Great lesson, Jade, although I acknowledge it was really hard to me… Fortunately, most of the famous English cities have easier names, like London, for example. Haha! Anyway, it’s always a good idea to know the right way to pronouce in case one day I ought to go there.

This lesson proves that English is not a phonetic language at all. Do you know the reason why the English spelling is so different from speaking?

I am from Brazil and my mother tongue is Portuguese, which is not 100% phonetic, of course, but our pronunciation is more “predictable”, I think.

Thank you in advance!
