  9. Who's on First?2006/05/22

    This is a famous "English manzai" routine from the 1930s and 1940s. While the English is a little fast, the words are fairly easy, and the comedians say the same words over and over.

    You can read the script in class in Week 7.

    Can you guess who is the つっこみ and who is the ぼけ?
  10. Back vowels2006/05/18
    This episode covers the most changeable of the English vowels: the "two 'o's" and the "two 'u's."

    I speak Northeastern North American English; I cannot demonstrate the British English accents for the back vowels. Please keep that in mind when you listen!

  12. Casey at the Bat2006/04/24
    We listened and watched the video of this famous poem in Eigo Bunka Jijyou classes during Week 3.

    The video was a little different from this. You can read the poem I gave you in class, and listen at the same time to this classic poem about Mighty Casey and the Mudville Nine.

There are also words with these sounds, and there are sentences that you can try. Finally, the final sentence is one of the most difficult tongue twisters (早口言葉) in the English language. Give it a try!
