  • In this American English pronunciation video, we're going to go over lip relaxation exercises.

  • 00:00:13,999 --> 00:00:23,106 I don't know about you, but when I was a kid, one of the funny faces that I loved making was the fish face.

  • >> Nice. That's a good one.

  • The lips are two wonderful articulators for many sounds:

  • B, P, F, V, M, W as well as rounding for vowels and diphthongs like OO, [UH], AW, OH, OW.

  • Let's practice some relaxation exercises that will help our lips become as flexible and versatile as possible.

  • Let's start by massaging the lips, which are really mostly skin and mucous membrane.

  • Anyway you like.

  • >> I can't do that because I'm wearing lip stick, but otherwise I would.

  • I like to spend some time on the corners of the lips, where there is some muscle that you can feel.

  • Now blow through your lips, like we're making the sound of an airplane or boat.

  • This can be a good chance to connect with your support and blow through the lips from support.

  • >> I'm going to go higher than you. >> Okay.

  • >> You know that really is hard. If you have an tension in your lips, they won't do that. Singers do that too.

  • You can start by blowing through just with the breath, and then add voice to it.

  • Now, let's try the fish face. Can you do it?

  • It actually feels pretty good.

  • Now here again, let's drop our heads and shake the lips out.

  • >> Do I have to do that again?

  • >> You don't have to if you don't want to. >> Well, it messes up my hair.

  • >> Wow. So, when you're doing these exercises, try not to wear lipstick, and do it before you do your hair.

  • >> And pull your hair back in a bun.

  • Now, let's work on some vowel sounds with the lips.

  • OO-EE, OO-EE

  • So the lips start very forward and rounded, and then pull back in the corners for that EE vowel.

  • OO-EE, OO-EE

  • And now, we're going to get the jaw involved on this next one.

  • We'll go from OO, where again the lips are rounded forward, into AW, AW, where the jaw will drop a bit.

  • OO-AW, OO-AW

  • And now, let's go from OO-EE to OO-AW.


  • Nice. Now, drop your head and shake your lips out again, and you're done!

  • This video is part of a series on Relaxation and placement.

  • If you liked, it, check out the one that came just before on Tongue Relaxation, and the one that comes next, on Throat Relaxation.

  • Now, all of these exercises are new to me as well, and they were taught to me by Tom.

  • He learned these exercises while he was getting his master's degree in acting at Harvard University.

  • >> So Tom, thanks so much for lending your expertise to this series. >> My pleasure.

  • That's it, and thanks so much for using Rachel's English.
