    Cool How to pronounce /t/?

    The consonant /t/ is so cute to me. But I found it confused to pronounce it sometimes. When pronounce /t/, it seems to me that I loses lots of breath (because there is a great puff of air going through the mouth) and feel uncomfortable about that. Besides, /t/ has some allophones, especially glottal stop with the question shape. I would be very grateful if you show me how to make /t/ in proper way. Thank you very much.
