  • Hey everyone. This is Jennifer from tarle Speech with your pronunciation question.

  • Today's question is a spelling question again and it is how do we pronounce the letters "-tch" when we see them in a word.

  • So when we see these three letters," -tch", we are just going to pronounce a "ch" sound, so to say that "C H" sound, the "ch" sound.

  • What you're going to do is your lips are going to be rounded, you're going to touch the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth to start that sound and then your tongue is going to pull towards the back of your mouth.

  • Now for some practice. I'm going to try something a little bit new.

  • Some of you have been asking for more practice.

  • So what I'm going to do is I'm going to say a word.

  • I'm going to pause and then you can repeat it.

  • Okay, everybody ready.

  • Here we go, dispatch, dispatch, stopwatch, stopwatch, patch, patch, mismatch, mismatch, dispatch, dispatch, wristwatch, wristwatch,

  • stretch, stretch, scratch, scratch, rematch, rematch, latch, latch, fetch, fetch, etch, etch, catch catch, match, match, which which, batch, batch, notch, notch, glitch, glitch, switch, switch.

  • So again, when you see the three letters "-tch".

  • You can just think about saying one sound "ch" and to do that, your lips are rounded, the tongue touches the teeth to start and then pulls back, give it a try.

  • People are going to notice the difference.

  • Um, we'd love a like and a share and also I'd love to know what you think about this new format.

  • You can leave your comments below.

  • Um and if you need some more help, you can check out our products on Google Play, iTunes and our classes at Tarle Speech.

  • Thanks so much everyone. Have a great week.
