The W Sound vs. The V Sound | American Accent Training


Do you have difficulty distinguishing the English W and V sounds? In this American accent training lesson, you will learn how to say the W sound and how it is different from the V sound. The key to distinguishing W and V is understanding how the lip positioning differs for each sound. Be sure to grab the free 100 Common W Words PDF that goes with this lesson! 

Key Takeaways:

1) /w/ is pronounced by rounding the lips out, away from the teeth

 2) /v/ is pronounced with the top teeth resting on the bottom lip

 3) Both /w/ and /v/ are voiced sounds with continuous airflow.
