귀엽다. 귀여워요. I always find difficult to pronounce. Its because of 위 -> 여 -> 워


But somehow i have done some practise now.

Btw 일요일, 사람.. i not sure why it in this list.

I was expecting words like 대통령, 안타까운...

Hi Stefanie,


Thank you so much for your beautiful comment, and I am very glad to know you are making a huge progress in Korean!

Yes, these are words that might get tricky with pronunciation, and some of them even make my tongue twisted if I were to say it several times in a row (though I’m a native Korean speaker haha). So I want to give you a big thumbs up for your great work!


Best,

Rebecca

When you say they are hard to pronounce, you mean from reading them in hangul? I don't know if it is because I am French (and we have some similar sounds) but I didn't find them too hard to pronounce when repeating from hearing them. Figuring out how to pronounce them by reading the hangul version was a bit harder.

Thank you for all those great resources and lessons. I am progressing really well.
