  • How to Pronounce ‘J’ and ‘Y’ sound in English?
  • Do you face problems saying words that start with ‘Y’ and ‘J’? If you are a Spanish speaker wants to learn English, you will experience difficulties in pronouncing these letters.

    In the English language, to make the ‘J’ sound you need to place your tongue behind the top teeth and close your teeth together so that the tongue is hidden, and then let the air flow. Whereas, the ‘Y’ sound is similar to a ‘long e’ in both sound and formation. However, the tongue is held closer to the tooth ridge during the ‘y sound’.

    Here is an exercise that will help you to understand the difference in the sound of both the letters ‘Y’ and ‘J’.
