Japanese vowel sounds are consistently only five different sounds, but they can lengthen (as denoted by the makron, the horizontal bar sometimes seen over romanised Japanese words).   Often, we are asked for suggestions on how to teach the sound of “th.” While Speech Buddies offers tools to help overcome many speech difficulties and articulation disorders, we do not have a tool for the sound of “th.” This is what we offer parents who are looking for help teaching their children to correctly pronounce the “th” sound.
