Some English words begin with the letter H but don’t start with the / h / sound. This is because these words were borrowed into English from the original French. At first, they kept their French pronunciation, but gradually, over time, most of them became Anglicised and lost their French connection. Some of them, however, refused to lose their “posh” French pronunciation. These words, like honour, never had the / h / sound inserted at the beginning. I made this video and the English Activation Pack to help students like you learn which words should be pronounced with an initial / h / sound and which should not. There are 150 common English words in this English Activation Pack, and all have a recording of me giving the correct English pronunciation for you to copy. I have also included two interactive quizzes that will help you to master the vocabulary and the pronunciation. The quiz questions each have an audio file for you to listen to the pronunciation of the word in question. This is an extensive English Activation Pack that took a lot of effort to make. It was made at the request of my wonderful student, Monica, from Italy. Italian, Spanish, and French students will find this English Activation Pack particularly useful, though it will be helpful to any student of English looking to improve their vocabulary and pronunciation.

A look at how and why speech is broken up into parts, or segments, and how this segmentation affects pronunciation.

An introduction to linking consonants in British English. Linking consonants occur when a consonant at the end of a word is followed by a vowel sound during the unbroken sound stream within a speech segment.
