Pronunciation of Words & Phrases are too Quick

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who are already familiar with the Alphabet and how words are broken down by syllables.

What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

I like that the people that spoke the Korean words seem to be Korean or of Korean descent. What I didn't like was that they spoke the words at normal speed and then they tried to break up the phrase by syllables by digital means. It sounded like they used software to cut up the phrase or word instead of having the person actually say the word again slower and say the word or phrase broken up into syllables. Most of the time they broke the word or phrase at an unnatural parts.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Next time have the speakers say the phrase 3 times: normal speed, slowly, and broken down by syllable.
