TOP 10 ESL Vowel Mistakes by Jennifer Tarle

Hi everyone,

Jennifer Tarle is among my favorite pronunciation teachers. That’s why I’ve been following her activities, keeping contact her since I published my first article about her. Some weeks ago, she held an online free class about top 10 consonant and a little later about to 10 vowel mistakes. However, consonants can also be tricky and hard to learn, the American vowels are even greater challenge. That’s why I’m going to write about her lesson on vowels. It won’t be only a summary, but I’m also going to give my views and thoughts to some parts of Jennifer lesson.

Tarle Speech - An awesome pronunciation teacher

Hi everyone,

In my previous posts I introduced you to my favorite pronunciation teachers. They are Rachel and
Mandy. I referred to their materials (videos, audios, websites) in several other posts of mine such as classification of English vowel sounds. I still like their activity; however, if I wrote these posts nowadays, they could be little different. Why? I would consider another pronunciation teacher as well whose name is Jennifer Tarle. Today, I would like to write about her activity, Youtube channel and website.

Hi everyone,

After reviewing all the individual vowels, let’s take a deep breathe. Now, the diphthongs are coming. What is a diphthong? It’s a sound that is the subtle combination of two vowel sounds within the same syllable. That means each diphthong consists of two vowel sounds that we learned in the previous lessons. Again and again, I will refer back Rachel’s English (including her video channel) and Mandy’s podcast. Now, we’re going to learn about 6 sounds and because it can be a lot to absorb, I suggest you break it into 3 parts.

Let it be sunshine - Short U (UH) and schwa (UH) vowel sounds

Hi everyone,

After a long break, let’s get back to work. A couple of weeks (months) ago, I introduced a kind of classification of American English vowel sounds.  Then we began to work on vowels in pairs: /i/ Long E (EE) and /ı/ Short I (IH)Sounds ,/æ/ Short A (AA) and /ɛ/ Short E (EH) sounds , /u/ Other OO and /ʊ/ Other U sounds , and [ɑ] Short O and [ɔ] AW sounds . We haven’t finished it yet. Today we’re going to learn about the /ʌ/ (Short U - UH) and /ǝ/ (Schwa - UH) sounds. In this article, I will mention again Rachel’s English (including her video channel) and Mandy’s podcast.

My favorite Nightwish covers

Hi everyone,

After a longer break caused by some unpleasant things, I return to writing, but this post won’t be very serious. Now, let me answer a question about music. I was asked quite often about my favorite style of music, and group. Well, I’m great fan of rock music. If I begin to chat about it, I can hardly finish. I do love a lot of groups from Hungary and other parts of the world. My favorite group outside of Hungary is Nightwish from Finland. What kind of music do they play? You’ll see it, I mean you’ll hear it. At the moment, they are between two albums, and two tours. They may be preparing new songs under the radar, so I have no information about it. I don’t feel like writing about their past, about their former albums. I would rather write about other groups and singers who like performing covers.
