  • tongue to the back of your top front teeth oh it is okay if your tongue

  • touches between your teeth L that's fine just touch the Teeth the V sound this

  • last sound here and the f sound what you're going to do is you are gently

  • going to bite the inside or the outside of your bottom lip and the air is going

  • to keep moving out of your mouth the difference is for the V sound your voice

  • box is on vibrating and moving be sure you do not put your lips together

  • because then you'll sound like a BA and be sure to not round your lips into a

  • pucker whoo because it'll sound like a W okay so lips are slightly pulled back

  • gently biting inside or outside of the bottom lip air moves out voice boxes on

  • alright so now for the vowels let's start with this short ih sound your mouth

  • is going to be somewhat relaxed and your tongue is going to be just below your

  • top front teeth ih ih ih nice and short let's put that all together live live
