Don’t be Embar­rassed – Speak Eng­lish More Clear­ly- Audio les­son

To speak Eng­lish more clear­ly you need to know how to pro­nounce the words cor­rect­ly. Each time you begin to pro­nounce and use one or two words more cor­rect­ly, it already makes your speech clear­er.

This time, to help you speak Eng­lish more clear­ly, I have an audio les­son for you about when ‘ch' says /k/ in words. 

Did you know that ‘ch' can say 3 sounds in Eng­lish:

It can say ‘ch'- church, child, watch (most com­mon­ly used sound for ‘ch')

It can say ‘k'-  tech­nol­o­gy, ache

It can say ‘sh'- chef, machine, para­chute

As is often the case in Eng­lish pro­nun­ci­a­tion, a let­ter or two let­ters togeth­er, can say more than just one sound. So lets look at a list of some words where ‘ch' can say the / k/ sound which is its 2nd most com­mon­ly used sound.
