I have many problems to say the word "GIRL", so I found a great video which explains it and I want to share it with you:

How are you coming along with this sound? Are you able to say girl now :) The video was very informative. I did not think of adding another r sound to girl. We can practice next Saturday for sure!

No worries. It is amazing seeing how well you apply yourself. You must be very successful in your career if you apply the same level of effort.

I have not created any new lesson yet, but I did create a video lesson page. I will try and create a pronunciation lesson plan tomorrow.
