Hi guys and welcome to the alphabet review!

The modern English alphabet consists of 26 characters. It is a Latin alphabet.

These 26 letters exist both in majuscule forms and minuscule forms.

Now, majuscule forms are also referred to as capital letters or uppercase.

And minuscule forms are referred to as lowercase or small letters. Now be careful with the vowels A, E, I, O, U. People sometimes confuse A, E and I. O and U are less problematic. So try and associate “I” (the letter i) with “I” the pronoun, the personal pronoun. “E” is like “Egypt” and A is like A for “Apple”. “A” for “Ape”.

So, A, E, I, O, U are the vowels and the consonants are quite easy in comparison.
