| | Short "e" versus long "a" sound
Does anyone have any brilliant ways to explain the difference between the short "e" sound and the long "a" sound? I have a student who can't hear the difference, and I've never tried to teach the difference before. Is there a way to help the student hear the difference? For example, she pronounces "pen" and "pain" the same way, and she has trouble hearing the difference when I pronounce them.
