how to pronounce "WORLD" and other similar words

Take a look at my new video that will teach you how to correctly pronounce the word "world." Almost all of my students have a hard time with this word. It consists of combinations of sounds that don't exist in other languages.

Hello Lisa,

You says on your book that the final "s" in the words "is" and "has" is pronounced as /z/. Then what if when "it is" and "it has" are contracted to "it's", does the "s" remain /z/ sound?

Many thanks,
Alex

Hi, I have a question, how do you pronounce "with" ? Is the "th" sound voiceless or voiced ? This is causing me a bit of confusion so I thought that maybe you might help me.

Thanks

Paolo
