  • And, uh, for captives are often a source of confusion for English learners.

  • Some English learners confuse them with stops.

  • Continent sounds that are made by creating a stop in the air flow.

  • To be clear, ferga Tibbs mean there is a partial obstruction in the airstream.

  • Stops mean there is a full obstruction in the airstream.

  • Some English learners substitute frigate of sounds with stop sounds.

  • For example, they might replace the sound with the sound.

  • The result is that a word such as think becomes something like pink is a Fricka tive sound is a stop sound.

  • Sometimes English learners substitute stop sounds with fricka tive sounds.

  • For example, they replace the A stop sound with ah Fricka tive sound.

  • How might you deal with this issue?

  • Try making note of the continent sounds that you have difficulty with.

  • Then find out how you should use your tongue and Airstream when making the sounds.

  • We have many videos on our website that explore individual sounds, or you can ask a teacher or a friend to help keep up the good work.
