Teaching phonemes - Minimal pairs

Unread postby DIA » 07 May 2009, 18:24

Hi,
I need help regarding phonemes. Could you give me some examples of the minimal pairs you'd use to teach the following for initial, medial or final location:
/ i / and / E /
/ p / and / f /
/ r / and / l /
/ r / and / h /
/ v / and / b /

I really appreciate any suggestion.
