Lesson 35. Me and You, You and Me.
Linking Words Together
|We use the sounds /j/ and /w/ to link a vowel sound at the end of a word with a vowel sound at the beginning of the next word.|
|If the first word ends with a vowel sound like /i/ or /i:/, and the nextword starts with any vowel sound, we use /j/ to link the words. Listen.|
|If the first word ends with a vowel sound like /u/ or /u:/, and the nextword starts with any vowel sound, we use /w/ to link the words. Listen.|

|Listen and repeat these poems.|
