How to make this sound

GIRL The letter 'G' has two possible sounds. See also JAZZ. GIRL is the voiced minimal pair of the KEY. That is, it is made the same way but voicing is added. GIRL is made by lifting the back of the tongue up towards the top of your mouth at the back of the mouth. Bunch the back of your tongue in from the sides at the same time, and release the tongue down suddenly while switching on your voice at the same time.
