  1. Very helpful post. I like the photos with each one as it helps to remember. Homophones can be very tricky. This also helped with my pronunciation as I did not know air and heir were the same. Thank you.

    • Hi Susie,
      Thank you for taking the time to read the post and for your comment. I’m glad you found the article helpful. You’re right homophones can be tricky .Even natives speakers have trouble remembering some of them so you can imagine how much harder it is for English language learners.

  2. Hi! I am glad that you are back with the part 2!

    Just when I thought that I know most of the words, your article pop-ed up and you proved me wrong. Most of them are pretty easy to differentiate such as sun and son; pie and pi or be and bee. However, I never heard of the word “heir” and “tow” until now and I would like to thank you for introducing them to me. I succeeded and completed all 15 sentences right from the first try, after learning the new words :D! Keep up with the good work!

    • Hi Andrei,
      Thanks, once again, for visiting the site. Yes, you’re right most of the words in the list are not that hard to differentiate but I’m happy you found a couple that were new to you. I’m also glad that they now form part of your expanding English language vocabulary. And as I always say, we never completely learn any language. There is always something new to learn. Thanks again for the read and the comment. Glad you did well on the quiz. Have a great day!

  3. Hi Chris
    Thanks for posting these homophones and the pictures that go along with them. I think that really helps people to visualize. This really brought me back to school! I don’t mix up any in this set, but I know people who do. English is such a difficult language! Even for us people who speak it!

    • Hi Julie,
      Thank you for visiting the site and taking the time to read the post. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. It is true that not all native speakers have trouble with homophones but many do. It is very common, however, for English language learners to have problems with them and I agree with you English is not an easy language to master.

  4. Hi Chris,

    Great article! I never even knew what homophones were! So thank you for putting a name to what I see. Great examples and really cleared a few things up for me. Keep up the great work Chris 🙂

    • Hi Kev,
      Thanks for taking the time to read the article. I’m glad you found it helpful.
      All grammatical concepts have names it’s just that as native speakers we don’t always hear about them because the language comes naturally to us. The names surface when we encounter articles or lessons created for non-native speakers.
