Homophonesare words that have the same pronunciation but are spelled differently. These words can really confuse English learners! Some of the most basic homophones include word pairs like
clothes. Learning to recognize homophones is essential if you want to make sure your writing is clearly understood, and it’s also essential for building your English vocabulary. This is the first of a three-part series on homophones. If you are already familiar with these homophones, you can always jump to part 2, which is intermediate, or part 3, which is advanced. Homophones are a type of
homonym, so you may have heard these types of words described before as homonyms. Thanks for clicking, and don’t forget to check your understanding by doing the quiz at the end of the video.
Hi, Alex! How are you doing? good Lesson. I think that every language has homophones. Right? In Russian, we have, like, tons of them.
I’m also pretty sure every single language has them. 99% sure since I don’t know every language. :p
Hi Alex, you are the best… Just I wanted to add that in Spanish we dont have homophones
sorry we have some but not as many as in English
Merci Alex pour cette révision matinale. Have a good day.
Toi aussi! Merci.
Great class, thank you!!
Dear Valery ticher don’t be a deer. Everyone knows in Ukraine people talk Ukrainian language but you don’t. Thanks ALex for nice lesson.
Hi, Guardiola. I speak both languages easily. For me, it’s not a problem whatsoever.) Neither linguistically, nor politically. Stay positive. Cheers! Nice to meet you!
Any time. Thanks for clicking.
Hi Alex, I presume those are the mistakes that English-speaking people often make. As for me, I never get confused with those. It must be because we study English grammar first, not the sound of it. Anyway, I always look forward to your lessons. So fun they are! Cheers!
Thanks Alex, this lesson was great.. and easy..
I have two more coming for intermediate and advanced students.
Yeah, can’t wait ;)

Hi Alex it is perfect video thanks a lot, just my question is that why we are spelling after apostrophe e (i sound) while you are saying it’s ,they’re and you’re ?
Thank you for this lesson .
I am a bit stunned . I was taught that “our” was pronounced like “hour” but a majority of people that I meet says it like “are” even natives . Is it my ears wich trick me or is it a reality ?

Very tender and relaxed video class, overall when you are studying for intermediate and advanced levels. I remember one of my first doubts with the words “where” (wea) and “were” (wa) depending on the accent of the speaker but it has been possible distinguish the two sounds at the end. Thanks a lot, teacher Alex, your classes are very focused on a pedagogic learning, it’s a pleasure to listen to your accent.
