If you want to learn the Aussie accent and perfect your Australian vowel sounds.. this is the lesson for you!
How do you know if you need to work on your vowel sounds? Hot tip, if your mother tongue is on a different ‘branch’ to English on the language tree above – you probably pronounce your vowel sounds differently to Australian English.
Did you know vowel sounds are the major difference between Australian pronunciation compared with American, New Zealand or British English?
Vowel sound errors are often the cause of communication breakdown for example, pronouncing ‘cat’ with the wrong vowel will sound like ‘cut’!
If you want to improve your accent and learn the aussie accent, you need to perfect your Australian vowel sounds. In this lesson, I explain the pronunciation of 1 category of the three ‘types’ of aussie vowels – short vowels, using the international phonetic alphabet.
