The ending 'ed' of Past Simple form of the regular verbs is pronounced in three different ways. This video teaches us how to recognize them. Just take a peek!

Nice tips! The presentation is very useful equip with encouraging gestures! thank you for sharing, Gabriel. : )
My pleasure! It is, understandably enough, hard for us to digest or remember something immediately after coming across for the first time! Thus, don’t feel guilty about watching the video again. Learning by repetition is very effective and that’s a fact.
Can I make a suggestion? Follow this link and watch the video. You can practise pronouncing a list of words with all the three different pronunciations of the ending ‘ed’. Enjoy!
Thanks Gabriel Sowrian for your share. hhhhh.....I hear/watch your video yesterday but today hahaha.....I forget all. OMG....How stupid I am.
Don’t mention it! I’m delighted indeed that the video comes in handy for you. Many non-native speakers, if the truth is told, often think that the ‘-ed’ ending of Past Simple Regular Verbs is always pronounced either /d/ or /ɪd/. They are completely unaware that there is a third pronunciation, i.e. /t/.
By the way, please take note of the typos in the phonetic transcriptions that I noticed in this video.
difference /ˈdɪfərəns/ (wrong)
/ˈdɪfrəns/ (correct) Can you see the difference?
arrive /əˈraɪvə/ the schwa /ə/ at the end is not needed
enjoy /enˈdʒɔɪ/ the initial sound is not /e/
/ɪnˈdʒɔɪ / it is /ɪ/
marry /ˈmærɪ/ the final sound is not the short vowel /ɪ/
/ˈmæri/ the compromised /i/ is the appropriate one
married /ˈmærɪd/ should be written (pronounced) /ˈmærid/
Have fun with the ‘-ed’ sounds, my dear friend!

Gabriel, Thank you very much for the video. I think it's very useful....e. g. my students are often confused in pronouncing the ending -ed. I can use this video to improve their pronunciation skills. Thanks for sharing.
I'm very happy that you found this video could be useful! Let's hope our fellow learners of English will make use of it to overcome the diffculty of pronouncing the ending '-ed' of past simple regular verbs. See you!!

Great! Thank you for the useful video, Gabriel.
