PostSubject: English is not Phonetic   Sun Apr 13, 2008 5:55 am

Always remember that English is not "phonetic". That means that we do not always say a word the same way that we spell it.

Some words can have the same spelling but different pronunciation, for example:

I like to read [ri:d].
I have read [red] that book.


Some words have different spelling but the same pronunciation, for example:

I have read [red] that book.
My favourite colour is red [red].


Learn the 52 Sounds of English


The English language may have 26 letters of the alphabet, but it has double that number of sounds: 52. Knowing and recognizing the 52 sounds will help to give you good pronunciation. Of course, everybody knows that good pronunciation helps our speaking.
But do you know that good pronunciation also helps our listening?
