Description: Do your adult ESL students mix up their /th/ sounds with their /s/ sounds and vice versa? They may not be able to HEAR that tricky /θ/ sound as many languages don't have it. If they cannot hear the /θ/, how can they distinguish between it and the /s/? For that, they need practice. Students will hear a word and then select the word they heard from a given pair of minimal pairs. Fifteen minimal pairs are for initial sounds, and 8 use final sounds. Please note that I have this same deck available in an easier version (#1) for students who are not yet reading. They hear the same words in that deck but select either /θ/ or /s/. Like all my decks, I made this deck with adult students in mind. As such, this deck will not appeal to children. It is meant for high school age and older. Be sure to click on the "RELATED" tab to see what bundles include this deck. I based this deck on a worksheet activity from my TH/S Pronunciation resource (pdf) available in my TpT store.
