I had a headache

Phonetics is really important in English in order to pronounce words correctly. In this project, we are going to take a look at how to pronounce correctly the following phonemes: /e/ - /ae/ 

/e/or /ae/.

Check the link minimal pair. to practise the difference between these two sounds.

These phonemes are part of the phonetic chart that is used to describe the sounds of many languages. They have been established by the International Phonetic Association (IPA). For more information about the IPA and their work visit IPA's official website.

Apart from this, you can record yourself practising these words in English. You have to pronounce them correctly and record a podcast with them. Another classmate can review what you have recorded and has to give you his/her opinion in order to improve it. If necessary, you can record it again with the improvement suggestions. 

In order to do this exercise as adequately as possible, you can take a look to the 'Rubric to assess a podcast'

To finish with this activity, share the link of the recording in your learning diary writing and introduction to what you have produced.
