    Tips to Enhance your Vowel Pronunciation with Diphthongs

    Did you know that the majority of what makes up a person’s accent are vowels? In fact, one of the most common problems English language learners have with English pronunciation is the vowels.

     

    In this lesson, we will be focusing on a particular subgroup of vowels called diphthongs and how improving your understanding and pronunciation of them can make a big difference in your competence and confidence in speaking English.

     

    I am willing to bet that anyone, from beginner to advanced English speakers, will learn something new from this! Follow along through the practice exercises as well!

    Hey there! So in today's lesson, we are gonna talk about hefud glarth min fingle schake! What? What?? Whaaaat? 🤷

     

    You should be confused with the previous sentence because it doesn't mean anything! But if you find yourself saying "what" every time you don’t understand something, you might be surprised to learn that it can be a little rude or impolite!

     

    SO today I'm going to give you some better, more natural ways to express that you didn't understand, and ask someone to repeat something!

     

    There are a variety of different ways to express you didn't understand depending on whether you are face to face, talking over the phone, being formal or informal...so make sure you watch the whole video to find out which phrases are used for which situations!

    Why is my English not improving?

    Why is my English not improving?

    As an advanced or intermediate English learner, you may feel like you have hit a bump and your English is not improving. 😕

     

    Some may say they just don't have the time to study as much, the teacher is not good that's why you can't keep improving or it just seems impossible to get better.

     

    Why these reasons may feel true to you, this is just a hump that you should be proud of to have reached. This means you are doing something right. 😄
     
    Stick around until the end to hear my story about the moment I felt that I got over the hump!

    How to Build Your Vocabulary in English, Even If You Have A Bad Memory

    How to Build Your Vocabulary in English, Even If You Have A Bad Memory

    One way we can have more fun with English and improve our English skills is to learn more vocabulary words! Not just read them or hear them, but actually KNOW them and know how to use them in conversation. If you want to be a more interesting English speaker, whether you’re a native or non-native English learner, vocabulary is the way to do that!

     

    How do we memorize more vocabulary words so that we can make them an active part of our own everyday conversations? Well, buckle up, hang on and come along for this video. I'm going to share several tips and strategies - ways that I have improved my own vocabulary in English, my own language, and other foreign languages that I have learned throughout the years.

     

    If we can help 10,000 learners download the Duolingo app, we're going to have a special live video next week on Thursday, October 29th! It will be a special Q&A and a special lesson.

     

    Make sure you click on the link below and help us to work towards this goal together, to improve our vocabulary as a community - as a GoNaturalEnglish family together with Duolingo!

    5 Differences Between Canadian and American Pronunciation

    Have you ever heard people talk about the “Canadian accent” and wondered what exactly that is? Maybe you’ve heard people talk about it in movies and TV shows like South Park, but weren’t quite sure what is real vs. what isn’t.

     

    As someone who has lived and is a citizen of both the US and Canada, as well as a self-admitted linguistics geek, I am here to give you the inside scoop into some of the differences in how Canadians and Americans talk.

     

    Whether you’ve moved to Canada and want to understand the culture and dialect a bit better, or if you, like me, enjoy guessing people’s nationality based on their accent, you have come to the right place!
