Hey everyone!

Quick English pronunciation tip for you today!

The word is often: meaning frequently ; many times. It is pronounced often, (off-ten) ..there is a distinct “t” sound in the word. However when speaking quickly and casually you may here English speakers leave off this “t” sound saying “often” (off- en) instead of often.

For example: how often does it rain there?
Instead of: how often does it rain there?

Can you hear the difference?

Hope you found this helpful!

Thanks guys!
