Mensagem:  Another thing that just popped in my mind is that the word "important" can be pronounced in a different way. I´ve heard it being pronounced with a flap, like "get up, get on, and so on..."  From the video, the teacher gave the impression that all native speakers pronounce this word with a syllabic N which is not true.
I´m almost certain that Dale can confirm this and any other who has or have already had close contact with Americans.
But, all in all, it´s a very good video. I liked it and recommend.
