What are homophones?

Homophones are words that sound the same, but have different spellings and meanings, e.g.flower and flour.

Can you match the homophones – word pairs that sound the same, but have different meanings?
E.g:two‘ and ‘too‘.

    Hi Anna,

    I’ve got a problem. I couldn’t play the game because I’ve got an old browser version. But I could see the rest of the web. I played the quiz (only first level) and it was very funny and useful to learn new vocabulary. If I could listen to the pronunciation of the words it would be much better. I’ll try to download the new version but I need more time.
    Thank you for helping us to improve our language.

    See you tomorrow,

    I have played and enjoyed with this game. I made very easily first and second level but the third level is more difficult.

    I made the Quiz, only first level, and I found it easy. Tomorrow, I will fight with second and third.

    I printed the Factsheet and the Worksheet for reading.

    I had a look to the rest of the web and it seem to be a web for helping adult people in Britain, not for English students from abroad. I have clicked in the link Numbers–Time Tables and I have found exercices about Multiplication.

    Good ones, (“buenas,”)
    Very funny and interesting to see how different could be written the homophones.
    Maybe we have an idea about a difficult pronunciation of some words, and then they sound easier than we thought.
    See you next year.

    I’ve been spending some time looking at the different sections, i.e. Factsheet, Game or Quiz, and I think the material is very good and useful. I have been learning the pronunciation of some words I was pronouncing in a bad way (for instance I remember PEAR or BARE), and at the same time, I have had the opportunity of learning some new vocabulary.

    By the way, I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year 2010!

    This exercise helps you to pronounce some words that you know, and other words that you have no idea how to say that, or simply I prononced them in a way, and I was wrong. Is useful.

    Hi Anna and everybody!!
    First of all I want to wish you an a happy new year 2010!!
    This game was very funny and was useful too! Teorically seems very easy, but maybe in practice I can´t find the difference between the homophones yet! I need more practice.
    See to all of you tomorrow in class. 🙂

    I played the Quiz. With the first level I felt so succesful but when I did itthe last level I thought that it’s a good exercise to improve pronunciation.
    Thank you for the link.

    See you.
