I want to give my two cents (pequena contribuição)
Quando estava estudando pronuncia, achava que só a letra "e" no final das palavras que era muda (silent) mas depois descobri que existem outras. Compartilho este texto com voces que explica outras letras em outros casos.
Espero que gostem, abraços, Taísy Silva
