The Ultimate Guide to English Reading Rules and Pronunciation


Reading Rules and Pronunciation. Good for Self-Study. For A1-A2 level.

Category: Tags: ,


This guide to reading and pronunciation rules teaches the most important letter combinations to get a clear understanding of English phonics and spelling.

This is an e-book. After purchase, you will be able to download the PDF of the e-book and audio files accompanying the e-book.

The guide covers 4 types of vowel syllables, the most problematic vowel and consonant combinations, and the list of the trickiest words with silent letters. Great for learning basics of pronunciation. Audio included (American and British accents).

This guide can be used by EFL and ESL teachers as well as for self-learning. I recommend using it by reading the words in groups aloud (after speakers) trying to remember the pattern of pronunciation for certain letter combinations.

For further practice, it’s important to use the words in your own sentences and apply the rules learnt to short texts and the new vocabulary being learnt in the English course.
