Pronunciation tips:

  1. Compare the soft “л" in the first line with the hard “л” in the second line.
  2. The letter “ч” is pronounced like “ш” in the words “что”(what) and “коне́чно” (of course).

Reminder: Listen to the words above and then read them. Repeat as many times as you need to feel comfortable with your
pronunciation.
