Hello everyone and welcome back! Let’s practise some commonly mispronounced words!

So as not to confuse you, I’m not going to pronounce them as I sometimes hear them mispronounced.

I’m going to read the list of words that appear on your screen and the idea is to pronounce the sounds slowly so really break down those syllables and then read the word more naturally:

almond
ask
bowl
breakfast
brewery

etc.
