    There is no real need to QUOTE long posts if you are not going to use them.

    Getting along is always better than not getting on.

    Well, so I'm not the only one who'd thought so.
    By the way, Thank you for telling me that. because of that, I got to know him better.
    Tell you what, I don't REALLY think you're being like a meddler or what. You're just trying to mediate and clear thing up between him and me.

    The pronunciation sounds AKWARD though.
    By the way, Thank you for your CONTRIBUTION.

    In what way do you think it sounds awkward? It sounds fine to me, given that individual words are being pronounced.

    I'm not sure about the awkwardness of the post, but I'm sure that it would be better to let the thread starter decide about it!

    Sorry, probably I dont get used to British pronunciation. Hehe
    Like, the word *large*, It sounds UNEASY to me( As you know, for American English, all the /r/ sound should be pronounced.)
    Another word, like Volume. Instead of pronouncing the /v/ sound, why does the speaker make the /f/ sound. To me, it sounds like /Foljem/. Volume | Define Volume at Dictionary.com It sounds totally different from this.
    Well, I just listened each sounds on the phonetics chart again. I think it does sound WELL.
    By the way, I'm sorry if I'm being FUSSY- -
