We have four sounds today.
I put the br together because I think it’s easiest to kind of think about those as a unit. So to say consonant clusters or blend,s which are those two sounds that are pronounced together. The two consonant sounds we’re gonna think about starting that r before we even say the b sound. The reason is you want your tongue to be in the right spot for that r so you don’t have a vowel in between the b and the r. It’s not bu r. It’s not that. Got to be ready for that r. So let’s get our tongue ready for the r. So to do this you want the back of your tongue to be pulled way high up. Tip of your tongue is either down or flipped back. It depends on the person, just as long as you are not touching your teeth with the tip of your tongue. Okay now that you know where your tongue is going to be, close your lips for that b sound. As you open your lips then you’re going to start saying the r sound right after the b.
Now we’re going to move to the ow and to do this open your mouth in a wide circle. Tip of the tongue is low, back of the tongue is pulled way high up, and then we’re going to move to a pucker. ow When you move to that pucker that tongue is just going to move to flat in the middle of the mouth.
Then we’re going to end with the z sound. Tip of your tongue is behind the top front teeth or slightly pointed down and your voice box is on and moving. Your tongue does not touch anywhere for that z sound.
Let’s put it all together:
