Video transcript


The sound ‘au’ is pronounced by moving from the sound ‘æ’ to the sound ‘u’ and it sounds like this, ‘au’. That was pronounced very slowly and that’s also how you should start when you practice and then once you get better at it, you can increase the speed like this, ‘au’ ‘au’ ‘au’. Eventually it will be very quick such as the word for if we experience pain, we just say, ‘au’, and it’s a bit quicker. I will now read two example words that you can repeat after me. Forbauset, fortau.
