Big cows, big horse, because

In Bahasa Indonesia words are pronounced the way they are spelled. This often leads to some humorous mispronunciations when Indonesians apply the same rule to English.

It's a good idea to try and overcome this problem, especially in words and phrases commonly used in IELTS Speaking. One such word is because.

If we say because as it is spelled, then it sounds like:

big cows

big cows

However, when a native speaker says because, it sounds like:

big cows

big horse

So, next time you want to say because, say big horse.
