Prononciation : Pull/Pool (minimal pairs)

Voici est le symbol pour la voyelle qu’on entend dans le mot “good”

Voici est le symbol pour la voyelle qu’on entend dans le mot “fruit”

 

 

 

Certains mots n’ont qu’une petite différence au niveau de prononciation comme “pull/pool”. On appelle ces mots (en anglais) “minimal pairs”.

Dans la video j’ai utilisés les mots suivants comme exemples:

pull/pool
full/fool
soot/suit
wood/wooed (vieux mot qui veut dire “courtiser, faire la cour à quelqu’un)
look/ Luke (prénom)

D’autres exemples de mots avec [uː] et [ʊ]


food
fruit
spoon
moon
boot
juice
mousse
soup

ʊ
butcher
good
sugar
cook

prononciation anglaise – war-woe

Ecoutez attentivement. Choisissez le mot que vous croyez avoir entendu. Est-ce que le “o” comme “go” ou le “or” comme “door”? Appuyez sur pause si la vidéo va trop vite!

Prononciation anglaise: le son ‘th’ (1)

This is a very popular English learning channel on Youtube. Jennifer has a lovely approach, a very good teaching methodology, and a soothing, attractive voice. I’m sure her students adore her!!

Jennifer’s sentence to practise is this:

“Kathy thanked both Theo and Thelma for everything.”

My advice:

Try saying the sound ‘s’. As you make this sound, push your tongue forward until it touches your front teeth. You will hear the sound change from ‘s’ to ‘th’.

Another technique which is quite effective. Put some chewing-gum in your mouth and push it on to the roof of your mouth right behind your front teeth. Now try saying ‘s’ – it will sound like ‘th’! When you can do this automatically, you won’t need the chewing-gum any more…
