  • Hello everyone it's Jennifer from Tarle speech  with your two for Tuesday. Actually today we  

  • have a three for Tuesday! This is a homophone  lesson - the three words have different spellings  

  • different meanings but they are pronounced  exactly the same way. Our words today are vain  

  • which means pointless or a conceited  person, vane a blade pushed by the wind,  

  • and vein tubes that circulate blood. These  words again are pronounced exactly the same way!

  • To say these words correctly we're going to start  with that v sound. To do this your lips are open,  

  • you are gently biting the inside or the outside  of your bottom lip, just make sure that the air  

  • keeps moving out of your mouth, if you close  your mouth, it will sound like a b and we do  

  • not want that. Another tip is make sure that your  lips are pulled back almost like you're smiling  

  • this is because if you make another mistake  that I hear a lot of my clients do is that  

  • you pucker your lips ww and then you say a w  so we wanna vvvv not a b not a w we want v v v.

  • Next move to that long a to do this you're going  to open your mouth wide tip of the tongue is down  

  • back of the tongue is pulled up. As you close your  mouth to a smile your mouth is going to move to  

  • high and flat and then end by touching the tip of  your tongue to the back of your top front teeth 

  • for that n air moves out of your  nose let's put it all together

  • vain vein vane vain vein vane

  • And now for a sentence The vain man's  

  • blood boiled in his veins when he noticed his  friend was interested in the weather vane.

  • Give it a try i know people are going to notice  the difference if you found this helpful we'd
