    TH Pronunciation

    Hi guys, I'm looking for some activities that I could use in my ESL classroom to help my learners improve their TH pronunciation.

    They are native french speakers, so they have a lot of problems pronouncing TH, instead saying Dis (as in This) or Trew (for Through)

    If you know of any good activities to get them to practice from books or even websites I would really appreciate it. These are elementary school children so telling them to just put their tongue between their teeth hasn't really worked.

    Thanks a lot!!
    -Joel
