The vowel sounds in American English are quite different from the vowel sounds in other languages. Perhaps your native language doesn’t have the [ər] sound as in bird and earth, or the [i] sound as in hit or kiss. Maybe you’ve wondered how American English speakers move their mouth, lips, and tongue to pronounce the vowel sounds in English. Well, you will learn all about how to correctly move your mouth for American English vowel pronunciation, which will result in reducing your non-English accent.
For each of the vowel sounds, you will first learn how to shape your mouth. You’ll see a short video clip during the lecture that demonstrates how to make the sound. Then, you’ll practice the pronunciation of the basic sound itself, then words using the sound in various positions, and finally sentences and phrases that have words using those vowel sounds. Then there exercises contrasting the various vowel sounds taught in the first part of the course.
