Hi Mrs. Jade,
These lessons about IPA help to improve so much.
I can understand many things just listening. On this account I think I getting better my pronunciation as well.

I am surprised ‘word’ wasn’t used as an example.

Thank you Jade for this short but very interesting lesson. To pronounce correctly is not an easy work for not native. In relation to the quiz, I did a mistake at the first question. The word walk was probably the only one I used to pronounce correctly, the others not. As you suggest I indicate another word that is not properly pronounce by not native. The word “word”. Also in this case the “o” should be pronounce with “ɜ” and not with “ɔ”. Is it correct?
