  1. 1. Pronunciation of the final -s The final –s of the third person of singular in the present simple and the plurals of nouns can be pronounced in three diferent ways : /s/ /z/ /iz/ These are sounds. They are not letters This is the sound made by a snake (serpiente) This is the sound made by a bee (abeja )
