Help about pronunciation of क (ka or cha?)


listening to Duolingo lessons, the consonant क is pronounced as "cha" instead of "ka" (as king) which I listen in many other places and how the pronunciation rules say.

Which is right?

Best regards.

क it should be pronounced as k. च is pronounced as ch. Where did you hear the other pronunciation?

the letter क is pronounced as ka. maybe it is a mishearing on your part or a glitch on your particular server.
