Q: What does Why is "th" sound different in 'this' and 'think'? Is there any rule to distinguish them? mean?
A: Unfortunately, that’s just the way English is :(

There are two main ways of pronouncing ‘th’, and there isn’t really a rule that will tell you which one it is. A lot of us native speakers learn pronunciation growing up by listening rather than by reading the spelling.

I can give you an example list though.

‘Th’ in ‘this’:
The
Other
Mother
Father
Leather
Feather
Lather
Bother
This
That
These
Those
Though
Loathe
Bathe
Whether
Weather
Wither
Soothe (common to pronounce th like this when it is surrounded by vowels)

‘Th’ in ‘Think’:
Thing
Through
Throw
Three (thr is usually this pronunciation)
Thought
Thaw
Thesis
Path
Math
With
Both
Myth (usually words ending in th have this sound)
Author
Think
Tooth

Of course, there is a lot more for both :)

Q: Please show me example sentences with th.
A: Th is an ordinal marker that goes after numbers to show their location in an order. However, not all numbers use it.

Do not use Th for: 1 (firST), 2 (secoND), 3 (thiRD) or numbers that end with those, like 41 (forty-firST), 82 (eighty-secoND), 103 (one hundred thiRD).

Do use Th for: 4 (fourTH), 5 (fifTH), 6 (sixTH), 7 (sevenTH), 8 (eighTH), 9 (ninTH), 10 (tenTH), 11 (elevenTH), 12 (twelfTH), 13 (thirteenTH) and so on. So, the majority of numbers will use TH for their ordinals, just not all.

Q: I am not good at pronouncing th sound. I heard that when native speakers make th sound, you stick your tongue between your front teeth and pull quickly. It is easy to say short sentence like "Thank you "
But for example,like the , it often appears so often in a long sentence, I tend to forget to stick my tongue . Do you have any advice?
Making th sound is really tough for Japanene(´ι_` )
A: Hmm, well I have been told by many 日本人that I have good 日本語の発音 and the way I learned was by singing along to 日本の曲.

I would pick a song that I liked, find the lyrics on Google, and then play the song. When the singer started singing, I'd try to read the lyrics and sing along.

Because I can't read Japanese quickly, the singer probably sings faster than I can read, so maybe I can sing the first two words with them but before I've even read the third word they're already on the next sentence lol.

So I have to restart the song many times and just sing until I can't keep up anymore.

Little by little, I memorize the song. Eventually I'll be able to sing the entire first sentence, then the second sentence, then the entire first verse, etc. Until finally, I can sing the whole song.

To memorize an entire song it takes me at least couple weeks (depending on how often I practice), but once I've memorized it, I don't have to read the lyrics anymore. I just listen to the song and sing.

Once I am able to do this, I can focus a lot on my pronunciation. I try to pronounce exactly like the singer. I sing the song over and over and over until my pronunciation is almost perfect.
