And in today's video, I'm gonna focus on two different vowel sounds in English: /ɒ/ and /əʊ/ Let's take two example words. The first example word is 'hop'. Can you hear the /ɒ/ sound? 'hop' The second word is 'hope'. The sound is /əʊ/. Can you hear it? 'hope' So 'hop' and 'hope'. I know they sound very similar, but if you practice with me I promise by the end of this video you will hear and pronounce them correctly. So keep watching. Get ready guys. I'm gonna help you make these sounds /ɒ/ and /əʊ/ in English. I want you to hear the difference and to be able to pronounce them correctly. Don't forget it's important to know the IPA spelling, watch how I move my mouth, and try to repeat after me. I know you can do this so let's get started. Let's first learn how to make the sound /ɒ/ So when you produce this sound, your mouth is round, your tongue is very low in your mouth, and it's a very short sound /ɒ/ Repeat after me. /ɒ/ /ɒ/ /ɒ/ Let's practice saying the word 'hop'. Repeat after me. 'hop' 'hop' 'hop' Now with the sound /əʊ/. The sound /əʊ/ is a diphthong, so it's actually two vowel sounds - /əʊ/ And as you can see, when I say it, my mouth is round. It moves and it gets smaller. /əʊ/ Repeat after me. /əʊ/ /əʊ/ /əʊ/ Let's practice with the word 'hope'. Repeat after me. 'hope' 'hope' 'hope' Good guys. Let's now use minimal pairs – words that are extremely similar, but different vowel sounds. They're a very good way to practice. First, let's practice only the sounds. Repeat after me and watch how my mouth moves. /ɒ/ /ɒ/ /ɒ/ /əʊ/ /əʊ/ /əʊ/ /ɒ/ /əʊ/ /ɒ/ /əʊ/ /ɒ/ /əʊ/ Let's practice with two words 'hop' and 'hope'. Again, repeat after me. 'hop' 'hop' 'hop' 'hope' 'hope' 'hope' 'hop' 'hope' 'hop' 'hope' 'hop' 'hope' Great Job. Okay guys. Let's now read minimal pairs together. I want you to repeat after me. And don't forget to watch my mouth - how it moves. Let's get started. block bloke blot bloat bod bowed bond boned bossed boast clock cloak cod code cop cope con cone cost coast doss dose dot dote god goad jock joke lob lobe mod mode mop mope mot moat nod node non known not note odd owed pop Pope rob robe rod road rot rote shod showed slop slope smock smoke sock soak sod sewed sop soap stock stoke Todd toad tossed toast tot tote want won't walk woke Amazing guys. Let's move on. Okay guys let's a practice further. I'm gonna show you some words. I want you to read them, but be careful use the proper English vowel sound. Is it /ɒ/ or is it /əʊ/? Let's get to it. Let's start with the first word. Is it 'jock' or 'joke'? 'joke' Next word, 'clock' or 'cloak'? 'clock' Next word. 'cost' or 'coast'? 'coast' Next word. 'rob' or 'robe'? 'rob' Next word. 'want' 'won't'? 'want' Good. Then we have 'rob' or 'robe'? 'robe' in this case. 'cost' or 'coast'? It's 'cost'. Next word. 'clock' or 'cloak'? 'cloak' Next word. 'jock' or 'joke'? It's 'jock'. And finally, 'want' or 'won't'? 'won't' Very good. Great job guys. Let's move on. Okay guys. Let's now practice with sentences containing /ɒ/ and /əʊ/ English vowel sounds. Pay attention and repeat after me. First sentence. 'Rob wrote an odd note'. Second sentence. 'We won't joke about Todd's bod'. And finally, 'We don't want a cop on that road'. Amazing students. Let's move on. That was amazing guys. I know you now have a better understanding of the English vowel sounds /ɒ/ and /əʊ/. Now keep practicing. It takes a lot of speaking, a lot of listening, a lot of time to really master these vowel sounds. But you can do it.
