Eng­lish Accent Train­ing- How To Pro­nounce Words With ‘ng’ at the end. AUDIO Les­son

Eng­lish accent train­ing can be con­fus­ing some­times! We all know that when we write the con­so­nant ‘ng’ /ŋ/, we see a ‘g’ let­ter  there, but when we say it, it’s not pro­nounced. Also, it doesn’t become a /k/ sound either.

So when you’re prac­tis­ing your Eng­lish accent train­ing, think of it this way:-

When you see ‘sh’ writ­ten, you don’t say the /s/ and /h/ as two dif­fer­ent sounds, they ‘com­bine’ to say a total­ly dif­fer­ent sound – sh.  The /n/ and /g/ ‘com­bine’ to say a dif­fer­ent sound, and the /g/ isn’t pro­nounced sep­a­rate­ly. It isn’t a con­so­nant clus­ter where both sounds are said like in the ‘ts’cluster, but becomes it’s own sound. 

Eng­lish Accent Train­ing- How to make the ‘ng’ con­so­nant

To make the ‘ng’ con­so­nant you put the tip of your tongue down behind your bot­tom front teeth where your teeth meet your gum. Then, you raise the back of your tongue up toward the roof of your mouth (your tongue doesn’t touch the roof), like when you say the /k/ sound. Hold your tongue up in that posi­tion. Switch on your voice to make sound, and res­onate or send the sound out through  your nose.
