Hi everyone, in this video we will practise
the pronunciation of the names of the letters of the alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet
has a name which is used when spelling out words. For example, my name is Chris, which
is spelled: “C-H-R-I-S”. The sounds of the letters are, “C-H-R-I-S”, “Chris”,
but the letters each have a name. Now let’s practise the names of all of the
letters of the alphabet. Try repeating each one after me.
A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z
Very good! And now let’s try spelling a sentence which uses each of the letters of
the alphabet. The sentence is: “The quick brown fox jumps
over the lazy dog.” This is spelled as follows: “T-H-E Q-U-I-C-K
B-R-O-W-N F-O-X J-U-M-P-S O-V-E-R T-H-E L-A-Z-Y D-O-G.”
Now you try spelling out each word after me, in the pause.
“T-H-E Q-U-I-C-K B-R-O-W-N F-O-X J-U-M-P-S O-V-E-R T-H-E L-A-Z-Y D-O-G.”
Great! And finally, let’s practise some useful phrases relating to spelling.
“How do you spell Chris?” would be the question that you need to use. You can also
say, “How would you write Chris?”, or, “How is Chris written?”
To reply, I would say, “Chris is spelled C-H-R-I-S”, or “Chris is written C-H-R-I-S”.
Excellent, very good. Listen to the video again and try repeating the names of the letters
of the alphabet after me to practise the British English pronunciation.
