English Vowels – Pronunciation Test


Check your knowledge of American English vowel sounds by taking this test

Which word is pronounced with a different vowel sound? (doesn’t rhyme with the other words?) 

This test is not as easy as it seems.  If you get 12 or more right, your pronunciation of American vowels is very good.  If not, you can improve by listening carefully to native speakers. Also, you can review Video 1 from my video series “50 Rules You Must Know.”
