English pronunciation - SHADE

Yesterday we learned how to use the word shade in English. I learned something too from my students here in Japan. (This is one of the advantages of being an active English teacher, live feedback!) The word shade can be easy to mispronounce if you have never heard it. If you only read the word, the sound is not so clear.

Here is the sound shade makes:

SH is like "Shhh....! This is a library, please be quiet."
ADE is like AID "I cut my finger and now I need a band aid."


"It's a hot and sunny today so let's put our picnic blanket in the shade under that big tree."


I found a song on YouTube called In The Shade. Lucky!
The pronunciation is long because the word is sung not spoken but I hope it's helpful!
