                                Today let's talk about very important concept called linking. What is linking mean? Linking means conecting. and in speach, linking is conecting two words together. There are specific rules that Americans, native speakers follow  when they are speaking English. but they don't realize the following. but they are naturally, smoothly connecting words together. Non native speakers have to learn those rules. if you don't link words together, your speach will sounds choppy and and mechenical, kind like computer Jenared voice, "Hi," " How are you? "So it is very important to learn how to link the words together. you can sounds smooth, and your speech will be interesting to listen, and you will have that natrol, smooth connection. 
               Let's leran the first rule of linking. When a word and with the consornant and the following word begin with vowel, we connect these words together and we link the fanal consonant to the inational vowel. 
                Let's take look how that works. Here we have three sentences, Look at the first sentence, We wouldn't say  In an instant. We would connect the fanal consosant  to the next vowel, In an instant.  So this in and this a will be said  together.. Listen inan, inan.  So it is kind like this n is over here, nan,,,nan....inan , and this n is connectied  following vowel i. ninstant...In an instant. repeat after me. In an instant. So we have a n move here so we have a n  join to this part sounds like nin, one more time, In an instant
                 Let's take look at another sounds, Let's analyse where are consotants, where are vowels. where are uptinatice of the link. John is a friend of mine.   We have a n,  followed by a i  John is, Juhnis linked. we will say Juhnis. there full we don't say  John is, Juhnis, we linked, we will say Johnis. here we have a s ,followed by a vewol a , there full isa...isa.... Listen Johnisa. Don't say John is a .... Say johnisa.  Friend of, one more after aftinaty to link. friendof. Let's see the whold sentence together now. link to smoothly. John is a friend of mine. John is a friend of mine. alright. 
                Let's look at  one more example. I'm an actor.           Look this consonant follows vowel, we say what? I'm an actor. again an plas a, We don't say an actor. We say a nactor. a nactor. repeat.  I'm an actor.
                There are three very important things about linking. number one, Linking does not mean you are speaking fast. a lot of students when they first learn concept of linking they think they have to speak really fast, I'm an actor. John is a friend of mine. that was not linking is. Linking is smooth, connected speech. is not choppy, it is smooth connected. it can be slow if you want to make slow, So remember Linking does not making faster. 
                The second thing is very important of linking. is that you still neet to remember the concept stressing those key key words the content words. otherwise the words would just sound connect together, and you won't know where one word bigans and another one ends. So don't forget  consept of stressing key words. John is a frienomine. John is a friend of mine. in the final thing is do not link betweent groups. So for example. If I say I'll call you in an instant. I'll call you in an instant. you can ceparate the groups. and don't link with the comma or when you need to make a pause for a talk group. 
               Alright, Let's practice few more examples. with final consonants and in naturel vowels. so if we say build up. Let's link two words together,how that will sound. build up = bill dup. come over= ca mover.  Let's link those together. We have a m at the end of the word come, the e after the end is silend.  there full the m is last sound is  consonant, and over is vowel, Let's link that. come over =ca mover.   Call up = ca lup.  Sounds like ca lup.   for a while=fo ra while.  Where is= Whe ris. Sounds like whe ris. Let's look on more. what if . Let's look that actruly. Look this.  What if . We have a t between vowels, and when the t is between the vowels. become the fast d. so we link it. we don't say wha tif. We say wha dif.... remember the t between vowels, sounds like d. even when the t is end of the word, and the next letter of following word is vowel. 
              Alright, Iet's try some sentences now. We don't say Hold on a minute. What we say. Holdon a minute. Holdon a minute. We don't say A cup of coffee. We say Acupof coffee. Give me acupof coffee. We don't say Just a moment. We say Justa moment. Alright, just say more sentences. It's all I'll need for a while. Where is his uncle? Does everybody here work out? Can I think it over? Why did Adam bring it up again? Linking the final consonant to the following vowel is special important for you if you tento finel those consonants at the end word like lots of students do. So if you have difficul tone say card ,and sounds like car.that linking that d to the next following vowel makes a big diffi\erent, just automatic connected brings to the first pasition to you are guaranteed to pronunced the final consonant each time. 

 

When a word ends in a consonant sound and the next word starts with a vowel sound they can link together. if a word ends in a consonant sound and the next word starts with a vowel sound they can link together smoothly.
