    Default How can I improve my spoken "th"?

    Good evening.

    I have got a short and simple question:
    How can I improve my spoken "th"?
    There are a lot of pupil at my school how don't mind about their spoken english. But I am one of those who is concerned about his pronounciation and his skills in generally.
    I don't know if my "th" is good or not but I woud like to train it.
    When I use simple words like "there,the,math" and so on I have no problems with my pronounciation. But whenever I try to say things like "thirtythreethousandthreehundredandthirtythree (33333)" or the plural of a verb which ends with a "th" it sounds very silly~~.

    I hope that you can help me.

    Greetings Marcel :)

    How about this:

    YouTube - Real ESL Video Lesson #7 - Pronounce TH
    and as a joke this:

    YouTube - Thank you - Pronunciation of TH - Showing tongue
