My friend which is non Russian-speaking asked me how to pronounce the vowel ‘Ы’ in Russian.
The simplest advice I found in Internet is to take a pencil between teeth and to say ‘И’ ([i:]) while trying not to touch the pencil with the tongue. Lay down the tip of the tongue otherwise you will say ‘И’ anyway. When you remember the feeling try to do it again without pencil.
Any advice about grammar are welcome too. Thanks.
