English pronunciation is not easy or logical, because of its Germanic origins and the way the speaking and writing developed. If you speak a language like Japanese, Turkish or Italian where every letter that is written, you pronounce, then English pronunciation might seem crazy.
Just look at these words: though, through, tough, cough, borough, bough. Same spelling, totally different pronunciation. Not easy, huh?
At least knowing which letters not to pronounce is helpful. Try this quiz on silent letters. Which words have a letter that is not pronounced? And which letter is it? (Answers in the comments from tomorrow.)
My blog has changed! If you're looking for my English-practice exercises, they're all still here, just look in the archives.
