at anglo-link in this lesson we're going

to look at some common words such as

foreign purpose and recipe that I often

hear mispronounced by my students

regardless of their native language this

is because English spelling is highly

irregular you cannot rely on the

spelling of a word to tell you how it's

pronounced so let's make sure you're not

mispronouncing these four T common words

reason that words like foreign and

recipe get mispronounced is related to

their vowel lettuce unlike most other

languages the same English vowel letter

does not always carry the same sound

following ways
