ronnie you rock!

Saturday, November 24th 2018

I got 8 out of 9. These vowels are almost sound like in French.
My 4 questions is my mistake because of a word “discussed” has 3 vowels.
Anyways, thank you mrs. Ronnie!

Sunday, November 25th 2018

What about these words “sound “”guidance “

Monday, November 26th 2018

Thanks Ronnie. It’s very useful. Now the big problem which remain for me is how to pronounce the i. For example : operative. How do I know if the i is pronounced like in pie or like in him ? I haven’t looked at all the lessons on the site. Maybe there’s one on this point. If not, could you find a magical guideline for that, too ? (Your lessons are very much fun, I love them !)

Monday, November 26th 2018

Hi, Ronnie. I wonder if you would be so kind as to teach us how to separate words into syllables. Could you also tell us some guidelines about the letter E (for example: is there a reason why the E in DISCRETION is short and not long?)
