Topic: Is there any rule for short and long vowel sounds?
Posted: Sunday, September 24, 2017 5:06:28 PM
In Spanish a, e, i, o and u only have one sound and we can detect easily in a word because is only one sound.
In English minimum are two and it could be more than two. Is there any way to know which sound to use in a word that you don't know the meaning but you see/read the spelling?
I am pretty sure there are rules but I don't know where to find them.
