  • Hello, students.

  • This is Fanny.

  • Welcome to this English pronunciation video.

  • In this video we are going to focus on two English vowel sounds.

  • /ɛ/ and /eɪ/ These are two very important vowel sounds

  • in English.

  • And they sound different even though very similar.

  • Let's start with two example words.

  • The first word is 'let'.

  • Can you hear the sound /ɛ/?

  • 'let' The second word is 'late'.

  • /eɪ/ 'late'

  • So 'let' and 'late' I know to some of you they sound exactly the

  • same.

  • But with a little bit of practice you will hear the difference,

  • so keep watching.

  • By the end of this video, I promise you will improve your hearing and

  • pronunciation of these two vowel sounds.

  • Get ready guys.

  • I'm gonna help you make these sounds /ɛ/ and /eɪ/ in English.

  • I want you to hear the difference and to be able to pronounce them correctly.

  • Also, it's very important to know the IPA spelling,

  • watch how I move my mouth, and as usual repeat after me.

  • I know that you can master these sounds, so let's get to it.

  • First, let's learn how to make the sound /ɛ/.

  • So your tongue is in the middle part of your mouth.

  • Okay, and your mouth and doesn't move.

  • Can you repeat after me?

  • /ɛ/ /ɛ/

  • /ɛ/ Let's now practice with a word please.

  • Repeat after me.

  • let let

  • let For the sound /eɪ/.

  • It's a little bit trickier.

  • It's what we call a diphthong.

  • So it's actually two vowel sounds combined.

  • So as you can see, your mouth moves and your tongue goes up a

  • little as you produce the sound /eɪ/.

  • Can you repeat after me?

  • /eɪ/ /eɪ/

  • /eɪ/

  • With the word 'late'.

  • Repeat after me.

  • late late

  • late Great job!

  • Let's now use minimal pairs.

  • Words that are extremely similar but the vowel sounds change.

  • They're a very good way to practice your vowel sounds.

  • First let's just practice the sounds.

  • So watch how my mouth moves and repeat after me.

  • /ɛ/ /ɛ/

  • /ɛ/ /eɪ/

  • /eɪ/ /eɪ/

  • /ɛ/ /eɪ/

  • /ɛ/ /eɪ/

  • /ɛ/ /eɪ/

  • Let's now use our words 'let' and 'late'.

  • Repeat after me.

  • let let

  • let late

  • late late

  • let late

  • let late

  • let late

  • Excellent job.
