‘live’ vs. ‘life’

How to say ‘live‘ and ‘life’ – recommended video.
Listen and practise.


Also, remember the difference between:

the ‘short i’ – /i/ – such as “live in”, “Is it in the middle of the city?”, etc.


the ‘long i’ – /i:/ – for example, She’s leaving soon.”, He needs to leave the meeting at three (o’clock).”, etc.

Mixed sounds:

“Is it time to eat?”

He’s wearing his suit today.”

If you would like to practise your pronunciation and/or general English with an experienced, qualified and native  English teacher, ‘MiProfe’ may be able to help.  Please click here for further information or to book special summer courses, available from late July.
