Double consonants have stronger sounds. Ex: ㅂ usually has the B sound, but ㅃ always has the P sound. Search about batchim that you'll get some more tips that I can't explain easly. Besides de stronger sound and the batchim rules, you'll just need to learn how to spell those words. And, well, since you can write english that have a lot of confusing sounds, I'm sure you will get it soon
duolingo should change the pronunciation of double b's to in between a "b" and "p" sound. just like double d's are closer to a "t" sound. double g's are closer to a "k" sound...
When you pronounce the k (or p, t, ch) in english a little bit of air escapes from your mouth as well. When you pronounce ㅋ, ㅍ, ㅌ and ㅊ this happens too. With ㅃ, ㅉ, ㄸ and ㄲ there shouldn't escape any air so the sound is still strong but cleaner. This also happens in when a word ends with certain consonants (every consonant except ㅁ ㄴ ㅇ ㄹ) as you may have noticed. ㅅ ㅈ ㅌ ㅊ at the end of a word all sound like an unfinished t sound (because you shouldn't let the air escape from your mouth). It is complicated but if you practice enough you will get the hang of it.
If you look up the McCune-Reischauer romanization system you might get a better understanding of the pronunciation. In duolingo they use the romanization system used by the Korean government, but M&R stays true to the Korean pronunciation (which is why it is used by academics who specialize in Korean Studies)
And if you need more explanation or you have other questions about the Korean language I recommend going to talktomeinkorean.com They have really great Korean lessons that are more like short lectures. They're really good as listening practice too.
I wish the audio quality was a lot better, because barely any of those words sounded different to another.
I apologize and I'm also a bit confused , Why are armys yelling JHOPE (I'm not typing the long word) I don't get it. The point is that ALL OF THE COMMENTS ARE LITERALLY JHOPE. I can't like I'm not made but please army don't spam be respectful to other learners who would prefer to learn without the interruptions of dead Kpop jokes. I'm sorry..I just had to say it because nobody will.
this is annoying. I already know most of hangul and am taking this as a refresher. what I dont know are the words that are making me fail the testing. the words should be moved later so that these who know hangul can learn and not review stuff they already know.
if the location of the double-s is at the last position (6 o'clock), then a "t" sound.
It just have a "T" sound when it's a batchim (ends a syllable) and the next jamo (syllable) starts with a consonant.
뽀뽀 is like a soft kiss/peck on the cheek whereas 키스 means more like a "mature" kiss
I try to write 뽀뽀 but it’s a pain but it also says 뽑뽀 is correct. Are they the same?
please,leave a english pronunciation of the words .But awesome app is this i like it nd love u korea
Kinda funny, for words you can generally just choose the two-syllable option.
