https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWQxPPzjxac

Instructions:  Listen to the youtube video above and fill in the blanks in the transcript below (or write your answers on a piece of paper). Beginners can use the list of missing words and phrases, but if you're an advanced student, try to fill in the blanks just by listening to the video, without looking at the missing words and phrases.  The answers are given at the end of the transcript.

Main Features:  There are two main features in this video lesson.  1) The words "him" ("im") and "them" ("em") can sound similar.  When the "h" and "th" are silent, then you will hear "im" and "em", as in this video.  2) The phrase "out of" sounds like "ah-da".  There are many ways to say "out of".  For example, if the "v" is silent, then "out of" can sound like "outta" and "oudda".  In this video lesson you'll hear "ah-da".
