Consonant Sounds

Consonant sounds are made when two organs of speech touch

We have 5 main organs of speech

  1. Teeth
  2. Tongue
  3. Lips
  4. Hard Palate - top of mouth behind teeth
  5. Soft Palate - top of mouth further back towards your throat

The sounds are classified according to which organs of speech are used. remember it is the sound not the letter name so a letter P makes a puh sound.

  1. Labials - two lips touching (p,b,m) 
  2. Labio dental - Lips and teeth (f, v)
  3. Lingua dental - tongue and teeth (th)
  4. Lingua palatal - tongue and hard palate (t,d,l,n)
  5. Lingua guttural - tongue and soft palate (k,c,ng)

What people say about my courses

'Recommend to all speakers of the English Language who wish to improve or correct their pronunciation. The Teacher has a great way of explaining concepts and the reasons why a pronunciation should be correctly pronounced in a certain way. I like the tutor's way of teaching,which is a traditional style,that has substance and clarity. Video and Audio quality is very good.' - Shaun, Aug 2018

'I had a mumbling issue which led me to go to a speech therapist and pay £100 per session, after losing £200 and still not having a solution, I came across this course and I had quickly found the solution to my problem. Over and above that, I got a lot more out of this course, more than anything a real enlightenment as to how I speak, how that comes across and how I can improve my speech to get better outcomes out of conversations and speeches. Thank you Serena.' Reuben, Aug 2018
