I’ve just watched a very funny old clip from an American comedy show called I Love Lucy.
This clip is about ‘good’ ‘proper’ English versus how English is REALLY spoken. It also shows how reading English words can cause difficulties, even for native speakers! It looks at the pronunciation of the letters ‘ough’ which I have previously blogged about here: https://naturalenglishlanguageschool.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/the-wonderful-world-of-english-spelling-and-pronunciation/
You can read the subtitles on the video to help you if you need them.
