    In spoken English, we often add extra sounds between words to link our words together.

    As a result, when you listen to a continuous stream of sound in English, it can be very difficult to identify the individual words.

    These extra linking sounds are:

    /r/ e.g. Where/r/are you?

    /j/ e.g. My/j/eyes are blue.

    /w/ e.g. I'm going to/w/Africa.

    Listen to the example:

    Listen to some phrases and sentences taken from Jogita’s story and identify the linking sounds between the words.
