  • hey everyone jennifer from tarle speech with your  pronunciation question of the week it's a very  

  • long question today we have the words sigh to  exhale sign an indication or a notification  

  • sin a transgression science the study of physical  or the natural world since because and conscience  

  • your inner voice it's a lot of words all right  let's take a look i tried to break this down  

  • into two columns with the long i and the  short iso let's talk about the long i first  

  • this vowel is going to be tense and you  are going to start with an open mouth  

  • i and move to a smile of course i'm exaggerating  i get comments in some of my videos saying i don't  

  • make my i like that this is for teaching  purposes so again to get your tongue in  

  • the right place you're going to open your mouth  wide in an oval i and then move to that smiling  

  • shape and that's going to get the tongue  tip down low and then high and flat i i i i  

  • next for the short ih sound you're going to relax  your lips my students often confuse this sound  

  • with the long e because they look very similar so  we have e and then relax your lips a little bit ih  

  • so your tongue is going to be high and flat but  not as high as the e it's going to pop down a  

  • little bit because you are relaxing your cheeks  and your lips and your mouth so we have e ih e ih

  • so hopefully that helps you get  the difference between those two  

  • vowels we're going to have the letter s the  s sound to start these words um to do this  

  • you are going to just have the tip of your  tongue either pointing down or behind the  

  • top front teeth it is not touching and the air  is going to continue to move out and then for  

  • the n sound nnn the tip of the tongue is going to  touch the back of the top front teeth and the air  

  • will move out of your nose so those are the basic  sounds that we're going to use something else to  

  • keep in mind is that we have some situations  where we have two syllables instead of one so  

  • let's start with the one syllable words and try to  put those all together so we have sigh sigh sigh

  • sign sign sign sign and then the  short i sin sin sin sin and sinse  

  • sinse sinse since now for that ns some people  will ask me about this um you're going to touch  

  • the teeth for the n nnn and then pull the tongue  down for that s as you do that make sure that  

  • the air is moving out of your mouth for thepractice it slowly in two parts n s n s ns ns

  • it's always a great tip take it slow at first  and then speed it up now we have the word science  

  • spelling really confuses people here so we're  just going to have think of the um sounds s-i  

  • sigh and then we're going to end short  i ins science science science science  

  • and then for conscience you have some options  i've been getting a lot of comments about  

  • is it a short eye is it a short e is it a shortfocus on clarity and just having a short relaxed  

  • vowel sound there to get the word stress correct  for these unstressed syllables so i wrote it as  

  • the short i because we're studying this andthink that lends to the lesson and um it's a  

  • little bit easier to remember if you're learning  but technically it is the short u the schwa sound  

  • you have an option you can either say ns  as the ending or you can do nts both are  

  • acceptable okay so we have conscience conscience  conscience i tend to not say the t but you can say  

  • conscience conscience conscience either is fine  so let's give them all a try sigh sigh sigh  

  • sign sign sign science science science sin sin sin  since since since conscience conscience conscience  

  • and now for a sentence i don't have one oh my  goodness that means you have to write one down  

  • so since i don't have a since i don't  have a sentence some of you may think  

  • that is a sin it will weigh heavy on my conscience  but science tells me since you all are so smart  

  • that you can leave your sign or your signature in  the comments section and leave a sigh of relief  

  • after you write a sentence give it a try  people are going to know this difference
