Q: Por favor, mostra-me como pronunciar these things

and please tell me a way to pronounce the "TH" in a good and natural way.
A: This is a fun one! There are different ways that TH is pronounced depending on the word (at least in American English). I'll describe how to pronounce both.

The first one is not voiced, but is very definite, and is used at the ends of words like, 'both', 'tooth', 'seventh' and 'wrath'. However, it is also sometimes used at the beginnings of some words like, 'thick', 'thought', and 'thief'. The second pronunciation is much softer and is used mostly in demonstrative words such as, 'this', 'the', 'that', and 'those'. The softer, voiced version is also usually used when TH is in the middle of words like, 'feather', 'breathe', and 'northern'. HOWEVER, there are no hard and fast rules about which is used where, unfortunately. For instance, the word 'mouth' uses non-voiced, while 'mouths' uses the voiced version. If you want to be safe, the voiced version is more commonly used, so you'll probably be okay if you default to that when you don't know.

Now for the pronunciation! The definite non-voiced version is pronounced by placing the tongue between both the top and bottom rows of teeth, and kind of biting down while pushing air through the small openings. It should sound like air escaping from a hole in a tire, similar to the sound of the letter F (which is similar but involves the lower lip between the teeth rather than the tongue).

The voiced version is similar in the way the tongue is between the teeth, although it sounds more natural if you place the tip of the tongue against the back of the upper teeth. The most important difference here is that you don't bite down at all, you just make sure that the tongue contacts the teeth. Now, instead of pushing air through your teeth and tongue, you'll instead use your voice to vibrate your tongue against the teeth. At first you should try doing this for a bit longer than you need to in order to get the feeling of the tongue vibrating; but you'll eventually want to pronounce this as just a quick pass of the tongue against the teeth as the voice vibrates them together.

Hope that helps!
