WHEN SPEAKING, CONSIDERWORD USAGE AND PRONUNCIATION (2)

Some things to watch:

  • Your pronunciation and use of ‘sh’ – you tend to go to ‘s’ with words.
  • The need to be aware of the fact that some words (ie ‘sugar’ are said as ‘shugar’ although they are spelled without that sound (sh) being emphasised.
  • Similarly with ‘cl’ ie ‘in the next class’, not ‘in the next cass’.
  • Similarly with ‘th’ ie ‘thirty centimeters’ not ‘tirty centimetres’.
  • Sometimes you miss plurals, ie ‘use your coloured pencils’ not ‘use your coloured pencil’.
  • “How many we need?” should be “How many do we need?”
