    Hello, just asking, isn’t boutique saying ‘o’ (as in the letter o)? All the rest are making the sound of ‘oo’ like ‘soup’, but I’m just not quite confident with boutique. If I am wrong, I am happy to hear it. I appreciate your time reading this 🙂

    Thank you.

      Hi Moira, the Macquarie dictionary says ’boutique’ is pronounced “/buˈtik/ (say booh’teek)” so I think it does belong with ‘soup’ and ‘group’, at least in my accent. Maybe it’s different in your accent. Alison

    PS: Just not quite familiar with the words like ’boutique’.

    Sorry for your inconvenience.
    🙂 thanks, Moira.
