Pronunciation Tips Audio Files

In my book Eliminate the 63 Most Common Mistakes Portuguese Speakers Make in English I have a couple of units showing the most important pronunciation issues for Portuguese speakers.  You read a sample of this book here and the example audio files are below:

Unit 48 pronunciation of ordinal numbers in English [first, second, third, etc] for dates.

 

Unit 62 correct pronunciation of office and practice

 

Unit 63 pronunciation of -ed endings

 

If you haven’t already downloaded my free eBook, Eliminate More Mistakes Portuguese Speakers Make in English, then you can do so by registering your email address here or in the sidebar, or at the bottom of this post if you are viewing this on a phone.

The eBook contains a short section on common pronunciation errors by Portuguese speakers.  Most Brazilians have good pronunciation and in general there isn’t a problem but people do get worried about it.  The examples I have in my free eBook come from my notes in classes so they are genuine examples of errors that people that speak Portuguese make.  If you are striving for proficiency or are concerned about your pronuniction then these examples are worth practising, however the most important ones are the 3 units above.

So here are some audio files to help you:

    Hi Geraldo.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. Everything is fine when I try it on Google Chrome and Firefox, you need to click on the left side of each audio to play them. Unfortunately, this button isn’t visible, it is just to the left of the “00:00” timer.

    Thanks.

    Gordon
