It seems as if most of the confusion is from people using romanization. ㅏ Doesn't make a sound like "ay" or "ah". It makes the "aw" sound. ㅣ Doesn't make a sound like "ie" or "ih". It makes the "ee" sound. Once you memorize the alphabet, abandon romanization, the characters don't make the exact sounds romanized, it's really hard to replicate most of the sounds with the simple English letters.
http://www.ryanestrada.com/learntoreadkoreanin15minutes/ this helped me a lot when i first started learning hangul and the pronunciation of the hangul. some things are different when it is romanized because hangul doesn't have a direct roman character translation.
I don't het how it translates to child, milk, like I don't understand how your suppose to figure that out
I don't get how your suppose to sound that out like what when was I suppose to learn it

??? i dont get it. i know how to pronounce the letters but idk how to translate it. help please
아 is "a" and 이 is "i" then together u get "ai", if you say it fast it'll sound better. 우 is "u" and 유 "yu" because of the added mark at the bottom that makes it a y. so together it is "uyu" pronounced as u-yo. hope this helps and aye namjoon :D
it's difficult when we have to match them because it makes a sound that looks different than how it should be pronounced so I fully agree with @Paul862466 on this topic.
why does 우유 sound something like uio but it is u+o? I mean, is there any kind of rule or something?
Basically, 우 is like the "u" in blue, and 유 is a hard "y" + the 우 sound. Together it's kinda like "uu-yuu".
The double dash vowels have a hard "y" attached to the beginning -- think of 야, 여, 요, 유.
Ai uyu ...lol in Turkish Ai is like a sound we make seeing a 'cute kid' and Uyu means sleep .
The Korean pronunciation for "milk" sounds like that "ohyo" thing Sana says a lot. Any Onces here? lol
I dont get how the sound "ayi" or direct translation "a + i" is child unless im an idiot and sounds like =/= spelled like. Which im 99% sure is true and im an idiot
