English pronunciation can be difficult. There are many different ways to pronounce the same groups of letters.
In this video I look at an amazing poem ‘The Chaos’ which highlights many example of words which look similar but sound different.
This will help your English pronunciation and help you to speak English with a British accent.
Here is the third verse
Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.
