Pronunciation of English words and phrases has very little to do with the way they are written. This class will provide techniques that make spelling into a personalized tool for improving pronunciation.
Question 1: Imagine you know absolutely no English.
Imagine you hear the phrase: "Ready for this?"
If you had to write what your heard (ready for this?), and knew nothing of English spelling or grammar. How would you spell: "Ready for this?"
Question 2: Which sounds are unique to the English language?
