Today’s blog is about the letters ‘s’, ‘v’ and ‘th’ and how to pronounce them in English.
The ‘s’ sound (e.g. sun) is made with your front teeth closed together
The ‘th’ sound (e.g. the) is made with the tongue between your teeth
When you say a word beginning with ‘v’ (e.g. voice), you actually hear your voice while you say the letter
When you say a word beginning with ‘f’, you only hear air while you say the letter (ferry)
A tip for English language learners: if you look up a word in www.thefreedictionary.com, both definition and the pronunciation of the word are provided.
Hope it helps,
