Difficult de speak? I understand: a grafia destas words engana because elas têm pronunciations and significados totally different. Saiba como speak este trio de words e nunca mais fique confused:

BIRD

BIRD

Aqui o ‘i’ tem sound de ‘ã‘: ‘Bãrd‘ é a correct pronunciation.

 

 

BEARD

BEARD

Aqui o ‘ea’ tem sound de ‘í‘ na first syllable: ‘Bíãrd‘ é a correct pronunciation.

 

BEARBERRY

BEARBERRY

Aqui o ‘ea’ tem sound de ‘é‘: ‘BÉRR-bé-ry‘ é a correct pronunciation.
