  • Hi, I'm Ronnie.

  • Um, do you have problems saying the difference between B and P in English?

  • Don't worry, it's okay.

  • The reason why you have a problem with this is because in your native language, you don't have a B B sound or a piece out.

  • It's okay.

  • I'm here to help you.

  • I'm going to teach you the pronunciation of B and P.

  • First of all, let's look at the written word.

  • So the B or the written letter the be like This is a capital or a big B, and then we have the lower case or the small B.

  • Then we have the P Capital P and lower case P.

  • It is the same mouth movement that we're going to make, so this is why it's confusing.

  • But there's one huge difference, and the difference is voiced.

  • An invoice now a B sound will always be voiced.

  • Voice means that it will vibrate are in your throat.

  • So if you put your hand here and you make the beat down, baby, baby, baby, it's going to always vibrate in your vocal cords.

  • So try the uh oh, that's fun, Barbara, do it at home.

  • Don't do this on the subway, people might think you're crazy.

  • If you're I want to say the word.

  • That's a new voiced, the letter.

  • That's a new voice.

  • It's that's yeah, So any unveil voiced letter, it's not going to vibrate, So check this out.

  • One is, but pot does not vibrate, but the B bar will vibrate to make the sound.

  • You put both of your lips over your teeth and blow out air.

  • It's like you're smoking with a P, but the B The only difference is you make your vocal cords vibrate, voiced Berber and right.

  • The best way to practice with these sounds that are difficult for you.

  • Um, we call minimal pairs, so minimal pairs are two words that have very, very similar pronunciation.

  • But we've got our problem.

  • We've got to be sound and the P sound together, so if you practice them together, hopefully it will improve.

  • You will improve your English, so the first word what we're gonna do is we're going to go through the B sounds Now.

  • When you do this, you can put your hand on your neck or your throat and make sure that there's a vibration.

  • So if we say Berber Bay.

  • Try good.

  • Do it again, babe.

  • Babe, Babe, you should feel the vibration.

  • Next word we have is big.

  • The big die base, but mhm.

  • Then we also have the B and the P at the end of the word.

  • It's okay.

  • Just make sure you vibrate the last word Pub robe.

  • Now this one's in the middle, and then we have a beginning bleed Baba bleed.

  • So I want you to practice the B.

  • Make the make sure that when you say it, your throat is moving or vibrating.

  • Excellent.

  • Okay.

  • When we say the P, we don't have to vibrate or move our vocal cords.

  • It's more like you're blowing out air.

  • So we have play play pig pie.

  • Case put, Pop.

  • Now this, we have double or double pieces pop rope and then plead.

  • This one's a little bit difficult because you've got to get the l as well says plead.

  • So I would like you to now practice the sound.

  • Remember?

  • Do not vibrate your vocal cords when you do this.

  • Great.

  • Okay, So what we're gonna do now is we're gonna put the two words together, and these are are minimal pairs.

  • We're going to say yeah, the words across like this so you can practice the sound and make sure you're saying them differently.

  • So we're going to do this pay bay and play They play the next pair are big and pig Big pig Bye pie face peace But put, I'll let you practice those when we have the sound at the end of the world It's the same idea.

  • You just have to make sure you vibrate.

  • So we have pub and pop robe group at the beginning again, we have bleed and plead You try now, all right, onto something a little bit more difficult.

  • This is the master level if you're ready.

  • Um, if I put these words into a sentence, this is where you're going to have to focus and concentrate on actually vibrating or blowing the smoke.

  • So repeat after me.

  • The big pig played with the blade.

  • The big pig played with the blade.

  • So again, the B sounds are always going to be vibrated.

  • Baba Baba and the P sounds I'm not going to have a vibration.

  • Oh, delicious.

  • Next one, I drink a beer on the pier, I drink a beer on the pier.

  • So we have two words that are minimal pairs in a sentence.

  • This one actually has four words that are minimal pairs.

  • This one's a little bit more difficult.

  • I gave that to you first.

  • Did you do it?

  • Um, Now appears like a doc appears something that you can sit on.
