Everyone makes fun of me when They soon see that I can't say any word with s in it! How do I do it properly?

It's hard to teach you when I'm in front of my computer. Schools have classes that help you with your speech, try one of those and it might work. Or repeat a sentence with the S in it until you get it right.

Well, in school, I heard about that, but I think hardly any teacher would want me to go there! And I tried your suggestions but it never works!

Teachers are supposed to help you, just ask your guidance counselor for a speech class. And you have to keep trying, giving up is stupid.

Your tongue should almost touch the upper side of your mouth. If you stick it out you're doing it wrong.

It's kind of a speech impediment where you either over pronounce the "s" or don't pronounce it at all. People grow out of most speech impediments like that. I wouldn't worry too much about it, people will find something to make fun of, ignore those people and concentrate your efforts on the ones who want to be your friend. I'm an adult, people still make fun of me for different things, I don't let it bother me.

I had that problem and spent over a year in speech therapy. I still slip up from time to time. Try to keep you tongue on the roof of your mouth.

I'll try, but I'm so used to the wrong way, I don't think I can ever change!

Practice in front of the mirror for a few minutes a couple of times a day. It will start to come naturally.
