English Pronunciation and its importance:hw-to-improv_img_1

The official language of our country is English. Everyone wants to speak fluently in English and for that correct pronunciation of English words is very necessary. Pronunciation is the way in which we say a word. It should be remembered that in English we do not always pronounce the word the same way we write it. If we know how to pronounce a word then it would be easier for us to talk in English. Pronouncing the correct word is very much essential because without correct articulation English language cannot be spoken fluently.

Pronouncing the Alphabet

There are 26 alphabets in English. It is very important to know the pronunciation of these alphabets. Also it should be kept in mind that letters of alphabet do not always represent the same sounds of English. They are not pronounced as they are written.

Some rules of English pronunciation are as follows:

  1. The letter C is pronounced as K. When followed by e, i or u it sounds like an S.

For example: Cyclone. The letter C is followed by y. So it sounds like a S and the second C sounds like a K

  1. When followed by e, I, or y, G sounds like a J.

For example: Gymnastic. G is followed by y, so it sounds like a J.

  1. When G is followed by any letter other than e, I, or u, then G sounds like a G in Gooseberry.

For example: Goose, Gooseberry.

  1. Just like a sound of short U, the W sound makes the sound of short U.

For example: Wonderful
