This video will give you the opportunity to practice the ‘aa’ as in ‘bat’ vowel sound. If you have not already watched the video on how to make that sound, you should watch that first. You will hear a word with the ‘aa’ as in ‘bat’ vowel sound and then be given time to repeat that word while looking at a picture for the correct mouth position for the ‘aa’ as in ‘bat’ sound. I encourage you to do this with a mirror so that you can watch your own mouth and make sure that you are taking the correct mouth position.
