So, I’ve decided to practice my listening skills. And quite frankly, it’s harder than I expected.
- The “u” sound is omitted like 好き, です (pretty obvious)
- The “i” part in し being omitted (not always). Usually mid-sentence.
- The G (が, ぎ, ぐ, げ, ご) tends to start with “ng” than the solid “g”
- Because of certain omissions, sometimes its harder to decipher different parts of the sentence because the words and particles “blend well” together
How do you get better with listening? Are there any more certain things you need to know like the ones I’ve observed?
