Hi guys! Hello boys and girls and welcome back to my video blog!
I’m Robby, obviously, your English fluency mentor from EnglishHarmony.com and welcome back to my video blog on YouTube, in case you’re watching this video on YouTube, or on my blog at EnglishHarmony.com.
You see – the thing is every video that I put up on YouTube, I actually put up on my blog as well with the transcript and everything so that it’s easier for you to follow it, in case you’re struggling trying to understand what I’m saying here, basically, alright?
But I make the point of pronouncing all the words clearly and speaking at a reasonable speed so that you can understand pretty much everything I’m saying, right?
And in this video I’m going to tell you how to pronounce words ‘yes’ and ‘no’ in English so that you would sound more like a native English speaker.

They’re very straightforward words, right?” ‘Yes’, ‘no’ – they’re the simplest English words, as a matter of fact, so what other way could I be pronouncing them, right? Other than yes and no?
But here’s the thing my friend foreign English speaker – native speakers, more often than not, actually pronounce ‘yes’ as ‘yeah’, conversationally, right.
