Russian Щ – Exercises from speech therapist

Russian Щ – Exercises from speech therapist


Hello everyone! today i’m going to show
you how to pronounce Russian Щ sound. Because sometimes it’s pretty confusing,
and people don’t understand the difference between Ш and Щ. so let’s get started! Way number one is for those who know how
to pronounce Russian Ч sound. CH CH CH and if you cannot, please have a look at
my another video where i teach how to pronounce Russian Ч. If you can do
that, try to make a long ЧЧЧЧ. Like this. Hear that? This Ч turns to Щ.
Try again. Long ЧЧЧЧ. While doing that try to break the
air flow like this. and while doing that try to analyze
what’s going on inside your mouth. where exactly your tongue is. So next time you’ll be able to put it right there from the very beginning to pronounce Щ.
not starting with Ч, but exactly with Щ. so the key here is to understand the
right position of your tongue and the “Ч exercise” will help you to do that.
Way number two is for those who know how to pronounce Russian Ш sound. And here i want you to make a long ШШШ. While doing that long ШШШ sound, you slowly move your
tongue a little bit forward. Very slowly. until you start hearing the clear Щ
sound. Mark that position and remember that this is exactly the position you
need to pronounce Щ. Try slowly, moving your tongue very
slowly until you hear that Щ sound. After you learn how to pronounce the
isolated sound I mean just Щ Щ Щ, try to add some vowels. I mean ЩА ЩО ЩУ ЩЕ. Maybe your
Щ will be too long at the beginning, but it’s ok. You need time to practice it.
After a while you’ll make it short. But it’s absolutely not
a problem if it’s too long now. Then vowel comes first. So, practice like that for
several days and you will learn how to pronounce Russian Щ perfectly. And that
was it for today. Thank you very much for watching! Don’t forget to subscribe to my
