Hello all, my name is Mike and I'm a student of Gujarati. I was wondering if someone could help me out with pronouncing Gujarati. I have my own language podcast here:
http://readingproficiency.mypodcast....4_archive.html

I have made a recording in Gujarati however no native Gujarati speakers have checked my recording for accuracy. Can anyone help out here?

Also, I have a couple of Gujarati sentences that I translated, if someone could help there also that would be great!

thanks, mike

Hi,

I listen your recording, and it seems you did good try.

It is not upto date and I can rate 3-4 out of 10.

I will create my own recording and will upload soon.

Regards
Rushi

A native Gujarati speaker!!


Wow I'm surprised! I didn't think there were any Gujarati speakers here since I never received any type of response but I guess there are some or at least one. Do you have Skype? I would love to voice chat with you there and go over Gujarati pronunciation. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

Ok, we can voicechat via Yahoo messenger then although I'm not sure how well the voicechat service works there. It's worth a try anyhow. What is your YM ID and what is a good time to chat there with you? I was going to send you a private message on here but there is no PM system here on indiamike.com. Very strange.

Mod note : The PM system will get activated once you have a post count of more than 10.

Click on the name 'rushijoshi' in this post. it will open a menu. second option will be 'send a private message to rushijoshi'.

Gujarati is my mother language and i live in Gujarat as well (home of Gandhi) if you need any help in learning, feel free to ask

Hello all,
My name is Ashley. I too am learning, or trying that is, to learn Gujarati. However I know very very little. I am starting with basic conversational phraises; hello, how are you, that stuff. I am not really taking corses or anything of the sort for I am a student and can't aford such things, so I have had to use online resources which are hard to come by.
When I found this board I was looking up ronounciation of Gujarati words. I was hoping that somebody on here wouldn't mind connecting with me and helping me learn a little. I can communicate in just about every way, so let me know how best to contact you.
Thank you,
Ashley

Commendable, I must say!

Here it is in English. The underlined a is to be pronounced as in a thing. The double letters mean emphasis. T is always pronounced as in Quotro. Tried my best

"Criket premiyo jay-knee chellaa ketlaac samaythi aatoortaapoorvak raah joy rahya hataa. Tay Indian Premier League knee bee-ji season no shaniwaar thi praa-rambh thaee rah - yo che. Cape Town khaa - tay aavti kaalay pra-rambh-ic match ma Sachin Tendulkar knee moolaa-qaat un-nay Mahendra Singh Dhoni Chennai Super Kings vachay t(as in 'to')akkar thaa-shay.

Best of Luck!
