American English Vocabulary with Pronunciation (and French Translations)

Learn how to speak American English

I created this vocabulary pack for a private English student here in France. All of the recordings were done by me and I have a Midwestern accent (that may have been modified slightly by my years in France.) You can also download these vocabulary lists (in PDF or DOC format) and all of the mp3s from the free ESL Lesson Plans page, if you'd like to use them offline. If you are learning English, check out Yabla and FluentU for language learning through videos and subtitles. If you want to learn even more American English, I suggest the American English courses as Udemy or the The American Accent Course.
