  1. Hi Hadar,

    Wonderful Vid on working toward a more natural sound with your English. I always look forward to your instructional videos. Small thing, but somewhat embarrassing. Please correct the spelling in one of your info slides, from ’emphesis’ to ’emphasis’.

    Your greatest Fan,

    Phil

  2. how to come over my nerve or tension to pronounce well and to have a good accent ,because when I get tension a forget every single word I’ve ever learned.

  3. I did a Judge my accent review on Reddit around two weeks ago. I was told my R is a bit off and I definitely raise my voice a lot when I mean something to be higher in pitch. What does higher in pitch actually mean and how can I get more conscious of it? Back in the day, I used to always stress the first syllable of every single word ’cause that’s what we do in Finnish, but then I started learning Spanish. It took me a year to start hearing where the stress was and it was mainly thanks to Portuguese nasal vowels that I started hearing the difference. Now I immediately hear where a word or a sentence is stressed.

    Thank you for your videos. I hope I can get the pitch thing and R thing right. They as well as the fact that I pronounce diphtongs in a very non reduced way make my accent a bit off.
