Look at the mouth picture for the /ch/ sound. It is very important to understand the tongue position and the shape of lips before producing English sounds. The sound is unvoiced, so you do not need your voice to say it. Just air.
How to make the sound CH
- Bite your teeth together.
- Shape your lips to match the picture above.
- Touch the top of the mouth with your tongue.
- Breathe out (Air is blown through quickly).
Look, listen and repeat the sound ‘Ch’ and words with it:
