Video transcript


The sound ‘ei/eg’ can be written in two ways. You can either write it ‘ei’ or you can write it ‘eg’. And when you try to pronounce this sound you can think of it as going from the sound ‘æ’ to the sound ‘i’. And I will do this now very slowly first, ‘æi’. And this was extremely slowly, but that is also how you should start when you practice it and once you master the sound then you can say it a bit more quickly. So, I will do that for you now a few times. Æi æi æi. And now I will read a few example words that you can repeat after me. Hei, ei, jeg, vei, meg, nei.
