This is a very special lesson in my series "Pronunciation of English Vowel Sounds". This video presents three speech samples: American English, British English, and New Zealand English. Listen and compare how three native speakers of three different dialects pronounce the same set of words.
The UK contribution is given by Phil and MrTESOL. For more of MrTESOL's materials for students, please visit http://www.englishcafe.com/mrtesol
The NZ contribution is given by Sarah Lilburn of The Daily English Show.

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.
