Pronouncing 'th' /θ/ & /ð/ vs /s/ & /z/

Do you say /s/ or /z/ instead of 'th'? This is a common English pronunciation mistake. To make the 'th' sounds, make sure your tongue comes out through your teeth. There are two 'th' sounds in English: /θ/ is the unvoiced sound, meaning just air comes out of your mouth; /ð/ is the voiced sound, meaning your vocal chords make a sound.
