Dear Team JapanesePod101/Yuki [由紀],

I understand that Sotsugyou [そつぎょう/卒業] is “graduation”, but I can’t heart the word correctly. I hear: [そつにょうし] instead of [そつぎょう/卒業]. Why is the “gyou” so soft that it sounds like a “nyou”?

「ぎょう」はソフトに「にょう」に言葉?

(’Gyou’ is a soft ‘nyou’ in the word?)

言葉 = 卒業

(word = graduation [sotsugyoushi])

本当にありがとうございます!

Thank you so much,

Megan Somers

Graduation actually means ‘sotugyou’ 卒業….😞
Please check the spelling above.

Why do the words related to graduate have a “nyou” sound when “ぎょう” (gyou) is used? I hear an “n” and not a “g”.
