Pronouncing the ll sound

I’ve just started the 6 minute course but I’m really struggling with the ll sound. I’ve tried putting my tongue on the roof of my mouth near my front teeth and blowing but it doesn’t sound anything like the speakers on the challenges. I especially struggle when the ll is in the middle of the word for example gwella, just can’t get it. Any tips? Many thanks


Just think of it as putting the tongue in the same position as the “normal” english “L”, but instead if voicing the L you blow air. Maybe this youtube link helps, too:


Have a look through this thread Jayne - there are a few suggestions there. :slight_smile:
