{Patreon Special} Pronunciation Course | Phase III | Reducing Structure Words

Welcome to the second-to-last audio/video of my pronunciation course, phase III! Today I’m bringing you reducing structure words. After coaching an Egyptian pharmacist and hearing out she over-stressed structured words, this is very important for everyone out there. Here’s a sneak peek. Remember, it’s available on all Patreon badges!

Unstressed words are often reduced, meaning some sounds are shortened or omitted.

Dictionary Pronunciation Reduced Pronunciation

Is John’/z/ an old friend.
Can /kan/ you see?
Him Letem go.
Of I need a book /uh/ stamps.

Structure words are often reduced through contractions, the omission of consonant sounds, and the reduction of vowel sounds to schwa.

Pronunciation Course | Phase III | Unstressed Words in Sentences

We’re back with the third-to-last video in the pronunciation course! Again, if you guys are ready and requesting the video course, please reach out to me and I’ll make it LIVE on Podia. Until then, this audio is available on all Patreon badges, as stated dozens of times before.

And in today’s episode, I will teach you how to unstress structured words. Remember, structured words make the grammar of the sentence correct, but in spoken English, we often unstress them.

{Patreon Special} Pronunciation Course | Phase III | Rhythm in Phrases & Sentences

This is a PHENOMENAL one, especially for those of you who have problems with enunciation and the rhythm in your sentences. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been coaching a range of students, and one, in particular, has problems with the rhythm in her sentences. Going back to three years ago, I coached a Thai doctor because her rhythm was the exact opposite of what it was supposed to be, failing the 3rd part of her exam to become a doctor in America because the patients didn’t understand her. You have no idea how important it is to have the CORRECT rhythm. So, this podcast is available on all my Patreon badges (if you’re a current student, message me and you get it for free). And if you want the entire VIDEO course to this phase, let inbox me because I will quickly create the course on podia for you. Now, let’s dive into it!

{Patreon Special} Pronunciation Course | Phase III | Word Stress in Two-Syllable Verbs, Noun-Verb Pairs, & Two-Word Verbs

Here’s the 4th audio of the course! If you’re on my Early Access Badge (5$ a month), getting all the podcasts early (more than 30), or any of the other badges, you’re getting my pronunciation course FOR FREE! Make sure you inquire! And in saying that, here’s a snippet of what today’s audio session is about…..

Many English verbs consist of a prefix (e.g., de-) and a root (e.g., -cide). Listen for the primary stress in the following words in my video.

Decide                         decide on the next step

Convince                      convince him to go

Reference                   refer to your notes

In two-syllable verbs with a prefix, stress the root form.

Additional Task: Use the root forms below to write at least three more two-syllable verbs in each column.

Pronunciation Course | Phase I | Speech Profile

Before we begin, I wanted to make this as interactive as possible.  What you’re going to do is send me a video – yes – a video of you speaking and giving a thorough introduction of yourself (if you want to do an audio, that’s ok, too).

Why? I want to give you feedback on your pronunciation before we begin the course.  If I don’t, we’ll never know exactly if you will have improved or not.  So, your introduction will be based on the questions down below.

  • Your name, where you’re from
  • Tell me about your hobbies, interests, passion
  • Reasons for taking my course, areas you would like to improve
  • Your overall goal as a non-NES speaker (or Native Speaker)

Pronunciation Features

Consonant Sounds

Vowel Sounds

Grammatical Endings

Word Stress

Rhythm

Thought Groups

Focus

Final Intonation

Connected Speech

Consonant Clusters

After you submit your recording, I will grade you in the areas above before sending it to you.

Arsenio’s Pronunciation Course on UDEMY Debut!

Omg! The first of five phases are finally here to get your pronunciation up to par! After so many pronunciation podcasts, I’ve finally created a course (in five phases) for all of you who want to improve your pronunciation and communicate directly with me! I’m so excited about this because I know the majority of my pronunciation podcasts have had the most plays (in addition to my IELTS, TOEIC, AND TOEFL iBT/iTP, which are also getting created in course form).

So, after so many years of doing podcasting, here’s my first course (for ESL learners or people who would like to improve their overall pronunciation). Let’s go over some of the content.

Pronunciation Profile

  • I will determine your pronunciation priorities — the features that will most improve your overall enunciation. (I will do this by you submitting and recording for your needs assessment, as well as figuring out what level you’re at).
  • Explore some of the main reasons why you want to improve your pronunciation: everyday speaking, presentations, travel, business-oriented, etc.
  • Set personal goals for the course and beyond.

Into Chapter 1

I will preview the following things before going into phase 2:

  • Syllables and syllable stress.
  • Vowel sounds in stressed syllables.
  • The schwa sound in unstressed syllables.
  • Vowel and consonant symbols on online dictionaries and understanding phonetics.

For each video comes an assignment and homework. I suggest you download zoom so I can assess you and go over your assignments, too. I’m going to make this as interactive as possible, and you’re more than welcome to email me at anytime.

This will be reposted when the course makes it official debut with the link and other things.
