English is such a confusing language! Often there is more than one way to pronounce a single letter or group of letters.
In this video, you’ll learn 25 words where the letters ch together are pronounced “sh”.
Most of these words were taken from French!
These words need to be memorized. There is no “rule” to follow.
*I use the American spelling of mustache. The British spell it moustache.
Other words with “ch” pronounced “sh” (not in video):
chalet (a type of house in the Alps)
chateau (a large castle in France)
chinook (a warm dry wind in winter that blows down from the Rocky Mountains)
Chevrolet (a car brand)
