  • I know the video is called how to speak English fast, but do you really need to speak English fast?


  • Let me tell you something.


  • Sometimes we think that native speakers speak fast and this is why they sound so natural.


  • In reality, they don't speak fast.


  • They just connect all the words together.


  • And instead of splitting them up, which sounds a little kind of slower, they just put them all together as if one sentence is one big word.


  • They omit some syllables, they add some new sounds and this is why they sound the way they sound.


  • And sometimes it's hard for us to understand them just because they don't split up words.


  • And we think that they're just speaking too fast, in reality, they're not.


  • Today I'm gonna teach you this technique.


  • I'm gonna teach you how native speakers do it.


  • So you can do it to sound more native and so that you understand the mechanics behind kind of faster speaking so you can understand native speakers.


  • For example, you see a phrase - What do you...

    例如,你看到一個短語 - "What do you..."

  • For example in a sentence - What do you do?

    例如在一個句子中 - "What do you do?"

  • But Americans would never say like this - what do you do?

    但美國人通常不會這樣說 - "what do you do?"

  • They'll say - what do you do?

    他們通常會說 - "Whatdoyoudo?"(連貫發音,將單詞連在一起)。

  • What do you do? - What do you do?

    Whatdoyoudo? - Whatdoyoudo?

  • So the speed the pace is kind of the same it's just connecting everything. Whudduhyuh do?

    所以速度和節奏基本相同,只是把一切都連接在一起。"Whudduhyuh do?"

  • And if you don't know the way they do it, you're like, "What was that?"


  • Another phrase- - I am going to do some shopping.

    另一個短語 - "I am going to do some shopping."

  • What Americans would say, they would say, "I'm gonna do some shopping."

    美國人通常會說,他們會說,"I'm gonna do some shopping."(連貫發音,將單詞連在一起)。

  • Again, not I'm going to, I'm gonna do.

    再次,不會說 "I'm going to",而是 "I'm gonna do"。

  • Again, they've connected something they actually paraphrase a little.


  • I'm gonna get some water, you want some...


  • And some Americans would even say, "Ahmma do shopping."

    有些美國人甚至會說,"Ahmma do shopping."(連貫發音,將單詞連在一起)。

  • This is like the very very contracted version of it.


  • So what Americans do, they take those smaller words and they pronounce them in a way that is easier for them in daily speec


  • For example article"the" is pronounced like "duh".

    例如,冠詞 "the" 在發音上會簡化成 "duh"。

  • What's the weather today?


  • So they don't say what's the weather today?

    他們不會說 "what's the weather today?"

  • They say what's duh weather today?

    而是說 "what's duh weather today?"

  • So it's duh because it's easier.

    說 duh 是因為念起來比較簡單。

  • Oh what about the weather report?


  • You sometimes sounds like "yuh".

    You 有時候聽起來像是 "yuh"。

  • Do yuh want to go for a walk?

    Do yuh want to go for a walk?

  • Again, do you want to go for a walk sounds as if you just started learning English.

    "Do you want to go for a walk?" 聽起來好像你剛剛開始學英語一樣。

  • Do yuh want to go for walk sounds closer to being a native speaker.

    "Do yuh want to go for a walk?" 聽起來更接近母語人士的發音。

  • And another thing that you might have noticed when we say what do.

    還有一件事,你可能已經注意到了,當我們說 "what do" 時。

  • So we have T at the end of the word what and we have D at the beginning of the word do.

    所以在單詞 "what" 的末尾有個 "T",而在單詞 "do" 的開頭有個 "D"。

  • We kind of invent a new sound here.


  • Instead of saying what do you do, we say whutchuhyuh do?

    與ㄑㄧ "What do you do?",我們說 "Whutchuhyuh do?"

  • So there is a sound chip which appears in the middle.


  • Again, this is a way to make your speech smoother and this is what all native speakers do.


  • For example, whutchuhyuh do for a living?

    例如:whutchuhyuh do for a living?

  • Whutchuhyuh do for a living?

    Whutchuhyuh do for a living?

  • Whutchuhyuh do?

    Whutchuhyuh do?

  • To make this even clearer for you, I'm gonna read a sentence out loud.


  • The first time I read it, I'm gonna read it as a student.


  • The second time I read it, I would try to read it as a native speaker.


  • Let's do it.


  • I am going to go out to Walmart. Do you need anything?


  • Ahmma gonna go ou'tuh Walmartchuuh nee danything?

    Ahmma gonna go ou'tuh Walmartchuuh nee danything? (連貫發音,將單詞連在一起)。

  • Again, I replaced I'm going to with ahmma gonna, go to Walmart.

    我將 "I'm going to" 替換為 "Ahmma gonna",去沃爾瑪。

  • And I've connected Walmart with do. We have a word that ends with T and we have a word with that begins with D.

    而且我將沃爾瑪與 "do" 連接在一起。我們有一個以 T 結尾的詞和一個以 D 開頭的詞。

  • So I'm gonna go to Walmart, chuh needanthing?

    I'm gonna go to Walmart, chuh needanthing?

  • And there's this chuh that appeared in the middle.

    而且中間出現了 "chuh" 這個音聲片段。

  • The next word a little confusing, I know, especially when you hear this first in a native speaker speech.


  • Something, they say sumpthin.

    Something 這個字他們會說 sumpthin。

  • I don't know why this appears, it's just the way the language evolves, so people speak it.


  • But, can you give me sumpthin?

    But, can you give me sumpthin?

  • This is sometimes when native speakers say, which is correct don't be confused, it's just the same as something.

    有時候母語人士就是會說 sumpthin,這是對的話,所以不要困惑,他就跟 something 是一樣的。

  • Sumpthin.


  • The next phrase, let me give you something.

    下一句,let me give you something。

  • The Americans would say lemmee givyun sumpthin.

    美國人會說 lemmee givyun sumpthin。

  • So they just omit the letter T and you get lemmee, lemmee get you sumpthin.

    他們會省略字母 T,這樣就會是 lemmee, lemmee get you sumpthin。

  • Lemmee get you sumpthin.

    Lemmee get you sumpthin。

  • In American English, if you have a letter T in the middle of a word, sometimes you pronounce it as D

    在美式英文,如果在單字中間有字母 T,有時候他們會唸成 D。

  • Letter, ledder.

    Letter 唸成 ledder。

  • Letter?


  • Because it's faster, beacause it's smoother.


  • City, you know how to say it, siddy.

    City,你應該知道要怎麼念,念成 siddy。

  • Siddy.


  • It's like DNR, siddy.


  • Bitter, and it sounds a little British, so in Great Britain, they would still say bitter.

    Bitter,聽起來有點英式英文,所以在英國,他們會說 bitter。

  • In American English, they would say bidder.

    美式英文,會說 bidder。

  • Bidder.


  • Let me give you some more examples.


  • Bottle, bodduh.

    Bottle 念成 bodduh。

  • Butter, budder.

    Butter 念成 budder。

  • Computer, I can't even say it with the T.

    Computer,我甚至沒辦法把 T 唸出來。

  • Computer, compyooder.

    Computer 唸成 compyooder。

  • Daughter, dawdder.

    Daughter 唸成 dawdder。

  • Eighty, ayddy.

    Eighty 唸成 ayddy。

  • Forty, fordy.

    Forty 唸成 fordy。

  • Little, lidduhl.

    Little 唸成 lidduhl。

  • Settle , sedduhl.

    Settle 唸成 sedduhl。

  • Thirty, thurdy.

    Thirty 唸成 thurdy。

  • You see this T converts D all the time.

    你會看到這個 T 一直在轉換成 D。

  • As you notice, it's even unnatural for me to say little, thirty, just because I'm so used to, you know, in certain D instead of T.

    正如你所注意到的,我說 little,thirty 把 T 唸出來甚至很不自然,因為我已經習慣了,你知道,念 D 而不是 T。

  • This would come automatically, not automatically to you guys when you practice.


  • This is first the way to speak faster; second this is the way to speak more naturally.

    首先這是語速更快的方法; 其次,這是更自然的說話方式。

  • And third this is an easier way to understand native speakers because you now know how the mechanics work.


  • Let me know if this was useful for you guys.


  • The homework for you, the task, is write down in comments below what other words have T in the middle and you pronounce them with a D.

    你的作業,即任務,就是在下面的留言區中寫下中間有 T 的其他單詞,並且你用 D 發音它們。

  • Just what I told you. Thirty, thurddy; little, lidduhl, that kind of stuff.

    像我告訴你們的。Thirty 唸成 thurddy、little 唸成 lidduhl,諸如此類的。

  • You can Google that but make sure you write something in comments so that you can practice.
