Flower VS flour?
Oh, those homophones!
Homophones. Words that SOUND the same but have different MEANING and SPELLING.
I bet you have it in your first language as well.
But when it comes to English, things become a little more complicated because it’s not your ‘home court’ so you may often feel like you must be doing something wrong.
In this episode, I’m sharing with you a list of 11 common homophones, breaking down their pronunciation and spelling plus giving you easy-to-remember example sentences, so you will never be confused again and have the confidence to pronounce these words clearly.
Here’s my short & sweet list of the most common homophones in English I share in this episode:
1. flower – flour
2. here – hear
3. sun – son
4. there – their – they’re
5. right – write
6. road – rode
7. hoarse – horse
8. soul – sole
9. war – wore
10. see – sea
11. to – too – two
For pronunciation, meaning and example sentences – watch the video.
You can also listen to it as a podcast episode on my new podcast >>> THE IN.FLUENCY PODCAST.
I even marked the exact time for each pair of homophones (if you’re the busy type of person that needs to get straight to the point)
Once you’re done watching the video, let me know which of those homophones surprised you the most?
Also keep your eyes peeled for the second part of this lesson in which I’m gonna talk about homographs: words that are spelled the same but pronounced differently.
