Here are some common English pronunciation patterns:
- In English, when the letters 'p' and 'h' are placed together, this combinations makes an /f/ sound, as in the word "phone."
- The letter 'q' is always followed by the letter 'u.' In English there are no 'qu' syllables which are followed by another 'u' so just practice the sound below as /kw/, trying not to add any vowel sounds afterward.
- The syllables 'sce,' 'sci,' and 'scy' will follow the same pattern we learned in lesson 1, with the letter 'c' making a soft /s/ sound.
Wonderful job! Please go to the final syllable-related phonics lesson.
