(Exercising Your Mind) This is an exercise for helping to develop and strengthen the speaking ability of clearly making different sounds of the letters “R” and “L”.
Some native Chinese speakers find this challenging.
Read the words and sentences to test your ability to clearly pronounce.
Listen to the recording to check the correct pronunciation, and to practice along with the audio.
Start with the word pairs.
Rare – Real
Rarely – Really
- Red raisins are really rare.
- Rain rains rapidly, roughly, and rarely.
- I rarely raise raisins when it is not really raining.
Yellow – Yarrow
Hello – Harrow
Mellow – Marrow
Oranges are orange.
