Teach G Sound

At this level, you are going to teach your child how to say G correctly. Use all the information you learned in How To Say G to make this process easier.

Teach G With A Mirror

We are going to teach your child the G sound using a mirror. This technique works well for most children. However, if your child is distracted by the mirror, remove it. You can follow each step simply by looking at each other.

G is not a visual sound which means that your child cannot easily see how to say it by looking at you. You must use more tactile and verbal cues to elicit a correct pronunciation. 

Mirror Game


  1. A mirror

How to do activity:

  1. Sit in front of a mirror with your child.
  2. Look into the mirror and encourage your child to do the same.
  3. Say G and explain how your tongue is in the back of your throat. You may need to touch your throat while saying G as direction words can be difficult to understand.
  4. Encourage your child to say G while touching their throat.
  5. If your child is having a hard time grasping the concept "back of throat," open your mouth really wide as you say G so your child can see how your tongue bunches up in the back.
  6. Say a syllable with G such as "go," "ga," "goo," "ug," or "ag" and have your child repeat. Provide cues as necessary.
  7. Practice syllables that have G in the beginning, middle, and end.

That's it! Easy!

Helpful Tips:

  • Bring attention to your throat and tongue
  • Make it fun!


Once your child can say G, move on!
