Hello and welcome to another Kameari Nova blog entry!🐢
How are you all doing?((´∀｀))
Today we’re going to look at common pronunciation mistakes people here make when speaking English.
The most obvious example is the letters “l” and “r”.
In Japanese, the “ra, ri, ru, re, ro” set of sounds are very similar to both of these and it is tempting to simply use these for both “l” and “r”.
However, this has two problems.
Firstly, this leads to very different words sounding the same.
A previous teacher here liked to compare the word “lice” with the word “rice”,
for example (lice is an insect that makes your hair itchy and rice is food).
Secondly, this leads to incorrect pronunciation of both sounds.
The consonant sound in “ra, ri, ru, re, ro” is actually halfway between an “r” sound and an “l” sound, so the sound will be slightly wrong for both “lice” and “rice”.
So what should I do?
to be continue…(´∀｀*)
