How to speak naturally in English: Reduction Mistakes

Hello, everyone!

As non-native speakers, we always pursue the best pronunciation. Have you ever noticed how native speakers shorten their words when they speak with each other?

This is called reduction, and you may have already started using this in your own English. If so, watch out for some common mistakes when reducing words.

The expressions “I havta“, “I wanna“, and “I’m gonna” are examples of reductions. If you have never learned about reduction, now is your chance to understand native speakers better, and to become more fluent in English yourself!

Here is a quiz for you!

The linguistic genius of babies

Hey, everyone! How are you?

Patricia Kuhl shares astonishing findings about how babies learn one language over another — by listening to the humans around them and “taking statistics” on the sounds they need to know.

The subtitles are in English in this website. If you feel willing to leave a comment, please do it!

Patricia Kuhl

“What have we learned? Well, babies all over the world are what I like to describe as ‘citizens of the world.’ They can discriminate all the sounds of all languages, no matter what country we’re testing and what language we’re using, and that’s remarkable because you and I can’t do that.”
