Learning the American Accent - Lesson 6

Learning the American Accent - Lesson 6

Lesson

Hey guys, 

This is an easy but VERY important lesson.  Whenever you see two "T's" somewhere in the middle of a word, the pronunciation in American English is very much like the "D" sound.  Here are some examples.  It's ALWAYS true with standard US pronunciation.

"Little" should be pronunced "Liddle"

"Butter" should be spoken like "Budder"

"Better" should be pronounced as "Bedder"

These examples are never quite "perfect" but they are very close.  Learn these lessons and also listen carefully to the way Americans really speak. Then you'll really know EXACTLY!  I hope this helps.  Love to hear your comments as always.

Thanks everyone!
