Learning English Pronuciation Of Ch Sh Sound

  1. 1. Learning Beyond the Classroom Pronunciation of final / s /1Anna Skype English School http://skype-englishschool.com
  2. 2. Learning Objectives  Demonstrate accurate production of the pronunciation sounds of digraphs /sh/ and /ch/. http://skype-englishschool.com
  3. 3. Explanation  The /sh/ and /ch/ sounds are made by placing the tongue on the gum behind the top front teeth, using the middle part of the tongue. http://skype-englishschool.com
  4. 4. Articulation  /sh/ sound  This sound is easy to produce if you round your lips and keep your air stream smooth and steady (as in shhh!).  There are many spellings for the sound of /sh/. The following spellings may be found at the beginning, middle, or end of a word. The sound of /sh/ may be spelled as: “sh”, “ti”, “ci”, “ss”, “ch.”  Less frequent spellings include: “s”, “ce”, and “xi” http://skype-englishschool.com
  5. 5. How do you make the /sh/sound?  Placement- upper and lower teeth are touching. Raise the front part of the tongue toward the hard palate, but do not touch it. Press the sides of your tongue against the side of your upper back teeth.  Manner- produce the sound by forcing air out over the tongue through the teeth. Air is forced out in a long stream, slowly. Lips are rounded and slightly protruded (pushed out).  Voice- your vocal chords do not vibrate; it is a voiceless sound.  Examples- shake, shy, option, sociable, issue, profession, anxious, wish http://skype-englishschool.com
  6. 6. How do make the /ch/ sound?  /ch/ sound  The sound of /ch/ is easily confused with /sh/ for some language groups.  The spellings for /ch/ include: “ch”, “tu”, and “tch”, while less frequent spellings include “t” and “ti.” http://skype-englishschool.com
  7. 7. How do you make the /ch/ sound?  Placement- Tongue is pressed firmly against the gum ridge behind the upper front teeth. This sound is a combination of /t/ (a stop-plosive) as in “to” and /sh/ (a fricative) as in “she.” As you press firmly against upper gum ridge behind the front teeth, the airflow is stopped (as for /t/) and then is released (as for /sh/).  Manner- lower the tongue quickly, keeping the side of your tongue pressed against the upper back teeth and forcing the explosion of air out over the tongue. Air is forced out hard and quickly. Lips are rounded as with /sh/.  Hint: Place your hand in front of lips to feel a puff of air when produced correctly.  Voice- /ch/ is voiceless (no vibration).  Examples- choose, check, chat, lunch, match, mature, nature, catch http://skype-englishschool.com
