Difficult Sounds to Pronounce #2: the sound GN


Hello guys 🙂 Are you ready for a new lesson??? Today I would like to teach you how to pronounce the sound GN, which can be quite tricky for non native speakers.

Watch the video for pronunciation and examples 🙂 Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below 🙂

A presto ♥
