We’re back with some more words that are
difficult to pronounce in British English. And in American English.
Are you ready to try them? I’m Vicki and I’m British.
And I’m Jay and I’m American. And all the people you’ll meet in this video
come from lots of other countries. English is their second, or third or even
fourth language and we’re going to ask them to pronounce some tricky words.
So let’s get started! Jostle.
Jos – jostle – so difficult! There are two things to remember here. The
word starts with ‘j’ – jostle. So it’s a /d/ and ‘zh’ sound together- ‘j’,
‘j’. And the letter t is silent. We write it but
we don’t pronounce it. Jostle.
Jostle. So what does jostle mean?
If you push roughly against someone in a crowd, you jostle them.
You push or knock them. When I get on the train in rush hour I get
jostled. Say it with our learners
OK, next word. Temperature.
Temperature. Ah nearly.
How many syllables does it have? Temperature.
So it has three syllables. Temp-p(e)ra-ture Temperature
Temperature. And temperature is the measurement in degrees
of how hot or cold something is. For example, the temperature is about 80 degrees today.
He means it’s about 27 Celcius. In the US they still use Fahrenheit to measure temperature.
Yeah, I’m always really hot! Say it with our learners.
Er, temperature. What’s next?
OK, the next word is complicated. Mayor.
That’s nearly right but it has a different vowel sound.
Mayor. That’s better. We pronounce this word in different
ways in the US. Some people say may-or with two syllables. And I say mayor, with one.
What is a mayor? It’s a public official – the head of a
city or town. Like the Mayor of London.
May-or or mayor Mayor.
You don’t pronounce the r sound at the end. Yeah. Unless the next word starts with a vowel,
there’s no R sound for me. Mare. Say it with our learners.
Erm, Mayor. Mayor.
OK, next one. Manoeurvre. That one is French!
Manoeurvre. It’s a French word so… Manoeurvre. French. Whatever.
They’re right, of course. It’s a French word we use in English but we say it differently.
We met one French learner who knew the pronunciation would be different and he had a guess at how
we might say it in English. Manovee? Manovee?
Great guess but he’s completely wrong! Maneuver.
Manoeuvre. You know, I think it’s easier to say this
word if you’re NOT French. Manoeurvre.
Manoeurvre. They were good.
What does maneuver mean? It’s a skillful or careful movement that
we make. For example, I’m very good at maneuvering
our car into tight parking spots. That’s true! He is!
Say it with us. Maneuver.
Manoeuvre. What’s next?
They’re almost right. They just need to change the vowel sound in
the middle. Despicable. Despicable.
What does it mean? Something that’s really bad and not moral
is despicable. A despicable crime.
A despicable person. Say the word with us.
The next word’s hard. The spelling is misleading again.
Have a guess. Er, pneumonia.
Pneumonia. Although I don’t know what’s that. Pneum.. pneumonia.
Pneumon.. pneumonia. Pnu..Pnue… Uh! Pneumonia.
Oh no, they’re all wrong. It’s hard because the spelling is so different
from the pronunciation. The letter p should be silent.
Ah! Pneumonia. Pneumonia.
Pneumonia. They got it!
What is pneumonia? It’s a serious illness that affects your
lungs. It makes it difficult to breathe. You know
we say this word a little differently. Really?
Pneumonia. I say nju – there’s a little y sound.
Pneumonia. And I say nuu. Pneumonia.
Say it with our learners. Pneumonia.
Pneumonia. Pneumonia. Cool!
Next word. Pathetic. Pathetic.
Pathetic. The tricky thing here is the ‘th’ sound.
Yes, it’s not a /t/ sound. It’s ‘th’. Pathetic.
Pathetic. How far should your tongue stick out to make
a th sound? That’s a good question. You don’t want
it going out too far – that’s silly – and you don’t want it back too far either or
you’ll make a /t/ sound. This is a good measure. Just touch your finger
lightly with your tongue. My tongue is down in the middle and I can
feel its sides between the sides of my teeth. And I’m blowing air out. ‘th’, ‘th’. That
does it! Say the word with our learners. Pathetic.
Pathetic. OK, next word.
Our learners were pretty good at this one. Tsunami.
So is it ‘tsunaaami’ or ‘tsunahhhmi’? Tsunami.
Tsunami. It’s ‘tsunahhhmi’.
An ‘ah’ sound. What’s a tsunami? It’s a huge wave in the
sea caused by an earthquake. It’s a Japanese word and it starts with a
Japanese sound – tsu. So a t sound quickly followed by s. tsu. tsu.
Then ‘nah’ then ‘me’. Say it with us. Tsunami.
Tsunami. Let’s have a really hard one now.
OK. Wow! Ubiquitous.
Ubiqui – ubiquitous. Ubiquitous.
It’s very hard! Ubiquitous.
They came very close! Yeah.
What does ubiquitous mean? If something seems to be everywhere, we say
it’s ubiquitous. For example, in Philadelphia there are lots
of stores where you can buy donuts. Yeah, Dunkin’ Donuts are ubiquitous.
And places where you can buy cheesesteaks are very common.
Yeah, they’re ubiquitous too. Cheesesteaks are a Philly dish.
So it starts with a /j/ sound. And it has four syllables. U-bi-quit-ous.
What’s that trick for saying long words? Backchaining.
With a long word it often helps to start at the back and work forward. Try it with me.
-tous. -quit – tous.
So that’s it. But we’ve made lots of other videos about
words that are hard to pronounce. I’ll put a link to the playlist at the end
of this video. We want to say a big thank you to all the
learners who helped us teach these words. They were terrific and it was lovely to meet
them all. If you’ve enjoyed this video please give

hey everyone Jennifer from Tarle Speech
with your reading tip we’re gonna continue today talking about spelling
and how we read words based on how they are spelled to get the correct
pronunciation we have a lot of silent letters in English today and today we’re
actually going to talk about a sound that nnn the n sound and the end sound
is made by placing the tip of your tongue behind the back of your top front
teeth and the air is going to move out of your nose nnn this sound can be
spelled many ways and often involves a silent letter so let’s go ahead and take
a look at all of these variations of how to spell the end sound so these are the
letters that spell the end sound in that we pronounce we see G n in the word gnat and no G just the N for gnat we see KN in the word knight knight KN in knight is
pronounced as the N in night so we have a situation where we have two words
spelled differently but pronounced the same way so knight and night
we have PN in the word pneumonia again no P sound just the N sound in
pneumonia and then lastly we have a double n letter combination and that is
pronounced with one n in the name Ann so again only the n sound gnat knight -night
pneumonia Ann give it a try I know people are going to notice the
difference if you found this video helpful please give us a like and share
it with a friend don’t forget to subscribe leave your comments in the

Hi there. Welcome back to engVid, with me,
Benjamin, your teacher for today. Today we are going to be looking at phrasal verbs to
talk about health, illnesses, and sicknesses; helping you to talk about those things, whether
you’re coming to the U.K. for a visit or whether you’re doing an IELTS speaking, or you just
want to be better generally at English with more phrasal verbs
at your disposal. We are going to start today by playing an
anagram game, just to get your mind thinking so that I know you’re concentrating for the
full duration of the video. A random muddle of letters that you must take letters from
to create your own words. For example, let’s start with: “I” and then you need to create
another word from the letters, so maybe you want to start your next word with a “t”, then
you’ll probably want a vowel, so maybe “a”, oh, there’s a “p”: “I tap”. Okay? I want you
to have a go at this. You’ve got 30 seconds. Try and cross each letter off in your own
mind after you use it, because each letter written there can only be used once. Give
it a go. You have 20 seconds left. And 10. Wrapping it up now, trying to create some
sort of phrase. Five, four, three, two, one. What did you come up with, something good? Was
it about health? Which is today’s lesson. I’ll show you what I came up with. Not: “I tap”,
but: “I p…” No, I don’t relieve myself, but I use another “e” there, then another
“e”. Redeem yourself, Benjamin. Thank you. “I peel o”, I have another “l” there, “old
sc-“, and I have an “a” here, a “b” there, an “s” there: “scab”. If you fall over and
hurt yourself, you might bleed. Your then skin heals itself and you will have what is
called a scab, first word in today’s health lesson. Let’s learn
some phrasal verbs. Well done, you made it back to the second
part of the lesson. So, we have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven phrasal verbs
here, and a few more over there. I’m going to be putting this into the context of my impending,
that means about to happen… “Impending”, I’ll write that down for you. My impending
trip to India. I’m going there on Saturday. So: “come down with”. So, “come” just means,
you know, going somewhere, but if you come down… “Down” and “up” often reflect emotions
in English. If you come down with something, it means you’re coming… You’re picking up
some kind of illness, you become unwell. So: “you come down with” means you get… You get
sick. I hope that I don’t come down with anything when I am there. So after the “with”
you list a general category or you specify what you are coming down with;
a bug, an allergy. Okay. “To be blocked up”, the blockage is referring
to the nose. Okay? Because if you pick up a cold, then you will suddenly have lots of
stuff in your nose, so you don’t want to be blocked up. Okay? “To be blocked up”. I don’t
imagine that I will be blocked up, because “blocked up” we think of more with colds, with
being in a colder place. I’m not expecting to be blocked up
when I am in India. “Throw up”, possibly or “bring something up”.
So, “throw” and “up”, this is a movement coming from your stomach up, up, up, and throw. “Throw
up” is to be sick, hopefully not projectile vomiting. I better write that down as well.
“Pro-… Projectile” means throwing quite a long way. It may be that I throw up if I
get a stomach bug. “To bring something up”, so you’re bringing… It’s like you’re bringing
a nice flower to give to someone, but you’re not bringing up something very nice at all; in
fact it’s quite unpleasant. “Bring something up”, you’re bringing
your food up. “To swell up”, so this we can use to talk
about the sea as well. Okay? When there are big waves, you say: “There’s a big swell”,
it means something getting bigger. To get bigger. If I got bitten by a snake whilst I
was in India, that part of my body would swell up. In the past tense, you would say
it… Something is swollen. Swollen up. Okay. But, because I have strong body, my body has
defences and my body is going to “fight off” any illnesses. Okay? My immune system… The
immune system is your body’s defence. Your body’s defence. My body is going
to fight off any illnesses. You could also “shake off”. Okay? Shake. Dogs
shake to get dry. Okay? So, if you shake off a bug, you’re saying: “Illness, no, no, no,
no. No, thank you. I’m okay. No bug for me. No disease for me.” “To get over something”, okay? So here is…
Here is my something, I’m going to get over it. The something… Oh my goodness me, would
you see that? A misspelling. Bad Benjamin. Note for you to check out my video on praise
and criticism. Slap on the wrist, Benjamin. “Swollen” has a double “l”. Right. “Get over
something”, so the something would be a disease if I became… Or an illness, a sickness. If
I got unwell whilst I was in India, I would need to get over it, I would
need to get better; recover. “To break out into”, so you could… “To break”
means, you know, to smash something. If I was to break out into a dance, it means everything
is still, and then I break the stillness by suddenly dancing. But if I break out into an
illness, suddenly spots would start appearing on my face. “To break out” means to… Well,
to… To change… To change for the worse, really. It’s a bad change. “To put on weight”. We know what weight is, it’s
something heavy. If I was to put on weight, if I was to eat lots and lots and lots of
curries when I was in India, then weight on me, I go: “[Razzes]”. Okay? I would put
on weight. Weight would get on me. “To pack up”. “To pack up”, so when you’re
leaving… Yup. If you’re leaving a place, you pack your suitcase. You put your clothes
in your bag and off you go. It’s the same with your body. If your body is tired and
is fed up, it goes: “That will be enough, thanks, Benjamin. I’m going to pack up now.”
Okay? “I’ve had enough.” So: “to pack up” means sort of give up, break. If your
body packs up, it stops working properly. “To pass out”. So, “out”, we have this idea,
the preposition takes us away from something. Yup. The way out is through the exit. “To pass
out” means if you… If you pass on something, you say: “No thank you, I’m fine. I’ll pass.”
If you pass out, you say: “Thanks, but I’m just going to sort of fall asleep and fall
over on the floor.” Okay? Pass out: “Ooo, bonk”. It means… It’s not fully unconscious,
but it means to… Maybe to momentarily lose conscious in a sort
of non-serious way. “To come around”. This actually happened to
me when I was in India 10 years ago. I hadn’t drunk very much water and I passed out. I then
came around, I then sort of woke up again. I came around, I look around. Okay? And, so
“come around” means to wake up again after passing out, so I’ll
just put: “Wake”. “To patch someone up”. So, if your clothes
have a hole in… Most of mine do. Today’s shirt doesn’t seem to have one. If my shirt
had a patch, I would put something on top of it, like to cover up the hole. It’s the
same with your body. Yeah. After I had passed out, I had hurt my chin. So the doctor needed
to patch me up, put something there, to put maybe a plaster to connect the skin together
again, to heal it, to help it. Okay? Let’s think of: “Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put
Humpty together again.” Well, if they knew how to patch him up, they would have been
able to put him back together again. Rather sad, this one: “pass away”. Okay? So,
again, the idea of: “No, that’s enough”, away, off you go. This is a way of saying “to die”. So,
just put that there to end on a nice cheery note. Okay. Thank you so much for watching today’s
video. My name’s Benjamin. I love engVid; it’s fun. Let’s watch some more.
See you on the next video. Bye.
From VOA Learning English, this is the Health Report in Special English. Health officials in the United States are attempting to contact patients who recently received steroid injections for back pain. That is because the injections may have been carrying a fungus. Thousands of patients may be at risk of developing a rare form of fungal meningitis. Health officials reported Monday that fifteen people had died from fungal meningitis linked to steroid shots. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said said there were more than two hundred confirmed cases of the disease in fifteen states. The majority of the cases were in three states: Tennessee, Michigan and Virginia. Meningitis infects membranes that protect the brain and the spinal cord. There are five kinds of meningitis. Fungal meningitis is the rarest form of the disease. Other forms can result from bacteria, a virus or a parasite. Last Thursday, officials reported that tests ound evidence of the suspect fungus in more than fifty vials of the steroid. They said all those vials were manufactured by the New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts. The company has suspended operations and recalled all of its products for inspection. Compounding or specialty pharmacies often custom-mix medicines at levels, and in forms, that may not be available from other manufacturers. Under Massachusetts law, compounding pharmacies are only permitted to make small amounts of made-to-order prescription drugs. The patients who developed meningitis were being treated for back pain. The Centers for Disease Control says others who received the injections in
others who received the injections in their joints are not thought to be at risk. John Jernigan of the CDC is investigating the meningitis outbreak. CDC is working with state and local health departments to contact patients who may have received injections at the facilities who received received the recalled lots of this medication to inform (them) that they, that they may have been exposed, to find out if they’re having symptoms, and to instruct them to seek health care should they be ill.” Dr. Jernigan says there are many different signs of fungal meningitis. fever “Fever, new or worsening headache, sometimes neck stiffness. We’ve also seen in a few patients signs and symptoms of stroke, sudden onset of slurred speech, dizziness, difficulty walking, sudden weakness.” Health experts say they do not know how many people will actually become sick. They say it could take several months for a fungal infection to develop. And that’s the VOA Special English Health Report. I’m Steve Ember. (November 18, 2012)
