Hello everyone! Welcome to your English class. In this lesson, we’ll go over some basics of the English language. English is a widely spoken language and is used in many countries as a primary or secondary language.
Some important things to remember when learning English are pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. Pronunciation refers to the way in which words are spoken. Grammar involves the structure of sentences and their organization. Vocabulary is the set of words or phrases used in a language.
To begin with, let’s focus on pronunciation. English has 26 letters, but some letters can have different sounds depending on the word. For example, the letter ‘a’ can sound different in ‘cat’ and ‘car’. To improve your pronunciation, it’s important to practice speaking and listening to people who speak English. You can also use online resources to help you with pronunciation.
