Pablo Rugiero said...

It´s very interesting and so difficult for me!
I understand the idea but it´s terrible to do it in the practise. When I´m speeking with somebody!. But I promise to practise it!!

"Maun´n"= MounTain!!!

Why don't you try the pronunciatrion dictionary on the sidebar?

Anyway, here's the word mountain in phonetics, the 1st one's British.

/ˈmaʊn.tɪn/ US /-tən/

What a difference between this pronounciation and what I do, I´ll try to remember this.

Very very dificult.
Party is easier than mountain.
Then I prefer a good Party to a big mountain!
