Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Episode 32 – Vocabulary Skill – Recognizing Homophones

I’ve already done Homographs, but now it’s time for Homophones!

These are words that are pronounced the same but spelled differently.  When you learn new words, it’s important to be aware of any other words that are pronounced the same way.

Stairs/stares

Not/knot

For/four
