I always recommend 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' (https://goo.gl/7vGLDY) as it is written in the first person from the point of view of an autistic teenager and it does not use very complicated language. Some of it is also based in London which I like. - Can you recommend a British TV Series for me to watch and improve my British English pronunciation? Absolutely! I highly recommend 'Broadchurch' (https://goo.gl/5qdWbJ) which is a FANTASTIC crime drama based in a small village in the South of England. The actors are brilliant and it has won lots of awards!

To this day, I mispronounce the word "delete" it was adopted into my native language (Polish) incorrectly. For some reason, "delete" became "dee-late". This mistake is hard to shake after years of hearing it before learning the correct pronunciation. I say "delete" correctly while speaking English, but when refering to the key on the keyboard (the only direct usage of the word delete in Polish) while speaking Polish, I will still call it dee-late most of the time, to my frustration.

I have always pronounced vegetable: vedge-e-table, chocolate: chock-oh-late, and comfortable: com-for-table. I have heard a lot of people do it as well. I think it's pretty normal to enunciate certain words.

Please show me anyone that pronounces any of these words the way she suggested they are spoken incorrectly. I've come across some silly accents in my life but these are ridiculous.

In german standard language we say Schokolade (Sho'ko'la'duh), but in my dialect it becomes Schoklad (Shok'lud), which sounds similar to Chocolate with SH sound at beginning instead of J sound. It is similar to english, only that standard german is not based on a dialect unlike standard english that is based on an english dialect.
No matter how crazy an english word is spelled, just spell it the most minimalistic way possible and most of the time that is the correct pronounciation. ^^

Sinista (13 days ago)
The English language is pretty easy to learn. But the spelling is a nightmare. There are absolutely no rules how to pronounce words or letters, if they are silent or not and how to write them. You just got to learn it. W ater - Sl aughter 🤔 C ater - Tr aitor 🤔 Or the "urd" sound: Turd, stirred, word, bird, Bastard, nerd, Byrd, heard, plastered... 😩 Why a million ways to write urd?

In India, many pronounce 'comfortable' as a 4 syllable word like come-for-tay-ble, instead of saying comf-tble.
