    VOWEL RULES
    Short Vowels: when there is 1 vowel letter separated by 2 consonants then you will pronounce that vowel letter with a short pronunciation. For example: “jet”, and “pepper”.

    Long Vowels Rule 1: when 2 vowels go walking, the first one does the talking. This means that when there are 2 vowels together, the first vowel will pronounce its letter name. For example, in the word “please”, the letter ‘E’ in the word is pronounced, not ‘A’.

    Long Vowels Rule 2: when 2 vowels are separated by only 1 consonant, then the first vowel gets the long pronunciation. For example: “Pete”.
