(upbeat music)
00:13
- Hello everyone.
00:14
And welcome back to English With Lucy.
00:17
Let's take a look
00:18
at this word, epiphany.
00:23
It's a particularly beautiful word
00:26
and it holds a lot of meaning for me.
00:29
As defined by Cambridge English dictionary,
00:32
it is a moment when you suddenly feel
00:34
that you understand something that is very important to you.
00:39
I want you to have an epiphany
00:42
when it comes to your English.
00:44
Now, let's look at the pronunciation.
00:49
Epiphany, epiphany,
00:52
you might have seen in my pronunciation videos
00:55
that I use these weird letters.
00:58
These are phonetic transcriptions.
01:01
They are incredibly useful,
01:04
if you know how to read and understand them,
01:07
and they are incredibly useless,
01:09
if you don't know how to use them.
01:12
I have created something big, something important.
01:16
To me, it's the most valuable work
01:19
that I've ever carried out
01:21
throughout my career as a teacher.
01:23
It has taken me two years of hard work.
01:27
I have built a language platform.
01:31
It's called a Epiphany Language Studios, and it's ready.
01:36
I can now announce
01:38
that the first course is waiting for you on the platform,
01:42
and it is the most highly requested
01:45
and anticipated topic in the history of my YouTube channel.
01:50
Never have I received so many requests
01:54
for one specific topic,
01:57
British English pronunciation.
02:00
I need to be very specific here.
02:03
There are so many varieties of British English,
02:07
and none of them are superior.
02:10
In this course,
02:11
I will teach you pronunciation based on the way I speak,
02:15
modern received pronunciation.
02:18
I will teach you to sound natural
02:21
when speaking English.
02:22
You will learn to speak clearly
02:25
and you'll feel more confident and fluent
02:28
when you speak.
02:30
We'll go through every sound
02:32
in modern received pronunciation in detail,
02:36
focusing on mouth shape and tongue position.
02:40
Lift your tongue so that the tip makes gentle contact
02:44
with the underneath of your upper front teeth.
02:49
I'll be right there with you,
02:51
leaving you time and space,
02:53
to copy and imitate my sounds and movements.
02:58
All the vowel sounds,
03:00
all of the consonant sounds,
03:02
you'll master them all,
03:04
you will leave the course
03:06
with the ability to understand
03:08
any phonetic transcription that you might find
03:12
in a British English dictionary.
03:14
That means that you'll be able to look at any word
03:17
and immediately know how to pronounce it.
03:21
We will also analyse connected speech,
03:25
how to link your words together
03:27
and make your sentences flow.
03:30
I'll show you where to emit
03:32
or to leave out certain sounds or syllables.
03:36
We'll look at rhythm, intonation,
03:39
word stress, syllable stress.
03:42
We will of course, take a good look
03:46
at notoriously difficult sounds,
03:49
like the glottal stop, the linking R and the dark L.
03:55
I wanted to ensure
03:56
that I'm providing you, my students,
03:59
with an outstanding pronunciation course.
04:02
So I hired two lecturers in linguistics
04:06
from prestigious English universities,
04:10
to fact check and confirm the course.
04:13
They went through every script that I created,
04:16
every video in the course,
04:18
every single part of the course,
04:21
to fact check it and confirm it all.
04:24
I am so excited and proud to share this with you all.
04:29
I've been making lessons on YouTube for five years
04:32
and I always had the goal of creating a course,
04:36
but, I wanted it to be the best course possible.
04:40
I am so excited to welcome you
04:43
through the doors of Epiphany Language Studios,
04:47
so that you can learn pronunciation with me.
04:50
Go to EpiphanyLanguageStudios.com,
04:54
or click on the link in the description box.
04:58
I will see you on my language platform.
