English Jade: Practice /b/

In this lesson, we will practice the pronunciation and spelling of the /b/ sound in English. As I’m sure you’ll be pleased to hear, /b/ is quite an easy consonant to learn because there isn’t much variation in the spellings. 

If Spanish is your native language, also take care not to pronounce /b/ as a /v/ sound. This error occurs because in standard Spanish the letters ‘b’ and ‘v’ sound alike.

Practice /b/ Words and Phrases: Some Examples from the Lesson Recording

budge: budge up buddy

hobnob: hobnob a lot

bubble: bubble bath

knobbly: Dobby’s knobbly knees

gibberish: scribble some gibberish
