Pronun: jol-lyeo-yo (joll-yeo-yo is much easier to explain than how to pronounce ‘lyeo/ryeo’)

Anonymous: Hello, I've got a question. When do you speak "ㄹ" R and when L? I can fluent read and write korean but "ㄹ" is my only problem. Pleas help me! Thank You for all the things you taught us on this site. 감사함니다.

okay so this is pretty awkward because just like in english and other languages theres words that just don’t apply BUT as a general rule:

  • at the start of a word ㄹ is pronounced more like an R e.g: 라디오 (radio) 
  • at the end of a word ㄹ is pronounced more like an L e.g: 정말 (jeongmal) 
  • when there are two ㄹs together it’s also pronounced like an L e.g: 빨리 (bballi) 
  • if the ㄹ comes just before a vowel or a filler & a vowel like this: 하루 (haru) or 돌아와 (dorawa) then it’s pronounced more like an R 
  • and if it comes before a consonant e.g: 말해봐 (malhaebwa) then it’s pronounced more like an L 

that’s all i’ve got :) hope it helps anon & thanks for the question~
