after listening a few times i decided to type VIRINO and not VIRINOJ . could it be a bit hard to get ? or it is just me ?
I am confused: How does one pronounce the 'jn' in "grand-'jn'"? Thank you for any help or info!
The "j" like an English "y" and the "n" like an English "n", more or less.
So Esperanto "klubojn" has a last syllable that sounds more or less like "(Battle of the) Boyne", and "grandajn" has a last syllable that sounds more or less like the English word "dine". (Though the "a" vowel of Esperanto is not quite the same as the first part of the English "long i" sound.)
Also, there is an audio recording of this sentence if you enable sound in settings.
A-ha! In a previous lesson we were told the cafés are big, as women drink coffee. Now we van conclude that since women like big cafés, bigger cafés get more revenue as more women come, meaning the cafés keep expanding because the women drink coffee.
