1. Consonant L
Your bottom jaw should be as wide open as possible.
Your tongue should RISE UP (independently of your jaw) and touch right behind your top teeth.
Produce the ‘L’ sound by dropping and relaxing your tongue.
Practice “LA, LA, LA”, keeping your bottom jaw lowered and open while only raising your tongue.
L at the beginning of words
L in the middle of words
L at the end of a word
To produce an L at the end of a word, remember to slowly raise your tongue upward, towards your upper teeth, while keeping your bottom jaw as open as possible. The L sound comes from the tongue movement, not from the placement.
(Using your finger to push down on your bottom teeth to keep your jaw open, may be helpful for practicing.)
