ESL Videos » 60 Minimal Pairs in 4 Minutes (Listen and Repeat)

Pronunciations is an important issue if you are going to be understood when you speak English. It is also important to tune your ear so that you hear sounds accurately and can then copy them well.

The minimal pair videos above focus on pronouncing words that sound very similar.  For example- ferry and very. There are many others pairs of words that sound similar in English. It may not be the first sound that is similar, it can be any sound within a word.  The videos simply give you a model to base your pronunciation on so all you have to do is tune in your ear or listen carefully and try to copy the sound yourself or repeat.
