Being able to describe objects in the environment and discuss potential business transactions is crucial when you travel.
The Japanese word for expensive is Takai.
To pronounce this correctly, let’s first break it down into syllables:
As you can see, you have two separate sounds.
The first sound, “ta” is pronounced like the “to” in the English word tot.
The second sound, “kai”, is pronounced like the “ki” in the English word kite.
Bonus: The word “takai” not only means expensive, it also means tall. So you get two words in one!
Now put the sounds together. Keep repeating the word until you get more comfortable with it. Before you know it, you’ll have it!
