  • Hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle  speech with your two for Tuesday.

  • Two for Tuesday are two words that are pronounced  the same but they have different definitions  

  • and different spellings. These  words are called homophones.

  • Our words today are wine the drink  made from fermented grapes; and whine  

  • a long high-pitched cry or a complaining tone.

  • So let's not whine about  this lesson let's hop to it!

  • So our words today are wine and whine; to say  these words correctly we're going to think about  

  • three sounds. We're going to  start with the w sound wwww.  

  • To do that pucker your lips your tongue  is just flat in the middle of your mouth.

  • Next, we're going to move to the i and to  make that vowel sound I suggest to make the  

  • long i that you open your mouth  wide and then you move to a smile.  

  • This will help you get your tongue low in your  mouth and then move it to high and flat i i.

  • Last end with the n sound by touching the tip of  your tongue to the back of your top front teeth.  

  • The air is going to move out of your nose.

  • Let's put it all together. wine whine wine whine wine whine

  • And now for a sentence:

  • I promise you I won't whine  if you are out of wine.

  • Give it a try I know people are  going to notice the difference.
