You must have often noticed the vagaries of English Language. Sometimes there is a huge difference between the way the words are written and pronounced. There are many silent letters in words as well. ‘K’ is silent in ‘Knowledge’ and ‘b’ in ‘doubt’. If you are one of those having a tough time with the way English is spoken, tune in to ‘Target – Let’s Learn English’ on DD Odia, every Saturday at 7 pm. Don’t forget to watch the first episode on 3rd September 2016!
