Now check your answers.

Pronunciation: silent /h/

In connected speech, when the first word ends in a consonant, the /h/ sound in the next personal pronoun sometimes becomes silent. Listen and notice how the /h/ sound is silent, and then practice after the teacher.

Pronunciation: Plosion (2)
We have already seen that when words finish with /t/ or /d/, sometimes the sound disappears completely or almost completely. The same effect happens with words which end with /k/ and also when the first consonant of the next word is /m/ or /b/. Listen and notice the /t/and /k/ sounds in the underlined words.
