    A minimal pairs quiz

    I am doing a minimal pairs quiz and I need your help.
    Could you please do me a favor and listen to the recording I've made and tell me which word in every pair (from the list below) I pronounced?

    I seem to have problem distinguishing the long and short i vowels and to make sure I pronounce them correctly, I need your feedback.
