Not Just Saying Its Name…..

Have you ever heard that American English is the most difficult language in the world to learn?

Well….our Variety of Vowel Sounds is a major contributor to this sentiment.

SOOOO, we have 5 vowels: a, e, i, o, u and, sometimes y within our 26 letters that have short sounds, long sounds AND when combined with other letters ~ totally different sounds.
