source: English Lessons with Alex    2016年7月25日
Do you make these common pronunciation mistakes? Good pronunciation is needed to be understood by native English speakers. In this important lesson you'll have a chance to practice your pronunciation by hearing and repeating vocabulary. I chose words that many of my students pronounce incorrectly in my classes. It doesn't matter if you speak Spanish, Hindi, Portuguese, Hebrew, Arabic, Vietnamese, French, or any other language – there is a good chance you have been pronouncing some of these words incorrectly. Fix these pronunciation mistakes today and you'll get closer to having a native speaker accent, be understood more easily, and sound much more fluent in English!

0:24 We can also get help and motivation from the trainers.
0:28 Today we’ll see some conversations at the gym.
0:31 Let’s listen to the lessons and build up our vocabulary.
0:35 Don’t forget to practice the lines by pausing the lesson and repeating the dialog anywhere you want!

0:45 Time to get started then!
0:53 Hey! My name is Patrick. I’m new to the gym.
0:56 Hey Patrick. I’m Michael. I’m the instructor here. Tell me how can I help you?
1:02 I was wondering if you could suggest some exercises to reduce my love handles.
1:06 Sure. This is a quite common problem among girls too.
1:11 Yeah! I sit all day, and hardly get a chance to exercise.
1:15 Alright! You’ll need to do a lot of cardio to fix that.
1:26 Hi! My name is Patrick.
1:28 Heya, I’m Brian.
1:30 Do you come at the same time everyday?
1:32 Yup. I come directly from my office, so it’s pretty much the same time everyday. What about you?
1:38 Today is my first day at the gym, but I guess I’ll be here at this time every day.
1:42 Alright! Good luck mate. I hope you enjoy your gym time.
1:47 Thanks man! I’ll see you around.
1:49 Of course. I'm sure you will!
1:58 I was wondering if I should get a treadmill at home.
2:01 Well, that’s not a good idea if you’re going to be a regular at the gym.
2:07 I know, but my exercise regime is shot! I skip out too many days.
2:13 That’s not good for you buddy. If you want I can send you reminders about gym-time to your phone.
2:20 Yeah? That’d be great!. Thanks chief!
2:23 No problems mate!
2:31 Dammit Sofia! You’ve lost a lot of weight.
2:33 You think so Patrick? I’ve been working out for a couple of months now.
2:38 You’ve made some fantastic progress! How much have you lost? 10 kilos?
2:42 No, not really. It’s actually 7.
2:46 Well... it has made a hell of a difference to you!
2:49 Thanks Patrick. Alright I better be going. I’ve got some running to do!
2:53 Hey Sofia! Can we go out sometime?
2:56 Maybe Patrick. Goodbye!
3:08 When you stick to something, you don’t give up. You don’t desert it.

4:05 When something is shot, it’s broken. For example if your fridge is shot, it’s not working.
4:12 When your exercise schedule is shot, it means you’re not sticking to it.
4:22 When something changes radically you can informally say there is a hell of a difference in it
4:29  For example,
