The tip also applies to people from many other language backgrounds who are not used to pronouncing the TH sound.

In an earlier post I wrote about how not being able to make the TH sound caused lots of embarrassment with a man alarming a young woman by telling her she had NICE TEETS! Of course he meant teeth – but he had trouble with the TH sound.
