Read explanation

The letter e at the end of a word is often called “the magic e” and there is a reason for it. The last e changes the precedent vowel sound from short to long. For example, rod /rɒd/ — rode /rəʊd/, past /pɑːst/ — paste /peɪst/, lit /lɪt/ — lite /laɪt/ etc. These special voiced online exercises will help you learn the difference in pronunciation between words with e and without e. Thus reading new words will become easier for you.
