Vowel sounds

In this video we look at the Vowel sounds from English. Specifically the single vowels, sometimes called Monophthongs.

Vowel Sounds

When we think about the alphabet we normally think of there being 5 vowels A, E, I, O, U. However, when it comes to pronunciation, there are many vowel sounds and these sounds can be spelt in different ways which can be a little inconsistent. This makes things difficult when learning English especially as in many other languages the vowels are pronounced more consistently with how they they are spelled. There are 12 sounds that we will be looking at in this video and they are the single vowels or monophthongs. The place of each symbol on the chart tells us something about how it is produced.

    I appreciate all your efforts, yet I am really discontented because I can not find the /oʊ/ sound within the tutorials. I hope you can add this topic to the vowel section or guide me to it if it were my fault to miss it.
    Accept my regards.
