  • Hello, I'm John Russell.

  • Today.

  • Let's explore one of the complex foul sounds of American English.

  • How?

  • How is what some language experts call a dip thong A vowel sound followed by a semi vowel.

  • To make the how sound your lips should start in an open position that is not rounded.

  • Your lips should be relaxed like this.

  • Oh, as you move toward the semi vowel sound, your lips begin to close and become tense.

  • Uh, your tongue needs to move a lot when you make the how sound.

  • It should begin in a low central position in your mouth and then move to a high back position.

  • How is a complex sound?

  • But it has some spelling patterns that are easy to remember.

  • One is the letters O u as in out around loud.

  • A second common pattern is the letters O W as in vowel.

  • Now down.

  • Let's end this video with a quiz.

  • Can you repeat this sentence and can you tell me how many times you hear the howl sound?

  • Now you need to practice making the vowel sound out loud.

  • Now you need to practice making the vowel sound out loud.

  • That's all for today.

Hello, I'm John Russell.
