One thought on “ESL

  1. Hi,

    So I got to thinking about why English is so hard when there is only 26 letters in the alphabet.
    20 Consonants make 23 sounds
    5 vowels make 18 sounds
    25 two letter vowels make roughly 36 sounds
    All together that is 77 sounds. Granted that many of the vowel sounds are duplicate sounds. However one still has to memorize what vowel letter or vowel letter combination these duplicate sounds are ascribed to.
    Thanks, God Bless,
    Aaron
