  • Hello everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your question of the week. Our question

  • today is about three words check which is to examine or verify

  • chick which is a young bird or slang for a young woman and

  • cheek the side of the face

  • So let's take a look at our words. Okay all of these words start and end with the same

  • sound so let's get that out of the way. For the ch sound start by touching the tip

  • of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth and then pull it back for that ch ch

  • ch ch ch ch Then for the k sound the tip of your tongue

  • is way low in your mouth the back of your tongue is pulled high up sometimes it even

  • touches the roof of your mouth and air is just going to puff out K K.

  • So again we have CH and K. Now for the vowels I put the words in this

  • order on purpose we are going to start with a relatively closed mouth for the e your tongue

  • is going to be nice and high and flat for that sound e e your lips are tense and smiling.

  • You are going to relax your lips slightly and your tongue is going to pop down just

  • behind the top front teeth. So we have eeeee ih

  • and then you're going to open your mouth slightly and then you're going to see the tip of your

  • tongue between your top and your bottom teeth eh

  • ee ih

  • eh ee

  • ih eh

  • And your tongue is going to remain relatively flat for all of these sounds but again the

  • difference here is super high for the e with the tense mouth

  • relax the mouth ih ih open the mouth slightly eh

  • Let's give those words a try cheek cheek cheek

  • chick chick chick check check check

  • cheek chick check cheek chick check

  • And let's try it the opposite way check chick cheek

  • check chick cheek One more time

  • cheek cheek cheek chick chick chick

  • check check check cheek chick check

  • And now for a sentence Wipe your cheek before you ask for the check.

  • You have some of the chocolate chick from dessert on your face.

  • So give it a try i know people are going to notice the difference if you found this helpful

  • we would love it if you would share us with your friends and leave us a comment if you're
