In a Jiffy

Learn the phrase "in a Jiffy" in just a few minutes. This conversation simulation will help you to see just how we use the common English phrase, in a jiffy. A conversation simulation is the closest you can get to a real live conversation with a native English speaker. You will hear how a native English speaker might respond to a series of questions or statements and can practice your own speaking when working your way through this conversation. Conversations simulations are created using the latest e-learning technology and can give you a learning experience unlike anything you can find in a book, and quite unlike most of the material you find on other English learning websites.

Pronunciation Activation Pack 25 - The / d / in Duck

Activate the consonant sound / d / in Duck. In this Pronunciation Activation Pack we will be looking at the consonant sound / d /. We will look at the letter combinations that give the / d / sound. We will look at lots of words which have the / d / sound in them. Finally, we will activate your ability to hear and produce the / d / sound correctly. The / d / sound is a voiced alveolar plosive made by blocking the air flow with the tongue on the alveolar ridge and then releasing it explosively. The / d / sound on the chart is shown in green, which means that it is voiced. Each of the consonant sounds on the first two rows of consonants make up an unvoiced and a voiced pair. The only difference between the unvoiced and voiced pairs is the use of the vocal cords while saying them. Pronunciation Activation Pack 25 - The / d / in Duck

You're in Trouble

I haven't always been an English teacher. Indeed, I have done quite a few jobs, including two stints as a police officer. When I look back on my days as a police officer, I can recall many incidents that I'd like to share with you as anecdotes to help you develop your reading, listening comprehension, and vocabulary skills. Today's anecdote is about an incident I dealt with while working on my beat in the small village of Saint Martins, in Shropshire, England. I was, at the time, the village policeman, and spent my days driving around my beat in my trusty old Land Rover. It was a very sleepy village, and exciting incidents were few and far between. I should warn you that the incident I'm about to relate to you is not particularly exciting. Nevertheless, it's certainly one incident in my policing career that I shall never forget.

We will look at lots of words which have the / b / sound in them. Finally, we will activate your ability to hear and produce the / b / sound correctly. The / b / sound is a voiced bilabial plosive made by completely blocking the air flow with the lips and then releasing it explosively.

The only difference between the unvoiced and voiced pairs is the use of the vocal cords while saying them. Pronunciation Activation Pack 23 - / b / in Bubble
