English Pronunciation Practice – 13 or 30? (Video for listening practice!)

Learn an easy way to pronounce numbers that sound similar 
to non-native English speakers. 

Helpful slides from the video ↓

Native speakers pronounce numbers like 30, 40 and 50 
with a D sound rather than a T sound. 
13, 14 15, on the other hand, have a much stronger 
T sound in their pronunciation. 
They also have a slightly longer E sound with subtle ‘N’ sound at the end.

13 vs. 30
