– Hello everyone, and welcome back
to English with Lucy.
I’ve got another pronunciation video
for you today, and it’s one
that’s been highly requested.
I made a video a couple of months ago
about commonly mispronounced brand names,
and people seem to really really want
commonly mispronounced car names.
Now, I’m not a car expert.
I only passed my driving test a year ago.
But I take great interest in pronunciation
and I’ve done my research, and I’m here
to help you guys out, it will help you
with your speaking and listening.
If you want to improve your speaking
and listening even
further, I really recommend
that you start using audiobooks
whilst reading, so you can find out
the pronunciation of
the words that you read.
The platform I recommend is audible.com.
You can get a 30-day free trial
which is a free audiobook, amazing,
if you click on the link
in the description box,
and there are loads of recommendations
for different levels of
English, down there as well.
Right, let’s get started with the lesson.
Okay, so I’ve got 10 car brands in total.
Let’s start with the Italian ones.
The first one, this one.
A lot of people call it Alfa Ro-meo,
because it sounds like Romeo and Juliet,
but it’s an Italian brand, so it should be
So it’s not Alfa Ro-meo,
it’s al-fa ro-MEY-oh,
or Alfa ro-Mey-oh.
The next one, not such a common brand,
but I have heard it
referred to as a Lan-cia,
and it should be lan-cha, lan-cha.
Now the next one, number three,
is a very expensive car brand,
and we tend to pronounce it incorrectly
A lot of people might say
lam-bor-gini, or lam-bourg-ini.
It should be lam-bor-ghee-nee,
So it’s that bor sound.
I don’t think we have to worry
too much about the rolled r’s
because not everybody can do that,
but we should at least
try bor, lam-bor-ghee-nee.
The next one, isn’t
maser-ah-ti, it should be
I think you’ll be forgiven
if you say maser-ah-ti.
Okay, the next one, a German car name.
A lot of people might say Aw-di, but
if we’re going to be like the Germans,
we need to say ow-dee, ow-dee.
The next one, another German car brand,
this one I did mention in my brand video.
In the UK, we always call this Porsche,
but it should have a schwa at the end,
it needs to be por-shuh, por-shuh.
The next one, another German one.
This one, volks-wagen?
In Germany, they would say follks-vah-gen.
The v makes a ff sound,
and the w makes a v sound.
Okay, the next one is possibly the most
complicated one we have
on this list today.
It’s a Swedish car brand.
I don’t even know what I would call this,
I would just give it a go.
ko-enig-segg sounds beautiful.
It should be kuhn-nig-seg, kuhn-nig-seg.
Now the next one, we’ve got this one.
A lot of people would call it shev-ro-let.
People get confused by that T on the end,
but it’s not pronounced, it
is shev-ruh-ley, shev-ruh-ley.
And the final one, and this is the one
I’m going to struggle with most
because it’s not the french uh sound.
It is this one.
It often gets pronounced
as citron or citroën,
but it should be pronounced see-troh-en.
But you could just say
Man, I don’t know if I’ll ever
be able to master the French car brands
but maybe I’ll just buy Italian ones.
That being said, I’ve got a Mini Cooper.
Anyway guys, that’s it for today’s lesson.
