But as I can't help thinking as a teacher, I'll take advantage of this song to work on nasal consonants /m/, /n/and /ŋ/ which are pronounced letting the air go out through the nose with your mouth closed.
- Spanish students find it especially difficult to produce the nasal sound /ŋ/ which is represented by the spellings 'ng' as in 'sing' and 'nk' as in 'sink'. To produce this sound you have to stop the air flow through the mouth by pressing the back of your tongue against the soft palate. You can click here to see a short video that'll help you pronounce this sound correctly.
- Paying attention to these sounds, listen to the song "One day" by the American reggae singer Matisyahu.
- Now, listen again and do the gap-fill activity.
