  • Bitches or Beaches? English Pronunciation Video

    In the last two years, many students of my online English classes have asked me how to be sure they correctly the words bitches or beaches and shits or sheets. To non-native speakers the words can sound similar, but they know that the words have quite different meanings. In the video below, I talk to Frank about the difference.

     

    How to make sure you don’t make the pronunciation mistake? Sheet and Beach are long E sounds. If you smile when you say Beach and Sheet you will pronounce it correctly. Pull back your lips into a big smile and say bEAch emphasizing the middle sound of E.

    The opposite is true if you want to or need to say shit or bitch. Press your lips together like a kiss and say them. Put the emphasis on the T sound biTCH or shiT.

    Follow these pronunciation tips and you will never be embarrassed about asking for shits at a hotel or asking where the best bitches are when on vacation.
