Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles (electronic music) - Hello everyone, and welcome back to English with Lucy. Today, I've got my biggest pronunciation video yet. It's been a long time in the making. This video is going to show you 100 words that are difficult to pronounce, the definitions of the words, and also how to pronounce them in British English. We're going along with the pronunciation advice from the Oxford Learner's Dictionary, the link of which I will put in the description box. This video is going to be fabulous for your pronunciation, for your relaxation because I feel like a lot of people come to my videos just to have someone talking in a soft voice in the background, but it's also going to be great for your listening, because if you know how to pronounce certain words, then you will be able to understand them when people say them to you. I'm also going to share the definition with you as well so you'll be able to improve your vocabulary. So by the end of this video, you should be able to understand 100 words, use 100 advanced words in your vocabulary, and also pronounce 100 words perfectly. Before we get started, I'd just like to remind you that if you want to improve your listening and pronunciation even further, I really, really recommend Audible. Reading is great for improving vocabulary, but if you actually hear the words in your ear and read them as you go along, oh, it works wonders on your brain. It works wonders on your language skills. Audible are offering one free audio book as a 30-day free trial. All you have to do is click on the link in the description box and sign up. I pay for Audible myself. I use it all the time and especially when I'm running and I adore it. Right, let's get started with the video. One, albeit. Albeit. Meaning although. Two, almond. Almond.
