Pronounce "Joseph" and "Moses"

The two lessons for today are almost like the battle we had with Mr. S and Mr. Zed here. It's time to take up our swords and fight again. Are you ready?!


Lesson 11
Word: Joseph

Pronunciation: (Not so phonetically written but as exactly pronounced like a Nigerian)

I had always pronounced the "s" as "s". But discovered the right pronunciation is "z"

Wrong = \ˈjo.zif\
Right = \ˈjo.zif\

Listen below:



The best time to learn how to pronounce 'Joseph' is now. We always mention it during the Christmas' season. Abi?


Lesson 12
Word: Moses

Pronunciation: (Not so phonetically written but as exactly pronounced like a Nigerian)

Be not deceived, there is no "s" in the pronunciation. That's a Mr. Zed disguised as Mr. S.  *smh*

Wrong = \ˈmo.sis\
Right = \ˈmo.ziz \

Listen below:



Argh! If we have to kill one, who should we kill - Mr. S or Mr. Zed?!

Like play like play, we've had a dozen of lessons on 'Words with Amaka' already. Whao! How time flies these days. You, my students sweethearts have been awesome. I've had a great time doing this with you. Thank you.


So our first session (of 12 lessons) has now ended for the year. By God's grace, we shall commence with season 2 next year. :)
