Hello! Here are the links the to resources mentioned in the video:
Sorry for my terrible pronunciation of the word "vocabulary." This is really embarrassing. Before uploading the video I thought people wouldn't care much about it. Apparently, I was wrong.
As a non-English myself I sometimes cannot understand someone with heavy accents (Indian comes to mind, a lot of great content on computer science in "Indian English accent" that I cannot understand).
In your case I had no problems at all, in fact I came in the comments to praise your pronunciation for I wouldn't realize you were foreign had you not said anything, and I was very surprised too see the complaints.
it's alright bro. Don't feel embarrassed because some idiots don't understand the meaning of accents (and don't even understand that vocabulary has nothing to do with pronunciation). You are cool. I liked the video.
Hi here's a free tool to memorize vocabulary on the fly.
As a developer of this service and a non-native English speaker.
I learn about 200~300 new words monthly during my break time. (15min a day)
Without arranging a specific time to memorize those words.
Hello! Thank you for a helpful video! But I have difficult when I try to translate from English into Vietnamese. I read an English book and it takes a lot of time to translate into my languague! Can you help me? Can you tell me how can I do to translate easily?
Please reply me! Thanks.
P/s: My English isn't good.
Your work is magnificent! I never realized that you're a non-native speaker until you mentioned that. Go ahead and don't worry about the pronunciation of some words because most people, including me, find it hard to reach your level. Thanks a lot!
I've never watched the videos which are so helpful and interesting like yours before. I'm looking for a good way to improve my English after many failed aprroach and now i think you've already given me great ones, even more. Thank you so muchhhhhhhhh
I'm learning English language for more than six months, I'm learning by myself. so I'm watching a lot of English details and when i at work or on a street I only listening and now the result is quite good. I recommend for you all.if you are want this method.
He may not know but some of his resources have virus. I just have some and now I have to fix it. Hope noting gone and everything is still normal. You should double check the link and filed to make sure there aren't any virus. Although I've got some trouble, his advice is good.
I am sorry to ask but do you have any natural inability to speak? I doubt that on such level of knowing the language you would just skip the pronunciation training so am I right? Like I mean if you mentioned that at some point, you would get rid of many comments on that.
It's widely known that you remember hardly anything of what you read. Take it down and everytime try to make an emotional connection to the word, try to use it in other context and get back to the word (as you have it written in your notebook).
You seem to be English as far as I can but this works perfectly also with native words. I was learning my language as well - simply read a lot of books and took down all the words I didn't understand. By the way it's a good thing to read the same book after some time again so you make sure that you meet all the words all over again.
