How to pronounce 'vehicle'

 

This lesson is about a moving machine with wheels and an engine. A vehicle.

Veh hi cle

 Many students pronounce this word with three syllables. They also mispronounce them:

 Vay he kle

 In fact, this word is pronounced as a two syllable word – the 'i' in the middle is not pronounced:

 Veh i cle

 Veh is pronounced like ear or near.

 Ear near veer veh

 Listen and practise. Repeat after me:

 Ear     near     veer     veh      veh      veh       veh

 The second syllable, cle is pronounced like pull.

 pull     full     kull     cle

 Listen and practice. Repeat after me:

 pull      full      kull      cle      cle      cle      cle

Now let's put the two sounds together.

 Veh (veer) cle (kull)

 Listen and practise. Repeat after me:

 vehicle       vehicle       vehicle       vehicle        vehicle
