  • Does FaceFormer training improve the pronunciation of the S and other sibilants?

Question

Unfortunately, I have difficulty pronouncing the “S” and other sibilants when speaking. Can I hope that training with FaceFormer will improve my pronunciation? Are there any special language exercises for that?

Answer

In the case of disorders of the S- and other hissing sounds, there is a muscular weakness which has to be treated with the FaceFormer. On the other hand, you must also be able to perceive and realize the differentiated pronunciation of the sounds. The sounds are realized imprecisely from childhood on. In this respect, the wrong thing becomes right for us because our brain has acquired a pattern for it.

From the beginning, false movements of the organs involved in speech, tongue, soft palate, nose, etc., were learned as false movements. This has led to a weakening of the muscles. The FaceFormer should definitely be used to strengthen the muscles. Practice over the given period of time and check your articulation carefully again and again. If the disturbances do not completely disappear, you should carry out specific speech exercises. We will be happy to help you.
