Speaking drill with ten flashcards
Instructions: say the first word out loud BEFORE turning the flashcard over. Then click the red arrow to see its phonetic transcription, and press Play to hear the word said by a native speaker. Finally, repeat the word out loud a couple of times, along with the native speaker.
Do the same with the remaining nine flashcards.
Let’s do it again
Saying those words out loud, as if you were talking to me, won’t be easy at first. But if you persevere, you’ll make really fast progress. That’s how I improved my English accent! Click here to flip all the flashcards and do this speaking drill again.
Remember: the better you pronounce the /θ/ sound, the more likely you are to distinguish it when others say it.
