Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 2 – Episode 32 – Pronunciation Skill – Pronouncing Final Consonant /t/ Before Another Consonant

As I went over on my previous podcast, this one is very similar because in order for you to sound like a native speaker of English, you’ll have to learn how to link words. I’ve been over this quite a few times already, and will continue going over this for a LONGGGGG time. So, brace yourself.

When a word ends with /t/ and the following word begins with a consonant, the final /t/ in the first word is not fully pronounced.  Instead, we stop our voice very quickly before saying the next word.
