  • Hi, I'm Tim and this is my pronunciation workshop. Here, I'm gonna show you how

  • English is really spoken. It'll help you to become a better listener and a

  • more fluent speaker. You ready? Come on, follow me.

  • Now, there's an idiom in the English language that means that something is

  • really easy.

  • Any idea what it is?

  • Well, here's a clue. Do you know now? Let's ask the people of London.

  • It's a piece of cake. It's a piece of cake.

  • It's a piece of cake. It's a piece of cake. A piece of cake - an expression that

  • means that something is really easy to do, as well as meaning - a piece of cake.

  • But listen again to the words

  • 'a' and 'of'. They're actually pronounced the same. What is the sound and are those

  • words stressed? It's a piece of cake. It's a piece of cake.

  • It's a piece of cake. It's a piece of cake.

  • The words 'a' and 'of' are both pronounced as /ə/

  • and they are not stressed. This sound /ə/ is the most common sound in the whole English

  • language. It's so common that it even has its own name,

  • schwa. Now, it can be difficult to hear the schwa because it's never stressed.

  • However, it's a vowel sound that's used in many grammar words like articles and

  • prepositions. Here are some more examples.

  • I like a cup of tea in the morning.

  • Could you get me a packet of biscuits?

  • Can you give it to me?

  • I had an apple for lunch today.

  • So, you've heard the examples, and now it's your turn.

  • Are you ready to start? Listen and repeat.

  • I like a cup of tea in the morning.

  • Could you get me a packet of biscuits?

  • Can you give it to me?

  • I had an apple for lunch today.

  • Great work. Now remember, if you want to learn more about pronunciation then

  • please visit our website: bbclearningenglish.com. And that's about it from

  • the pronunciation workshop for now. I'll see you soon. Bye bye. Now, I've got a
