I've been planning to add pronunciation lessons to this site and I think I've finally figured out how. Bear with me on this "dry run," please!

I've been hearing a lot of people make mistakes on the pronunciation of the word "chores." People tend to pronounce it with a "k" sound, "kors" as opposed to the correct "ch" sound. Now, the "k" sound is used for words like "chord" (pronounced "kord"), think of the popular band The Corrs. However, here is the correct pronunciation of "chores" .

The word "choir," though, might add more confusion. Listen to how it's pronounced here .

"Chord," "chores," and "choir" all use "ch" and I honestly don't know why they're pronounced differently but I do know that when it comes to English pronunciation, memorizing the sound can really help.

Have a nice day!
