  • Hello, I'm John Russell.

  • Today we are going to begin exploring some of the most difficult vowel sounds for non native speakers of English.

  • Let's review the IT and E sounds, which we have explored in previous videos.

  • If you haven't seen those videos yet, you might want to watch them first.

  • The difference between E and E is important because mixing up the two vowel sounds can cause confusion or embarrassment.

  • It is almost always spelled with the letter I, as in dig while E is more commonly spelled with two letters e or E A like feet or dream.

  • Remember, you should relax your lips and tongue for the it sound.

  • Your lips should be tense for the e sound.

  • Let's practice for this exercise.

  • You will need a mobile phone computer or some other way to record your voice.

  • I want you to pause the video when you see the text and then record yourself reading the text.

  • Then compare your recording toe.

  • My voice.

  • Pay special attention to the E, and it sounds.

  • Is he still feeling sick?

  • No, but he is feeling really weak.

  • Is the if vowel sound really difficult?

  • No.

  • If you practice using it, the sound becomes unbelievably easy.

  • That's all for today.

Hello, I'm John Russell.
