  • Hello and welcome back to English with Lucy.

  • I've got a pronunciation video for you today, and it's all about ten words that you might be pronouncing incorrectly.

  • So, let's get started.

  • Ok so the first word is this one!

  • How would you say it?

  • It's not "fru-it."

  • There are not two syllables there.

  • We actually pronounce this word 'fruit.'

  • "fruit."

  • So many students make the mistake of saying "fru-it."

  • Or "fruiiiit," "fruiiit."

  • But no, it's just "fruit."

  • And "fruit" is my favorite food.

  • The next word we have is this one.

  • So many students actually pronounce this how they would pronounce it in their own language.

  • Probably the Italians and the Spanish more than anything.

  • But we pronounce this not "cha-os."

  • Not "cha-os."

  • But "chaos."

  • We almost add a "y" sound, "chaos."

  • It was an absolute "chaos."

  • The same with the adjective form.. it was "chaotic."

  • Ok, number three, we have...

  • Now I remember learning to spell this word when I was at school and thinking "wow, that's a crazy spelling' because it's so different to the pronunciation."

  • Now, I've heard all different pronunciations for this word.

  • I've heard "kuwew," I've head "kyooyoo."

  • But really we just say "queue," "queue."

  • One syllable, and everyone knows that British people love "queueing," "queue," "to queue," "there is a queue."

  • There's the verb and the noun as well.

  • Now on to number four, and this one always makes me laugh when people say this cos it is really difficult to say.

  • It is...this one.

  • Now I hear people say "crips."

  • I used to work in a cafe with a lot of foreign workers, and they would always say 'Where are the crips?'

  • And I'd be like 'crips," are you talking about "crepes?'

  • We say '"crisps."

  • This 'sps' sound is very difficult for some people to say, so you need to practice this in the mirror before you brush your teeth every night...crisps.

  • Ok number five is this one.

  • If you like cooking then you should have seen this word before.

  • And most people say "resips" or "reseeps."

  • But it should be "recipe."

  • So it's very irregular this word.

  • Normally when an e is on the end we don't pronounce it but in this case we do.

  • Recipe, three syllables.

  • Ok, number 6, this one.

  • Ok so many people pronounce this incorrectly.

  • They want to say every syllable, so they say "com-for-ta-ble" but really it's "comfortable."

  • "Comfortable," so it's not "com-for-ta-ble," it's just "comf-t-ble."

  • Ok, so we actually lose a syllable there.

  • The same goes for number seven which is not "veg-e-ta-ble," "vegetable."

  • Not "veg-e-ta-ble," "vegetable."

  • Not "ve-ge-ta-ble," "vegetable."

  • Similarly we have number 8.

  • Ok, very important word, if you don't know this word then you're crazy cos it's a big part of my life.

  • I hear many people say "cho-co-late" or "cho-co-late..." "choco..." "choco," but we say "chok-lit."

  • "Chocolate."

  • So, it's just 2 syllables, and I understand it's quite hard for many people to pronounce, but, you wanna speak English well you got to practice.

  • So "chocolate..." "chocolate."

  • Ok, and my last two are days of the week so number nine...this one...

  • Not one of my favorite days of the week, but it's very important to pronounce it correctly.

  • I always hear "Tu-es-day."

  • "Tu-es-day."

  • When in reality it's "Tuesday."

  • Choose, like I want to choose what I'm having for breakfast this morning.

  • "Tuesday," not "tu-es-day," "Tuesday."

  • And then the last one.

  • Another day of the week.

  • Not wed-nes-day.... "Wednesday."

  • Not "wed-nes-day..." "Wednesday."

  • So that's it for this pronunciation lesson.

  • I really hope it helped you, and hopefully you can now pronounce these words more confidently.

  • You will need to repeat and practice again and again and again, but that's part of learning a language so get started now!

  • Make sure that you connect with me on all of my social media.

  • It's all here.

  • And I look forward to seeing you in class very very soon! mwah!
