SayIt™ for Lesson H............Sound..mp3?

NEAR, NEAR
When you make the sound in the word near, it's really a sound made with two small sounds: ne-ar.  Say that slowly after me: ne - ar. But we always say them together quickly as one sound: near. Say that more quickly after me:  near.

The main thing you have to do to make this sound is put the two small sounds together very quickly so they sound as one. Say this sentence after me: Fear appears near this year.  Say it again after me: Fear appears near this year……..See how you put the two small sounds into one quickly? 

You should not be surprised that the spelling is not always the same. Look at: here, beer, and the contraction, we're. And the words earth and learn don't sound like near at all.

OK! Try this sentence after me: Here, I hear with my clear ear…..Again after me: Here, I hear with my clear ear…..

And here is one more sentence for the road: We're clearly near the beer...You can say that or do that Cheers!

And Thank You!
