Voiced “Th”

  • The “th” sound can be particularly difficult for English language learners to master. It is heard in words such as “they,” “that,” “these” and “those.” Many English language learners will pronounce this sound as if it were the letter “d.” “They” therefore becomes “day;” “that” becomes “dat;” “these” becomes “deeze;” and “those” becomes “doze.” This particular “th” sound is also heard in the word “clothe.” English language learners may make the “th” sound heard in “cloth” instead. To solve this problem, students should put their tongues between their teeth, force air through the passage and use their vocal chords to produce the correct sound.

Short “I”

  • Another common pronunciation problem for English language learners is the short “i” sound, heard in the words “sit,” “bit” and “hit.” This sound often ends up sounding like a long “e” vowel as heard in “seat,” “beet,” “meet” and “feet.” Students should relax their mouths and keep the sound short when they make the short “i” sound
