-------TODAY’S LESSON
In today’s lesson, we are going to learn the correct pronunciation of the number "Three (3)" and many of its associated forms.

The number three is the most difficult to pronounce and I find that most of my students struggle with the "th" sound. Some of my students pronounce the number "thirty-three" (33) as "dirty tree" which can often be amusing.

[0:55] How to make the "th" sound: /θ/

Place your tongue lightly on the back of your front teeth. You need a slight gap with your lower teeth and as your tongue rests lightly in that gap touching the teeth, you release and blow.

The difficult thing about this sound is it takes time to develop muscle holding your tongue in that place. So, it can feel a bit strange at first. This sound is difficult because it doesn't exist in that many of the world's languages.

We start the lesson with the cardinal numbers of the number three, and how to pronounce them:

[1:55] Pronunciation of "THREE (3)": /θriː/
[2:07] Pronunciation of "THIRTEEN (13)": /θɜːˈtiːn/
[2:25] Pronunciation of "THIRTY (30)": /ˈθɜː.ti/
[2:30] Pronunciation of "THIRTY-THREE (33)": /ˌθɜː.ti ˈθriː/
[2:52] Pronunciation of "THREE-HUNDRED (300)": /ˈθriː ˈhʌəd/
[2:57] Pronunciation of "THREE-THOUSAND (3000)" /ˈθriː ˈθaʊ.zənd/
[3:08] Pronunciation of "THIRTY-THOUSAND (30,000)" /ˈθɜː.ti ˈθaʊ.zənd/
[3:10] Pronunciation of "THREE-HUNDRED-THOUSAND (300,000)": /ˈθriː ˈhʌəd ˈθaʊ.zənd/

[3:28] Pronunciation of "MILLION": /mɪən/
[3:48] Pronunciation of "BILLION": /bɪən/
[4:03] Pronunciation of "HUNDRED": /hʌəd/
[4:12] Pronunciation of "THOUSAND": /θaʊ.zənd/

We then move on to the ordinal numbers related to the number three. These are words that indicate position:

[4:20] Pronunciation of "THIRD": /θɜːd/
[4:48] Pronunciation of "THIRTEENTH": /ˌθɜːˈtiːnθ/
[5:51] Pronunciation of "THIRTIETH": /ˈθɜ.ːti.əθ/
[6:27] Pronunciation of "THIRTY-THIRD": /ˌθɜː.ti θɜːd/

We then review the different ways to pronounce the number three when we are telling the time:

[6:44] Pronunciation of "THREE ": /θriː ˌpiːˈem/
[7:05] Pronunciation of "THREE-THIRTY ": /ˈθriː ˈθɜː.ti piːˈem/

We then take a look at words to do with the number three. This is going to expand your general vocabulary.

[7:15]
"Triple" /ˈtrɪp.əl/
"Treble" /ˈtreb.əl/
"Trinity" n /ˈtrɪn.ə.ti/
"Trio" n /ˈtri.əʊ/
"Threesome n /ˈθriː.səm/

[9:28] Finally, I have some helpful repeat-after-me sentences that contain the vocabulary in this lesson which you can use to practice.

By the end of this lesson you should now know how to confidently pronounce the word three and many of its associated forms.
