How Linking Improves English Sentences

Linking Consonants & VowelsFor many Asian speakers, I often hear they were taught to speak Engliah, by SPEAKING EACH WORD SEPARATELY.

However, English speakers are listening for words that LINK TOGETHER in a sentence. The easiest way to start linking is finding words that have an ending consonant next to a beginning vowel.

Examples:

A lot of people were there. > A LOTOV people were there.

I need a new doctor. > I NEEDA new doctor.

Are you driving over now? > Are you DRIVINGOVER now?

Learning english takes practice. > LEARNINGENGLISH takes practice.

Try linking consonants to vowels for improved English pronunication.
