English Pronunciation Exercises: minimal pairs [eɪ/ɛ] tail/tell, whale/well, fail/fell

Hello Everyone!

Today we have another pronunciation practice with some minimal pairs! I hope you are all getting in enough pronunciation practice. Remember, your pronunciation often makes your first impression when you meet someone new, so make sure that you keep practising!

Here are the words we practised pronunciation with today:

tail tell whale well fail fell mate met raid red

and… here are their phonetic transcriptions:

teɪl tɛl weɪl wɛl feɪl fɛl meɪt mɛt reɪd rɛd

Remember to pay attention to the shape of my mouth and the sounds I am making when you watch and repeat after me in this video =-)
