The /ch/ sound is pronounced by placing the tip of your tongue behind your top front teeth and blowing air out.

To practice pronouncing the /ch/ sound, try saying the word “chip.” The /ch/ sound is made by making the /t/ sound and adding a slight puff of air. You should feel a slight vibration in your throat when you say the /ch/ sound.

Here are some other words to practice with that contain the /ch/ sound:

  • Choose
  • Much
  • Lunch
  • Rich
  • Teacher

If you are having trouble pronouncing the /ch/ sound, try saying it in slow motion or exaggerating the sound. You can also try placing a finger on your throat and feeling the vibration as you say the sound.
