Help about pronunciation of क (ka or cha?)

Hi,

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.

It's pronounced as "ka" like you guys pronounce the word "karma" . Watch this video to learn the correct pronunciation of all Hindi consonants.

The audio file sounds like 'ka' as in 'king' to me.

Pronounced like the first syllable (or ca) in cat
