Do THIS to Learn /uː/ Sound (British Accent)

In this British English Pronunciation tutorial, we look at the /u:/ sound.  This tutorial is for English Accent Training.

This sound appears in words such as ‘boot’, ‘food’, and ‘choose’.

It is easily confused with the /ʊ/ sound that appears in words such as ‘put’. For example:

‘foot’ vs ‘food’

‘Luke’ vs ‘look

‘suit’ vs ‘soot’

Being able to tell the difference is essential for your English communication skills.

If you are an ESL student, studying for the IELTS, TESOL, and TOEIC exams, mastering this sound is essential.
