Dates - the 'th' sound

This is a troublesome spot for students - that darn 'th' sound in English. We use it so much and English learners can't produce it easily. So, we worked on dates in level 1 classes.

  • 1st
  • 2nd
  • 3rd
  • 4th
  • 5th

These numbers go beyond dates though. When we talk about floor levels in a building, streets and avenues, the position of someone or something in a line. 

Practice with students by pointing out when you're using these types of numbers so that they increase their listening awareness.

It's a friendly place
