Wow, after hearing a small child giggle at me say good bye (안녕히 계세요) I wondered what I could be saying wrong. All my years of training and I sound like a foreigner. Oh, my! Then I realized… the 쌍 ㄴ (double  ㄴ, in english what would be double ‘n’s) difficulty.  Such a simple word and such a problem word. So, while I may be on my way to level 4-5 I am still struggling with some small, but major pronunciation issues. Here is a list of words and their associated sound.
