About the course

Do you hear a difference in the vowel in words like "sit" and "seat"? In this lesson, we will look at the "i" vowel (found in words like "feet" and "heat") and contrast it to the "I" vowel (found in words like "fit" and "feet"). Hearing the differences between these two vowels is important. When you hear the difference between the two sounds, you can make improvements to your pronunciation.
