The Sounds of English – part 1

Here is our second presentation on English pronunciation.

This one focuses on the sounds of English.

The presentation covers:

  • Problem sounds that learners find difficult such as the /θ/ sound at the start of think and the /ð/ sound at the start of this.
  • Minimal pairs such as the very similar sounding ship and sheep.
  • End sounds like the -ed sound at the end of regular past simple verbs such as liked.

As before, make sure you use the fullscreen button and turn up the sound on your computer so you can hear Louise and Barney say the example words and sentences.
