    I have trouble pronouncing these words...

    1. Chip - I got both of these confused.
    2. Ship - I got both of these confused.
    3. Three - Sounds like tree almost when I count fast.

    Can someone lead me to the right place to learn or can you show me a video or audio file.

    Re: I have trouble pronouncing these words...

    Try Forvo - there are thousands of pronunciation audio files there, recorded by people from all over the world. There are some English variants in which "three" is pronounced "tree" (some of Ireland) but there should be no confusion between "chip" and "ship". "ch" and "sh" are very different sounds in English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
