Hi there!

During this lesson we're going to learn how to pronounce monosyllabic words which contain the letters: AL.

Some monosyllabic words, which contain the letters AL followed immediately by another consonant, often make the: a, a longer sound which can either be: aww, or: ahh.

Here are some examples of words with the: aww sound:

Note that in the words: talk and walk, the letter L is silent, but in some words such as: halt and malt, the letter L is pronounced.

Now here are some words with the: ahh sound.

Note that in all of these words, the letter L is silent

Monosyllabic words which contain the letter A, immediately followed by a double LL, nearly always make the: A into an: aww sound.

Here are some examples:


So, now that you know how to pronounce words with: AL, try to find some new friends on GoSpeakEnglish and call them to see if they can talk like they can walk, in a cool, calm, and collected way, just like you!

And that's the end of this lesson!

Now you can see if you've understood the video, and do the test on GoSpeakEnglish. You can also watch many other English video lessons on GoSpeakEnglish.

Thanks, and I hope to see you again soon!
