'th' SOUND - ALL LEVELS


Accent training: ‘th’ sound exercises

Having the accent of a non-native English speaker is NOT a problem.There are about 500 million native English speakers in the world and around 1 billion non-native speakers. So actually, there are far more people in the world who speak English with a ‘foreign’ accent, rather than a ‘proper’ accent.

However, if you want to soften your accent there are some basic exercises that you can do to help reduce your mother-tongue accent when you are speaking English.

Here’s a video of a comedian from Glasgow, Kevin Bridges having an accent reduction session. For English people, the regional accent from Glasgow is sometimes very difficult to understand.

As you will see, he has problems with the ‘th’ sound, which is also a big problem for lots of other nationalities.
