    Lightbulb Syllable Division

    Hey there. My name is Marcelo and I'm from Brazil.
    I'm trying to study English syllable division and I'd like to know if you native speakers study it when at school.
    If you do so, How do you learn it?
    Isn't it related to the sounds of the words? Especially vowel sounds? How do you recognize them before dividing?

    Thanks!

    Re: Syllable Division

    Welcome to the forum.

    We certainly didn't study it at any of my schools. I haven't studied it since in any depth.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Marcelo, please change your profile name to comply with the following forum rule:

    We rarely have a need to study syllable division. Why do you need to do so?

    I did not learn it at school, and I went to school a fair few years before word processors became the norm.
