‘TH [unvoiced], F, S'. ‘TH [voiced], V, Z'. ‘Six texts'. ‘vuh-vuh-vei', ‘vuh-vuh-vei'. ‘voi, voi, voi'. ‘Should we go?' ‘Eddie edited it'.

Hey, it's Hadar, and welcome to my sprint. A sprint is a 10-minute exercise that I've developed, aimed at helping you boost your pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary through consistent repetition. And it is based on my Pronunciation Confidence Method. Let's get started.

‘th – f – s'. Stick the tongue out – th; bring the bottom lip up – f; s – bring the tongue up inside your mouth. ‘th – f – s'.

Now let's move on to ‘th – v – z'. Same positions: tongue out – th; lip up – v; z – tongue up inside the mouth, but this time it's voiced. So again – ‘th – v – z'.

Now we're going to move on to practicing diphthongs. Diphthongs are changing vowels. Let's begin with /ai/, and we'll use it with the ‘v' sound. ‘vuh, vuh, vai', ‘vuh, vuh, vai', ‘vuh, vuh, vai'.

/ei/ –  ‘vuh, vuh, vei', ‘vuh, vuh, vei', ‘vuh, vuh, vei'.

/oʊ/ – ‘vuh, vuh, vow', ‘vuh, vuh, vow', ‘vuh, vuh, vow'. ‘vow, vow, vow, vow, vow, vow'. Very good.

/ɔɪ/ – ‘voi, voi, voi, voi, voy, voi'.

/æʊ/ – as  a “now”. ‘vaw, vaw, vaw, vaw, vaw, vaw'. Good.

Take a deep breath in, breathe out. Let's move on.

Tongue twisters. “Eddie edited it”. “Eddie edited it”. ‘e-dee e-duh-duh dit', ‘e-dee e-duh-duh dit', ‘e-dee e-duh-duh dit'. Good.

Let's move on to tricky transitions. ‘through and through', ‘through and through', ‘through and through'.

‘six texts', ‘six texts', ‘six texts', ‘six texts', ‘six texts'.

‘of the month'. ‘of the month', ‘of the month', ‘of the month', ‘of the month'. ‘the sixth of the month, the sixth of the month, the sixth of the month, the sixth of the month'.

Let's practice transitions where there is an R, a flap T and an R.

‘order, order, order, order, order'. ‘border, border, border, border, border'. ‘charter, charter, charter, charter, charter'.  ‘quarter, quarter, quarter'. ‘porter, porter, porter, porter, porter, porter'. You can do it.

‘smarter, smarter, smarter, smarter, smarter, smarter'.

Good. Let's move on to drilling and practicing the -ED suffix. The -ED suffix can sound like a /t/ sound when it's after a voiceless consonant; like a /d/ sound when it's after a voiced consonant; or like an /əd/ when it's after a T or a D. Let's practice it.

‘worked, worked, worked, worked, worked, worked'. ‘focused, focused, focused, focused, focused, focused'. ‘locked, locked, locked, locked, locked, locked'.

Now a /d/ sound: ‘hugged, hugged, hugged, hugged, hugged'. ‘robbed, robbed, robbed, robbed, robbed'. ‘begged, begged, begged, begged, begged'.

Now /əd/: ‘waited, waited, waited, waited, waited, waited'. ‘needed, needed, needed, needed, needed, needed'. ‘granted, granted, granted, granted, granted, granted'.

Intonation. Yes/no questions. Rising-rising intonation: “Did you see that? Did you see that? Did you see that?”

“Would you like a cup of coffee? Would you like a cup of coffee? Would you like a cup of coffee?”

“Should we go? Should we go? Should we go? Should we go? Should we go?”

Now WH questions. Listen to the intonation. “Where's your house? Where's your house? Where's your house? Where's your house? Where is your house?”

“What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing?”

“How do you know that? How do you know that? How do you know that? How do you know that?”

Vocabulary. “go over”, /ɡoʊ ˈoʊvər/. ‘go over, go over'. To go over something is to look at something really carefully and deeply. ‘go over, go over, go over, go over, go over, go over'.

“We need to go over the proposal tomorrow. We need to go over the proposal tomorrow. We need to go over the proposal tomorrow. We need to go over the proposal tomorrow”.

“I need to go over my lines for the play. I need to go over my lines for the play, so I don't forget. I need to go over my lines for the play. I need to go over my lines for the play”.

“Let's go over the rules once again. Let's go over the rules once again. Let's go over the rules once again. Let's go over the rules once again”.

Grammar. Let's practice Present Perfect sentences – something that happened in the past, but we don't know exactly when, and maybe it doesn't even matter.

“I've never been there. I have never, I've never, I've never, I've never been. I've never been. I've never been. I've never been.” “I've never been there. I've never been there. I've never been there. I've never been there.”

“She's lived here all her life. She's lived. She's lived, she's lived, she's lived, she's lived.” “She's lived here all her life. She's lived here all her life. She's lived here all their life. She's lived here all her life.”

“What have you done? What have you done? What have you done?” “have you done, have you done, have you done.” “What have you done? What have you done? What have you done? What have you done?”

“I've seen that movie. I've seen, have seen, have seen, I've seen, I've seen, I've seen, I've seen.” “I've seen that movie. I've seen that movie. I've seen that movie.”

“She's seen, she's seen, she's seen, she's seen, she has seen, she's seen that movie. She's seen that movie. She's seen that movie. She's also seen that movie. She's seen that movie. She's seen that movie. She's seen that movie. She's seen that movie.”

That's it. Let's do a lip trill together. Massage your jaw a little bit, and hum.

Put your hand on your belly. Take a deep breath in, breathe out, take a deep breath in, breathe out. Say something kind to yourself about your English. Take a deep breath in, breathe out.

Okay, that's it. Thank you so much for watching. I hope you enjoyed it. Go rest your lips and tongue. And once you are done write in the comments “done” so I know that you did it.
