ok guys, all your answers are right!

now we go to the next lesson.

you may hav noticed that when you want to use the word ' Aplle' in a sentence you don't say a apple you the An Apple.
similarly, whe you use the word aeroplane, you say THE AEroplane and pronounce 'THE' as 'THEE'.

this is because these words begin with vowels.

in English, the vowels are a,e,i,o and u.
when these letters come in the front of a word, like two 'p's in apple, then the vowel will not be pronounced as normal.

a becomes A as in Apple
e becomes ae as in Fellow
i becomes ee as in irredescent
o becomes au as in oscillate
u becomes uh as in upper
when 'a' or 'the' are kept in front of these words 'a' becomes 'an' 'the' becomes thee.

here are some examples.

The aeroplane flies high.

pronunciation- Thee aeroplane flies high.


an upperclassman talks now.

try getting a few examples.

GOOD LUCK!

ok

in english the letters A,E,I,O and U are the vowels.

when these letters come in the begining of a word like atlas, then instead of saying a atlas you will say an atlas.
istead of saying the atlas you will say the atlus where you say 'the as 'thee'.

there are five vowels in english. they are the letters a,e,i,o andu. when these letter come in the begining of any word like a in apple or e in elephant, instead of saying A APPLE you say AN APPLE.
instead of A ELEPHANT you say AN ELEPHANT.

and instead of saying THE APPLE, you pronounce it THEE APPLE and THEE ELEPHANT. just remember that if any of these vowels come in the begining of a word you replace A with AN and THE with THEE.
