My sister said the same thing yesterday. She said she watched this in a drama or a variety show or a YouTube channel.
It sounds like "copy" so I imagine a bunch of white collar guys drinking coffee near the copy machine
V is 뷔 which on the letter by letter trans is bwi. So they read bi or pi. If you listen closely, they do say Pi, instead a straight forward V
Yep, no F or V sound. Theres a cinema chain in Korea called CGV. Koreans actually pronounce this as 씨지븨
The letters P and F are usually regarded as the same sound. Even in English we say Philippines with that F sound but we write it with a Ph. Same with philosophy
Nor is there a "th" sound, and there are several sounds that we don't generally use in English. Even the "ㅂ" is not pronounced exactly like our "B" and the same goes for ㄱ, ㄷ, ㄹ, ㅈ, and, of course, he double consonants. A shortcoming of using romanization for learning Korean is that it impedes the learning of native pronunciation, as we are programmed to put our own ingrained sounds on the letters we have used for so long.
In Indonesian, it's also "Kopi". Is it also the case in other Asian languages?
nope ,, in india here we call it coffee cz in hindi there are lots of alphabets and sounds so you can pronounce any language word with ease
im surprised by how similar the pronounciation of coffee in Korean and in Indonesian
they are loan words, meaning they come from other languages but are still used in korea
Can someone please explain to me how, in these supposed Alphabet lessons, we are to figure out that the 커 and 피 characters (letters?), neither of which has been previously introduced, together form the word "coffee"? I feel like I missed something basic here. Alphabet 1 and Alphabet 2 seemed to teach us individual letters, but here in Alphabet 3 I don't know what we're getting.
Kopi/Kopee is borrowed from Chinese, i guess. There are many Chinese cefé in my country call coffee kopi.
I think I haven't seen the first char in duolingo alphabet lessons. Is that correct? are they missing it? In fact I don't see that character in google images searching "hangul".
