  • hey everyone jennifer from turtle speech with your  pronunciation question we have three words today  

  • place a location plays performances or kids having  fun and placebo a medicine with no physical but  

  • with psychological benefits all right let's takelook at our words we have place plays and placebo  

  • for place in place these words are almost  exactly the same they start with the same  

  • three sounds p l and the long a play play play  so to say play i'm actually going to add that in  

  • we are going to start with our lips two together  and think about having your tongue in the correct  

  • spot for the l which is behind the top front  teeth that's actually touching the back of the  

  • top front teeth and then as you open your mouth  your tongue will be in the right spot for the l  

  • pull pull next we're going to move to the long  a and to do this open your mouth and then move  

  • to a smile for that long a my tip to most of my  students is make your vowels at the end of words  

  • a little bit longer and typically  that helps fix any of the mistakes  

  • for place we're going to add an s sound to do  this tip of the tongue is either pointed down  

  • or behind the top front teeth it is not touching  air is going to move out of your mouth place  

  • place place and for plays all you're going to do  is turn on your voice for that z sound so it's  

  • exactly the same as the s tongue is in the  same spot either pointed down or behind the  

  • top front teeth not touching the difference  is your voice box is on and moving plays plays  

  • plays so we have play place and plays you are  probably hearing a little bit of a longer a  

  • in the word plays because we have that  voiced z vowels are voiced voiced sounds  

  • are voiced that makes our voice stay on and  makes that vowel sound a little bit longer  

  • last for placebo this confuses people because  it's pronounced differently we are going to  

  • have the schwa here at the beginning pla which  is a nice short relaxed mouth nice short vowel  

  • then we're going to move to the word c to  do this s sound tip of the tongue down or  

  • behind the back of the top front teeth air is  moving out no voice no touching in the teeth  

  • and then smile for that long e c and then we're  going to end with bow and to do this you're going  

  • to put your lips together open them up and then  move to a pucker for that long o bow bow bow pla

  • placebo placebo placebo so we have play  place plays placebo play place plays placebo  

  • and now for a sentence the children play outside  in the place where the actors do a lot of plays i  

  • couldn't add placebo in there but you can leave me  a sentence for placebo if you would like so give
