    - Where are you from?
    I grew up in Bedfordshire, a region near London!
    - How many languages do you speak?
    English is my mother tongue, but I also speak fluent Spanish and I'm learning Italian. You can see a video of me speaking Spanish here: goo.gl/4RVY0O
    - Which camera do you use?
    I use the Canon 60D with a 50mm lens (goo.gl/T2T045)
    - Which microphone do you use?
    I use the SONY ECMCS3 - Very affordable and great value for money:
    goo.gl/uzuIBh (Note that you will need this mic adapter if you want to use it with your iphone - goo.gl/oNtEhN)
    - What shade of lipstick are you wearing?
    I wear Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Sheer Lip Tint in Berry. You can find it here: goo.gl/rjREuM
    - Which editing software do you use?
    I use Final Cut Pro X
    - Which grammar book do you recommend?
    I completely recommend English Grammar in Use: goo.gl/S3DIlN
    - Can you recommend any books that will help me improve my English?
    I always recommend 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' (goo.gl/7vGLDY) as it is written in the first person from the point of view of an autistic teenager and it does not use very complicated language. Some of it is also based in London which I like.
    - Can you recommend a British TV Series for me to watch and improve my British English pronunciation?
    Absolutely! I highly recommend 'Broadchurch' (goo.gl/5qdWbJ) which is a FANTASTIC crime drama based in a small village in the South of England. The actors are brilliant and it has won lots of awards!

    Hi Lucy;) I'm from Denmark and I have to say; the words you selected as being difficult to pronounce, are fairly easy for me to pronounce. But I guess that's all relative, right? In the past I used to have difficulties with words like: "query", "prejudice", "omnipotent", "obsolescence", just to name a few;)
    But thanks for posting the video! I prefer the British pronounciation of English very much -instead of- to American! :D

    I used to read the word as per spelling in order to remember the spelling of word but not each and every word like silent word and when I tried to focus on pronunciation to speak like a native I started forgetting its spelling.

    I actually came here hoping to hear how the word "pronunciation" is pronounced in British English. I am watching a British movie right now where this girl was practicing a new language (Urdu) and when she finished her teacher said, "very nice proNOUNciation" and I was immediately frustrated because it's like his compliment was ruined by his own improper pronunciation of his native language. I'm glad that you started your video using the word "pronunciation" in the intro so I could hear that I am right for being a mildly annoyed by this in this movie.

    in Poland many people try to pronounce comfortable like com-for-table. As they see a "table" on the end, they pronounce the end like "ˈtābəl"

    We say comfortable, "Kumd-furt-bull". Not too far off from the way we pronounce it by the way, I am Midwestern/Southern American. If you are from the South(in the U.S.), we don't care to be called "Yanks". Have a great day everyone!!

    This English friend of mine, he'd been travelling around South America for one whole year. He returned to Europe, he came to Madrid to meet me, and in the wee small hours of the morning, he made pronounce the word 'food' once and again. He seemed to be enjoying himself with that. Say it again: 'food''food'
