Question

[Portugal] Sound of "lh" - how to learn to do it?

Astrid Creuzburg Astrid Creuzburg (1) on 07/10/13

I have a lot of troubles pronouncing words that contain "lh" - e.g. "vermelho", "pilha", "caralho" (sorry!)

I know how the words are supposed to sound, but despite hard training, my "lho" always ends up sounding either way as "lu" or "lju".

Does anyone have any tips or tricks, so I don't have to embarrass myself in the supermarket anymore asking for "pilas"? ;-)

Like the "lli" in "billiard" or "million"

lha = like the "ll ya" in "call ya"

Hope that helps!
