Reminder: Read the text below for comprehension. Then put it away and LISTEN to the podcast. Give your eyes a rest and exercise your ears. Do you know the expression "To go down the drain"?

This episode is an experiment. I'm not going to provide any text. Like a baby learning its first language, I just want you to listen and play with what you hear. Above all, remember that babies don't waste a second worrying about pronunciation, grammar, or any other grown-up stuff. They just listen and let their amazing brains do all the heavy lift…

This lesson is the first in a series on American English vowel sounds. It is primarily intended for Spanish speakers but won't harm anyone else. I promise! Today's sounds are the [i] sound in fit, sit, or bit, and the [ee] sound in feet, seat, and beat. Part One: Let's start with a few sentences which include both sounds. I'll read each sentence tw…
 
In this podcast we'll practice with the "th" sounds in English. This is the sound you hear in the word "the" and the word "think". The "th" in "the" is voiced which means your vocal cords vibrate when you make the sound. In "think" the "th" sound is unvoiced--the vocal cords do not vibrate. Part One of this lesson is a listening exercise. I wrote a…
 
If you are a native speaker of French and have studied English, then you have probably run into the /h/ problem. This sound, which Americans make when we say "Hello" and "How are you" and "Ha ha ha", does not exist in French. This makes two problems for French speakers. 1) Problem one: The sound is dropped. So I say Hello and the French speaker say…
 
In earlier podcasts we looked at verbs ending in "-ed" where the sound is "t", like tricked or trucked. In this episode, the examples have the same past tense ending, "-ed", but the sound is now a "d". In some cases an extra syllable is added (and added is an example!): for example in rejected or interrupted. Sentences in this lesson: guarded - The…
 
'R' is everywhere. And, unfortunately, the 'R' sound in American English is different from the equivalent sound in French, Spanish, German and for all I know, every other language. So here is a quick conversation to help you practice this tricky sound. Listen a few times first and then repeat as directed. Hi John. Is something the matter? There sur…
 
In this podcast we'll look at some more verbs where the ‘-ed’ past tense ending is pronounced ’t’. You'll hear the 't' sound if the verb ends in these sounds: ’s’, ‘sh’, or ‘ch’: Dress - dressed: Sally was only four but she dressed herself in the morning. Face - faced: The small house faced south. Brush - brushed: The man never brushed his hair. To…
 
Sometimes the "ed" at the end of a verb, used to indicate past tense, is pronounced with a "t" sound. To make it worse, in words like "looked" you get the combo: k+t. Try to find that in Spanish. Sentences in this podcast: He tricked his brother. She liked his t-shirt. We talked for hours. They worked from sunup to sundown. I was texting and I walk…

И [ee] – Russian И is one of the so-called soft vowels (we will talk about them in the next lessons). It is shorter than the sound in the words ‘people’ and ‘feet’.
