In today's episode...

Here’s another superb advanced English pronunciation lesson for you guys!

In this episode, I am going to teach you the difference between the /ɔ/ and /oː/ sounds.

The /ɔ/ sound is more formally known as the open-mid back rounded vowel.

On the other hand, the /oː/ sound is known as the close-mid back rounded vowel.

Let’s call them the long and short O sounds of the Australian English pronunciation key.

First, I will teach you how to say words with the /ɔ/ sound.

Then, I will teach you how to say words with the /oː/ sound.

We will then practice saying minimal pairs — yes, like cock vs cork!

And finally, listen up well because I will give you an exercise to see if you can identify the long and short O sounds with some selected words.

Hope this video helps you guys!
