Difficulty: 0

hey all right hello and welcome good

morning good afternoon or good evening

good night I don't know whatever time of

the day it is wherever you're at but

today my name is Wes from interactive

English and today I want to go over a

fun pronunciation lesson with you about

edie endings most specifically talking

about verbs regular verbs that are

ending with the e D so if you have any

questions or comments write them in the

chat and we will try to answer them

alright so the first thing that you

might be wondering is why the heck

should I care about these two little

letters well let me tell you the first

reason is because well we you know we

think you guys are really cool we want

you to stay looking cool when you're

speaking English and we don't want you

to make these simple little mistakes

where people are going to be like wait

what what what did they just say and

this is something that is applicable to

all English learners whether you are a

beginner learner an intermediate learner

or an advanced learner this is when it

comes to e d endings these are mistakes

that I hear people make all the time and

they're not like you know they're not

like huge mistakes that look people are

like well I just don't understand you

it's more just small things that impede

people's fluency and I know that people

want to improve their pronunciation they

might want to reduce their accent a

little but the most important thing is

that we communicate and communicate

clearly and learning these edie endings

and knowing how to use them and what the

correct pronunciation is is just going

to help you become a more capable and

confident speaker and improve your

overall fluency so again if you're just

joining us right now please write any

questions comments in the chat I'm going

to go over

a few different slides with you if you

will I want to talk to you about the

rules for edy endings because you know

we must have rules and then I'm going to

do show you some sentences we'll read

those and then we're going to do it

practice and you will need to engage and

write your answers in the comments and

then at the final at the end of the

video or the end of the lesson I'm going

to show you a couple of different ways

that you can take what we've learned

here today and continue practicing on

your own so we're going to talk about

the pronunciation of these IDI endings

and because let's see let me go over

again tell you give you an example of

why this is important so for example I

remember like like I said it's important

for all students I remember teaching a

level of advanced students and when you

go over this information we would go

over this information together and it

you know talk about it practice it and

everybody would do a really good job

because we're focusing on the

pronunciation the challenge is when

you're just having a normal natural

free-flowing conversation and you're not

trying to think about the rules of

pronunciation and you might make small

mistakes so for example I remember

speaking to somebody and they would say

you know last night

I walk it to the store and I understood

what they were saying but again you kind

of did that double take we're like wait

a second did they just say walk it it's

just mispronouncing that IDI ending

which impedes fluency so let's get the

ball rolling and begin again I know I'm

going to reiterate if you're just

joining us you know stick around we're

talking about

edie endings right any questions you

have in the comments and if you guys

haven't already and you're here and you

found us please subscribe to our Channel

and also a huge favor if you guys will

you can share

this video with your friends your family

your boyfriend your girlfriend your

grandparents you know who knows maybe

they are your grandparents or on YouTube

who knows so let's start out and talk

about the rules of these edy endings

okay so here we have a list of rules

about how to determine and decide you

know what type of edy ending you should

use as well as the different sounds they

should make so when you're talking about

these regular verbs in the simple pass

because they all end with Edie Edie Edie

Edie you need to think about the final

sound of the word

more specifically the final consonant

sound of the word forget about spelling

it has nothing to do with spelling it's

more about that final sound and that's

going to help you determine the sound of

the Edie alright is it going to have

that T sound that to the D sound the DA

or the ED sound the and if you're

wondering again you can look right here

to find all that information that I am

talking about so it is all about the

final sound of that word and then once

you identify the final sound you'll know

okay the Edie is going to have the T the

D or the it'd so the first thing that we

need to do is determine if that final

sound is voiceless or if it's voiced now

a lot of you some of you may be asking

yourselves well what does it mean

voiceless and voice and that is a good

question so let's start and look at

voiceless so voiceless means that there

is no no vibration in the vocal cords

and your vocal cords are right here

okay that the sound is coming you know

through your your vocal cords and then

out your mouth and there is no vibration

back and forth so one way to determine

about whether there's a vibration or not

is just to take you know your two

fingers put them right here on your

vocal cords and then if you're just

talking maybe you're reading out loud

saying anything you'll be able to feel a

difference between some of the sounds

you're making and the other sounds

whether they're voiceless and you can't

feel anything or they are voiced and you

can feel that vibration so voiceless

means there's no vibration some of the

letters that that make this sound are

the ones that I have again right there

the letters P if you did that put plus

sound you can put your fingers there and

make the sound puh puh puh and you're

not going to feel a vibration the

letters K ku ku ku F s and X the six

that sound those are all voiceless

sounds that do not vibrate in your vocal

cords

so if you know that that is the final

sound of the word and it is voiceless

then that IDI is going to have the T

sound okay the IDI is going to have the

T sound so for example I gave you some

words down there below as well as that

beautiful lovely drawing right there

showing that the sound is traveling up

right through your mouth no vibration so

looks look at like help alright the last

sound the final sound is that P sound

help so we know it's going to have the T

and we can pronounce it helped helped

alright I'm going to emphasize it a

little and exaggerate it so you guys can

hear helped the next one walk cook cook

that K sound voiceless walked all right

walked next one laugh that G H has the F

sound again which is voiceless left left

left

and then the last one ooh kiss

all right s voiceless kissed all right

kissed so we know that these these verbs

that I just show you helped walked

laughed kissed they are all the final

sound is voiceless so the IDI has that T

sound all right so now again if you're

just joining us or you're kind of tuning

in hanging out you know we are working

on voiced and voiceless sounds so if you

have any questions write them in the

chat and then we're going to do a

practice so we just talked about

voiceless sounds and that again has the

T sound the IDI is going to have that T

sound now if we're talking about voiced

sounds right here it's basically it's

just the opposite all right in the vocal

chords right here you're going to feel

that vibration with these sounds again

look at that beautiful lovely picture

that I put together down on the bottom

there you can see the sound vibrating

back and forth and this vibration in the

vocal cords you can feel it if you put

your fingers right here and we're going

to look at those letters right here and

make those sounds and you'll feel it so

B is a voiced sound if you had

buh-buh-buh g googa googa l so you can

feel the difference if you have like the

the L sound ooh you can feel that

vibration and you compare it to the S

which is voiceless

whoo sounds a little crazy but you can

really feel the difference these other

letters n M those are also sounds

that are voiced alright are V alright V

and Z these are voice sounds which means

if their voice then the e D is going to

have the D sound

okay so voiceless the T sound voiced the

D sound so let's look at these examples

so that first verb is you know rub

rubbed all right B is the but it's

voiced rubbed alright call called

alright L is a voice sound so we use the

D for the Edie called cleaned loved all

right I'll say this again it rubbed

called cleaned loved again we're talking

about Edie sounds another thing that

will help you guys practice if you want

to turn this into another interactive

activity you can just repeat the words

that I'm saying so this becomes more

shadowing you're listening to my

pronunciation and then trying to say it

exactly as I do all right

rubbed called cleaned loved all right

you should hear that D sound at the end

of those regular verbs okay so we've

talked about you know voiceless which

has the T sound at the end and voiced

which has the D sound okay there is one

more sound that it can make alright and

that is this one which is the it'd sound

and this makes perfect sense as to why

we have another final sound all right

because when the final sound is a T or D

it's going to have this eed sound all

right and the reason is because we're

already using that T and D sound for

voiceless and voiced verbs all right so

if we have we can't have two T sounds in

a row so for example want

ends with a T so the T sound so we're

going to have it's going to have that it

wanted we can't have the want to titta

to alright because T is a voiceless

sound same with need its voice you can't

have those 2d sounds in a row that

needed it alright so that is why if it

ends with a T or D sound it's going to

have the it'd which is basically going

to add one more syllable to the word and

a syllable is just a unit of sound so

all of these like want alright it's one

syllable and we know this we can put our

finger we want however many times your

tin touches your hand

that's a syllable that's a unit of sound

so want Ted

it adds an additional syllable that it

wanted and this is actually a common

thing this is where I would hear a lot

of learners make a mistake they'll add

an it to either a voiceless or voice

sound when it's not needed and it's only

necessary with the T or the D so we have

these sounds again you can repeat after

me wanted needed waited blended and

ended I could say them faster wanted

needed waited blended ended all right

you can hear that it it it it wanted

needed blend though want it needed

waited blend it ended all right all of

those that did final sound because the

verbs final sound is either a T or ad so

we are just to review because we're

talking about the IDI endings mostly

with these are all simple past regular

verbs we have the voiceless which is the

T sound all right

helped walked laughed kissed all right

if the final sound is voiced where the

IDI will have the D sound

called cleaned loved and if the final

sound ends with either T or D then it's

going to have the ED sound wanted needed

waited blended and did okay so those are

the rules for determining the IDI

pronunciation and I think they're pretty

kind of straightforward it's really just

knowing the difference between voiced

and voiceless and we can use our vocal

chords to decide that so let's look at

some sentences because this is like I

said before this is where I think a lot

of learners have difficulty whereas we

can do a practice and you're learning

this and you know oh okay I understand

the rules that makes sense it's fine I

can listen for it and then I can say it

the difficulty comes when you are

actually again just having that normal

conversation and you're not even

thinking about pronunciation rules so I

wanted to practice a little with these

sentences so I have four sentences for

you about that picture right here the

beautiful sunset all right so these

sentences are about the picture and I

want you to look at the first one which

is up there okay and there are three IDI

words that I've highlighted in blue I

want you to think about their ending and

then I'm going to read the sentence and

you can listen for it and then we'll

kind of dissect each one and and talk

about them a little bit so think about

the final sound of those words after the

rules that we just went over and think

about the sounds alright and again if

you're just joining us that's okay we're

talking about

edie endings and you can listen for that

final sound it's either going to have a

T sound a D sound or an eID sound okay

so the first verbs alright I'll read the

sentence so you can hear me we waited

and watched a

as the Sun descended we waited and

watched as the Sun descended so the

first one wait it has that T sound so we

know that it's going to the e D is going

to be an it waited we waited and watched

cha-cha-cha it's voice list so the e D

is going to sound like a T watched we

waited and watched as the Sun descended

again the D is the final sound so it's

going to have the it at the end

descended all right we waited and

watched as the Sun descended the next

sentence what do you guys think all

right there are three more words I want

you to just think about the final sound

and then you know what what is the you

know what's the e D sound what sound is

it going to make all right let me read

it I'll read it for you then you can

listen alright make sure you you've

identified them correctly we marveled as

it splashed into the ocean and then

disappeared we marveled as it splashed

into the ocean and then disappeared so

the first word marvel little it's voiced

the L sound so we use it D marveled we

marveled as it splashed splashed that

Shh is voiceless so we use the T sound

we marveled as it splashed into the

ocean and then disappeared disappeared

with the D because R is the final sound

and that is I can't hear you so yeah

voiced it's a voice sound alright and

then disappeared alright next sentence

right here is where we are at we're

talking about this sentence two words

one of them is a verb the other is an

adjective it's an e d adjective follows

the same rules with adjectives there are

a few exceptions which we will not get

into right now but look at those words

alright and think what is the ending

alright listen to me say we enjoyed the

V

and we were utterly amazed we enjoyed

the view and we were utterly amazed so

the first word enjoy and this is

something that I didn't mention before

oi oi is an actual it's a vowel sound so

if the word ends in a vowel sound then

we're going to Edie is going to have a D

sound enjoyed we enjoyed the view and

were utterly amazed the Z is voiced so

it is the D sound we enjoyed the view

and we were utterly amazed again if you

guys have any questions just write them

in the comments part of it alright and

if you're just joining us welcome

welcome we're going to do a practice

here in a second with E D adjectives are

adjectives herbs actually so let's look

at the last sentence alright right here

last sentence how would you say those

two verbs alright how are you going to

pronounce the e D alright

the day ended and we traveled home okay

and it ends with the D sound so we're

going to have the it'd ended ended the

day ended and we traveled l Lu is voiced

we travelled home so again that's going

to have the d traveled alright so that's

a quick practice with those sentences

and you know it's a good way to continue

practicing to identify they not only

identify the sounds but just keep

practice saying them alright so before

we do our practice I'm going to give you

some words just to review it really

depends on whether it's voiced or

voiceless that final sound if it's

voiceless it's going to have the T sound

and remember we how do we determine that

if there's vibration in the vocal cords

no vibration its voiceless and the T

sound if we're there is a vibration back

and forth the

but mmm those sounds we're going to use

the D for the IDI and if it if the final

sound is a T or a D sound then we're

going to add that extra syllable that it

wanted needed weight tip blended and did

okay so what I want to do right now is

I'm going to give you a word okay and

what I want you to do is you are going

I'm going to give you a word I'm going

to say it so this is a listening

activity and I want you to listen for

the final sound and in the comments I

want you to write is it 80 ad or an e d

downed which sound are you hearing with

these words okay so the first one let's

do is this okay I'll say the word and

then I want you to write the answer in

the comment exercised all right I'll say

it again a few times exercised yesterday

we exercised and we went running

alongside the river we exercised okay

listen to that last sound alright is it

TD or it exercised write them in the

comments okay which sound do you hear

exercised all right hopefully remember

exercise even though it's spelled with

an S it's the Z sound that it's voiced

so because of that exercise you should

have said D D is the answer all right

exercised all right let's look at

another one another one that we have for

you right here let's see

this word alright accepted what sound do

you hear when I say this word accepted

is that Edie does it have the T the D or

the ED sound remember you want to

identify the words final sound except

what's the final sound it is a T so

again if it's a T sound then the Edie

accepted accepted will have that ed

sound that is what you should write in

the comments this is the answer accepted

alright let's look at another one

all right how about this word all right

what is the final sound danced okay

danced what is the final sound danced

that you hear danced all right

the Edie sound because again dance it

ends at that S sound that's its

voiceless so danced can you hear it

it ends with this sound that T alright

danced all right last night we danced

all night you want and I danced at the

club not true we watched a movie again

with the T sound watched all right

the next word let's go let's try this

one how about hoped all right

hoped what is the final sound you hear T

D or it remember again the rules for

this you have to think of the final

sound don't worry about spelling don't

you

see that you know hoped all right

it ends with the P sound which is

voiceless so the P sound is voiceless

which means you should in the comments

write T hoped all right

hoped again it'll help if you're you're

somewhere and you want to practice just

repeat the words after me hoped hoped

all right it's going to help you

remember this stuff next time you're

speaking or reading and you'll start to

you know become more proficient so next

one all right I'm going to try and give

you a more difficult one so look at this

word all right what is the final sound

tried tried remember I told you that try

that I is the long I sound

it's a vowel sound if it's a vowel sound

alright the IDI is going to sound like

tried alright tried whoops not the e the

D alright tried alright this one this

this regular verb in the simple past has

the D sound at the end tried okay let's

do another one

how about um

this word all right in the comments I

want you to write is it TD or it visited

visited in the comments right what is

the final Esau visited do you hear that

is the IDI do you hear the T sound the D

sound or the it visited visited alright

visited the final sound of the word is

the T visit remember if it ends with the

T or D sound we're going to use the it

so boom visit did okay hmm

visit tid has that extra syllable at the

end alright next one let's do this one

okay we spurred whispered what is the

final sound that you hear write it in

the comments because we want you to make

this interactive get some practice in

there so this is good listening practice

for you guys you want good speaking

practice

say the words after me say I'm out loud

I don't care where you're at

whispered whispered so again whisper or

ends with the

it's voiced so it's going to end

whispered you should write D whispered

alright

the IDI has that D sound whispered heard

whispered okay next one how about this

one

there we go switch it up don't let that

Y fool you say the word alright say it

without the e D and then that'll help

you identify that final sound stay now

how do you say it in the past does the e

d have the t the D or the it'd write it

in the comments stayed I'll say it

stayed stayed stayed yesterday we stayed

over at a friend's house we stayed it

ends with a vowel sound that a that long

a and remember that's a rule if it ends

with that vowel sound it's going to have

the e D is going to have the D sound

stayed okay stayed next one let's do

some more um next one I'm going to give

you hmm

so this word land alright you know if

you're flying in an airplane room you're

having a conversation you're using it in

the past you're going to say this word

landed mmm landed landed we landed at

five o'clock we landed yesterday at five

o'clock that's when our plane landed is

it the t the D or the it don't be shy

write them in the comments if you're

just joining us we're doing a little

practice right here with the e d the

final II D sound I want you to write is

do you hear that is that final sound is

it a TD or it landed okay landed for

this word you should write the it land

did land ends with the D sound so we're

going to add that it at the end land did

landed our plane landed at five o'clock

next one and this is like one I don't

know why what it is about this one I

commonly hear it mispronounced this is

one this is a verb that people like to

throw the wrong end on it walked all

right

walked it's not walk kid no no no no no

no no no no walked all right we walked

to the store we walked to the mall we

walked downtown we walked to the movies

what is the final sound you hear write

it in the comments walked all right

you should write final sound T sound

walked all right walked walked walked

you try saying it walked walked walked

walked walked walked walked all right

you're going to say that T sound at the

end um let's do a few more how about

let's do dried dried which sound you

hear at the end write it in the comments

do it do it again you can even practice

if you're watching this video later on

still write the answers in the comments

just keep comment and use it like it's a

your own chalkboard or something and

just keep writing the answers and

practicing because again the idea for

this is for not only for you to listen

to what I'm saying is to try to produce

the language and actually become engaged

in what's happening so to ride what is

the final sound is it t d or e d all

right dry to remember it ends with I

that I sound dry which is a vowel sound

which means that the final sound is a D

sound all right

again we're not it's not that eed we're

not adding an additional syllable it's

still one syllable dried dried all right

it's just that D sound at the end next

um let's try this one alright worried

worried I was worried about you what

sound do you hear at the end write it in

the comments I was worried about you I

don't know why that just was okay

worried you should write for this one

worried whoops sorry

the D sound at the end worried worried

all right next one let's do one more and

I'll give you guys some tips

how about okay oh this one right here

dropped all right I dropped the pen

dropped what's the sound dropped all

right do you hear the T the D or the it

dropped okay you should write for this

one the T sound dropped okay does that

make sense so remember again there are

three rules that you just need to

remember and again if you're joining us

a little late I'll go over those rules

really quickly right now and then I want

to tell you how you guys can do some

self study on your own to continue

practicing this so remember if if the

final sound we need to identify the

final sound of the word if it's

voiceless all right we're going to add

the T dropped all right P is voiceless

put put put

dropped okay if it's a voice sound which

means there is vibration in the vocal

cords we're going to add a D sound okay

call call the alright and then finally

if the final sound is that T or D sound

then we're going to add an eID to it you

can look at those words again those are

good examples and they're very common

verbs wanted needed waited blended and

did okay so those are the rules on and

then you just need to internalize the

information and what I mean by that is

you really do need to practice on your

own because that is going to help you

alright

you practice on your own and the more

you do that the more you're listening to

it the more you're saying it especially

correctly you will internalize that

information because the goal is to not

think about these pronunciation rules

the goal is just to speak and when

you're having a conversation that you're

pronouncing these words that end with

Edie and you're using the correct

pronunciation so the first way I would

say that you guys could practice at home

one easy way is just to listen to it

alright and you could listen to a story

whether it's a podcast in the simple

past or even songs so for example here

this website right here I kind of just

did a google search and it says seven

songs for teaching past simple it gives

you the song alright even tells you some

of the verbs that are in the past simple

so this one expected alright

closed and these are all pretty I think

they're they're common songs I don't

popular songs pop music not sure what

you'd like to listen to but these are

ways that you can continue to expose

yourself to the correct pronunciation

sing along with them here's a Katy Perry

song planned all right

this is another song wow this is pretty

old from a while back torn but it has a

lot of good ones you know showed all

right adored changed crawled because

when you're doing this you're just

listening to it whether it's music

whether it's TV whether it's movies

it'll you're receiving the information

all right and you're listening to it

here's another song somebody that I used

to know happened all right so this is

one way that I would say that you guys

can do it is just listening to a variety

of things hopefully many of you already

watching a lot of movies and English TV

shows listening to music I think

subtitles also help so again you can try

to then identify those IDI words with

the sounds that you're hearing and then

once you start to internalize it

practice practice practice you'll just

start speaking correctly and saying the

words correctly without even thinking

about it another thing that you guys can

do is okay reading all right read

outloud this is a good way to practice

actually speaking and trying to say

these words correctly so I just did

again google search for English

paragraph simple past okay first one

that came up here story is written in

the past tense for ESL learners all

right these are probably for some of you

depending on your level they might be

very basic stories but but that's okay

because the idea the goal is to practice

the simple past so what you can do is if

you have a story such as this they've

highlighted some of these verbs all

right you can then look at the word

think of the rule think of the

pronunciation that you're going to reuse

miss all right is voiceless so it's

going to have the T sound missed all

right and then just start reading I only

missed the train by a few minutes

I was annoyed if I had walked a bit

further again now we're practicing the T

sound

and there's other stories down here

below again some of these verbs are

irregular but others are regular verbs

in the simple past watched and this is

just one source there's a bunch of

different stories that you guys could

probably find and come up with that is

going to help you practice speaking when

you read out loud then you are actually

saying these words and you're saying

them correctly so that when you're just

having that informal conversation you're

not thinking about pronunciation rules

you're just speaking and because you've

internalized all this information you're

saying the words correctly so those are

a couple different exercises and

activities that you can do for

self-study that will help you perfect

this IDI pronunciation and again this is

something that no matter what level you

are that people tend to make sometimes

very very very simple mistakes so even

if you've already studied this even if

all you've already learned these rules

it's still good practice to review so

that you don't make mistakes in the

future so again if you have any

questions thoughts ideas please write

them in the comments and we will try to

answer your questions if you haven't

already subscribed to our channel you

can also check us out on social media

we're pretty active on Facebook

Instagram Twitter and snapchat and thank

you guys for for tuning in I really had

a lot of fun hope you enjoyed the lesson

hope you learned something new and if

you did share it with everybody you know

please we'll do more of these lessons a

little later on and we'll probably

announce them when we'll do it so you

guys will have an idea but again thanks

for watching and we will see you next

time
