Phonetics ou-au



In session 23 we are practising the "ou" and the "au" sound.

Please listen to the these examples:

know
grow
low

go
show
flow
throw

borrow
follow
narrow

below
tomorrow
sorrow

gold
fold
told
hold

I know we'll go to the show.
He's been told that tomorrow he will be sorry.

Now listen to these words:

now
how
our
sour
flower
shower
out
about
shout
cloud
crowd
loud
proud

Now, how about taking a shower before we get sour?
In our special hour we are very proud so we speak out loud.

In now let's compare both sounds:

no -- now
port -- proud
short -- shout
lord -- loud
ought -- out

Now, you ought to be proud to know all these sounds.
