    Re: Three

    I pronounce it /thri:/ too, Guest. Native speakers usually make the /th/ sound by placing the tip of the tongue against the inside of the upper incisors, but learners often do better by being sure that the tip of the tongue protrudes slightly from between the upper and lower incisors.
