Tips to distinguish between voiced & unvoiced sounds: 1. Put your hands over your ears & say the sounds - you'll hear the voiced sounds. 2. Put your hand on your throat while saying the sounds - you'll feel a vibration for the voiced sounds. 3. Put a piece of paper in front of your mouth when saying the sounds - the paper will move when saying the unvoiced sounds.
