  • Everyone is jennifer from Charles speech with your question of the week.

  • Today is a little more of an advanced lesson but I know you can all do it.

  • So hang in there and I will go slowly.

  • We have four words and I do want to know this is particularly difficult for my students from Asia um from many different language backgrounds there and we have four words lesion, a wound from an injury or disease legion, a vast multitude of people or things region in an area of a country or the world and vision, a state of being able to see here are the words, Let's take a look.

  • We have a lesion region, region and vision.

  • So again lesion legion region and vision.

  • The confusing part.

  • I think for a lot of people is this jump sound versus the jump sound.

  • So let's start right there for this sound.

  • Your lips are going to be a rounded, The tip of your tongue is behind your top, front teeth, it is not touching your teeth and that air is going to keep moving out of the mouth, Your voice box is on for the J sound.

  • These sounds look very similar with what the lips do, Your lips will be rounded.

  • But for this sound, what's going to happen is you're going to touch the teeth with the tip of your tongue and then pull it back.

  • Chip.

  • Yeah.

  • Jack.

  • So again we have yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • Jake Jeff.

  • So that's the difference there.

  • The vowel is going to be that short off sound.

  • Some of my students here a short.

  • I am it sound or an S sound that's all time.

  • Just make sure that sound is nice and short and relaxed.

  • And then you're going to end with the end.

  • Mm Touch the tip of the tongue to the back of the top, Front teeth and air moves out of your nose.

  • So let's try these endings.

  • Jean jean jean john john john So again, teeth tongue does not touch the ti jeanne start by touching the teeth judge All right now let's go to the beginning of the words.

  • This causes trouble to, alright, for most of these words, we're going to use the law E.

  • Sound you smile.

  • Your tongue is nice and high and flat in your mouth.

  • E for the short I open him out a tiny bit more.

  • E.

  • Yeah, He, because I'm opening my mouth by relaxing my cheeks and my lips.

  • Uh yeah.

  • Mm Yeah, pretending that my hand is my tongue as you can see, my tongue will be high and flat for the E.

  • Mm.

  • Yeah, mm hmm.

  • If my time was just going to pop down slightly, it's going to be behind my top front teeth.

  • But kind of at the bottom of the top teeth there.

  • All right.

  • For the L you are going to start that by touching the tip of your tongue to the back of your top front teeth and you're going to keep it there.

  • Uh lee the leave.

  • So that's for both of those.

  • Now for the three, you can do one of two things your tongue can either be pointing down with the back pulled up or it could be flipped back.

  • It's whatever works fast for you.

  • So we have three, three breathe and then down here for the vet, The V.

  • Sound.

  • What you're going to do is your mouth is going to be open.

  • Do not close your lips if you close your lips but going to sound like a beat so your lips are slightly open.

  • I say you're going to be biting the inside or the outside of your bottom lip.

  • It's just like you're touching it.

  • Okay?

  • Air is going to keep moving out.

  • Voice box is on.

  • Mm, mm hmm.

  • Zach that that put these words all together.

  • Okay, you can do it.

  • Lee, jean league jim three jim there.

  • All the way through lesion legion region vision.

  • And now for some sentences, the president had a vision for how to improve the region and send us number two, a legion of ants invaded the lesion on the animal carcass.
