English Pronunciation | Vowel Sounds | Improve Your Accent & Speak Clearly


right now we’re going to study English vowel sounds why because you can get yourself into a lot of trouble by using the wrong vowel sound in English words so we need to fix that right okay if you’ve watched my IPA introduction video then you’ll know exactly what all these symbols mean this is the international phonetic alphabet and I use it a lot when I’m teaching pronunciation to my English students if you don’t know what they are that’s okay you just need to watch the video up there first then you can watch this one that video will make this video much easier to understand okay so these are all the English vowel sounds these are the ones are diphthongs which are also vowel sounds but there is another video that I’ve made especially about diphthong sounds you can watch it here so there are all of these English vowel sounds but only five English vowel letters a e I owe you how does that work let’s use the letter E as an example when you see the letter E in an English word it can be pronounced in a few different ways short e as in egg long e as in she long with an accent as in cafe or the lazy schwa sound oh the sound is so lazy Oh like eleven eleven so let’s look at this group of English sounds remember that their sounds not English letters now let’s look at the first two sounds e and E these Psalms caused a few problems English learners e and e let’s look at this example beach it has the long vowel sound in this word e beach if you mispronounce this long vowel sound and use the short e sound you’ll say bitch that’s redwood beach each here’s another example sheet sheet it uses the long vowel sound but if you accidentally use the short vowel sound you’ll say shit that is also a really rude word so long vowel sounds and short vowel sounds are important in English the short sound is it hit sing bit which disk the long vowel sound is e meat eat beach sheet believe next we have the vowel sound oh you’ll hear that in words like book cook sugar and then we have the longer sound o you’ll hear this sound in words like you to shoe whoo computer let’s move on it’s also easy to confuse the e vowel sound with the short vowel sound a egg 10 left excellent below that we have ah ah you’ll hear this sound in words like cat flat compact that lets go through the middle now next we have my favorite sound it’s the lazier sound in English it’s also the most commonly heard sound in English you’ll hear it a lot today teacher the around then there’s a ah as in her word first work bird notice that the same English sound can be used for all of those different letters in that example all the words her work and first use different letters but make the same sound that’s why learning the IPA is going to help you pronounce English words better then we have the all sound or you can hear this word pronounced in or for BOTS perform saw underneath we move from the ah sound – ah ah you can hear this sounded words like cup butt butter truck then there’s the R sound ah ah as in far cut and hot then we have the O sound or you can hear this sound in not on log God forgot so that’s it for English vowel sound pronunciation today make sure you subscribe to my channel down here so that you can get my next video which is all about English vowel sound pronunciation with diphthongs but right now I want you to go to my website and download the free worksheet that I’ve made just for this video lesson so you can practice practice practice the link to that worksheet is right in the comment section just down here or you can go to my website see you next time
