During this lesson we're going to learn how to pronounce words which contain the letters: cia, cio, tia, and tio which are often, pronounced with a sh sound, just like words which contain the letters sh.
Here are some examples of words which contain the letters cia: Try repeating each one after me.
Now here are some examples of words which contain the letters cio: Once again, try repeating each one after me.
Next here are some examples of words which contain the letters tia: Remember to repeat each one after me.
And finally here are some examples of words which contain the letters tio:nOnce again, try repeating each one after me.
As always in English, there are many exceptions which you just have to learn as you go, and there are also some differences in pronunciation between British, and American, English.
So, now that you know how to pronounce the sh sound, try chatting with some new friends on GoSpeakEnglish to see if your initial, audacious comunication is sufficient for the creation of an emotional, International relationship!
And that's the end of this lesson!
