English Pronunciation Practice - 13 or 30?


Learn an easy way to pronounce numbers that sound similar 
to non native English speakers. 





Helpful slides from the video ↓

Native speakers pronounce numbers like 30, 40 and 50 
with a D sound rather than a T sound. 


13, 14 15 on the other hand have a much stronger 
T sound in their pronunciation. 


They also have a slightly longer E sound with subtle ‘N’ sound at the end.

13 vs. 30

English Adverbs used with comparison - much bigger, much more interesting

We use adverbs like very/really/quite with adjectives to show a strong degree.

It was very cold yesterday.
Chris is really angry. What happened?
I'm quite tired today. I didn't sleep well last night.

When we want to show a strong degree with comparisons (bigger, more interesting etc.) we need to use the adverb MUCH


Imported apples are much more expensive than local ones.


Kathy is very/really/quite tall.
She is much taller than her husband.
