Mensagem:  I think the main question to your problem is: if there is or not a specific rule for English pronuntiation. So, the answer is yes; there are rules for English, German, Portuguese and other languages as well. The study of sounds in languages is called Phonology. Of course there are exceptions for rules but Phonology helps a lot to understand the structure of sounds in the language in question. Take some time and go to big book stores like Livraria Cultura, ask for phonology books. It is important for a teacher to have an idea of what it means. Many books used by English schools to teach their students, mainly higher interm or advanced courses, have some of these rules. It helps, it helps a lot.
