gujarati pronunciation
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:

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

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.

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!

Hi, I dont have Skype installed on my system.

I am available on GMAIL/MSN/Yahoo/AOL :)

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 Very strange.

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

rushijoshi Aug 18th, 2009 12:28

gujarat_luv Aug 18th, 2009 12:38

now, if i can just figure out how to work this pm system. hmmm, i don't see anything yet. maybe it takes a couple of hours to kick in or something...

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,

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;)
