I've been studying Korean on a daily basis for a few weeks, maybe 2 or 3, and I have to say: It's quite a fun language to learn!
However, I'm still struggling to pronounce certain letters. I study on my own at home on a daily basis, and I use multiple different sources. I've utilized videos, articles, lessons, etc. However, I it seems as if many of them have a different tactic or explanation on how to pronounce these letters. I'm also a little confused on how the position of these letters in words affects the pronunciation.
I specifically struggle with ㅂ, ㄱ, and especially ㅈ.
I've read and heard ㅂ pronounced as a softer "p" sound. However, I've also heard it pronounced as a "b" sound in other words, which I thought was how you pronounced "ㅂㅂ" . I've read and heard ㄱ pronounced as a softer "k" sound, however I've also heard it pronounced as a "g" sound, which is how I thought you pronounced "ㄱㄱ".
Finally, I still struggle with ㅈ. It doesn't sound like a regular "j", as some sources say it does. To me, it sounds almost exactly like "ㅊ".
I could really use some help here. I'm not sure if I'm pronouncing them wrong, or if the sound changes because of it's placement in the syllable, but if anyone would be generous enough to lend me help, I would be very grateful!
