    if you change the place where you put your tongue in your mouth, the problem will be solved.
    before forming th sounds put your tongue before very top of your roof of your mouth-just before(behind) your front teeth then try to pronounce t , many times it is like d though. try that, it will work. you just need to notice the position of your tongue. that is what th is all about. and try www.ielanguages.com there are some informations about that
