  • Hello and welcome back to English with Lucy.

  • I've got a new microphone.

  • Very exciting.

  • A lot of you have been commenting on my audio quality,

  • so I'm going to try and improve it with this.

  • I've also ordered another one for voiceovers

  • so hopefully my audio quality from now on

  • will be wonderful.

  • One thing I am having trouble with at the moment

  • is my focus so please bear with me

  • with this lesson because I know that my focus isn't great.

  • It's something I'm working on.

  • So today's lesson is going to be a pronunciation lesson.

  • Oxford did a study of over one billion words

  • and they chose the 100 most used words in the English language.

  • So I've taken those 100 words and I'm going to pronounce them for you.

  • Now, in my opinion,

  • the absolute best way to sound more like a native speaker

  • is to imitate other native speakers.

  • So, I want you to imitate or to copy me.

  • So, I'll say the word and then you repeat.

  • I'll say it again.

  • And then you repeat.

  • And then we move on to the next one.

  • Now remember that I am speaking British English.

  • So my pronunciation will be different

  • to an American speakers pronunciation.

  • American English can be quite different.

  • But just as beautiful.

  • Now these words might seem quite easy

  • to you cause they're words that we use all the time,

  • but really concentrate on the vowel sounds.

  • Because in many languages like Spanish,

  • you have five vowel sounds.

  • And in British English we have 12 vowel sounds as well diphthongs.

  • Now, I do have the complete list of the words

  • in the description box so if you are looking

  • for the pronunciation of a specific word,

  • then you can check that and click on the right timing.

  • Okay? Let's begin.
