  1. Unlike the Spanish, in which we can divide the words by syllables, in English, the words are separated by sounds. For example, the word board not thus divided it: bo-ard, because this word is composed by a sound only. For this reason it can not be divided.

  2. A very personal opinion I can say that in this tutorials there is very important to learn to pronounce and distinguish each one of these sound at the time of a Word; taking into account that we be an error to not pronounce properly or to make some gesture. Leaving this as the experience of seeing the importance of learning English.
