Tongue Twisters are great coordination lip and tongue muscle exercises for English pronunciation.
Watch this Video for the /Ch/ & /W/ sounds of English. You must pucker your lips into a circle to pronounce them correctly. Your muscles must be strong to clearly articulate the words to be easily understood when you speak English.
/Ch/ is voiceless - quick burst of Air only - it can be at the beginning, middle or end of a word
/W/ lips are in a pucker with a little “whuh” sound at the beginning
/W/ & /Ch/: How much wood, would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
/Ch/: I saw a kitten eating chicken in the kitchen.
Memorize and REPEAT 3-5 times each day. See if your brain and lips cooperate together. It may take some time. Have FUN!
Many of my pronunciation students from India and China have trouble with the /W/ sound. What about you? Leave me a comment.
Did you think after living in America your accent would disappear? Or you could change it yourself? If you still need help, my hybrid course, the ABC's of an American Accent, combines live coaching calls and self-study video lessons to neutralize your foreign accent.
