Hello and welcome to Unit number 7. Now in this unit we’re going to practice four different sounds. Now these sounds are quite close actually. That’s why we’re practicing them together because they’re very similar sounds and you need to learn how to say them differently. Some people from some languages have difficulty with these sounds. Maybe you will, maybe you won’t, we’ll see. The main thing is, when you practice these sounds, exaggerate the differences, right? So in all our training in this course, I want you to exaggerate. Do it more strongly than you think you need to. All right, so, make these sounds very, very strong.
Just like in the last unit, we made the TH sound very, very, very, very strong. Well that’s the way you get better, that’s the way you practice and train. When you speak in a normal conversation, of course it probably won’t be quite so strong but as you’re training (claps), make these sounds very very very clearly and strongly, exaggerate. And again, let me remind you, if these sounds are very easy for you, still follow the five day Effortless English process. Just focus on rhythm, focus on the pitch, focus on the music.
Okay, let’s start with P, the P sound. Puh, puh, puh, as you can hear the P sound is a soft sound, Puh, puh, puh. Now it’s also a very relaxed sound.
When you make the P sound, your throat should be quite relaxed, you don’t want to (struggle noise), right, everything is pretty relaxed when you make the P, so relax your throat, get your face nice and relaxed.
Then all you’re going to do, is you’re going to close your lips and you’re going to put air into your mouth but keep it closed, so like this. If we do it really big it’d be like this. I’m exaggerating, okay, but let’s practice it really big.
And then all you need to do to make that strong P sound, is you have to pressure, push the air, so there’s some pressure in your mouth, right, there’s air pressure. Then you just open your mouth and it comes out very quickly, so it’s like this,
Puh, puh. That’s a very strong P sound. If you had a candle, right, if you had a little candle in front of you, you should blow out the candle. You should blow it out, the flame is gone, the fire is gone when you make the P sound.
Puh, puh, puh, puh, puh, puh.
And you can exaggerate you can even put your lips together and really, like that and then air pressure, and then release, Puh it’s a popping sound. Pop. Let’s practice some words with P. Make it very strong.
Pain, pain, pain, pain.
Past, past, past.
Patient, patient, patient.
Remember, everything else is relaxed, just, it’s just here, where you’re feeling a lot of pressure behind your lips, then you release it. When you release, everything relaxes.
Persistent, persistent, persistent.
Peak, peak, peak.
Play, play, play.
Power, power, power.
Now let’s do it at the end of the words. Now this is where a lot of people have problems. Cause a lot of people, when they say a P sound at the end, it’s too soft. So if the P is at the end of the word, you have to make it extra strong, right, this is a quiet sound. So if it’s too soft, nobody will hear it and it’ll sound weird.
For example, the word, hop. Hop, hop. It means to jump. Hop, hop.
Well if you say it too soft, it sounds like this, Ho, ho, it sounds weird because it’s not correct. You have to make the final P sound, make it very strong.
Hop, hop, hop. We’re exaggerating.
Up, up, up, up.
Top, top, top.
Step, step, step.
All right that is the P sound.
Now let’s learn B, like boy, B. Now the B and the P are very, very, very, very, very close, they’re basically the same sound, there’s just one difference.
With the B, you need to vibrate, remember vibration? I told you it was important. Okay, so it’s the same action, you close your lips, you create pressure, the air pressure behind your lips. You suddenly explode the sound, Buh just like a P.
So how do we make it sound like a B, like boy? You’ve got to vibrate, you can vibrate your lips even but especially your throat. Your throat and your lips will vibrate, B, B, buh, buh, buh, buh.
Let’s hear the difference.
First is the P, Puh, puh, puh, very soft.
Now the B, with some vibration, Buh, buh, buh.
You can even put your fingers here if you need to, do a P.
Puh, puh, puh, puh.
No vibration, you should feel nothing here in your throat. No shaking, no vibrating in your throat for the P.
Now the B, you should feel it.
Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh.
Vibration, that’s what makes the difference. Let’s practice some words.
Baby, baby, baby.
Two B sounds. you should feel the vibration in your throat, you can even vibrate your lips a little.
Back, back, back.
Bad, bad, buh, buh, bad, bad (laughs).
Now at the end of a word.
Lab, lab, lab, lab.
Beginning of a word.
Beach, beach. Let’s go to the beach and swim.
Beach, buh, buh, beach.
Absorb, two B’s.
Absorb, absorb, absorb, absorb, absorb.
Vocab, vocab, vocab, vocab. (claps)
Very good, you got it, that’s the B sound. That’s our first little pair, our first little group.
Now let’s go to our next group, F and V, F and V. These are also very close and again vibration will make the difference. The F sound, you’re going to bite your lower lip, just the lower one, the bottom one, like this.
See that, kind of biting it. You’re throat with F is very relaxed, totally relaxed, just like the P sound, right, very relaxed throat, you’re biting your lower lip. Then you’re just going to blow air and release. So it’s like this.
Fah, fah, fah, fah.
It’s actually similar to the P, the P, your lips are together, but in the F, you’re biting the lower lip, so a little air comes out.
Fah, fah, fah. Again it’s a soft sound.
Let’s practice some words.
Fight, fight, fight.
Fun, fun, fun.
Half, not whole, not one, but half. It’s at the end of the word.
Half, half, half, half.
Fast, fast, fast, fast.
Very good, now the V sound, V. Again, it’s the same action as F, but we’re going to vibrate. You’re going to vibrate your throat, you’re going to vibrate your lip, actually vibrate your lip, this part, when you make the V sound. So it’s vibration, so again, bite the lower lip. Again, you blow air and release.
But now we have to vibrate the throat and the lip. V-V-V-V-V if you put your finger here, you should feel it shaking. V-V-V-V-V-V-V-V-V.
Also put your finger on your throat, it’s shaking. V-V-V-V-V. Right around here.
V-V-V-V, very, very.
Vuh, vuh, vuh, vuh,
V-V-V, sounds like a little bee.
Vuh, vuh, vuh,
The vibration is the important part.
Let’s practice some words.
Very, very, very.
Vocal, vocal. Vocal means voice.
Vocal. Voice, voice, voice.
Make it very strong. Now at the end of a word.
Believe, believe, believe,
I’m exaggerating a lot so you can hear it and practice it.
Believe, get that vibration. Believe, believe.
Very important to get the vibration.
Verify, verify, verify.
Let’s practice another one at the end, a very common one, of, of, of.
It’s spelled with an F, but it’s actually a V sound. It needs to vibrate, it’s not Uff, it’s OV, vibration, V sound.
Of, of, of, O-F, of.
And those are our four sounds for this unit. And let me just mention because of that word, Of O-F, I’m going to tell you something that you probably know already but it’s important as a conclusion. Never trust English spelling, never.
English spelling will always lie to you. Don’t trust it, you cannot look at a word and know how to pronounce it. Never, never, never, you cannot, don’t trust it. You have to learn pronunciation through listening. That’s why in our five day process, the first day is always listening, listening, listening, you have to hear the sounds. Because English spelling is crazy.
Even Americans, Canadians, and British people, we have trouble spelling words. If we hear a new word, we’re not always sure how to spell it. Or if we see a new word, we’ve never heard it before, we’re not always sure how to say it. Because the spelling rules are so crazy and there’s always exceptions and we have all these words from different languages. So never trust your eyes when learning pronunciation. Do not learn pronunciation with your eyes, okay, or you will make a lot of mistakes.
You always must listen so that word we just learn, O-F, that’s a good example. If you look at it, you think it should be pronounced “OF” it should be an F sound but it’s not, it’s a V sound, right? You only know that if you listen and hear it. So listen carefully, don’t trust the text, don’t trust your eyes, trust your ears.
Time to get to work, time to go to day 1. Get over there, start listening very deeply listen to these sounds carefully and then you’ll practice them with the five day process.
Time for the training audio, see you there!
