Improve your accent and speak clearly with these pronunciation lessons. Learn to say the Short oo /ʊ/ versus Long OO sound /u/.
Practice the difference between two commonly confused sounds:
Long OO sound /u/ as in Luke, pool, and boot;
Short oo /ʊ/ as in book, look, cookie.
These sounds are confusing since they are commonly spelled the same way with two o’s: OO. Spelling leads to even more confusion since these sounds are spelled many different ways: O, OUL, OO, U, OE, WO.
