/s/ versus /z/
Corner to Corner -

This activity is a free sample from PronPack 2: Pronunciation Puzzles. It can be very tricky to distinguish /s/ from /z/ at the end of a word. Try this maze to see if you can do it. If you find it hard, try two strategies:

1. Say the word aloud and focus on the ending. Is it the sound of a snake /s/, or the sound of a bee /z/?

2. Say the word aloud. Does the vowel sound shortened (clipped)? = /s/. Does the vowel sound full length? = /z/
