“How?” the second mouse asked in surprise.”Watch! Bow, wow!!!” barked the mouse. The cat immediately ran away in fear.
The mouse knew a useful secret.
I know some secrets, too, about English pronunciation and how you can understand the natural speech of native speakers.
For 20 years I have taught English speech and pronunciation at a college in the United States.
My students say: “I studied English a long time, but when I came to the U.S., I couldn’t understand Americans.”

They ask: What are these two elements?
Answer: 1) linking and 2) reduction.
Join us every Saturday for a new secret.
