Working On Your Vowels Together

Here is an activity that your family can do together to work on accuracy in pronunciation. Make sure you run through the actual pronunciation either before or after the game. The aim is to learn while you have fun.


  • You will need to do this in pairs. There are 2 lists: A list of statements and a list of responses.
  • One person will read the statements, and the other will read out the appropriate responses based on what they just heard.
  • The pair that gets the most responses correct will win.


Let the game begin.
