- Hello everyone and welcome back to English with Lucy.
Today I'm going to talk to you about 11 everyday brands
that you might have been pronouncing incorrectly.
Oh the horror.
Oh the shock.
Let's get started.
I'd quickly like to thank the sponsor of today's video,
it is Skillshare.
They are an online learning community
with thousands of classes of all different topics.
You can learn about marketing, languages,
cooking, craft skills.
Honestly, there are lessons for absolutely everyone.
There are lots of free classes
and you can also sign up to premium membership
and that gives you unlimited access
to high quality classes from experts working in their field.
If you follow me on Instagram,
you know that I love cooking.
I'm always posting what I'm cooking on my stories
and there are some seriously cool cooking classes on there.
Things that I thought you could only make in restaurants.
But to find out more
you'll have to sign up to Skillshare
and it's actually really affordable,
way more affordable than most other learning platforms.
An annual subscription is under $10 per month.
And since Skillshare are sponsoring this video,
they have given the first 500 people
who click the link in the description box
their first two months for free.
So click on the link, sign up,
and there are loads of English courses
and things you might be interested in.
Most importantly, let me know how it goes.
Right.
Let's get started with the lesson.
The first brand that you might be pronouncing incorrectly
is this one.
Now it's a Chinese brand and I've heard lots of variations
but it should be Huawei.
Huawei.
There are lots of articles floating around
saying it should be Huawei or Huawei
but it should be Huawei.
Huawei.
One billion people are probably laughing at me right now.
The next one, I'm sure you've heard of this brand.
It should be pronounced Adobe.
Adobe.
However, I've heard many variations
especially with the magic e on the end, Adobe.
Adobe.
Adobe.
Honestly, Adobe's kind of cool.
They should consider a rebrand.
The next one, the Swedish furniture giant.
It should be pronounced Ikea.
Ikea.
However in England we call it Ikea.
The next one, if you're really posh
you have a washing machine and a dishwasher from this brand.
It's a German brand.
It's the founder's surname
and it should be pronounced Miele, Miele.
Not Miele or Miele as I've been saying it.
The next one, that gorgeous watch brand.
It should be Tag Heuer.
Tag Heuer.
The next one, another German brand.
It should be Bosch.
Bosch.
The next one number seven,
I have very happy memories of playing these games as a kid.
It's a Japanese brand and it should be Sega.
Sega.
I always thought it was Sega.
Wrong.
The next brand, this one definitely shocked me.
It should be pronounced Asus.
Asus.
Not Asus.
Asus.
The next one, a Korean brand,
one of Apple's biggest competitors.
It should be pronounced Samsung.
Samsung
not Samsung as we pronounce it in Britain.
The next one, a Japanese brand.
This one is named after the founder
and it should be Casio.
Casio.
But most people do pronounce it Casio.
And then the last one, another watch brand.
This is a French brand.
And in Britain we pronounce it Rolex.
Rolex.
But it should be Rolex.
Rolex.
I'm terrible at that French r.
Right, that's it for today's lesson.
I hope you enjoyed it
and I hope you learned something.
Don't forget to sign up for Skillshare.
The link is in the description box.
And don't forget to connect with me
on all of my social media.
I've got my Facebook, I've got my Instagram,
and I've got my Twitter.

So exciting!
Anyway, I will see you soon for another lesson.
Mwah!
