How to pronounce English letters

In setting your pronunciation dictionaries help

Learning a foreign language - is, above all, sound production.

In some languages, the letters are pronounced is always the same (as it is written, and heard) in the other - the same letter in combination with other would sound completely different.

This applies to the English language - here we must teach not only the pronunciation of the alphabet, but different letter combinations.



First of all, learn the English alphabet. note that letters alone often are not pronounced the way they sound in words. For example, "b" - "orientation", and in the words of a "b", "c" - "B", and in the words of three options - "c", "k" and "w", etc.


Then study the transcription system. Firstly, the phonetic transcription allows to record as accurately as possible to the sound of the words, which can not be achieved if you transkribiruete words of Russian letters. For example, the sound [?], [??] And [?] With the Russian alphabet can be designated by a single letter [e], but there is quite a significant difference between them. Second, in the future this knowledge will help you to easily read any word.


Note that consonants in Englishlanguage should be pronounced very clearly. For example, one can deafen voiced consonants (soften), as is customary in the Russian language. On this depends the meaning of the word, for example, bad (bad) - bat (bat). The same applies to long and short sounds: [ful] full - [fu: l] fool.


Practice the pronunciation of the separatesounds, which in the Russian language does not exist: interdental sounds [? ] (Thick, they), labial sound [w] (wait), nasal sound [? ] (Sing), the sound [r] (write) and the sound [:?] (Early).


If you have difficulty in pronunciation isindividual letters or words, and even transcription does not resolve this problem, use Internet resources. For example, Yandex dictionary allows to listen to the sound of each word.
