The Chaos of English Pronunciation

How did I ever learn to speak English?  How does ANYONE ever learn this language?  English does have rules of spelling and pronunciation–I don’t know them!  If you speak another language, you quickly understand that usually there is no reason for competitive contests like “Spelling Bees” to test students…because spelling and pronunciation are sensible ALREADY!

Enjoy my rendition of Gerard Nolst Trenité’s “The Chaos of English Pronunciation.”  Apparently this Dutchman wrote longer versions of this, but hey–this is long enough for me! 😀
