English Pronunciation: B and P Sounds

Practice speaking with distinct B and P sounds using the sentences below.

In the first group of sentences, there are two similar words, and the only difference is the B or P. This helps you to say each sound differently even when words like this are close together.

In the second group, there are two sentences in which a similar word with either B or P can be used. You may want to use these sentences to practice with a friend or instructor. You choose a sentence randomly and find out if your listener heard a B or a P. Return to B and P sounds.
