Hi, it’s Anita here from Magoosh English Speaking, here to clear up all your confusion about pronouncing English words that end in -ED. We’re talking about the past tense, past participles and adjectives that end in ED.
It can be a real challenge for English language learners to know how to pronounce that final ED because those two little letters can be pronounced in three different ways: as / id /, / t / or / d / Why we have three pronunciations, I don’t know. It’s not my fault, but it’s my problem today, so let’s tackle this together.
I’m going to teach you 15 need-to-know business idioms and how to use them.
We’ll help you not only understand what these idioms mean, but how to use them in the right business context and with the right tone. Again, the focus will be on idioms common in the business world, but many of these can carry over into general English conversation and other domains as well.
Today we are going to provide you with 3 practical tips for English job interviews. Many people falter at the interview stage even after they have impressed with their resume and technical skills. We want you to feel confident going into the interview, so we’ve prepared today’s lesson which will go beyond “tell me about yourself” and use 3 questions to explain 3 simple yet powerful tips!

Today, I’m going to give you a framework to help you strike up a conversation with practically anyone for the first time, a skill called small talk. Small talk is a polite conversation about something unimportant or uncontroversial.
