Two for Tuesday✌️Learn English HOMOPHONE Pronunciation


Hi everyone Jennifer from Tarle speech with your two for Tuesday homophone lesson. Homophones are words that are pronounced exactly the same way, different meanings, different spellings.

Our words today are:
loan which is something borrowed like money or to lend money or property and
lone isolated or solitary

So to say this word correctly we’re going to start with that l – l. Touch the tip of the tongue to the back of the top front teeth. Very specifically, where the skin and the teeth meet – l. Hold it there for a second and let the air move out.

Next we’re going to move to that o and to do this open in a wide oval shape and move to a pucker. Your tongue is going to start low in the mouth, back of the tongue is pulled high up, and then it’s going to move to Flat in the middle of the mouth, for that oh, for the pucker part.

Then we are going to touch the tip of the tongue again to the back of the top front teeth for that n – n. Air will move out of your nose for that n and just hold it there for a little extra second.

Let’s put it all together.

lone loan lone

And now for a sentence:
She got a loan for the lone house on the island.

Give it a try people will notice the difference.
