Having trouble with Tha sound

I'm having trouble with Tha, which matches with थ in the lessons. Tha sounds more like it's starting with a c or k from the audio; is this correct?

I can help you,Bro...It 's the "TH" of thirsty,thailand...

In English the 'th' of thirsty and the 'th' of Thailand are pronounced very differently (and I suspect most people don't sound the 'h' at all when saying Thailand - for me 'Thai' pretty much rhymes with 'tie). And the 'th' in 'the' is a different sound again. The way it was explained to me was that थ is similar to the sound in the middle of the word 'boathouse'. That taught me to pay attention to sounding the 'h'.

This doesn't work for the many varieties of English that pronounce 'th' as a fricative in the majority of words, including thirsty:

Better for those varieties of English to say it's like the 'th' in the middle of boathouse or lighthouse.
