*claps hands loud n purposefully; twice*
'now class, pls settle down. n take out ur textbk 'Phonetic Alphabets' n let's get started with the day's lessons.'
'pls flip to page 102. the first word that i'm gonna teach u today is 'stub'.'
'the pronunciation key for stub is (stu(a short u. cant seem to type that pronouciation out here)b)'
'now pay close attention as i teach u how to pronouce the word correctly.'
'let's start by partially closing our mouth n let a friction or rustling of breathe out for a prolonged 'S' sound. then we place the tip of our tongue such that it touches or is near the upper ridge of the gums of the upper front teeth n pull our tongue abruptly backwards to let out a 'T', followed by a extra short 'u' sound such that i can't hear it audibly n lastly, we produce a sound by the complete closure of the oral passage and subsequently release with a burst of air with the tongue in the resting position as the grand finale for 'B'.'
'that's quite easy isnt it, class? now let me hear all of u going 'stub'.'
'gd gd. once more so that u will get the hang of it.'
'excellent class. keep up the good work. now, i gtg for my cig break. tata for now. till next wk. remember to keep practicing your 'stub's.'
*walks out with long cig already lit in hand*
