Pronounciation Difference: ㅅ & ㅆ

Postby frequentflyer120 » 2008-11-24, 0:49

Can any native speakers help me with understanding the difference between 시옷 and 쌍시옷?
I am able to hear the difference and pronounce the other tensed and aspirated letters (ㅂ,ㅃ,ㄷ,ㄸ,ㄱ,ㄲ, and so on...) but I can't make my tongue imitate the correct sounds for ㅅand ㅆ. Any suggestions?
