    Now I have known that English is a very rhythmical language, diferent from my native language Japanese. I am too old now, so it is too difficult for me to leran right and natural pronunciation, but I must try it, must try to speak as Americans do. I must try to speak like the way American people speak, so that I come to understand what they say.

    Hello there. I got a pronunciation problem. I always feel like native speakers speak "double n" when they say words like "Anna" "on a…."
    "in a ….". So should I say "in a…" like“ ɪ-nə" or "ɪn-nə"?And…your videos are interesting

    Hey, Rachel! Could you talk a little bit more about that "popcorn quality of the voice" thing – when the vocal chords are not strongly used? Great video as usual!!!!

    You should add the number to the video 's name, how easy it is to find the video that we have learned and practice again. And I wish U would make videos by the topic of ielts speaking or about a certain sentence structurere. Repeating many times will help us can use it in many different circumstances. I dont see the connection between the videos learn with movies. ( I know these videos focus on pronunciation) . Yeah, this is my wish. ^^ . Btw, I love your voice, Thanks a lot for your helpful videos.

    @Rachel's English. At 15:52, the sentence you are explaining reads: "Now does this mean that." By looking at the Benjamin Franklin exercise markings, I noticed there is no mark on the word "mean." But, I could swear that when I say it, there is little stress at the beginning of the word, I also feel that in that context "mean" is an important word that needs to be stressed somehow. Just my feelings! Love your amazing channel and your great-done videos.

    I am honestly learning a lot of tricks from your classes and I am understanding a lot but, if they speak to me quickly I may get all the words but I lose the idea!

    Hi Rachel! What is the best way to learn the IPA? Should I focus in just one sound for a week (for exemple) until I have muscle memory? Should I practice the sound isolated? In some sources says that I should learn each sound with just one word, do you agree with this? After I practice the sound with that specific word over and over again, will I be able to use automatically that sound in other words (with that sound)?

    Hi, Rachel. Thank you so much for another great video!😃 I have a question. Hope you'll reply. 🙏

    As in the video, "probably" is pronounced as /pɹɑbli/. I found out that this kind of reduction also occurs whenever a Schwa ə is followed by the l or the ɹ sound, and then followed by a vowel or a dipthong. Is that really the case?
    For example, how should the following words be pronounced?

    average /'ævəɹɪdʒ/ or /'ævɹɪdʒ/
    chocolate /'tʃɑkəlɪt/ or /ˈtʃɑklɪt/
    contrary /ˈkɑntɹəɹi/ or /ˈkɑntɹi/
    documentary /-təɹi/ or /-tɹi/
    every /'ɛvəɹi/ or /'ɛvɹy/
    favorite /'feɪvəɹət/ or /'feɪvɹət/
    library /'laɪbəɹi/ or /'laɪbɹi/
    literature /'lɪtəɹətʃəɹ/ or /'lɪtɹətʃəɹ/
    lottery /'lɑtəɹi/ or /'lɑtɹi/
    memory /mɛməɹi/ or /mɛmɹi/
    natural /'nætʃʊɹəl/ or /'nætʃɹəl/
    restaurant /ˈɹɛs.təˌɹɑnt/ or /ˈɹɛs.tɹɑnt/
    separate /'sɛpəɹət/ or /'sɛpɹət/
    several /'sɛvəɹəl/ or /'sɛvɹəl/
    slavery /'sleɪvəɹi/ or /'sleɪvɹi/
    temperature /ˈtɛmpəɹətʃəɹ/ or /ˈtɛmpɹətʃəɹ/
    temporary /-pəɹəɹi/ or /-pɹəɹi/
    territory /ˈtɛɹɪˌtɔɹi/ or /ˈtɛɹɪtəɹi/ or ˈtɛɹɪtɹi/ ?

    Is there any other situation when this kind of reduction happens? Is there any rule for this kind of reduction? Thank you so much!🙏😀

    Hi Rachel! Could you let me know what does “breaking the law just talking about it” mean? It is difficult for me to understand this line i think because there is not verb. Help me!😫😫
