It can often be difficult to pronounce English words because you have to know if there is a silent letter in the word or not. This time I thought I would focus in on English words where the /h/ sound is silent. Of course, most of the time when you see a word spelled with an /h/ in it you do pronounce the sound, but there are a few words where this isn’t the case. This audio training lesson teaches you about the most common ones, and how to pronounce these English words.
Also have a look at this training video I made here on how to pronounce other English words that have silent letters.

He felt exhausted after the ghastly incident.
The vehicles in the exhibition were amazing.
They were honoured in a grand ceremony.

Ghetto doesn’t rhyme with ghost.
The honest heir shared his inheritance.
She was aghast at the number of hours she had spent on such a small project.
Happy practising and best wishes, Esther
