    - 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!

    I can't believe I've at last found a forum where I can straight up ask the American public, just why it is that they should pronounce the word process , as though it also contains in it's first syllable, the letter *S* , exactly like the word *PROStitute* does. Although in either the UK or Australia, we'll hear that as *prostiTOOT* , as in toot your horn.The correct pronunciation people is,.........wait for it,........ *PRO CESS* , two syllables, pro and cess. There is no *S* in the first, but two in the last. Also, we realise that English speaking countries know how the Americans pronunciation of other words, like new, they'll sound as, *NOO* , as in, NOO car, NOO York, etc., and other words where the letter *U* is included, like opportunity , sounding like , *opporTOONity* , or durable as *DOOrable* , reduce as *reDOOce* etc. At least the word carTOON sounds right. But here's the kicker, when they pronounce the word *computer* , they do so as we all agree the way it should be pronounced, so I'm left wondering why they didn't sound the letter *U* to sound like *POO* . Perhaps even they realised that to sound the word "computer" as, *COMPOOTER* , would sound *shitty* , even to their ears...

    Perhaps deal with the pronunciation of the word “ determine” . Many Africans, especially, pronounce it as “ Deeeta - mine” with the emphasis on the last syllable .
