Today, we’re going to learn how I lost weight. 

Don’t worry it’s not all about me listening to Metallica. The name of the episode was just to get you to click on it and download it. And I hope it worked!

So, today’s phrase is: to lose weight.

That’s what the majority of people wish for at the start of the year. Losing weight and looking fit.

So today, we’re talking about the word: ‘weight.’

This is a word that’s written using six letters of the English alphabet but pronounced with four phonetic sounds. ‘ Weight’ or /weit/

It also sounds like that other word: ‘ Wait’ – To wait for someone.

This is normal – two different words, pronounced the same.
Same, same but different.

Don’t be surprised. It’s very normal. Welcome to the English language amigos y amigas!
That’s just how it is.

There’s a letter ‘g’ in this word, but we don’t pronounce it. Just to trick you.


Back to today’s episode.

The expression you’re going to learn today is “to lose weight”
