The Letter S (The English Alphabet)
The letter S is the Nineteenth letter in The English Alphabet. It is also the fifteenth Consonant in The English Alphabet.
As with every letter in The English Alphabet, The Letter S has two versions in the written form.
These two versions are called: The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case.
The Upper-Case S looks like this:
The Lower-Case S looks like this:
Notice that the only difference between The Upper-Case and The Lower-Case S is the size. The Lower-Case S is just a bit smaller. You will find that this is the same for quite a few letters in The Alphabet.
The letter S is only pronounced one way in The English language.

As you learn English, you will notice that The Letter S is often combined with The Letter H. When this happens, it is pronounced differently.
When combined with The letter H (like this: Sh, sh) the two letters, together, have a different sound.
