When I want to be sure I am hearing the sounds of a new language, I listen repeatedly to something short, often a single sentence. In this podcast you'll only hear a few sentences but they are repeated many times. Then you will have a chance to listen and repeat. Test yourself and see how well you can imitate my pronunciation, intonation, and rhythm. Tip: close your eyes when you're listening intently. It helps!
The sentences are:
1) I was blindsided by the cost of living in New York.
2) I earned thirty-three thousand three hundred thirty-three dollars and thirty-three cents. ($33,333.33)
3) The train went through the tunnel at top speed.
4) Bonus proverb: Time flies when you're having fun.
