Pronunciation SH and CH
SH - the tongue doesn't touch the top of the mouth
CH - the tongue DOES touch the top of the mouth

Problem - the SH sound is the same as the French CH (Shop - F - Chat)
The SH sound doesn't have to have the letters SH (Sugar, Species, Precious)
Danger!- the incorrect pronunciation can be embarrassing or confusing!
Chat (shall we have a shat?), Chit (I need a shit), Cheek (you can kiss me on my sheik), Chips (Can I have it with some ships, please?), Watch (Can I wash the television?)
