How to pronounce Opportunity

Last week I gave you an important tip on how to pronounce long words, or more specifically, how to address words with suffixes. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the link.

This week I’d like to talk about one ‘long word’ in particular: Opportunity.

Say it to yourself out loud and then watch the video. Does it sound the same?

Go ahead and practice this word a few times separately, and then, in context.

Here are a few sentences for practice: 

It’s a great opportunity

There are many job opportunities out there?

I jumped on the opportunity

You don’t wanna miss out on this opportunity.

Remember, every time you learn something new, you need to practice and use it enough times in order to make it your own!
