Right, let;s get started with the lesson. Before I start talking to you about pronunciation , I would just like to mention fruit and vegetable. The two nouns. I often hear my students make a mistake . If you can correct you will sound much more native. Vegetable is a countable noun. Do you like this vegetable? No, I prefer these vegetables. When vegetables is in plural form we add an “s” to the end. Vegetable. Vegetables. Fruit, however is slightly different. It is an exception. It’s not an uncountable noun … but sometimes we do treat it an uncountable noun. If we want to talk about fruit in general, we wouldn’t say fruits , we would say fruit. In a supermarket you would see fruit and vegetables.Not fruits and vegetables. Rarely used with the plural “s” , except in phrases that require one. For example I ate 3 different fruits this morning. Now, let’s discuss pronunciation. I am going to start with fruit , simply because I am addicted to fruit, I love it , it’s my favorite food. Make sure you repeat after me. I am going to leave some time for you to practice your pronunciation.
