Skills 360 – Adapting to Change (Part 1)
Play • 7 min

Welcome back to the Business English Skills 360 podcast for today’s lesson on adapting to change.

You might have heard that “change is the only constant,” meaning nothing ever stays the same. That’s easy to say, but not always easy to deal with. Many of us like certainty and stability. We get comfortable and we want to stay that way. But being comfortable shouldn’t mean being complacent, especially in today’s world.

Change doesn’t always happen at the same pace. These days, change seems so fast. And the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced new uncertainties and has accelerated certain trends, like the move toward remote work. Many industries have been battered. And the fact that people are tired of the word “pivot” only demonstrates how the pace of change has accelerated.

#159 English pronunciation practice - Difficult words
Hi, everybody! I am Georgiana, your English teacher and founder of My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Today we will practice some of the most difficult words to pronounce in English. Words that start with "th" as in this or that and words that end in "ly" as in constantly or definitely." And with a mini-story, you will improve your fluency. English pronunciation can be a big problem for some English students. And their native language determines, for the most part, what types of difficulties students will have. However, most English students worldwide find it difficult to pronounce words that start with "th." "th" is one of the hardest sounds to pronounce. And we pronounce it in three different ways: * as /ð/ as in this, that, these, those, they or them. * As the voiceless /θ/ as in three, thing, thought. Some students often say "dat" instead of that. - but we also pronounce it as a /t/ as in Thai. I've asked my students what words they found difficult and many of them were words beginning with "th." Thought, through, three, threaten, throughout, theft. I will give an example for each word but first, let's pronounce them one by one. Listen and repeat. Thought, through, three, threaten, throughout, theft. Examples: * "I never thought my wish could one day come true." * "Through repetition, you will improve your English fluency." * "I had three exams last week and passed all of them." * "They tried to threaten to take away my scholarship, but in the end, they had a change of heart." * You have always been by my side, especially throughout the difficult times. * "They were put in prison for theft."
