/p/ Vs /b/ English Consonants VIDEO
Hi, it’s Esther here from Speak More Clearly.
This time we are going to be learning how to pronounce the difference between the English consonants / p/ and /b/ .
The /p/ sound is an unvoiced sound. You don’t switch on your voice when you say it. You say it as if you are whispering. /p/. /p/ It is important to notice that your lips are held very lightly together and then released.
The /b/ sound is made exactly the same way in your mouth, but it is a voiced sound.
I will say pairs of words first with the two English consonants, and then I will say the words in sentences. I will leave a space after I speak for you to copy. I will repeat each pair of English words and each sentence twice.
The /b/ word will be first, and then the /p/ word will be second.
