Pronunciation of وا
Throughout the Alphabet levels in the Arabic course, the combination وا is supposed to be pronounced 'waa', but it's coming out as 'wi' in the audio. Can this be fixed?
The audio in the course has been critcized by native speakers and we have been warned that it is so bad it should be turned off.
Yeah, I've been very careful to judge the audio against the given pronunciation guides because of this.
I'm still a n00b and don't remember exactly what word it was, but it said it was pronounced something like '2aadru' and instead the audio sounded like '2ador' and I was quite confused.
It should be also noted that in the suffix conjugation (past tense), this combination denotes IIIrd person plural (هم), and it is pronounced as 'u' - عملوا is '3amalu', not '3amaluwa'.
