Pay, eight, laid, and play all have the same vowel sound. In the International Phonetic Alphabet, this sound is represented by an “o”.

True.
False. These words have the same vowel sound, but they are not represented by “o” in the international phonetic alphabet.
False. These words do not have the same vowel sound. Each of these vowel sounds are different from each other.
I didn’t understend even my answer is correct !? ??? Could you explay my please Emma ???

Vladkabatkovich

    The vowel sound is represented by the symbol “e”.
    So the second answer is right.

      wizkhalid

      I’ve ever heard that studying a language which is completely different from our mother tongue is much better to our brain. The most important organ needs to be exercised \o/

Thanks Emma!!Interesting lesson!

knopfler86

Very useful lesson, interesting and exciting. I have to review these front vowels more time because it’s question to practice a lot, I have a little problem with “i” and “I” when I have to identify a word, as with “ae” sometimes because I studied that there are 5 different types of the vowel “a” and we have to pronounce them correctly. I thought that there was 12 vowels in English plus the sound “-ly” that maybe the 13th vowel, therefore they have to listen so many times to identify them. Thanks teacher Emma, it was a very good explanation.

angardiobel

thank you emma for this useful lesson as usual,but why don’t put the spelling ‘ea’ like in ‘great’ with the group which makes the sound ‘e’ and how about examples the spelling’ai’which makes the sound ‘ae’.

SKIKDA

It was a very interesting lesson to know the proper phonetics for each front vowel. Thank you Emma!

Thank you Emma for your video.
Hi all, I am Vivian Nguyen, I want to improve my Enghlish, my id Skype: lami2083

Vivian Nguyen

I think vowels are just: a,e,i,o,u. There is no Y

LeTranBaoKhoa

    Hi LeTranBaokhoa, There is 6 vowels and Y is one of them. It is the same in French to. However she said that in CAKE the E is not a vowel. It is actually but a SILENT vowel. Some vowels are voiced and some are not voiced depending on their position in the word.

    koumbems

Perfect Lesson Emma. It’s always awesome watching your videos. Each person from different cultures has a different difficulty to pronounce, because of the phonetic , however, whether we continue practicing, probably, we are going to get better pronunciation.

Thank you

chaokhing

Thank you very much Emma for the really helpful lesson. By the way, I have learnt many sound which is including almost all vowel sounds and many consonant sounds. But the thing is I can pronounce these sounds individually but it is difficult to pronounce these sounds together when I’m trying to pronounce a word. Could you please create new lesson about what are the things which should be done someone like me to go to the next level. Thanks.

dileepad

Dear Emma!

Thank you very much for your eye-opening lesson. I think for all the Russian ESOL, it is crucial knowing this. In fact, in Russian alphabet and sound system, these differences simply don’t exist.

I wonder how do English natives distinguish between them. Moreover, what is the best way to practice them apart from mirrors?

So far, thanks to you, I’ve understood the difference between these sounds. However, when I encounter them, I don’t realize what is the right sound to make. It’s really hard for me. How can I make them pronounced automatically? What’s the mechanism or secret behind it?

Looking forward to your answer.

Best wishes,
Artur

Arthur
