American English Vocabulary with Pronunciation (and French Translations)

Learn how to speak American English

I created this American English vocabulary pack with pronunciation/recordings for a private English student in France, but even if your native language is not French, you may still find the resources useful. All of the recordings were done by me (Dr. Jennifer Wagner) in 2007-2008 and I have a Midwestern accent that may have been modified slightly by my years in France.

For English videos with subtitles, try Yabla and FluentU. If you want to learn even more American English, please check out my American English Pronunciation course or the other American English courses at Udemy.
