Hi Fran,

 

At first I had so many troubles with the ED sounds. Then I asked [askt] a friend of mine to correct me. I used to say USED and she always repeated after me, "UST".

I've trying to drop the E and replace the D for a T and it has worked [workt] well...LOL.

 

With words ending with T and D I'm still saying "wanted, invited".

 

I also got a book about intonation, before people didn't understand me mostly because of my intonation. One day at work, a girl asked for a number, I was telling her but I didn't put the right intonation at the end, then guess what, she was looking at me and waiting for more numbers to right down. Now I'm paying more attention to the raise and fall of sentences.

 

Sid.
