English is a spoken language and if you’re an English student it’s important that you move beyond basic written fluency to English speaking fluency. When you’re speaking English an important part of sounding like a native American English speaker is understanding—and not pronouncing!—silent letters. In this video I’ll help you get tons of speaking practice with English words that have silent letters. American English gets its unique sound, in part, from these non-sounds! If you’re trying to learn how to speak English like a native speaker it’s these kinds of pronunciation lessons that make a big difference. As you’re learning English speaking I can help you with all the sounds in American English, including these omitted sounds. English speaking presents you with quite a challenge: you need to learn English sounds AND non-sounds! My students often make speaking mistakes because they assume that every letter is voiced in English. But that’s not the case. English speaking fluency, in fact, has more to do with the sounds you leave out—these silent letters and other common reductions—than what’s printed on the page. Let’s get to work!
