t & d sound
This is a pronunciation video for the "t" and "d" sounds at the beginning of words. You might also benefit from listening to the vowel sounds that follow the initial consonant sounds. If you want me to make more videos like this one, leave a message below and I'll try to help you out.
Final t / d
This video demonstrates the "t" and "d" sounds at the end of a word. Notice how the vowel sound is also affected. If a word ends with a "t" sound, the duration (length) of the vowel sound is short. If a word ends with a "d" sound, the duration of the vowel sound is longer.
