Arsenio’s ESL Podcast | Season 5 Episode 39 | Pronunciation | Consonant Clusters Exercise

Welcome back to another pronunciation podcast.  This is a follow-up to what I talked about in my previous pronunciation podcast, which was the introduction of two, three, and four consonant clusters.  So remember, some languages do not have consonant clusters, making it very difficult for English language learners to pronounce.  Here’s a practice for you!

Cleaned up (sounds like clean-dup)

Find him (sounds like fine-dim)

Thinks about (sounds like think-sabout)

  1. fast — fast enough (sounds like fas-denough)
  2. cold — cold air (sounds like col-dair)
  3. since — since April (sin-sapril)
  4. fact — fact is (sounds like fac-dis)
  5. mind — mind if (min-dif)
  6. slept — slept in (slep-din)
