In Bahasa Indonesia words are pronounced the way they are spelled. This often leads to some humorous mispronunciations when Indonesians apply the same rule to English.
It’s a good idea to try and overcome this problem, especially in words and phrases commonly used in IELTS Speaking. One such word is ‘because‘.
If we say ‘because‘ as it is spelled, then it sounds like:
- big cows
However, when a native speaker says ‘because‘, it sounds very much like:
- big horse
So, next time you want to say ‘because‘, say ‘big horse‘.
