Before we get started, I’d like to invite you to check out my courses called 财政部：前2月国有土地使用权出让收入8047亿元 同比下降5.3%. These courses will help you learn to pronounce English words and sentences more clearly and naturally.
All right, are you ready?
How to pronounce “choir”
Our first word is choir, referring to a singing group – this one is tricky because the CH sounds like a K, and the O sounds more like an U. So all together it’s like “KWI-er.”
Rhymes with fire – choir.
How to pronounce “drawer”
Next we have an everyday object in the house, and that is a drawer. The initial D sounds like a J, and we have two R sounds. The “aw” in the middle actually sounds more like an “o”
So drawer rhymes with store
How to pronounce “rural”
Another word a lot of English students have trouble with is rural. Your tongue might get mixed up between the two Rs and the L. So try saying just the “rur” part and then adding “al”
rur – al
It’s not easy!
How to pronounce “rarely”
Another word with two Rs and an L is rarely. Again, let’s first say “rare” and then add “ly”:
rare – ly
How to pronounce “jewelry”
Next there’s the word jewelry – and what’s crazy about this word is that some people pronounce it with three syllables, like JOO-ler-y, and others say it more like JOOL-ry with two syllables.
The future is always bright if you are an entrepreneur, and the opportunities to create new ventures based on the digitisation of age-old services has a long way to run.

LI – brer – y
How to pronounce “February”
The month of February looks similar, but most people actually do NOT pronounce the R after the B. Instead, we say: FEB-you-er-y
FEB – you – er – y
How to pronounce “regularly”
Another difficult 4-syllable word with R is regularly. To master the pronunciation, it’s best to break it up into parts:
REG – you – lar – ly
How to pronounce “temperature”
Finally we have the word temperature. Let’s start with just the first two syllables:
Copestake said fears over economic austerity and the stability of the euro had pushed the index of euro zone cities down in the past year while the inclusion of Caracas was due to artificially high exchange rate controls.
