In this video, Crissy will explain the difference between Staff and Stuff. The pronunciation of these two words is different. One has an A and the other a U sound. One of these words is related to HR so a group of people in an organization or department. The other is a noun that identifies generic materials or tasks. Watch the video and then try to record yourself to see if you can produce the different sounds. It’s your challenge for this week!
