    Confused - how to pronouce? "abuses", "teaches", "reaches", "catches" and so on

    Hi teachers,

    When I was in school, my teacher taught me tenses. I learnt them very well. To pronounce a word correctly, I got an Oxford Dictionary. In Present Indefinite "s" or "es" with the verb is frequently used when the subject is a singular noun. But I don't know how to pronounce a verb correctly when "es" is added.

    "abuses", "teaches", "reaches", "catches" and so on. Please tell me the pronunciation of these words here using phonetic symbols. I'll be very thankful to you.

    If you have a link that can help me learn it, please do share.

    Many thanks.
