Phonetic Sounds: Mouth Anatomy for English Pronunciation
The “Phonetic Sounds” worksheet is for non-native speakers of English. When speaking in English, it’s helpful to know how native speakers use their mouths. For example, the /TH/ sound has the tip of the tongue go in between the teeth. But the /S/ sound doesn’t.
This activity sheet displays the anatomy of the mouth for some of the most difficult English pronunciations. For ESL students, English pronunciation needs time and practice to master. Now, they can practice in front of a mirror knowing the anatomy of the mouth.
