TIPS ON JAPANESE PRONUNCIATION
Tip #1 – Pronounce R as L (Kind of…)
Most Japanese I have encountered had always improved my pronunciation with Japanese words by telling me to pronounce my R’s like L’s, with a variation. You will often see words in Japanese spelled with R, such as “Kore” (This). Rather than speaking this as KO-RE. Pronounce it as KO-LE with a fast tap of the tongue to the roof of your mouth when you pronounce the L.
Tip #2 – Japanese doesn’t include the following sounds natively
- V – as in Vacation.
- Th – as in The.
- F – as in Food.
- To Cook – 料理
- To Travel – 旅行
- Car Parking Lot – 駐車場
- Street Fighter, Shoryuken – 昇龍拳
What does Shoryuken mean?
- 昇 – rise up
- 龍 – dragon
- 拳 – fist
