THR Pronunciation Hack

THR Pronunciation Hack

Learn how to say THR words more easily!

Hi from Speak More Clearly.

In this training video I want to teach you a pronunciation hack. How to say THR words more easily.

Because it’s hard to get from ‘th’ to ‘r’, the native English speaker’s hack is -don’t stick your tongue out as usual for the ‘th’.

Put the tip of your tongue just between your top and bottom teeth.  Or you can even have the tip just at the back of the bottom edge of your top front teeth. You still have to release air when you say the ‘th’ though.

Then you move your tongue back into the /r/ position from there.

Practise Words:

Thr

Three

Throw

Through

Thrill

Thread

Throat

Threaten

enthrall

I hope that’s made it easier for you to pronounce ‘thr’ words.

That’s how you do the hack. I’ve made an extended version of this video with lots of practise words for you to master this hack. The extended version will be available to members of our online courses!
