Sometimes we have to spell our name
and other important information without any mistakes.
When we want to be sure that our listener knows which letters we are saying, we can say a sentence using a word that begins with that letter. Eg. My name is George. That's G for Girl, E for Elephant, O for Orange, R for Rabbit, G for Girl and E for Elephant.
We should use well-known two-syllable words to be clear. A short one syllable word may not be clear. Eg. pen can be confused with ben but Penguin is clearer, although Person might be a better word as more people know it.
