- Hello everyone, and welcome
back to English with Lucy.

Today, I've got my biggest
pronunciation video yet.

It's been a long time in the making.
This video is going to show you 100 words
that are difficult to pronounce,
the definitions of the words,
and also how to pronounce
them in British English.

We're going along with
the pronunciation advice

from the Oxford Learner's Dictionary,
the link of which I will
put in the description box.

This video is going to be
fabulous for your pronunciation,

for your relaxation because
I feel like a lot of people

come to my videos just
to have someone talking

in a soft voice in the background,
but it's also going to be
great for your listening,

because if you know how to
pronounce certain words,

then you will be able to understand them
when people say them to you.
I'm also going to share the
definition with you as well

so you'll be able to
improve your vocabulary.

So by the end of this video,
you should be able to
understand 100 words,

use 100 advanced words in your vocabulary,
and also pronounce 100 words perfectly.
Before we get started, I'd
just like to remind you

that if you want to improve
your listening and pronunciation

even further, I really,
really recommend Audible.

Reading is great for improving vocabulary,
but if you actually hear
the words in your ear

and read them as you go along,
oh, it works wonders on your brain.
It works wonders on your language skills.
Audible are offering one free audio book
as a 30-day free trial.

in the description box and sign up.
