Hi Simon!
I found that Patients and Patience have the same pronounciation. Is it right?
Best regards.

Patients (ˈpeɪ.ʃənts) and Patience (ˈpeɪ.ʃəns) are almost the same.

7. comfortable

Well, now I've heard the 'ts' sound in number 6.

Thank you!

1 and 6 are homophones in some accents.

I got confused by sounds patients
Could not differentiate the 'ts' sound at end:

hostel/hostile cycling curtains attitude software patients comfortable analysis secondary cattle

Hi Simon,

I have a problem with the first word "hostel". I couldn't able to hear the 'l' sound in the above word. Instead, I hear only "hosto". I tried several times, however, I couldn't able to get the 'l" sound. Could you give me some tips on how to improve my listening?

Thank you.

I thought NO.1 was hostile...
