New on YouTube! Native English speakers, especially Americans, generally like a smooth flow of air to come out when they are speaking. The words of a phrase or a sentence tend to flow into each other without a break in the sound or the flow of air. Technically, this is is called liaison and in everyday English we called it blending or reduction. In this lesson, we will look at the natural American English pronunciation of:
I was up until 12 last night…which sounds like…I wuh-zuh-pun-til 12 lah-snight Check it out!

Everything Your GRAMMAR BOOK Didn’t Teach You
Yes, your grammar book probably taught you the difference between during and while, but it probably didn’t teach you how we actually use those words in everyday English. This book does!
You’ll also learn how to really use phrases such as:
- By Friday and Until Friday
- In the end and At the end
- I’m bored and I’m boring
- Even if and Even though
- Just and Only
- Much and Many
- Stop doing it and Stop to do it…and so much more!
You’ll also learn how to use causatives, conditionals, frequency adverbs, modal verbs, articles, and prepositions.
