Section 1: Introduction

Pronunciation is one thing people will notice when you are speaking English. People may not notice your grammar mistakes or the level of your vocabulary, but they sure notice how you speak or how you pronounce your words.

You need to pronounce your words carefully so people you are communicating with understand what you are trying to say. As an English as a Second Language teacher, I find it difficult to understand my students at times.

For those ESL learners who are taking one of the English exams, they need to pass their reading, speaking and writing exams. The need to pronounce words carefully and know the meaning of words and using them in sentences is very important.

As for those whose first language is English, words with O-U-G-H are often problematic when reading and writing. We all struggle in one area or another.

This course is focusing on words with the sequence of letters O-U-G-H in them. There are also word forms or word family in one of these lectures to help build your vocabulary.
