Notes:  

The English language evolved from the German language, and there are some words in English (like "light") that contain "gh" for historical reasons; but these two letters are sil.  Do not pronounce them.  "Light" sounds like "lite", "right" sounds like "rite,"  "sight" sounds like "site" but they are all different words with different meanings.

The English "vowel" letters are:   a,  e,  i,  o,  and  u .  Each one of these letters has two or more different sounds--unlike Spanish and Portuguese.  For example, the first "e" in "even" has a "long" sound (eee); but the first "e" in "ever" or "forever" has a "short" sound.  Here are some pairs of words with a "long 'e' " in the first word and a "short 'e' " in the second word:

meet - met,   seeks - sex,   need - Ned,   reed - red,   weed - wed,  etc.
