Please Join My Next Free Class: Practise Connected Speech in English – Final Consonant Linking

http://www.wiziq.com/online-class/971566-practise-connected-speech-in-english-final-consonant-linking

About the Class

We’re going to spend a whole lesson looking at final consonant linking in cv connections in English speech. For example, in the sentence “I like English” there is one example of final consonant linking: “like English” becomes Lai King glish

If you are interested in this kind of thing, you will be sure to enjoy this lesson! Make sure you have your microphone plugged in, so that you can speak during the class.

This class will be relaxed and fun, so please come and join us if you would like to improve your speaking and listening skills in a friendly class.

See you there! 😉
