In my country the joke is that Chinese people pronounce the R's like L's.

You do realize that "asian" is neither a nationality nor a language? That asia is home to a great number of different languages... now I noticed your name and I don't think you're someone who'd understand that...

Exactly, so how do we know if they're trying to pronounce an R or pronounce an L and it comes out making the R sound (context)? If you knew this stereotype and assumed that when they said anything with R in it they were actually trying to say L, like a jackass, you could get it confused I suppose. But this content is **** and OP is a jackass.

Let's make this clear
Chinese = there "R"s turn to "L"
Japanese = there "L"'s turn to "R"s

******** , I'm chinese and I know for a fact that R's do not turn into L's. Never have I heard any asian do that. My L's turn into R's ever so often, but never the other way around.

And seeing that Kim Jong Un is Korean neither is relevant. When it comes to Korean pronounciation the ㄹsign is used as both R and L. Generally it is pronounced as R when placed between vowels like in 사랑 (sarang) which means "Love"

actually, even then, it still doesn't produce the same 'r' sound as in english.

your tongue still should make contact with the front-roof bit of your mouth.

Yes the Korean R is much harder and has more vibrating sound then english R. Which is fine by me as my native language has the same pronunciation of R

there are asian countries that can pronounce the L and R perfectly, an example would be Philippines.
#27 to #25 - glaciel (07/05/2013) [-]
Well I don't know much about Philippines I just wanted to provide some additional knowledge
User avatar #28 to #27 - taokami (07/05/2013) [-]
well, that's one fact that was truly fun

And if you heard that in an asian accent you would try to make the r sounds into L sounds
