Minimal Pairs Pictures Worksheet: Similar Sounding Word

If you’re teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), there are some unique sounds that can be difficult for cultures to speak. For example, this includes the /r/, /l/ and /th/ sound.

One way to practice these sounds is by using minimal pairs, which are two similar sounding words that differ in only one phonological element. This means that one of your biggest assets is how well you can pronounce the sounds of English.

In the minimal pairs pictures activity, students have to circle the word they hear. As with all minimal pair worksheets in this list, this focuses on identifying similar sounds. Finally, go through each sound by repeating the sounds.
