 Lecture Description:

If you can`t hear English around you every day, knowing how to say new words can be very difficult! There are so many words that begin with C in English, but it`s hard to know if the C makes a sound like an S or a K. I am very excited to have figured out HOW you can know which sound the C makes! Watch this video to learn the trick and start pronouncing words correctly, t

 Hello. I`m not sick of jumping up and down. Are you? Let`s do more. My name is Ronnie. I`m going to teach you something that I`m really quite excited to teach you. I`m a little bit insane. That`s fine. For years, people have been asking me, "Ronnie, how do you know -- when you see the written letter C -- whether you say it like an S or like a K?" "I don`t know. I have no idea." So then, I thought about when I was a child. How did I know that, for example, my country Canada is "k" and not "sanada"? Probably because I hear people saying "kanada" and not "sanada". So I had the advantage of listening to people speak English around me. You don`t have that advantage maybe. So I have found it, the answer to this question that has been plaguing me for years. I`m going to share it with you. Please do not get as excited as I am right now. Do not jump. I dare you not to jump. So check it out, C pronunciation. Here we go. Sometimes, it sounds like an S. But sometimes, it sounds like a K. How the hell are you going to know what to do?

This is the game. So we have a beautiful list of vowels. So we have A, E, I, 0, U, and sometimes Y is a vowel. If your word has a C and an A for example, very basic, "cat". If your word has a C and an E -- for example "center", "cell", or "cereal", it`s going to sound like an S. If your C word has C and A, it`s a K. If your C word has an I, it`s going to sound like an S. If it`s followed by an O, it`s a K. U, it`s a K. And Y, it`s an S. So let`s check out our new theory. If your word has C followed by the vowel E like this, this sound is actually going to be S, not "ch" or "k". We don`t say "kenter", we say "center". Why? Don`t ask me. I`ve just figured out how. And this word, "cell", like a cell phone, is actually an S. So it`s also a homophone, meaning the word "sell" as in "to sell something to someone" has the exact same pronunciation as your cell phone. So you can sell your cell phone. Bad joke.

You love it. So "center", because we have CE, "cell" because we have CE, and delicious morning food, "cereal", because it has CE is always going to sound like an S. Yay. Next one. C plus I -- for example, the word "city" -- because it`s CI, it`s going to sound like "city". We have to be really careful again between the S and the SH. It is a sound "s", not "ch". You don`t want to say "shitty"; you want to say "city". This word, "cigar", which is a big, fat cigarette -- "cigarette". Hello. It`s an S word. -- is going to follow the S rule. Oh, "cilantro". Do you know what "cilantro" is? It`s a really, really delicious herb. It is common in Mexico and in Thailand and in India. Delicious. Cilantro is an herb, and it makes an S sound because it`s CI together. Cool. Next one. These words have the CY. Now, like I said, sometimes, Y is a vowel. Now, before I get all crazy and freak out because this is amazing, we must understand one thing in English all the time. There are rules, and there are patterns or methods, but there are also exceptions to these rules and patterns and methods. So this is not 100 percent for all of the vowels and all of the time. But it`s a really, really good guideline to help you figure it out.

 About English Language

English_language_62English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. It is an official language of almost 60 sovereign states and the most commonly spoken language in sovereign states including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and a number of Caribbean nations. It is the third-most-common native language in the world, after Mandarin and Spanish. It is widely learned as a second language and is an official language of the European Union and of the United Nations, as well as of many world organisations.

English arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and what is now southeast Scotland. Through the worldwide influence of England, Great Britain, and the United Kingdom from the 17th to mid-20th centuries under the British Empire, it has been widely propagated around the world. Through the spread of English literature, world media networks such as the BBC, the American film and television industry, and the Internet, English has become the leading language of international discourse and the lingua franca in many regions and in professional contexts such as science.

Historically, English originated from the fusion of closely related dialects, now collectively termed Old English, which were brought to the eastern coast of Great Britain by Germanic settlers (Anglo-Saxons) by the 5th century; the word English is simply the modern spelling of englisc, the name used by the Angles and Saxons for their language, after the Angles` ancestral region of Angeln (in what is now Schleswig-Holstein). The language was also influenced early on by the Old Norse language through Viking invasions in the 9th and 10th centuries.

The Norman conquest of England in the 11th century gave rise to heavy borrowings from Norman French: thus a layer of elaborate vocabulary, particularly in the field of governance, and some Romance-language spelling conventions were added to what had by then become Middle English. The Great Vowel Shift that began in the south of England in the 15th century is one of the events that mark the emergence of Modern English.

In addition to native words inherited from Anglo-Saxon, and those borrowed from Old Norse and Norman French, a significant number of English words came into the language from Latin, because Latin was the lingua franca of the Christian Church and of European intellectual life for the first millennium of the development of English.

Owing to the assimilation of words from many other languages throughout history, modern English contains a very large vocabulary, with complex and irregular spelling, particularly of vowels. Modern English has not only assimilated words from other European languages, but from all over the world. The Oxford English Dictionary lists more than 250,000 distinct words, not including many technical, scientific, and slang terms
