💖Pronunciation tips

When starting out, really get your vowel

sounds down. Just like I’m starting with pinyin, because Chinese kids start there. Well, kids in America start out with letter sounds and the vowels are the trickiest because they can change when in combination or in specific words. If you master these sounds first, you will be much faster at pronouncing the rest.
a: short a (tap) long a (tape)
e: short e (get) long e (he)
i: short i (big) long i (hi)
o: short o (top) long o (toe)
u: short u (cut) long u (cute)
y: it depends on the word, but it will sound like the above sounds

    @Herbert Yes! I couldn’t agree more, the vowel sounds are probably the hardest thing about pronouncing the English language. I plan to post another tip about “vowel teams” next time. 🙂
