How To Pronounce "Of"

Oct 23, 2019

Lesson 11

The focus of this week’s lesson is the American pronunciation of one of the most common words in English… “of.” (See how many times it popped up in that last sentence?)

I chose this topic because learning to pronounce common words with your (or your student’s) goal accent is one of the fastest, easiest ways to improve spoken English or learn a new accent.

“Of” is a small word, but it comes up a lot AND it can really affect rhythm.

“Of” is also a really misleading word because the spelling is so different than the pronunciation. It doesn’t sound the way it looks.

But this is all easily fixed. Yes. Fix this tiny word, hear big improvements, what more could we ask for?

Let’s get to the lesson.
