VoiceThread Minimal Pairs

VoiceThread allows slideshows, pictures and video to be uploaded, narrrated and commented on by other users. It is a wonderful way to publish student's work or provide additional support and lessons in a colloborative and interactive environment. See full VoiceThread post for more information.

I chose to create a minimal pair slideshow focusing on the pronunciation differences between 'short i' as in lip and 'long e' as in leave. The exercise allows users to listen to the pronunciation of various words and record their own pronunciation as many times as they like. Please feel free to check out my minimal pair exercise and add your comments.
