce produce at the farm.'

  • Now I'll show you.

  • Here's the sentence.

  • 'We produce produce at the farm.'

  • What words go in these two gaps?

  • Any ideas?

  • Well, the answer is

  • 'We produce produce at the farm.'

  • They look exactly the same.

  • I know, I know.

  • But the pronunciation here is really important.

  • It changes the meaning and gives you two different words.

  • So let's find out why.

  • Now let's have a look at our two words.

  • We have 'produce' and 'produce'.

  • They're spelled the same, but the meaning and the pronunciation is different.

  • It's a 'heteronym'.

  • What is a 'heteronym'?

  • It's where the two words are spelled the same way,

  • but the meaning and the pronunciation is different.

  • Let's start with the meaning and pronunciation of our first word.

  • 'Produce'.

  • 'Produce' is a verb.

  • It means to make something.

  • And I have two sentences to show you.

  • 'France produces a lot of wine.'

  • And 'Cities produce a lot of trash.'

  • They make a lot of rubbish.

  • Now Let's practice pronunciation.

  • 'Produce'

  • 'Produce'

  • Okay, time for word number 2.

  • 'Produce'.

  • 'Produce' is a noun.

  • It means fruits and vegetables.

  • So you might have the produce section at a market.

  • Again, I have two sentences to show you this.

  • 'I work at the produce section in the market.'

  • 'I work at the produce section in the market.'

  • And our second sentence,

  • 'They have fresh produce everyday.'

  • 'They have fresh produce everyday.'

  • Ok, let's practice pronunciation.

  • Are you ready?

  • Repeat after me.

  • 'Produce'

  • 'Produce'

  • Let's go back to our main sentence.

  • 'We produce produce at the farm.'

  • We 'produce', we make we grow, 'produce', fresh fruits and vegetables,

  • at the farm.

  • Ok, let's practice together.

  • First, we'll go slow.

  • 'We produce produce at the farm.'

  • Now faster like a native speaker.

  • 'We produce produce at the farm.'

  • Well done.

  • Great job today, guys.

  • You did really well.

  • And we got some awesome listening and pronunciation practicing.

  • Leave a comment down below.

  • I read all of them.

  • And I'm always thankful for my students support.

  • I'll see you in the next video.

Hello, everyone.
