In today's episode...

G’day, you mob!

In today’s Australian English Pronunciation lesson, I’m going to teach you the difference between two E sounds: /e/ and /e:/

We will begin this lesson with a practice on how to say each sound – listen carefully to the sounds made!

I will then give you a set of minimal pairs of words so you can learn how to distinguish each sound.

And lastly, stay until the end of this video lesson. Listen to the vowel sounds and determine if it’s a short e or long e sound.

See you in the next lesson!
