    Default Questions about pronunciation (my question day? :-)

    Dear teachers,
    Please look at the following words:

    baths, sixth , months, mouths

    How to pronunce such words? I find it very difficult.

    My puzzle is that , say "baths", if I read them, I have to pronunce "th" and "s" separately and clearly. But this really sounds weird, and in movies and radio and television programs I never heard native speakers pronunce them separately and clearly. Oh my god, plz help me.

    Thanks

    Try to pronounce as fast as you can.
    and 1000 times a day. 8)

    Does that help?

    Over emphasized your pronounciation in front of a mirror. Make fun of yourself! Does Japanese have similar sounds? If so play games. Use familar words in rapid session then slip one with ths in.
