The Parts of the Body in English and Their Pronunciation

Our body goes with us wherever we go. How could we try to learn a language and forget about the body? That is why one of the English lessons that we consider very useful is that of the body parts. On more than one occasion, you will need to accurately describe pain or discomfort. It is also important to know the correct pronunciation so that the people you are speaking to will know what you are talking about.

We have compiled the most important body parts with their pronunciation. We have also included a practical example that will help you to memorize them all simply. We recommend that you read this article and perform some additional practice exercises to make sure that you learn all of the vocabulary and the correct pronunciation. Let’s begin! 

The Basic and the Visible 
Let’s begin with the body parts that we all learned at school when we were young. You surely already know some of the following in English. 

The Extremities 
If you already knew more than two of the words from the previous list, then the extremities will definitely not be a challenge. Apart from the basic words, we have included some others that are not so obvious. 

The Internal Organs 
These words are also essential when at a doctor’s appointment or even when you simply feel a bit of discomfort. That is why it is important that you know them well so that you can correctly express what you are feeling. 

As you can see, this list has not been exhaustive, since our body has many parts. But the vocabulary you have learned in this article will be extremely useful on a day-to-day basis. Now, if you are interested in further enriching your vocabulary, it would be a good idea to dedicate some time every day to learning English.
