When I was in class 5th, I used to ask a lot of questions One day, I asked my English Teacher, "Why do we ignore some letters in pronunciation eg. the letter H .......in Hour, Honour. .....etc. ...... My English Teacher said, " We are not ignoring them; they're considered silent " (I was even more confused) During the lunch break, my Teacher gave me her packed lunch and asked me to heat it in the Cafeteria. I ate all the food and returned her the empty container My English Teacher : What happened? I told you to go and HEAT my food, you are returning me an empty container. I replied, "Madam, I thought 'H' was silent.” Dedicated to all our English Teachers.
