The /h/ consonant sound is one that we've missed in our videos! So, here are some quick practice exercises to review.
Remember that for the American English H sound, you need air to leave your mouth--it is an audible sound, and it comes most clearly from the back of the throat.
This is different than what you'll see in some languages, such as Italian where the /h/ doesn't really produce a sound of its own. Similarly, Portuguese speakers often confuse /h/ and /r/ sounds in English.
Our latest video will give your practice with some common words that start with the letter h. Then, you can practice with some complete sentences to see where the h appears, as well as where it doesn't.
