Unvoiced Sounds: It’s National Popcorn Day!

A favorite treat for Americans is popcorn… whether watching movies, a sporting event, or enjoying a light snack at home. Some people will even stop at a movie theater only to buy popcorn! So today, I’d like to help you learn how to order your own bucket to enjoy.


The word “popcorn” is full of sounds made while your voice is turned off, and not just those first “P” sounds. Take a look at my video to hear all the sounds and then try it yourself. With practice, you’ll be ordering a jumbo bucket just like an American!
