From Mandarin Chinese to English

Helping with the TH sound challenge

😊
One of the strong accent points when learning English as a Mandarin Chinese speaker is the TH sound. Your brain may process this challenge by making an "S" sound. This allows you to get the message across but with a strong accent. Try this simple exercise in front of a mirror. I know it seems very basic, but if you go slowly and really emphasize the TH sound, your brain will catch on and you will sound much more refined in your English😊

    Hi I’m an English tutor in a cram school in Taiwan. I was also helping my students with the th sound earlier today. It’s really hard for them in the beginning but I hope they’ll get it one day after the tons of practices I make them do 😂.

    It’s definitely important. It reminds me of a story that when a ship was sinking and the crews was calling for help: we are sinking! the person who answered the phone was like: Hello! what are you thinking about…

    Although I can sense the differences between s and th while I am listening, however, I have a tiger tooth at the front of my mouth, it’s very painful for me to pronounce the th sound.
