Accent Error Patterns: Too far back - vowel /ɑ/ (hat sounds sounds like hot), or mouth too closed, Vowel /ɛ/ (man sounds like men)
How to Correct This: Form vowel /æ/ with your jaw open, front of the tongue down, back of the tongue up
Practice Steps: make sure you can hear the differences, use minimal pairs
/æ/ vs. /ɑ/
/æ/ vs. /ɛ/
Learn common words with Vowel /æ/: at, after, man, and, ask, answer, that
Repeated phrase practice: at the ____ (library, bank, park) that ____ (person, thing, time, computer)
