Session 13 is another ponethic session. This time we are going to practise the /e:/ sound and the /ei/ sound.

Now listen to these words and find out the difference:
Now let's compare both sounds:
men -- main
test -- taste
let -- late
get -- gate
wet -- wait
mad -- made
fret -- freight
sell -- sale
tell -- tale
It's important that you listen to these sounds before you read the words because the spelling is often different from the pronunciation.
OK, I hope to meet you in our English class where you can tell me your tale.
