When was the last time you laughed really hard when learning English? Learning English as a second language can be very boring sometimes, but a little comedy can change everything and make it fun and funny as well as hilarious.
Have you encounter a moment such as this?
“I’m sorry, I can’t understand you”
“Can you say that again?”
How many times do you hear this when you’re speaking? Even if your vocabulary and English grammar are perfect, it can still be difficult for some people to understand you because of your pronunciation.
Learning to pronounce English words correctly can be one of the hardest parts of learning English. The English language has some sounds that your native language might not possess, so you will have to learn how to make completely new sounds.
Plus, English vowels make it really tricky to know how to say a word. “Way”, “weigh” and “whey” which are all pronounce the same. For example, while “comb,” “bomb” and “tomb” are all pronounced differently.
Here are some another examples for similar pronunciations:
