  1. Terrific! I liked this one a lot and I learned so much of course. Knowing that a huge amount of two-syllable words are pronounced with the stress in the first syllable is very helpful as well as useful knowing that English speakers tend to pronounce words putting the stress in the first syllable even when they're three-syllable words…

    Thanks for sharing, hoping to see how beautiful the wedding is going to be…

    Greetings from Dom. Rep.

  2. Please can you help me to speak English like you, can you please because I have problem in hearing please give the steps

  3. Hi Rachel 🙂 How are you? I live in Canada and here people speak American English as well. I mean the way you pronounce 🙂 I have a question. Sometimes, I hear people pronounce some words in a very different way, even I can't find that pronunciation on dictionary.com. For example, they pronounce milk as [me/alk]-not mIlk, also they pronounce mirror as "miar", and meal as "mel". And, sometimes Scissors to "zissors" – not with S sound, Drawer as [Jrawer] Why is that? Did I hear correctly? One more question, in this video you sounded like "Industrial" as InduSHtrial", so is it indus or dush to pronounce?

  4. Hi Rachel, you look so so happy and this place is lovely and romantic! I got my wedding in the church . Thanks so much for this nice video and to share with us about your wedding place. Congratulations  🙂

  8. Although "subordinate" is not a two-syllable word, but i will be happy if you can answer my question. I check it in 2 dictionary EPD of Cambridge and Longman pronunciation dictionary and i have 2 results. /səˈbɔːr.dɪ.nət/ and /səˈbɔːr.dɪ.neit/ and i don't know which is correct? Could you help me?

  9. oh! I have found the answer. /səˈbɔːr.dɪ.nət/ is noun and /səˈbɔːr.dɪ.neit/ is verb so there is a difference of pronunciation between them.

  13. Hi, Rachel! "Thanks so much for"… posting such  great videos!
    I'd like to tell you about my daughter's wedding.
    Lea met a nice american guy three years ago and she lives now in San Francisco with Dan.
    They got married in august, at Tahoe. It's was amazing! The celebration on the beach was very moved : two beautiful newly wedds, two families meeting each other, musician friends (Dan is a musician) playing guitar, childrens throwing petals of flowers, a dazzling sun, a clear water and very friendly speeches! And, of course, the exchange of rings and the kiss …accompanied by applauses and "Vivent les mariés!".
    Dan and Lea ran finally into the lake with their bride and groom clothes!
    A memorable day for all of us!
    I look forward to see news videos about your wedding. Emotions, feelings make us learn deeply  about the life…and the language!
