  • Hello. My name is Ronnie. It's nice to see you. That was very formal, very strange. What's

  • happened to Ronnie? Today, we're going to do some pronunciation. I did it. I said the

  • word correctly. I'm going to teach you how to say the difference between "ch" -- so CH

  • -- and "sh", SH.

  • I'm not 100 percent on how many people really have problems with this, but I do know that

  • if you speak Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, and any other languages, you probably

  • have trouble pronouncing these two words because -- or these two sounds -- because you don't

  • have them in your language. So don't worry. I'm here to help you. But please practice.

  • The only way that you're ever going to get this -- aces -- or get it well is by practicing.

  • You've got to tell your mouth what to do. Okay? We're going to do some exercises to

  • help you.

  • The first sound is "ch", "ch". Think of a train, "Choo-choo!" So when you make the "ch"

  • sound, you're going to bite the back of your teeth down, "ch". And your lips are going

  • to be like so. Okay? It's like you want to show people your teeth, but at the back. The

  • air is going to be pressed between the gap of your top and your bottom teeth. So it's

  • "ch, ch, ch, ch, ch... Choo-choo!" So you can think of it like making a train noise.

  • This word is "chair". Your turn. "Chair. Ch, ch, ch, chair."

  • Then we have something delicious, "chip". Maybe you like potato chips, so you're going

  • to say, "I'd like some potato ch, ch, ch, chips." You don't want to say "ship". You're

  • not going to ask someone for a "potato ship". "Potato ship? What is -- a ship of potatoes?

  • Would you like an entire ship of potatoes? That is a lot of potatoes." So you just want

  • a "chip" or "chips". Delicious.

  • Delicious. We have some "cheese". Again, the first part of this sound is the "ch, cheese".

  • Good.

  • The next word. This part on your face is called your "chin". "Ch, ch, chin". What's a "chair?"

  • A "chair" is something that you can sit on. So this is a really good drawing of a "chair".

  • Next word is what you do if you have gum or if you're eating something. Sorry, marker.

  • You're going to "chew". "Ch, ch, ch, chew". We're almost done the "ch" sound.

  • One thing that we had a long time ago when I was in school because I am so young is "ch,

  • ch, ch, chalk". A while ago, we didn't have these beautiful colored markers. We had something

  • called "chalk". Probably maybe when you were in school, the teacher had, not a whiteboard

  • but a blackboard, and would write on a blackboard with something. That little thing is called

  • "ch, ch, chalk". Good.

  • So we've practiced the CH sound. Now, it is on to the "sh". I have done lessons before.

  • So if you have problems with S and SH, please look on the website, www.engvid.com, and we

  • have lessons on SH and S. But we're not doing that. What we're comparing is the CH and the

  • S.

  • When you make the SH sound, you're going to put your mouth like this. It's similar with

  • the mouth with the CH. Except "sh", you have to blow air very quickly out of your mouth.

  • So you're going to be like "sh". When I was a child and as I got older, people would always

  • say, "Shh! Ronnie, stop talking." They wouldn't say, "Chh! Ronnie", they would say "shh".

  • So the sounds are very similar, but the S is going to take more power from your stomach.

  • So you're going to have to protect or say the "sh" stronger. So "ch" is like this, and

  • this one is "sh". "Ch, ch, sh". This sound is much longer and stronger than this one.

  • So let's go through the "sh" side.

  • This word is "share". "Share" means if I have something and you don't have any, I will give

  • you some; I will share with you. Okay? So you have to be careful, and you don't want

  • to say "chair". "Can you chair with me?" "I don't think I know how to chair with someone.

  • I can share with you, but I'm sorry, I do not know how to chair with you." This is a

  • verb. "Chair" is a noun.

  • As I said before, we have the word "ship". One thing you must be very careful about is

  • you have to really say the P at the end of the word as well. The pronunciation of the

  • P is important because if you don't, you might say a naughty word like "shit". So you don't

  • want to say "shit"; you want to say "ship". The P is "puh" at the end. So you're going

  • to say "ship". Okay?

  • If you're referring to someone, you're going to say "she's". "She's beautiful." This is

  • a short form for "she is". Usually, you have to use an adjective after this one. So you

  • can say, "She is beautiful. She is funny." Okay? It would be very strange if you said,

  • "Cheese is funny." "Is it"? Is cheese -- no. Cheese isn't really funny. She's funny, but

  • cheese not so much." Unless you are doing some crazy drugs and cheese is talking to

  • you. I don't think it's that funny.

  • The forward part of your leg is called your "shin", okay? You guys know I'm such a very

  • good artist. I'm going to draw a leg. Watch out. In detail. This is quite spectacular

  • if I do say so myself. I've just done the foot wrong. That's okay. It's a frog. A "shin"

  • is kind of the bone in the front of your leg. This part is called your "knee" as you can

  • see because I'm such a good artist. And this is your frog foot. Your "shin" is the front

  • part of your foot here. So it's a "shin", okay? If you play football, maybe someone

  • kicked you in the shin. If they kicked you in the chin, that would be a whole different

  • story.

  • Something you might wear on your frog feet to cover them is a "shoe", "shoe". And -- "Oh,

  • my god! What just happened?" Shock! "Shock" is like a good -- sorry. A bad surprise. For

  • example, if somebody was at work and they fell and broke something, maybe they would

  • text you and say, "Hi. I broke both of my arms." I would be in shock. "Shock" is a bad

  • surprise. So this sound is "sh, shock, shoe, shin, she's, ship, and share."

  • Are you ready to put them together and compare them? This is where it becomes difficult.

  • This is where you -- you -- have to practice yourself. I can't do anything more than just

  • tell you to practice.

  • So please repeat after me. "Chair, share." The next one we have is the CH word. So you're

  • going to say, "ch, ch, ch, chip and ship". Okay? "Potato chip" and maybe a "ship". I

  • don't know what kind of ship you can have. So "ship", "ch, ch, chip".

  • Delicious. Delicious, but not funny. "Ch, ch, cheese." The next one is the girl who

  • is quite humorous -- "she's". One thing that will help you do this if you're having problems

  • -- because they do sound so similar -- is to kind of make this like a long S. So like

  • "Shhh, she's", and this is "cheese". It's faster. Okay?

  • This word, "chin". And this word, "shin". "Chin, shin." Disco time. We've got the next

  • word, "chew", and the thing we wear on our feet, "shoe". "Chew, shoe".

  • The last two. Are you ready? "Chalk. Ch, ch, chalk" and "shock". "Chalk, shock". We're

  • going to go through them one more time. See if you can get them correct. One thing that

  • you can do to help you is you can record your voice. If you have some kind of a smartphone

  • -- if you have a stupid phone -- or some kind of recording device, a good thing to do to

  • help with any words you want to say in English is to listen to yourself speak. Then, you

  • can hear and go, "Was that 'chew' or 'shoe'?" So please feel free to record things, listen

  • to them, erase them. Digital era. We can do what we like.

  • So "chair, share", "chip, ship". Your turn. Then, we have "cheese" and "she's". Good.

  • "Chin, shin". Your turn. Do it again. "Shh" -- that's better. Good. "Chew, shoe". "I chew

  • a shoe." Good. Remember to make this one short. "Chew" -- good. And this one, "chalk, shock".

  • Your turn. That was excellent. Good job. You did it.

  • So if you have problems eating ships and not chips, if you think that she's beautiful,

  • but they think you said "cheese beautiful", review, review, practice, record it. Let me

  • know how it goes. 'Til then, bye-bye.
