Well, of course I'm not a native speaker of Russian, but we were told that if the is a ь present, try to pronounce the consonant as if you are about to say a "j"-sound after it (not pronouncing the j of course) – so tip your tongue to the top of your mouth afterwards.

For example: брат -> /brat/ and брать -> /brat(j)/
Also, the ь makes the "a"-sound in брать slightly longer.

Hope this helps, and that I'm not mistaken of course ;D Once again: this is how we learned it in pronounciation class ;)

Thanks for helping me out.  :)

But I think that’s possible with voiceless consonants ‘t’.  Try to say ‘j’ at the end of the word семь while the sound of the letter ‘m’ is made using lips.  You will need close your lips and you won’t be able to start pronouncing ‘j’  having your mouth closed. :)
