    16. 16. How to Pronounce “The”• Normally, we pronounce "the" with a short sound (like "thuh"). But when "the" comes before a vowel sound, we pronounce it as a long "thee".
    17. 17. Vowel SoundVowel Written Spoken• A apple thee apple• E the egg thee egg• I the ice-cream thee ice-cream• O the orange thee orange• U the ugli fruit thee ugli fruit
    18. 18. The Sound• It is important to understand that it is what we say that matters, not what we write. It is the sound that matters, not the letter used in writing a word
    19. 19. Sound Examples• the house consonant (h) thuh house consonant sound• the hour consonant (h) thee our vowel sound• the university vowel (u) thuh youniversity consonant sound• the umbrella vowel (u) thee umbrella vowel sound
