Mensagem:  Hey!

So, the thing is: this student that asked me about the way I was speaking having, used to have a teacher who lived in UK for a long time. So, I guess it is going to be hard for them to get used to my accent, since I speak American English, but I'm really sure how I should speak the ING
So basically, according to what you said, there is no "rule" for speaking the ing, it just depends on the speaker, the age etc.  and let me see if I understood, if the syllable is stressed, then it will be spoken with the /I/ sound....  This is better!

And I agree with Jose Roberto when he said about the theorical english course. Unfortunately, some courses are still theorical! This is why students tend not to like English. I dont like to teach grammar and rules etc, I just like to let them know about some differences in pronunciation, which is really important. To tell you the truth, the only thing they have to know is that basically the sounds of vowels in English are not the same as in Portuguese (at least most of the times) and this is really important!
