New series: English vowel sounds.

Topic: This is the first lesson in a series of videos I'll make on English vowel sounds. 15 sounds are presented.

Objective: To make learners aware of how vowel sounds are made in English by calling attention to voicing, lip position, tongue position, and other characteristics of these sounds.

NOTE: I'm very sorry to announce as of January 2012 links to EnglishCafe will no longer be active due to the site closing. I was very lucky to be a part of that online community while it lasted. I'm also sorry for the loss of additional materials for learners.
