Came across a series of BBC short programs on pronunciation. They are aimed at EFL students, so by necessity dumbed down, but still it’s a pleasure to observe how in the beginners course about individual sounds the examples, systematically, contain respective sounds in the initial, middle and terminal position of a word; and how they also give minimal pairs illustrating differences between phonemes.

I am not sure I can reliably hear the difference between her /ŋ/ and /n/, especially in those cases where her /ŋ/ has no /g/-quality to it.
