Hi Max, How is it going?. This video was easier than the previous ones as the vowels sound similar to Spanish's. I appreciate all your videos, tips, and patient. That's why I like them. Have a nice week.
English with Max (3 months ago)
Thank you very much! (Just be careful, because the Spanish "i" is different to the "i" in "six' ;).) Have a nice week!

Artur Steiner (3 months ago)
Great video, thank you. I'm Brazilian, speak Portuguese and we have sounds very similar to i and e. We usually have more troubles with words like bad and bed, sad and said. Anyway, it's good to have sex six times a day.
English with Max (3 months ago)
Haha! Ok, I might do a video on those sounds at some stage ;).
Thank alot can you told us the different between soub and sope pleas

Hi, Max! I never thought that someone could mix up six and sex. Because these are slightly different things.😎

Hope so next video talking about different accents us🇺🇸 & British, because of sometimes I had a little bit trouble with some people English specifically old people or some city what's the advice for that please 😍😍
Aram Kurdish (3 months ago)
English with Max 😍😍😍😗😗
English with Max (3 months ago)
I don't know when I'll be able to do that, but the best way to get used to different accents is to watch TV shows and movies, or listen to audio, from different places. If movies and TV series are too difficult, you might find this website helpful. It always indicates where the speakers are from: http://elllo.org/ Good luck!
Aram Kurdish (3 months ago)
Such a (right & read)
English with Max (3 months ago)
These are similar, but they aren't quite minimal pairs because there are 2 sounds that are different (igh/ea & t/d) 😉.

Hello, Max! Would you mind my asking you to make more "advanced" lessons? I love your channel but I'm a little bit tired of those childish grammar and pronunciation videos. I believe there are more people here who think the same way. Thank you and have a good day!
Oleg Jagga (3 months ago)
Thank you so much! I would love to watch them!
English with Max (3 months ago)
I plan to do some more advanced videos, but I'm quite busy at the moment, and sadly they tend to be more time-consuming. My viewers also have a wide range of levels. I'll definitely make some more advanced ones after September ;).
