Youtube videos are a great way to demonstrate some of these concepts – you can see exactly what I’m suggesting, hear pronunciation examples, etc. I intend to expand these videos substantially as we approach the book’s release in August. Expect to see a giant pile of Anki tutorials, and if the Kickstarter goes as planned, a really comprehensive set of pronunciation videos. Until then, there’s plenty to see here already. Enjoy!
These tutorials cover the International Phonetic Alphabet and the nitty-gritty on what every sound in every language consists of. The goal is for you to understand your native pronunciation, and what makes your target language different
Currently available pronunciation tutorials:
- Consonants 1: Voicing and Place
- Consonants 2: Manner and the English Consonants
- Vowels: Height, Rounding and Backness
French Pronunciation (a.k.a., how to learn a lot of new vowels)
These tutorials discuss how best to use Anki to speed up your language studies. They cover topics like installation, configuration and what you actually do once it’s all set up
