Note: The word read can be pronounced in two different ways:
1 Please read the instructions now. In this example, read is pronouned reed.
2 I read that book last week. In this example, read is pronouned red: it's about something in the past.
I was reading about cats. This is also about something in the past, but is pronounced reeding, not reding.
|LEARNING ENGLISH||USING YOUR MOUSE|
You can hold your mouse over a green word to learn more about it in a pop-up window. You do not need to click the word. Try it now, but it might not work on a small screen.
And, you can hold your mouse over a yellow word to hear it spoken. You do not need to click the word. Try it now. If you can't hear anything, make sure that your computer's sound system is working.
Note: The words hear and here sound the same. Here are two examples:
1 Did you hear what I said?
2 I'll wait here for you.
|SOUND TEST||LISTEN TO SOME MUSIC|
To test your compter's sound system, you can play some English music. Learning English often includes music, usually played by the Bampton Midi Orchestra, to educate, entertain, and interest you. To play or pause the player, and adjust the volume, use the controls.
