Video: When the /tt/ sound is pronounced like a lightly articulated /d/ sound

Hi everyone.   Its been a while since I posted to this  has exploded!  Thanks to all my current and former students for their business.  I'm really happy to be teaching a lot of people and helping them to improve their spoken English.  Once again, if you'd like to reach me, and discuss how I can help YOU improve YOUR spoken English, call me at (732) 807-5424.  Or check out my twitter feed @ The American Idiom of the Day or my website @David Berlin's ESL and Accent Reduction Training.  I have taught other people just like you, and I can teach you and help you.   Give me a call today!

Well, I finally got a videocamera.   At first I didn't think it worked but then I realized that I just needed to replace the batteries.   WOWIE KAZOWIE!  What a difference.  I am going to be shooting a lot of video now and posting it here and on my You Tube channel, which you can find here:  David Berlin's ESL YouTube Channel.

I hope this video is helpful to some of you.  Its about when the /t/ or /tt/ sound is pronounced like a lightly artculated /d/ sound.  I believe there is also a podcast on this topic on the right hand side of this screen.  Podcasts on my blog are working again.

Remember, if you are interested in your free, no obligation phone consult or free trial lesson, give me a call @ (732) 807-5424.  You can also contact me on Skype @ or via email @
