I grew up in Bedfordshire, a region near London! - How many languages do you speak? English is my mother tongue, but I also speak fluent Spanish and I'm learning Italian. You can see a video of me speaking Spanish here: https://goo.gl/4RVY0O - Which camera do you use? I use the Canon 60D with a 50mm lens (https://goo.gl/T2T045) - Which microphone do you use? I use the SONY ECMCS3 - Very affordable and great value for money: https://goo.gl/uzuIBh (Note that you will need this mic adapter if you want to use it with your iphone - https://goo.gl/oNtEhN) - What shade of lipstick are you wearing? I wear Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Sheer Lip Tint in Berry. You can find it here: https://goo.gl/rjREuM - Which editing software do you use? I use Final Cut Pro X - Which grammar book do you recommend? I completely recommend English Grammar in Use: https://goo.gl/S3DIlN - Can you recommend any books that will help me improve my English? 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!

English with Lucy . It’s English, I’m in New York. You’re right. Two products marketed toward an ‘o’ in chocolate are choco taco and count chocula. Choc(o)late. But this stress on ‘O’ is not an emic, from an etic cacao and coco/a. I think it is probably true this has always been British pronunciation. Chocolate likely arrived in Britain through Português-Spain-France. Anyway, I’m picking it up. Thank you.

Recipe is a French word AFAIK, hence pronunciation. I get some severe butthurts when people say “chemistry” or “choir” with ch as in “chair”. Why is chair a chair and why is choir a choir though?

Sorry Lucy, "vegetable" DOES have 4 sylables along with "comfortable", albeit the"for" bit is spoken more quickly than the other 3. As an English speaking Englishman ,I have also corrected the delightful Emma on her English tutorial for giving similar advice. I refer once again,( a -gen, not a - gane) - to Nuttall's Standard Dictionary of the English language, revised by The Revd.James Wood; ( page 729 for "vej-e-ta-bl" and page 134 for "kum-furt-a -bl". ) I know that quite a lot of younger people - like yourself, pronounce these and similar words wrongly and hope that you all find this short missive of some help. - Cheers! Tony.

English is kinda stupid. Why are there so many silent letters. Plus, there is no one rule for all. You have to memorize always because there are so many exception to the rules. This is hell for English students.

Hmm there's definitely 4 syllables in "comfortable" but you wouldn't say it "com-FAWWT-able" more as, "COME-fortable". Probably depends on region.
In fact, i watch this video because of your beauty
socksumi (14 days ago)
Where I live in Canada I can't think of even one person who pronounces these words in the bizarre ways you described. If you weren't so pretty this would have been a complete waste of my time. Now if you really want to start a debate, tell us how to pronounce 'vitamins' or 'tomatoes'.

Hi Lucy, I'm a 14 years old student in Hong Kong. I had seen your video which teaches 10 words pronunciation today, then l realise that teachers in Hong Kong had taught me wrong by the pronunciation. Although Hong Kong was the colony of Britain, Hong Kong people couldn't learn the exactly right way of British accent. Therefore l think a ordinary British citizen's English pronunciation must be better than a secondary school's teacher's.Thus, l have tried to learn British accent and the real pronunciation myself since l was 12 years old, then l watched several drama and movies which were produced in Britain, especially Sherlock. At first, l think that Benedict Cumberbatch's accent is extremely excellent and authentic, so l have learnt his accent. However, l discovered that even he spoke the word "penguin" wrongly, so l don't suggest myself to continue to learn British pronunciation from him.But today, l have seen your video, then l discovered many teachers in Hong Kong speak "chocolate" wrong, they speak "cho-co-late". Then l have found out that the real way of speaking "crisps", l was really surprised that everyone said it wrongly, me as well, so there are much information that l need to learn about British English.However,l was scared that Hong Kong students can't learn the right way of British English's pronunciation because the teachers don't know the actual pronunciation and teach them Chinglish(Chinese mix with English), so l hope that Hong Kong people can speak a correct pronunciation of English because it is very important and necessary for this international city.(P.S., To be honest, Hong Kong people speak terribly miserable English pronunciation)
