    Do you know how to pronounce any of these words?:
    bees
    cheese
    he's
    keys
    peas
    seas
    "These" rhymes with them. It is like say "me" and adding "z", to give a longer sound like "meeez")
    "This"
    rhymes with kiss, miss.

    David, you are correct. The six words you listed all rhyme with 'these'.
