    Default /zet/ or /zed/

    This transcription starts from 2:46-3:00:

    "This last letter many students, a lot of people, a lot of students in Thailand, in other countries learn this as Ö but in American English the pronunciation is /ziː/."


    I donít know what John is saying here. It is at 2:55. Is he saying that many students, a lot of people, a lot of students in Thailand, in other countries learn this as /zet/ or /zed/, please?

    I couldn't listen to your link but in the UK and many other English-speaking countries, the last letter of the alphabet is pronounced "zed".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
