– One small sound can change your meaning.

The vowels of English can be very confusing– because what you see is not always what you say!
Do you know the difference between come and comb?  Love and low?  Over and oven?  The letter “o” can be pronounced in several ways. So how do you know what to say?? Best solution – memorize the correct pronunciation like this–listen and repeat important words correctly 1000 times and you will remember and use them accurately.
Try these– ball and bat, boot and book, rack and rake, live and drive, sheet and “oops!”
