There are six types of syllables, all referring to each word’s vowels: closed syllables (ex: not), open syllables (ex: no), silent syllables (ex: note), combined syllables (ex: nail), controlled syllables (ex: bird) and consonant syllables (ex: table, where the final syllable is created by a consonant+e at the end of the word).

Of course, learning about how syllables are divided in English is crucial for ESL to ensure proper pronunciation.
