Pronunciation of the /-ing/ ending in English
Pronunciation practice of the /-ing/ ending in English. Meg gives examples showing the contrast of words with the correct pronunciation of the endings and other similar words.
For me it is very difficult to catch the difference and understand what Meg has said just by listening. The text to this lesson may have mistakes. Try to listen to Meg very carefully and if you notice that the text of this video lesson doesn’t match, please point on these mistakes in the comments. This exercise is very useful as the listening training as well, i.e. the listening perception of English speech.
