Review of how to form “n”: Place the tip and front of your tongue on the roof of your mouth just behind your upper front teeth. The sides of your tongue should rest against the upper side teeth. The "n" belongs to the group of consonants called the "nasal sounds" because your voice goes through your nose. This is a voiced sound, so you will hear your voice as you say it.
