Today I have a pronunciation lesson for you.

I know that you’ve been paying attention to your speech, and have been trying to apply my tips as you speak English.

But what happens when you’re doing really well while practicing but you are unable to replicate your pronunciation success when speaking??

Today, as I teach you how to pronounce the W and V (and how not to confuse them), I will also talk about how to use what you learn and practice in a conversation, in the most effective way.

So even if the W and V are not challenging for you, you will still find this lesson useful to watch:)

  1. I loved your video, Hadar. I do not know why but I cannot pronounce the word ” video” , and I get scared when I see ” the” in front of it : “The video “.

  2. Hi Hadar !
    Thank you for the great video ! It is really of highest quality ! It teaches and delights at the same time. This playful teaching enables an up to date, effective and pleasurable learning.
    I regret that owing to my chronically sick vocal forming system I can’t benefit from it although it is a great pleasure for me to watch your videos. (At present, e.g. due to a relapse of the acute inflammation I should reduce my daily speaking time even using my mother tongue.) Nevertheless, thank you so much for supplying me with your so valuable videos.
    My best wishes,
    Laszlo Latzkovits

  3. Hi Miss Hadar, thanks for the video, i have a problem pronouncing V and F. Instead of Vacuum i pronounce it as favuum.

  4. Hello Hadar,
    I love your videos and your course Accent Makeover. They are helping me out to improve my pronunciation, and I hope to get more fluent in the next few months.
    I have some problems when it comes to the transition before and after “of” with some letters, e.g., “project of the….”. Could you recommend some exercises to flow better in these transitions?
    Thank you so much for all your tips and pieces of advice.
    Warm regards
    Mercedes

  5. Thank you Hadar. You probably have noticed that I don’t use to leave comments. This happens because I don’t have enough free time. So, I rather prefer to practice the lessons than to be sending emails and posting comments. However, I must recognize that every day I am progressing more and more. I was ready to improve my English pronunciation, with your Accent Makeover course. However, I was not prepared for the rest: I am greatly impressed with the avalanche of tips and resources that you are giving to us always. There is no time to get bored, there is no repetition, and you explain everything in such a simple and direct way that it is impossible to forget it. Thank you for all the time and efforts you are dedicating to us.

  6. Hey Hadar.

    Sincerely yours Jeff.

  7. Hi Hadar

    I learnt words how to pronounce but actually while speaking, I have to keep reminding my mind o pronounce like American accent and not the way I used to speak for so many years….

    How can I practice to improve my accent while speaking and moreover it should come out naturally . I really learnt so much watching your videos and really appreciate your videos but still I need someone to improve my accent when I pronounce incorrect.

    Have a great day

    Thanks $ Regards
