    I can't see, though. But I think I get the position right!
    I'm sorry, but I can't answer this question. I haven't seen what you touched with your finger and I don't know what you consider the middle. Have you tried doing what I advised in my previous post?
    Well, I think I have. you told me to raise your back of the tongue and touch the soft palate and I did. But I don't know if I'm doing it properly.
    Your welcome. Instead of stopping asking questions altogether, you might want to consider paying attention to the answers.
    well, maybe I'm not really paying attention to those replies well. But I can tell you for sure, I read every word they replied me and then I replied them right back. I think I ought to reread those thread I posted before. Thanks again!
    By the way, I'm going offline as I've been using computer since this morning. Nighty night! See you tomorrow!

    If you reply to my post in the quotation box, please use a different color. It's very likely that I won't notice your reply if it's the same color as the rest of the quotation. Or just reply outside of the quotation box.

    No, this is not what I said. I said

    To find your soft palate, touch the back side of your upper teeth with the tip of your tongue. Start sliding the tip of your tongue back. You will first touch your gums, then your alveolar ridge (an uneven and hard surface), then your hard palate (even, hard). If you keep sliding the tip of your tongue back, pressing it against the roof of your mouth, you will find out that at some point the roof of your mouth bends up and becomes a soft surface. That's where your soft palate is.

    I'll give it a shot before making any other reply. Thank you!
