Hi Riiana,

I have to admit that it can be pretty difficult to pronounce many of the Japanese words correctly, can't it? I lived in Japan for a year teaching English in Nagano City and I still struggle to pronounce Japanese words correctly!

I like that you've encouraged others to use Google if they need some help with their spoken Japanese. One of the best resources on the net for learning new languages is called Forvo (

You can type any word that you want to into the 'Forvo' website and it will provide you with the correct way to pronounce it. I just tried typing 'konnichiwa' into the site and it worked perfectly. Feel free to try it, if you'd like :)
