Listening for L and R Sounds

Listen to the video and choose which word you hear. Write down your answers on a piece of paper. Check your answers at the bottom of the page.

Practice Tip: You can also use this list repeatedly with an instructor. Your instructor writes down a list of answers, then speaks the words to you. You write your answers and see if they match. You can also reverse this to check your pronunciation: you write down a set of answers, then speak, and see if your instructor was able to hear you correctly.
