Silent letters

Silent letters are letters that you can't hear when you say the word, but that are there when you write the word.There are no rules, you just have to learn them. For example, we do not pronounce the letter 'k' in knight (it should sound like 'night'). Here are two quizzes, one at elementary and one at pre-intermediate level, and a really cool game (different levels) with sound to get some practise. Enjoy!
