That sounds are really hard to say, But it’s really necessary to
practice it.
Have you either some text or history with this sounds?
Only to practice, like the history you said at your lesson…
Thanks…

Marcos

    yes ”the” story or tongue twist in text would be great!

    sherlocu

      It is my belief that the best way to master pronunciation is through practice. Choral repetion is a useful tool to do; speaking to yourself works wonders as well.

      According to my books, the “Th” sound is a complex one. You hit the nail on the head James when you drew the point of articulation of this sound on the board. Showing how to produce the sound, was the best part.
      However, what you forgot to mention is that there are two variants of this same sound: In the phrases “This book” vs “Thank you”, the initial sound is different; although at first glance you may say that it is the same.

      Thanks a million James. Your great sense of humor makes your lessons memorable. Oh gosh, I love them!

I LOVE THIS LESSON THANK YOU SIR

dolly

hi
i don’t like the videos at all b/c they stop after every 2,3 seconds. it they don’t get buffered,this problem is precluding any possiblity to learn with peace of mind :(

Mahvish

    Hi Mahvish,
    The videos are streamed by YouTube, so they should get bufferred like all of their videos. If your connection is slow, it still might stop during the lesson. To avoid this, press play once, and then pause the video when the lesson starts, and let it download fully before you press play again.
    Thanks for watching!

Mohsen Barati

Thank you James for this lesson, it helped me a lot! But I have a denture or false teeth, this is giving me a hard time for pronouncing the words specially the “TH” sound. This is always rejecting me on my job interviews. Hope you make a video about this matter. Thank you!

nice lesson. thanks

Vivimi

Lil kosher

Thank you so much, like always very useful.

Marta Lopez

I was a doubt when I first listened the song of Madonna titled “Material Girl” because I didn’t understand the sound of the word “material” with the sound “-er” in the middle of this word, similar to the word “matter” ending with “-er” too. The “th” sound was a little easier to learn. Good explanation and performance. Thanks teacher James from EngVid.
