Description: M/B minimal pairs are the focus of this adult ESL pronunciation deck. If your students need to work on their auditory discrimination of the sounds of /m/ and /b/, you'll want this M B minimal pairs deck for them! Each card in this deck focuses on a single m/b minimal pair, complete with a clear photo and word representation for each. With the audio icons provided, students will listen and then drag and drop them to the corresponding photos/words. With 65 cards to practice with, they'll have ample opportunity to perfect their auditory discrimination skills and gain confidence in their pronunciation abilities. The audio from the gold icon will play automatically. Students can immediately drag and drop it in the box for the correct word/image or click the silver icon to listen to the other word before moving any icons. Students must place both the gold and the silver icons in the box for the matching word/image. Students can listen to the words as many times as they want by clicking on the icons. This deck was created with adult students in mind and will not appeal to young learners. This boom deck uses the same photos and minimal pairs as the digital presentation part of my M B Minimal Pairs for Adult ESL Pronunciation resource in my TpT store. *******NOTE****** This was made for adults. One of the minimal pairs is rum/rub. If you are using this with non-adult students, you may wish to hide that card. It is the last card, one of the green ones.
