It wasn’t until I watched your lessons that I finally understood my mistakes. For the very first time, I heard the difference! I’m from Mexico and even though I speak English, I’ve always had trouble with the “J”, “V” and “Z” sounds. My friends would joke with me that I pronounce the “J” as “Y”, for example “Yak” instead of “Jack”. The problem was that for the life of me, I couldn’t hear the difference, and therefore I couldn’t fix the problem. Because of this, people couldn’t understand me. I avoided words with those sounds as I knew I would mispronounce them and I didn’t want to be misunderstood. This was a horrible feeling. Since taking your course, I am no longer afraid of making mistakes, and now able to pronounce these sounds correctly! Thanks!
