I don’t understand the purpose of this video... French brands are pronounced as close to the original as possible, but what about Mercedes and Adidas, which are also German like Porsche? If one is pronounced the original way, why not do it with all of them? I just can’t find the logic here
That was such a marvelous idea, and video -- thank you so much for it! I believe along with the correct pronunciation, the Grammar has to be correct, too! Found this excellent way of practising and perfecting English Grammar, that I'd love to share with everyone here:
Marina I'm a huge fan of yours, but this time I have to disagree with you:
US Americans pronunciate so many brands and names so wrong that I just don't know where to start. For example Mercedes is not "Merceidis" as you said, since it is not a US brand of cars.
The same with Porsche, US America say "portch" and that is wrong too! Porscheeee, with an E at the end. Itis a name: Ferdinand Porsche was the brand's founder and he was German, as far as I know.Hermes is wrong again, since it is a French brand the right way to say it is "orme" with decline in the second sylbe.
Despite of Burrito and no "burridou"! "Toyota" not "doiouda" lol...
There are dozens of examples...
I didn't finish this video yet so I could be correcting words that you already did.
Sorry but I will have to dislike this one.
Givenchy is pronounced with a French “J” sound, a soft “jz” made with the tip of the tongue, almost like saying “shh.” So its “jzhiv-on-shee,” since the French “e” makes a long “o” sound, and the “ch” is a “sh” sound.
