  • Hello.

  • I'm John Russell.

  • Today I would like to introduce you to a traveling sound.

  • Oh, to make the O sound.

  • Your lips should be very rounded and tense.

  • Oh, Oh, your tongue should be toward the middle and back of your mouth.

  • It should be a little tense to an important point.

  • Your tongue should travel or move a little bit too.

  • Oh is not a pure vowel.

  • Rather, it is a vowel sound, followed by a semi vowel, sometimes called an off glide.

  • The term off glide suggests that your tongue has to travel a little bit.

  • Many languages of the world do not have tense fouls that air followed by semi vowels.

  • This means that many English learners do not pronounce the semi vowel in Oh.

  • The result is that the O sound can sound slightly unusual to native speakers.

  • If you don't say it correctly, let's explore some common words that have the O sound.

  • Many of them have something to do with Travel Boat Road or consider this sentence.

  • We drove slowly on the open road.

  • I used the O sound four times in that sentence.

  • My tongue is tired now.

  • Well, that was quite a journey We went on with the O sound.

  • Which reminds me Where do you go after you travel another place with the O sound home.

  • Keep up the good work.

Hello.
