WORD: Who Wants A "visa"?

It's time to share a word I learnt from my Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary. Erm . . . Sorry. I wanted to grab your attention with a crazy title. Did it work? :D


Let's learn how to pronounce this word together. Shall we?

Lesson 3
Word of the Day: visa

Meaning: an official mark or stamp on a passport that allows someone to enter or leave a country usually for a particular reason

PronunciationI had always pronounced the 's' as 's' in sip. But discovered it should be pronounced as 'z' in zip.

Wrong = \ˈvi.sa\
Right = \ˈvi.zə \

Listen below:



Sentence used: Gloria wants a visa to visit London

Now you know. ;)
