The Best Way To Pass The Matura English Exam in Westbahnhof
Passing the Matura English exam is very different from speaking English with your friends and family. It’s certainly different from speaking with English natives because they have different accents. Two people will pronounce the same word in different ways.
Given the Matura English exam is a stepping-stone to higher education in an overseas University, speaking English to an advanced level sets you off on the road to success.
There are several ways to learn a second language, but the best way to learn English is to immerse yourself in the language. There are plenty of opportunities for you to do this on the internet.

Learn Matura English with British Native-Speakers in Westbahnhof
Learning Matura English with British-native speakers takes your language skills to the next level. It is the perfect preparation for admittance into the best universities and elite professions.
The principal reason for learning Matura English with a British native is so that you can nail the pronunciation. The oral examination plays a significant part in Matura English.
Yet spoken and written English can be complicated when you’re learning the language at an advanced level.
Linguists acknowledge that English is a weird language. For example, most languages have around five or six vowel sounds. English has 20. Learning how to pronounce words correctly will give you more confidence to speak in English – and to pass the Matura English exam.
Let me give you some examples.
A “ph” is spoken in the same way you would pronounce an “f” and silent letters completely throw students in the oral examination.
Sometimes a C is pronounced like a “ch”. For example, Cello. And just to confuse foreigners, C sometimes sounds like an S, Sh, or K.
If that’s not complicated enough, English also has silent letters that are not pronounced. Some common examples of silent letters in English words are:
Anchor – the ‘h’ is silent
Conscious – the ‘c’ is silent
Knew – the ‘k’ is silent so sounds like ‘new’ but has a different meaning!
Thumb – the ‘b’ is silent
Light – the ‘g’ is silent
Muscle – the ‘c’ is silent
Then there are words that are spelt the same but pronounced differently – such as live and live, read and read, lead and lead. The pronunciation of these words is determined by the context of the other words in a sentence.
Yes, it is confusing.
You can’t always rely on general rules for spelling either. For example, the commode rule that states “I before the E except after C” works most of the time, but not all of the time.
My neighbour can’t spell weird right.
Did you spot the two examples?
In fact, there are many words in the English language where the E comes before the I despite the absence of the C. Check out more examples.
