These two vowel sounds are very similar. But once you get the trick easy peasy, lemon squeezy. So here we are in the Phanatic International world of alphabets, There's this symbol that looks like in A and e getting together. The other sound looks like and a sort of, but it's not, Um, I have never learned the international phonetic alphabet. If you have learned that you're lucky all systems go would I know. And what I will teach you is my brain. This is on a sound, and this is an all sound. The very, very important thing is that you use your mouth when you talk all the time. This word your mouth is open a little bit, and it's Ah, Uh huh. When we say this word or this letter, it's a Oh, uh, you're gonna make your mouth from a no sound and drop it open. Uh, so it's, uh ah, Let's try this. The first ones that we're going to dio are the ah sound. This is a relaxed mouth. Your mouth is open, not as wide auras azi other one. So we're gonna try this bag. Bag, hat, hat. Dan. Dan Dan is a male name. It has a capital. Every time you see a capital letter in the English alphabet, it's because it's a proper noun. It's a person's name or place. Name. Dan. The next word is caps, caps. Well, Cat, cat. You'll notice when I'm saying these my mouth opens and closes quickly. The next word is sac Sack. Let's review this bag hat Dan caps cat and sack. Next, we're going to go on to the other Sound this song song? Yeah, sound. Let's see that this sound is when your mouth has to be open. Start with the oh and drop it. Bog bog, Your mouth is very loose and open. Bog heart Who heart Dawn? Dawn again. This is a male name. It can be a female name, too, because it begins to the capital Letter. Cops, cops, Cops is a slang word for police caught caught caught is a little bed that you can pull out in an emergency and have a snooze or sleep on caught. And the last word is sock socks are things you wear on your feet sometimes in the winter to keep your toes warm, They go under your shoes. Do you wear socks? Is kind of important in the wintertime in Canada. So the next thing that we're going to do is we're going to contrast the two sounds The first time I contrast the sounds. I'm going to do it in a very exaggerated way to help you. I want you to repeat the second time we do it. I'm gonna say it in a more natural way to help you improve your listening. So you're doing pronunciation and listening today at the same time. Lucky you. Let's go. Ready? Don't. The first word is bag, bog bag Bog. We're number two hat, heart hat, Hot Dan Dawn Dan Dawn caps, Cops, caps Cops now cat caught, cat caught. And the last one sack sock sack sock. This time, when I compare the two, I'm going to do it in a more natural way to help with your yngling listening bag. Bog hat hot. Then don caps, cops, cat caught sack sock. If you pay attention to your mouth, how far it opens, you're going to be able to pronounce these words like a regular English speaker. Till then, Toodles.
