The father starts to warm up the car “nnnnnn, n, n, n”. nothing is happening. “nnnnnn, n,n, well “don’t worry kids, I will fix it”. He tried to start the engine again and again. The kids’ faces are going blue and the white sky looks darker in their eyes now. “Father, what is happening?!”, Danny said. “aaaah…Well, maybe it’s not our lucky day, Danny”. “oooooh… come on…that’s unfair”, everybody said. It’s not their lucky day I guess.

Phonics n sound: How to pronounce the /n/ sound ?

/n/ is a nasal sound. The air goes through the nose instead of the mouth. At the same time we use the tongue to stop the air from going out from the mouth by touching the upper part of our jaw by the tip of the mouth. You can hear the sound n clearly in words like ‘nut’, ‘nose’ and ‘neck’. The n sound is voiceless. let’s watch the video together and know more about it.
