  • Hello, everyone.

  • My name is [email protected]nny.

  • And in this video, I'm gonna talk to you about the 'Silent B' letter in English.

  • Now, there are many words containing the letter B

  • And sometimes, for some reason, this B is silent.

  • Now, let's take a few examples.

  • First, we have the word 'climb'.

  • Now there's a 'b'.

  • You can see it when you spell the word,

  • it ends with the letter 'B'.

  • But can you hear it?

  • Listen to me. 'climb'.

  • No, you can't. You can't hear the letter 'B'.

  • Because it's a silent 'B'.

  • Another example,

  • would be the word 'bomb'.

  • I know you're thinking of the spelling.

  • There's a 'B' at the end of this word.

  • But again, it's a silent B.

  • In fact, most of the time in English, when a short word ends with the letters 'mb',

  • the 'b' is silent.

  • Now another example,

  • the word 'debt'.

  • Most of my students pronounce it 'debt'.

  • Because they know the spelling of the word

  • and there's a 'b' before this 't'.

  • But it's a silent B, guys.

  • It's not pronounced, so you actually say 'Det'.

  • Now for longer words, again, the letter 'B'

  • is sometimes silent, not always.

  • For example, if I say the word 'plumber',

  • it's a silent B.

  • It's not pronounced 'plum-ber'. It's spelled with a 'B', but the 'B' is silent.

  • But, if I say the word 'crumble',

  • the 'b' is not silent.

  • You can clearly hear the sound 'b', 'crumble'.

  • Okay?

  • So it's not always silent.

  • Another example would be the word 'subtle'.

  • Now 'subtle' is spelled with a 'B', but the 'B' is silent.

  • Unlike the word 'subtext', 'subtext' is spelled with a 'B',

  • but the 'B' is pronounced.

  • I know English is a difficult language, but you will make it, guys.

  • It's just about practice.

  • So let's practice together, shall we?

  • I've got a list of the most common words containing the silent B.

  • So let's not focus on rules.

  • Let's just practice saying those words until you actually get used to their pronunciation.

  • Let's start. Please repeat after me.

  • 'limb'

  • 'numb'

  • 'thumb'

  • 'plumber'

  • 'succumb'

  • 'comb'

  • 'bomb'

  • 'climb'

  • 'crumb'

  • 'lamb'

  • 'tomb'

  • 'womb'

  • 'debt'

  • 'doubt'

  • 'subtle'

  • Good job, guys.

  • Let's now move on to sentences.

  • Repeat after me.

  • 'The plumber worked in the tomb.'

  • 'His thumb was numb.'

  • 'I doubt he has debt.'

  • 'The lamb ate the crumb.'

  • Great, guys.

  • Okay, guys.

  • Thank you very much for watching the video.

  • These were the most common words containing the silent B.

  • I hope you will remember the list.

  • Don't hesitate to watch the video again, and please keep practicing.

  • Practice makes perfect.
