Many people have emailed me during the past two weeks asking for websites that have American English vowel sounds with audio. I found this site, developed by Dr. Emily Chen, that has sound files for both vowel and consonant minimal pair exercises. It’s quite good because it contrasts all the difficult vowel and consonant sounds. Minimal pair exercises like these will really help you hear the difference between the sounds so that you can pronounce them correctly!
