Hey,

I am teaching American English Accent to some employees of an American call center overseas. I find that they have a very difficult time grasping the short i sound and some can't even detect the difference between the short i and the long E sounds when they are saying the words. Please help!! Do you have any ideas as to exercises we might do to help them?

Thanks,
Elizabeth

If you have access to a cassette recorder, you could borrow a couple of ideas from a British English EFL book called Headway Pronunciation (Elementary Level) from OUP ISBN 9 780194 339407.
