How to Pronounce words with '-aught' & '-ought'

Do you have problems pronouncing words with '-aught' & '-ought'? You're NOT alone. Even my most advanced students pause before they say these words, afraid of the U, G & H. But don't be afraid! They're actually so easy!

If you can say 'GOT, NOT, forGOT and roBOT,' then you can pronounce thought, bought, taught and brought. 

I'm going to tell you a story about a man named Mr. Bot, and I want you to listen to the words that rhyme (that have the same sound). Whenever you want to say one of these difficult words, remember Mr. Bot and what he TAUGHT you. :)

Have a lovely day!
