      Hi Mishri, I’m not sure what you don’t understand. The spelling CH is used for three main sounds in English, usually depending on whether the word originally came into English from a Germanic language (e.g. child), from French (e.g. chef) or from Greek (e.g. school). So this page has words that are mainly from French with the spelling “ch” pronounced “sh”. Alison
