I’ve been reading some books about how to teach the Japanese language recently.
In the text book, ”when you teach how to pronounce Japanese words, using minimal pair should be useful” is written.

For example,
1) ojisan (uncle) and ojiisan (grandfather)
2) obasan (aunt) and obaasan (grandmother)
3) oto (sound) and otto (husband)

Do you think you can pronounce those Japanese words correctly? ^^

1)おじさん と おじいさん
2)おばさん と おばあさん
3)おと   と おっと

皆さんは上記の単語を正しく発音できますか? ^^
