Hi there, it’s Hadar, and
this is the Accent’s Way.
Your way to finding clarity, confidence,
and freedom in English.
Today I wanna give you a quick tip
on how to clearly pronounce
the word restaurant.
So, I hear a bunch of
of this specific word, so let’s clarify
what’s the best way to go about it.
So, you can pronounce it both ways.
You can pronounce it as
restaurant with three syllables,
but I like the two-syllable
So, let’s begin with the first syllable.
Rest, rest, as in the rest of them.
So, we begin with an R, so round your lips
and pull the tongue up for the R.
You can hold it out to make sure
that you’re pronouncing the R correctly.
And then open your mouth to an eh sound.
Then the tongue goes up for an S.
Res, and is abruptly stopped by the T.
Do you hear it?
Actually, you’re not supposed to hear it.
‘Cause there is no T here, it’s not rest.
It’s rest, okay?
I’m blocking the air
with my tongue abruptly,
and that is the T, that’s
what is perceived as the T.
And then you round your lips again
and lift the tongue up for another R.
And then again, we have an N sound.
So, lift the tongue up for the N.
And then you stop it
immediately with another T.
Listen to the difference between just an N
and an N that is stopped with the T sound.
So, you kinda like, block
it here in your nose
or in your mouth.
It’s a great restaurant.
I’m at a restaurant right now.
All right, that’s it.
I hope it was helpful.
