Let me make this absolutely clear...

It's pronounced "skizm," not "shizum," OK?

In English the "sch" combo separates the two consonant sounds with one soft "s" and the other a hard "ch" like the Italian "chiesa".

As in "school". You don't pronounce it "shool," do you?

So stop saying "shizum".

Also, it's "suck-sess" not "sussess".

"Success". The reason there are two c's in the middle is because the second one is followed by an "e" which in English softens it. The first is hard, the second soft.

Say it with me: "suck-sess" "skizm".

Right? Got it?
