I think 길 is more like "way". Containing highways, avanues, roads, and even small paths in forest or mountain.

In fact, 도로 is more accurate as a word for road. 길 is used for more narrow streets/paths compared to 도로 for the larger paths that you'd call "roads".

How is this pronounced? I can't seem to make the audio make sense with the characters... The audio im hearing sounds like 'chay' or maybe even 'cheel' but shouldnt the first character be a k or g sound?

Korean alphabet don't have the exact same sound as English. In this case, ㄱ if in front is pronounced somewhere between g-k, if in the middle (syllable) it's more like g, and in the end it will be k.

I dont hear it, it sounds like g/k to me, maybe it's your audio?

The pronunciations here often don't seem to sound correct based on the letters. Frequently I go to the Forvo website to listen and it is what I thought it should be. Check it out!

Ok so in Korean kill means road, that makes me think maybe it's better not to drive in Korea? ^^

My way of remembering this one will be to think of roadkill.

This! I also heard it more like 'gae' as dog instead of 'gil' for road.

I heard the audio like : "ke" instead of "kil". ¿Am i reading it wrong?

이 in korean is romanized as "i" but sounds like "e"

So the word is written as 길, romanized as gil, pronounced kinda like "ke-"

Thats how i say it anyway. Feel free to correct lol

We should've learned some grammer(like a simple explanation, anything!) and meaning of 매력, 재미, 인기가 and etc. Good enough, then we would be ready for the sentences We just Jumped from 오, 쌔, 톤, and some pronunciations to frightening sentences... Without even knowing which word is the verb!

Why does "길" sounds like "kye"? Isn't it supposed to sound like "kil"?

Is there a difference between "Road" and "Path" as a translation for 길?

April 14, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/slycordinator

It's closer to meaning "street" than "road". In Korea, 길 is used for the more narrow paths. If you find a wider "road", they'll usually usually call it 도로.

Is a final ㄹ silent? Like in this example, 연필, and 들? I can't hear the final ㄹ in that. Wait! I can hear it in 동물, what is the pattern?
