Summary: Water Pronunciation

When I started listening to new English language learners pronounce ‘water’ I was just amazed at the different ways people invent to say what is a simple word. It was only later did I hear how Americans say exactly the same word differently to the British. It’s of no surprise that English language learners struggle with the pronunciation of “water”.

In this English listening practice podcast I wanted first to say the word water a lot! So you can hear it over and over and get used to the way it’s spoken by a native English speaker. Without boring you to death! So I settled on using some water idioms to keep you interested and also help you learn some popular English phrases.
