    Welcome to the forum, kazuma.

    We like to help when we can, but we don't help with assignments. If your professor asked you that question, then I imagine that he wants your response, not ours.

    As 5jj said, we don't help with homework. However, please see the corrections I made to your post. It is important to follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Well It is not a homework in all honestly , it is a side question for a free marks in return to who will answer it ( due to our level being so low in this subject ) .

    And thank you Ms.emsr2d2 for your feed back .

    One thing I can tell you about the glottal stop: I find it really hard to produce! All I can say is that it is not a common phenomenon in AmE (which is the closest to my accent). Also, for non-native speakers (at least the ones I have met so far, and they were pretty much from all over the world), it tends to be hard, unless they have a good teacher.

    I can say no more without answering the question for you, as of now. Good luck with the extra points!
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Well it is not entirely impossible nor it does require a teacher in the first place! .
    As they always say : " Practice makes perfect ", you just have to hear and hear an d then (subcouncsly) with a little twist in your toungh ( in layman's terms *gulp*) , you will be able to .
    And by subccouncsly I mean how do you actully close the ..... Valve ? in order to take out the letter T in the word letter ! , and that little twist will give you that NATIVE FELLING .

    I think the word you are looking for is "subconsciously".
