Pronouncing "ng"

I'm having trouble pronouncing "ng", is it pronounced like it is in "ing"?

It can be a hard sound for English speakers to learn how to use at the beginning of a syllable, so here's a tip: say something like "ing-ing-ing-ing" repeatedly, and notice how your tongue forms the ng. Then just shift how you're thinking about what you're saying, so it's "ngi-ngi-ngi-ngi" instead. It can take a little practice, but it shouldn't be too hard.

An excellent way of teaching ng, I will remember that one.

That works pretty good, Thanks
